UAE: New trial marred by human rights violations
Twenty Egyptian and 10 UAE nationals, including at least three prisoners of conscience, face long prison sentences in a new mass trial whose latest session took place on 17 December. Those detained have apparently not been allowed to see a lawyer. Their verdict is due on 21 January 2014. If convicted, they will have no right to appeal.
