Geneva, April 13, 2015

Authorities in Rezin Prison continue their repressive practices with the prisoners of conscience and opponents and in particular the "UAE 94» group. They inflict severe sanctions and deprive them of their most basic rights for trivial reasons.We have been informed at the International Center for Justice and Human Rights that prisoners are subjected to harassment and ill-treatment, including:

The Rezin prison administration to submit a paper for detainees in one of the wards containing conditions allowing who sign it to leave for Friday prayers a year after the ban. All detainees refused to sign on these conditions because it violated the law. These conditions consisted in the commitment not to talk among themselves or exchange greetings. These Terms were inhumane and cruel.

Some detainees in one of the wards had a severe poisoning caused by eating rotten meat, which led to the deterioration of their health, diarrhea and vomiting without allowing the prison administration to provide any medical treatment to them.

Most detainees complained about their worn and torn clothes. The prison administration hasn’t changed the clothes of detainees for a year and they didn’t allow them to enter their own clothes, forcing them to patch and tie worn parts.

The International Center for Justice and Human Rights condemns these heinous and inhuman practices and violating international treats about treatment of political prisoners and detainee.

We ask the UAE government to fulfil its international obligations in this regard, to respect for the basic rights of prisoners and to stop the policy of revenge and humiliation practiced against the prisoners of conscience.
