The UAE adopts a “national initiative for tolerance” that does not include prisoners of conscience or the cessation of its wars
The UAE government has announced the adoption of a “national initiative for tolerance” within the country’s false slogans on its gross violations of human rights internally and externally.
The alleged tolerance initiative did not include the release of dozens of arbitrary detainees detained in the UAE.
The initiative also did not include announcing the cessation of the UAE war on Yemen, which has been going on for more than four years, and its military intervention in Libya and many other countries to serve its ambitions.
The facts show a stark contrast between the reality of the UAE, which has a black human rights record, and its falsely claiming to adopt the slogan of tolerance.
The UAE is a country that pursues repression and violates human rights at a time that it falsely claims to adopt tolerance and is preparing to host a global summit for this purpose that will be held in Dubai in the middle of this month.
The slogan of tolerance was raised for the year 2019 in the UAE and its activities within the approach of the ruling regime in the country to publicize and cover up its crimes.
Repression and violations of human rights are a key feature in the Emirates, which arrests hundreds of human rights activists, dissidents and bloggers.
The Emirati regime exploits the launch of the tolerance slogan for a year for the purpose of false advertising.
The UAE allowed the establishment of a synagogue to promote its embrace of religions as part of public relations and try to improve reputation at a time when mosques are tightened and strictly controlled.
The facts show that tolerance in the human rights file is outside the thinking of the authorities in the Emirates, which practice repression and abuse of citizens and expatriates simply for expressing their opinion.
The UAE is also criminally intervening militarily in Yemen, Libya and other countries.
Dozens of human rights organizations have called on states and related organizations to boycott the World Tolerance Summit in Dubai.
In a joint statement, human rights organizations highlighted that the UAE practices arbitrary detention, enforced disappearance, torture and unfair trials.
There are scores of evidence of the UAE’s violations of human rights and arbitrary arrests, most notably the death of prisoners of conscience Alia Abdelnour neglect and torture months ago, and the authorities have intransigently tortured and harassed prisoner of conscience, human rights activist Ahmed Mansour, who is imprisoned for ten years because of his public views.
In its definition of the Emirates, Human Rights Watch International Human Rights Watch says on its website that Abu Dhabi arbitrarily detains, and in some cases, forcibly hides anyone who criticizes the authorities.
The organization highlights that the UAE plays a leadership role in the Saudi-led coalition that has carried out dozens of unlawful attacks in Yemen, some of which could be war crimes.
It notes the UAE’s involvement in mistreating detainees at home and abroad. Labor abuse continues in the UAE, and expatriate construction workers are seriously exploited. The law provides for the rights of domestic workers, but some of its provisions are weaker than those granted to other workers under the labor law.
Human Rights Watch also notes that the UAE has prevented activists and international human rights organizations from visiting it.
