United Arab Emirates: Free all those on trial in UAE84 case and drop charges

The defendants include many prisoners previously tried in the mass trial in 2012-2013, the UAE94 case, of whom the majority are now arbitrarily detained past the end of their sentences; GCHR’s Board member Ahmed Mansoor and academic Dr. Nasser Bin Ghaith; as well as others in exile.
