Khaled Fadhel Ahmed Jassim in solitary confinement

خالد جاسم

Geneva on October 2, 2014

The prisoner of conscience Khalid Fadl Ahmed Jassim was put on Septmber 26th in solitary confinement simply because he asked one of the officers for a place to stand outside the wards after officers ordered them to leave. He was imprisoned in solitary confinement and took for investigation in the evening. The officer wrote a record contrary to the reality of the case that was rejected by Khalid who refused to sign it. So he was sentenced to stay in solitary confinement until September 28th, hands and legs cuffed, causing him severe pain at the level of his hands and his fingers and difficulty in moving the hands.

This is part of the violations that occur in prison Resin, where the International Centre for Justice and Human Rights has already alerted to the extent of the abuse and mistreatment that daily accured in this prison.

Khalid Fadhel Ahmed Jassim was born in 1970, was sentenced with "UAE 94" trial in the summer of 2013. He is a father of five sons and graduate in Business Administration. He held several management positions; most recently, he was the Director of Government Communication Department.

As a reminder, sits more than 70 political detainees in the prisons of the UAE and subjected to daily abuse and harassment and unjust sanctions. We have been informed that the prison authorities prevented many of the detainees from communicating with their families, and visits with the approach of Eid al-Adha they increase in abuse and revenge.

The International Centre for Justice and Human Rights condemns the violations against the detainee Khaled Ahmed Jassim and the rest of the detainees in the prisons of the UAE and calls on the UAE authorities to:

1- The unconditionally release of all prisoners of conscience

2- Prosecute torturers and all those involved in the torture and ill-treatment

3- Desist from the use of solitary confinement as an arbitrarily punishment which is a kind of torture in violation of the Constitution of the United Arab Emirates and the Convention against Torture, signed by the United Arab Emirates

4- Provide a human treatment of detainees by ensuring that all detainees communicate with their families

5- Ensure to Khalid Ahmed Jassim necessary medical care

The ICJHR also calls on the Special Rapporteur on Torture to urgently intervene with the UAE authorities and to demand the release of Khalid Jassim Mohamed Fadl and all prisoners of conscience and to investigate the practices of torture.

UAE:

After months of arrest and torture,

Osama Al-Najjar trial was postponed to October 14

Geneva on September 25, 2014

On September 23, the Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi looked in the case of human rights activist, Osama al-Najjar, who was accused of joining a secret cell, designing and running a web site and activity on social networks in order to disseminate "inaccurate, satirical and defaming ideas and information that are harmful to the structure of State institutions." They accused him also of contacting foreign organizations and providing inaccurate information about the UAE94 trial and the jails conditions. The hearing was postponed to October 14, 2014.

It is well known that the first appearance of Osama al-Najjar was in the hearing on September 23, after more than 6 months of his arrest. He was arrested on March 17, 2014 and tortured during the first days of his arrest. He also was not able to meet his lawyer or even obtain a copy of the case papers. Osama is prosecuted before the State Security Court of the Federal Supreme Court in Abu Dhabi, and it will be a final judgment that can't be appealed.

The state security controls the presence at the hearing. The presence of only two members of his family is allowed as well as the friendly media, which is usually part of authorities’ campaign against activists and prisoners of conscience.

The International Centre for Justice and Human Rights notes with concern the circumstances of the arrest and trial of activist Osama al-Najjar and calls on the UAE government to:

1-     Enable Osama al-Najjar and other detainees to have fair and independent trial

2-     Release of Osama al-Najjar unconditionally because his arrest was based on his activity on social networks and the exercise of the right of expression.

The ICJHR also calls on the international organizations and human rights defenders to support Osama al-Najjar, make pressure on the UAE government before October 14 for the release of Osama, and stop all prosecutions against him.
