After Being Added to the EU Tax-Haven Blacklist

ICBU Calls International Companies and Institutions to Boycott UAE and Withdraw from Region

The International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) has said that the UAE’s inclusion in the EU tax-haven blacklist comes because UAE domestic and foreign laws provide opportunities for tax evasion and lack of transparency in their application of economic and development standards in tax areas.

 

ICBU called on all international companies to leave the UAE immediately because their presence and work in the UAE has become a suspicious and unjustifiable presence. The boycott campaign also called on other non-operating companies in the UAE with investment ties to stop these investments and relations because of UAE’s tax evasion and its daily violations of human rights.

The boycott campaign supported the EU resolution and called on the United Nations, all international institutions and human rights institutions to work on boycotting and exposing the UAE internationally, after the tax evasion and funding of the UAE for terrorism in the Middle East and its violations of human rights in Yemen and inside the UAE.

 

The International Campaign called for the intervention of the United Nations, the European Parliament, human rights institutions and the international community to stop human rights violations committed by UAE authorities against Yemen and to force UAE authorities to respect human rights laws. The campaign also called on all countries that respect human rights laws and the free world to boycott the UAE because they violate human rights daily, whether in the war in Yemen or with neighbouring countries or citizens or residents.

ICBU said it was launched in the light of the endless violations of human rights practiced by the UAE, as well as its war crimes in Yemen and violations of workers’ rights, as well as the fact that the UAE is the centre of modern slavery. The United Arab Emirates today is one of the leading countries in trafficking in human beings and is one of the main supporters of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
