After the Death of a Worker and the Injury of 3 Due to the Fall of a Construction Crane in Abu Dhabi

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

The International Campaign to Boycott UAE (ICBU) accuses the authorities in Dubai of not respecting human rights and negligence in the control of security and safety procedures in the modern countries, where last week an Asian nationality died and three others were injured and classified as eloquent and medium, after the fall of a crane at the site of a building under construction In Al Raha Beach area in Abu Dhabi, and were transferred to Al Rahba and Mafraq hospitals.


ICBU called for the formation of an independent commission of inquiry into the death of the Asian worker. The campaign blamed the UAE for the death and injuries of the workers in the Al Raha Beach area.

ICBU 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.
