ICBU: Rulers of the UAE must be Held Accountable for Practicing Racism

The International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) said that the United Arab Emirates and its rulers should be held accountable because of racism against their citizens who have family ties with Qatari nationals, foreign workers or Yemeni detainees in secret prisons in the UAE or against Qatari students in the UAE.The international campaign revealed that the UAE authorities prevented one of its citizens, married to a Qatari citizen, from returning with her Qatari nationals children to Doha.


The Qatari committee said that the UAE woman Shakra Mohammed Obaid, who is married to Qatari citizen Fahd Abdullah Dhiab, left Qatar on January 23 with her two children, Diab, 2, and Abdullah, four months old, and Qatari nationals to visit her family in the UAE. , and is now barred from returning to Qatar with her two children.

The campaign said that the UAE had violated all human rights laws and international treaties it had signed in its practice of racism in the UAE against its citizens and non-citizens.

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.
