, Index number: MDE 25/1998/2020

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) should immediately and unconditionally release human rights defender Ahmed Mansoor, who has so far been in prison for three years in violation of his right to free expression, say Amnesty International and the Gulf Centre for Human Rights (GCHR). While he remains detained, the two organisations call on the UAE authorities to move Mansoor out of solitary confinement and give him a bed, books, adequate medical care and regular access to his family. They also call on them to grant independent international monitors, including United Nations experts, immediate access to Mansoor in prison.
