Dr. Mohammed Al-Roken 

In recent years, the Emirati authorities have cracked down heavily on freedom of speech and expression in the country - so much so that the UAE now has one of the highest rates of political prisoners per capita anywhere in the world. Expressing opinions – particularly when this involves political dissent – too often leads to arrests and disappearances. Dr. Mohammed al-Roken is one of these victims. 

Dr Mohammed al-Roken is a leading human rights lawyer and academic. He has dedicated much of his career to providing legal assistance to victims of human rights violations in the United Arab Emirates. Willing to protect the rights of others at the risk of his own freedom, he often took on cases that were deemed “dangerous” to defend.
