ICBU: UAE Authorities Continue to Violate Human Rights and Detain many Foreigners without Real Chargers

The International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) said that UAE escalates human rights violations after the arrest and prosecution of a British woman Asa Hutchinson of beating and insulting a Swedish businessman. Ms. Hutchinson was arrested in Dubai after she was in a place where some young men and a Swedish man were engaged in fight at a hotel’s lobby in Dubai. Ms. Hitchenston said she was watching the brawl and did not interfere in any way. The British woman managed to escape from detention and travelled abroad using a new passport after her arrest by the UAE authorities and preventing her from leaving the country and losing her residency and her job in Dubai.

ICBU said that the law in the UAE believe the person who contacts the police without examining or verifying the truth of the caller’s stories. Racism is often practiced against foreigners and is aligned with the UAE citizen without achieving justice and transparency in dealing with cases in the UAE. ICBU said the UAE authorities were still detaining and detaining many foreign citizens in their detention camps and confiscating their passports and belongings. 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 foreign residents in the UAE 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 neighboring 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 center 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.
