United Arab Emirates: Open letter to the Emirati authorities to free human rights defender Ahmed Mansoor on his 50th Birthday

, Index number: MDE 25/1168/2019

Over 130 organizations call upon the UAE government to immediately and unconditionally release human rights defender Ahmed Mansoor, whose life we believe may be at risk following beatings and hunger strikes to protest deplorable and inhumane prison conditions. The Authorities have convicted and imprisoned him solely for his human rights work and for exercising his right to freedom of expression, which is also protected under the UAE’s Constitution. Amnesty International considers him to be a prisoner of conscience.
