Press Coverage of my Statement on HRDs in Long-Term Detention in UAE

On 10 June 2021, I issued a press release urging the Government of the United Arab Emirates to release Human Rights Defenders who had been sentenced to long-term imprisonment. Mr. Mohamed al-Mansoori, Mr. Hassan Mohammed Al-Hammad, Mr. Hadif Rashed Abdullah al-Owais, Mr. Ali Saeed Al-Kindi and Mr. Salim Hamdoon Al-Shahhi have been in prison since 2013 on charges relating to their human rights work. They should never have been detained.

Here is what the press had to say:
