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.
