ICBU Accuses the UAE of Stealing Yemen’s Fishery Resources

The International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) has accused the UAE authorities and their militias operating in Yemen of stealing and plundering Yemen’s fish wealth and transferring them to the UAE through large fishing vessels and military transport. Al-Mukhaa’s fishermen accused the UAE of preventing them from fishing in the territorial waters of the West Coast without justification, and allowed modern fishing vessels to fish there.

ICBU confirmed that there is a fishing vessel arriving in the UAE daily from the shores of Yemen loaded with all kinds of fish to sell for the benefit of UAE military leaders. The UAE military has earlier stolen the rare Yemeni antiquities, trees and birds and were transported to the UAE. The campaign added that the UAE not only committed war crimes in Yemen and killed children, women and the elderly but went to steal Yemen’s fisheries, historical, plant and animal.

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.
