Quarterly Briefing (July - September 2019)
The last quarter in the UAE has been marked by continued infringement on the basic freedoms of prisoners and free citizens alike. It has also seen, however, important international developments regarding the UAE’s violation of human rights in Yemen.
Six years on from the trial of the UAE 94, only one prisoner has been released. Those who remain incarcerated are routinely subject to torture and other mistreatment. Female detainees are especially susceptible to mistreatment, having culminated in the death of Alia Abdel Nour earlier this year.
