After the death of two workers burned in a furnace inside an aluminium factory

The UAE still Tops the List of Countries that do not Respect Human Rights

The International Campaign to Boycott the UAE (ICBU) accuses the authorities in Dubai of not respecting human rights and neglect in the control of security and safety procedures in modern countries, where yesterday two workers died in an oven in an aluminium factory in Dubai due to extreme heat, and a colleague said that work is stopped at this plant Days ago according to the decision of the management of Emirates International Aluminium Company due to maintenance work, and the presence of workers there was also a decision of the management of the factory despite the ban.

The campaign called for the formation of an independent commission of inquiry into the deaths of workers and other accidents recently in the UAE. The campaign blamed the UAE for the burning of workers and their deaths in the aluminium furnace. CBU said Dubai was abusing foreign workers in the United Arab Emirates and violating international human rights treaties and conventions on a daily basis in the UAE.

Foreign workers in the UAE also suffer from a work visa that forces them to obtain an Emirati sponsor who always controls workers in all aspects of life in the UAE. The law obliges the Emirati sponsor to obtain the sponsor’s permission in everything related to his life and work in the UAE.

ICBU revealed that workers were afraid to report such violations to authorities because Dubai authorities had always threatened to deport them to their country or to detain them in their prisons. ICBU also calls on the international community to intervene immediately to stop human rights violations in the UAE and to force the authorities in the UAE to respect human rights laws and 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 human-trafficking and is one of the main supporters of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East.
