Quarterly Briefing (April - June 2019)

The last quarter has been marked by a continued disregard for basic human rights in the United Arab Emirates. 

The Emirati authorities continue to mistreat prisoners of conscience in their jails. In May, this culminated in the death of UAE aid worker Alia Abdel Nour, who lost her battle to cancer after being denied urgent medical care by the UAE authorities.

This quarter also saw leading UAE rights activist Ahmed Mansoor engage in a month-long hunger strike in protest at his poor detention conditions and unfair trial, which led to a 10-year prison term for his social media activity. 

Finally, in an historic move, the UK government announced its intention to freeze future arms sales to Saudi-led coalition forces in Yemen, including the UAE, following a High Court decision ordering the suspension of new weapon export licences to Saudi Arabia over human rights abuses in Yemen.
