Geneva, 31 August 2015

At the occasion of the International Day of the Victims of Enforced Disappearances, the International Centre for Justice and Human Rights (ICJHR) recalls the situation of many persons in enforced disappearance at the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The ICJHR reiterates its concern about the human rights situation in UAE. It expresses its deep concern about the increase of the number of cases of enforced disappearances that include arrest, detention and abduction. The ICJHR have also reported many cases of torture, ill-treatment during detention in secret locations.

According to Article 2 of International Convention for the protection of all persons from enforced disappearance, “enforced disappearances” is:

“The arrest, detention, abduction or any other form of deprivation of liberty by agents of the State or by persons or groups of persons acting with the authorization, support or acquiescence of the State, followed by a refusal to acknowledge the deprivation of liberty or by concealment of the fate or whereabouts of the disappeared person, which place such a person outside the protection of the law”.

In UAE, enforced disappearance is a practice used by the security state apparatus as an oppressive strategy to spread terror and fear among dissidents, reformists, human rights activists and even lawyers representing other victims, which is considered as a grave human right violation and a breach of the international law. In UAE, at least, nearly 180 individuals were detained, including 39 Emirati are victims to enforced disappearances in addition to 14 Egyptian nationals, and 5 Libyans (see our updated list attached to this press release)*.

In fact, victims of enforced disappearance are in constant fear for their lives, isolated from the outside world and facing arbitrary detention without knowing the reasons. Having been removed from the protective precinct of the law and “disappeared” from society, they are in fact deprived of all their rights and are at the mercy of the security forces.

Besides, enforced disappearance entails many other consequences, such as physical as well as psychological torture. Families and relatives are also deprived of their basic rights and deeply affected as they ignore the whereabouts and fate of victims. They experience slow mental anguish, not knowing whether the victim is still alive and, if so, where he/she is being held, under what conditions, and in what state of health. They alternate between hope and despair, wondering and waiting for months, for news that may never come. In addition, they are well aware that they are too, threatened, that they may suffer the same fate themselves and that searching for the truth may expose them to even greater danger.

Hence, by practicing enforced disappearance, UAE authorities violate not only the Emirati constitution, but also the most fundamental human rights such as:

  1. Right to recognition as a person before the law
  2. Right to liberty and security of the person
  3. Right not to be subjected to torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment
  4. Right to counsel
  5. Right to inform his family
  6. Right to a fair trial and to judicial guarantees
  7. Right to an effective remedy, including reparation and compensation
  8. Right to know the truth regarding the circumstances and the reasons of a disappearance

Several cases were reported to the Working Group on enforced or involuntary disappearances (WGEID) which has already treated them and considered them as cases of enforced disappearances. The following cases were conveyed to the UAE Government:

Three sisters, Asma, Meriem and Al Yazyyah Khalifa Alsuwaidi, were released after spending three months in a secret detention for tweeting. They were victims of enforced disappearance on 15 of February 2015, after they were summoned to the police station in Abu Dhabi for no reason. During the whole detention period, their family was prevented the access to any information stating their whereabouts and the authorities refused to disclose the place or reason of their detention. They were released on 18 May after three months in secret detention for tweeting. It has been reported that their enforced disappearance might be linked to their on-line campaign for the release of their brother, Dr. Issa Al-Suwaidi, the Former Director of the Abu Dhabi Educational Zone and prisoner of conscience, who has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in the “UAE 94 trial”.

On 13th of February 2015, UAE authorities released Dr. Amer al-Shawa, an academic and Turkish businessman of Palestinian origin who remained for months in enforced disappearance. In fact, the police force of Dubai Airport arrested him on 2nd of October 2014, without a clear charge and he was detained for 5 months in an undisclosed location without informing his family about the reasons and the place of his detention. Following significant pressure, he was released in February 2015.

On 27th of June 2014, the Emiratis border police arrested two Qatari nationals, Yusuf Abdul Ghani Ali Al-Mulla and Hamid Ali Mohammed Ali Hamadi, while crossing the border to enter the UAE by car for tourism. For more than eight months, their families were unable to find out neither the reason of their arrest nor the place or condition of their detention. Their families were denied any contact with them.

Ahmed Mohammed Abdel-Rahman Al-Moula was arrested on 1st of May 2014 in Dubai. Al-Qusais security forces arrested him without clear reasons. He is now in Wathba Prison after spending months in enforced disappearance. His arrest took place before the eyes of his children.

The ICJHR has also reported other cases of enforced disappearances in UAE:

Dr. Naser Bin Ghaith, a prominent economist and academic who worked for the UAE Military as economic and legal consultant, disappeared following his arrest on 18th of August 2015 from his work in Abu Dhabi. Afterwards security service searched his house, and took him to an undisclosed location.

In August 2014, UAE authorities detained 10 Libyan nationals. Five of them are still detained in UAE. Two of them, Salim Elaradi and Kamal Al-Darat, were victims of enforced disappearance and their health recently deteriorated. Mohamed Al-aradi who was released on December 2014 reported scenes of horrific torture he suffered during his detention in secret.

The Security guards of Al-Qusais also arrested on 22nd of April, 2014 Hussein Badr Al Abdullah Al-Bahri after searching his house and terrorizing his children. He was detained in a secret prison where he was subjected to torture.

On 22nd of April 2014, Abdullah Al-Helou was arrested. Witnesses reported that his car was parked in front of Al-Qusais police station for several hours. His home was searched for hours before he was arrested without being charged then transferred to Abu Dhabi on 23 April where he was detained in a secret prison.

In February 2014, the UN Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers criticized in her last report the lack of judicial independence in the UAE, arguing that the executive branch exerts de facto control over the judiciary. She also expressed concern over reports of the use of secret detention facilities and the ill-treatment and torture of individuals held in incommunicado detention.

On 13th of January 2014, Emirati security forces hold Ahmad Massad Madawy, an Egyptian citizen resident in the UAE. He remained in enforced disappearance for 8 months then delivered to the Egyptian state security services.

All of these cases were communicated to the WGEID, which reviewed them during its last three sessions.

On 13th of September 2013, the Working Group requested an invitation to undertake a visit to the country. The Emirati government have not responded yet.

The ICJHR calls the Emirati authorities to:

  1. Ratify the International Convention for the protection of all persons from enforced disappearance and accept the competency of the Committee on Enforced Disappearances.
  2. Ratify the two Covenants, International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, social and cultural rights.
  3. Refrain from using enforced disappearance to punish dissidents, activists, reformists
  4. Investigate cases of enforced disappearances and let the families know the whereabouts of their relatives.
  5. Fulfill their international obligations regarding respect of human rights and freedom of expression
  6. Make sure that victims of enforced disappearance receive reparation and compensation
  7. Open independent and impartial investigations about torture and ill-treatment practiced in the cases of enforced disappearances and bring those responsible to trial.
