ICBU: The UAE tortures detainees in Yemen by Smearing their Skin with Iron Bars while they are Alive

The International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) said there were recently published documents about the torture operations used by the UAE and its militias in Yemen. The documents were testimonies of survivors of torture or dissidents from their militias in Yemen.

All detainees in UAE prisons in Yemen are subjected to severe torture sessions such as skin-scraping with iron bars, tortured with stones, using electric shocks, burning the body with molten plastic, squeezing the testicles and inculcating needles under the nails. Hundreds of anti-UAE detainees have been killed, tortured, burned and put on the battlefield to cover torture, but UAE couldn’t cover the burnt skin and removed nails from the body, and they buried them in separate graves.

The UAE is working to eliminate some of the leaders in these prisons from time to time for not disclosing the involvement of the UAE in brutal and heinous torture against Yemeni citizens. The campaign said the UAE also had secret prisons outside Yemen, whether in Africa or the UAE, to torture dissidents and Yemenis. ICBU calls on human rights organizations and the United Nations to exert pressure on the UAE to stop its violations and immediately intervene to release all political prisoners from UAE jails.

The campaign also called on all countries that respect human rights laws, the free world and countries with investment projects in the UAE to boycott the UAE and withdraw all their investments and projects because they violate human rights on a daily basis, whether in the war in Yemen or with neighbouring countries, citizens or residents. The boycott campaign was launched in the light of the endless violations of human rights practiced by the UAE, as well as war crimes committed in Yemen and violations of workers’ rights, as well as the fact that the UAE is a modern centre of bondage
