Unique is the case of 'Judgment Creditor'; disgracefully the perpetrator is the 'Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates'

Unique is the case of ‘Judgment Creditor’; disgracefully the perpetrator is the ‘Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates’

“Support the Judgment Creditor to strengthen the Integrity of the Judiciary and people’s confidence in our Justice System”. The Judgment Creditor, who obtained four consecutive Judgments against ‘Willful Defaulters’ is very unique in all respects. [White Paper released by ‘Jabir P’, the ‘Judgment Creditor’]

The Judgment Creditor approached various ‘Institutions’ [a brief-list is given below] narrating his ‘traumatic experiences’ and a life of hardship in order to enforce the portfolio of Judgments from the Courts of Abu Dhabi, UAE. “If these ‘institutions’ are not worthy of their names and status, what is the relevance of their existence and how they could be classified worthy?”

The Judgment Creditor is a survivor victim of the ‘cruelest torture’, unethical and inhuman treatments of Abu Dhabi executive branch. In the process, he was betrayed by the ‘UAE Administration’ and the ‘Government of India’ alike at every stage. He lost all precious things in life including his dignity, health and wealth.

The adamant nature of the ‘Judgment Debtor’, the ‘Administration of UAE’, in not executing the Portfolios of Judgments of the Higher Courts of that very Country is cowardice, illegal and a threat and disgrace to the ‘Judicial System of the UAE’ and the entire law-abiding human community of the world. Appropriate action has to be initiated by the authorities concerned at this later stage to reach Justice to the Judgment Creditor.

The Case of the Judgment Creditor

The case of the Judgment Creditor, an Indian businessman and investor at Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., is a unique-one in all respects. It was a story of frightening, blatant violation of the ‘Law’ and the most shocking travesty of ‘Constitution’ of the United Arab Emirates to which the victim was exposed to. The investor was threatened of dire consequences if he did not agree to withdraw a civil suit that he brought against his Emirati business partner. The investor did not accede to the extortion threats of some corrupt local police officials of the Emirate. Due to the seriousness of the case, the Civil Court of Abu Dhabi was pleased to issue an Interim Decision and Order in favour of the investor.

In total negation of the judicial order, the accused in collusion with the local police attacked the Judgment Creditor at his office; robbed of cash and valuables to force him to withdraw the lawsuit. He sought intervention from the police. The police did come, but instead of helping him, he was shackled and literally dragged out of the office and on through the street in the presence of known friends and bystanders.

The Judgment Creditor had to undergo extremes of ‘cruel torture‘, inflicted permanent physical damage and humiliation from Abu Dhabi Police which no human being can withstand. He was confined to a detention center and brutally tortured and later taken to ‘Central Prison’. These painful incidents totally destroyed the life of the Judgment Creditor in all respects. The ‘Duty and Responsibility’ of the authority to protect a Judgment Creditor against the threats of violence was left unattended.

It took six months thereafter, for the person to have his first appearance in Court. He was framed a false case, alleging “Using force against Government employee and assault”. The Trial Court of Abu Dhabi found that the victim is innocent, the case was wholly false, baseless and that it was fabricated by the police for personal gain. The Apex Court of Abu Dhabi found that the victim is innocent; rather ‘a martyr. The Court, comprising three-judge panel, praised the properness of the behavior and courage of victim. It further reiterated the condemnation of prosecution. The Court ordered immediate release of the victim, ‘restoration’ of victim’s dignity and compensation for all his losses while pronouncing a ‘Landmark Judgment’.

Customarily, in UAE, the debtors will be jailed until they have paid their debt. But the debtor in this ‘Landmark Judgment’ is the State of UAE whose Ruler at the time was none other than the late Sheikh Zayed himself, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and absolute Ruler of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). To avoid honoring its moral obligations and assigned responsibilities, the UAE Administration served an arrogant, ‘Despotic Order of Deportation’ against the Judgment Creditor.

The victim was then re-victimized in a manner that was extremely ‘libelous’ – by ‘false statements as if he was punished for a crime’ and deported back to India. The ‘Judgment Creditor’ was entitled to execution of the Judgments and levies the Police Department of Abu Dhabi, worth hundreds of million US Dollars as compensation to restore his life, his dignity and his ‘business establishments’.

The illegal deportation of an established businessman from the country that caused a situation associated with great pain, loss of dignity, loss of his entire business institutions etc. Flouting the orders of a judicial body is totally destructive of the ‘Rules of Law’ and Norms internationally upheld for safeguarding ‘Human Rights’; defrauding the Judgment Creditor is a personal and vindictive action and thus the Executive of the State was committed the most heinous, bizarre, and unspeakable crime.

The ‘legal fight for justice’ took in very many proceedings before the Supreme Court of India and the High Court of Delhi. The subject matter of his grave complaints were adjudicated by the major Courts in India as well, which concurrently found the multiple forms of crime taking place under the UAE Administration such as fraud, forgery, extortion, torture and many other offences and subsequently secured two more Judgments from the High Court of Delhi in the year of 1997 and 2007 respectively. Despite the directive of the Delhi High Court, the Government of India has not discharged its duties as indicated in the judicial orders.

The anguish resultant from the deprivation of his establishments, assets and reputation earned exclusively through the untiring personal efforts of the Judgment Creditor for over 18 years of prime of his life, causes extreme mental depression which will virtually make his life only a vegetable existence. The UAE Government which owes huge debts to the Judgment Creditor by way of the non-execution of the Judgments of the Courts of Abu Dhabi in his favour, and for those unspeakable crimes committed against him, is also solely and exclusively responsible for the closure of “his various ‘business establishments’ in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates”.

The victim, the Judgment Creditor, has one demand: The Government of India should consider taking the necessary steps to execute the Judgments passed by the higher Courts of Abu Dhabi through all means, including the International Court of Justice (ICJ), on behalf of the Judgment Creditor and punish the guilty that was caused ‘Multi-billion Dollars’ worth of damage to the Judgment Creditor in order to strengthening the “Integrity of the Judiciary and people’s confidence in our ‘Justice System”.

The Judgment Creditor approached various ‘Institutions’ including the Government of India, the Higher Judiciary, the NHRC, respectable Ministers, Parliamentarians and even the ‘United Nations’ [a brief list is given below] for redressal narrating his traumatic experiences and a life of hardship of the Judgment Creditor, in order to enforce the portfolio of Judgments which he could secure from the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi on the basis of genuine facts and convincing evidences produced there in.

“If these ‘institutions’ are not worthy of their names and status, what is the relevance of their existence and how they could be classified worthy?”

The worst cheating scandal of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE)

The worst cheating scandal of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
August 01, 2014 Reparation Law News, New Delhi

The Judgment Debtor, the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Former UAE President and Ruler of Abu Dhabi Emirate

[The title, the ‘judgment debtor’ is reserved to describe the person who owes the judgment creditor the amount (damages) stated in the criminal judgments and has not paid the debt. In common law in the UAE, the debtors will be jailed until they have paid their debt.]

The ‘Judgment Creditor’ was entitled to execution of the Judgments and levies the Police Department of Abu Dhabi, worth hundreds of million US Dollars as compensation to restore his life, his dignity and his business establishments.

The debtor in the ‘UAE Court Judgments’, is the State of UAE whose Ruler at the time was none other than the late Sheikh Zayed himself, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and absolute Ruler of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It may be recalled that the Emir was blamed of having been instrumental in defrauding or cheating the Judgment Creditor to avoid honoring his moral obligations and assigned responsibilities.

The Judgment Creditor is an Indian businessman and investor, who was deprived of his valuable rights guaranteed by FOUR successive Judgments (1 Civil & 3 Criminal Court Judgments) from the Legal Courts of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE); and TWO consecutive Judgments from the High Court of Delhi, after approaching the Supreme Court of India in October, 1996.

The businessman was victimized by the officials of Abu Dhabi, UAE, and the subject matter of his grave complaints were adjudicated by the Courts in Abu Dhabi and Delhi which concurrently found the multiple forms of crime taking place under the wings of the ‘Ministry of Interior United Arab Emirates (UAE)’, such as fraud, forgery, extortion, torture and many other offences.

Both the Courts in Abu Dhabi, the Court of First Instance and the Apex Court were fully satisfied with the highest standard of proof, beyond any doubt that the Police was guilty. The Court observed that all the pieces of evidence indicated the proper behavior of the victim and held that he is innocent; rather ‘a martyr’. The Apex Court comprised of three Judges passed a ‘Landmark Judgment’ in the history of UAE.

The head of the State have a ‘constitutional duty’ to faithfully execute the judicial orders of the country. Any civilized Government is bound to implement the verdict of the judiciary, as that is the basic requirement of the Rule of Law. ‘Laws governing the international community’ do require compliance by the Executive Government, in full measure, with the verdict of the judiciary. This requirement of law was breached by the UAE Government. Instead of enforcing the judgments, the Judgment Creditor was expelled from the country by an arbitrary administrative action, resulting in total destruction of his life, his businesses and his profession.

The administrative action of the UAE was totally illegal and arbitrary, as the Executive cannot override or overrule a decision of the very Courts of the country that ruled reparation to a victim; defrauding the judgment creditor is a personal and vindictive action; it is unofficial and illegal. The UAE Government owes huge debts to the creditor, solely and exclusively responsible for the closure of “his various ‘business establishments’ in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates”.

The ‘legal fight for justice’ took in very many proceedings before the Supreme Court of India and the High Court of Delhi. Despite the directive of the Delhi High Court, the Government of India has not discharged its duties as indicated in the judicial order.

The enforcement of UAE judgment that was delayed and denied for a long period of nearly two decades has to be satisfied without any further delay so that the ‘Judgment Debtor(s)’ could avoid unpleasant consequences that will follow. The creditor holds full power of the Foreign Courts as well as the Domestic Courts to support his claim and to take debtor’s property (lien) in the UAE, where the judgment is recorded, if the obligation is not discharged.

The recent decision of the London High Court on ‘Harb v HRH Prince Abdul Aziz Bin Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz, Saudi Arabia has marked a turning point in the doctrine of ‘State Immunity’ of Foreign States. The landmark decision of Royal Courts of Justice, reaffirm the Rights of Judgment Creditor to pursue his enforcement efforts against the UAE debtors!

The lawyers for Prince Abdul Aziz, the king’s son, argued he had “state immunity” and the court had no jurisdiction to try the claim of Mrs Harb, who was the “secret” Christian wife of the late King of Saudi Arabia. But the learned Judge of the London High Court, Mrs Justice Rose threw out the prince’s argument, opening the way for a full hearing of the case which risks embarrassing the House of Saud.

Some important points of the judicial decision includes (a) the ‘personal immunity ceases when a head of state is no longer, for whatever reason, in office’ ; (b) the ‘head of a state enjoy immunity only in respect of their official acts whilst in office’ ; (c) a ‘successor regime is obliged to compensate the victim of state wrongs’. The Court also relied on Article 39 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations 1961. Under this provision, immunity ratione personae, personal immunity, for an ambassador lasts only while he or she is in office. [‘London High Court on ‘Harb v HRH Prince Abdul Aziz Bin Fahd Bin Abdul Aziz, Rose J, [2014] EWHC 1807 (Ch),09/06/2014′].

The Government of India is duty bound to safeguard the interests of its citizen who was victimized by Abu Dhabi, UAE, the receiving state. But even after the lapse of nearly two decades, the Government of India has totally failed to help, implement judicial orders of the UAE and of Delhi High Court. These actions and omissions on the part of the Government is contrary to the ‘Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR) 1963’ particularly Article 5, enforced from 19-3-1967. A recent judgment of the Supreme Court which casts liability on a Government for the delay in the disposal of the complaints of a citizen, even when the delay is at the instance of a Legal authority or Tribunal.

Endnotes:

We intend to give wide coverage to the issue in public interest; to protect innocent people, of being exposed to the kinds of brutal, inhuman tortures (mental, physical and economic) and to safeguard the interests of UAE Judgment Creditors in future.

The Wanton Deployment of Secret Mercenary Armies

The Wanton Deployment of Secret Mercenary Armies

The Wanton Deployment of Secret Mercenary Armies

The Wanton Deployment of Secret Mercenary Armies
Jabir P  July 10, 2014  Reparation Law News Service,  New Delhi

In Afghanistan and Iraq, the U.S.-led private security contractors have been linked to anti coalition activities, murder, bribery, and kidnapping. This pattern has now been actively introduced into already volatile regions, like East Ukraine and the Middle Eastern nations.

Russia is calling on the United States to take steps to curb involvement of foreign mercenaries in the ongoing military operation in Ukraine. Engaging mercenaries is totally in violation of the rules and regulations contained in the UN Convention of the Recruitment, Use, Financing and Training of Mercenaries.

U.S. mercenaries, formerly known as Blackwater, are reportedly taking part in Ukraine’s military operations against the people fighting for their rights in south-eastern regions of Ukraine.

The U.S. State Department officials say the allegations that there are ‘U.S mercenaries’ operating in Ukraine are false.”

Blackwater is a private military contracting firm founded by former Navy SEAL Erik Prince in 1997. Blackwater mercenaries were made infamous during the invasion of Iraq for their frequent and unprovoked killings of dozens of innocent civilians. It includes the massacre of 17 civilians in Iraq by Blackwater employees, the FBI found. “I put myself and my company at the C.I.A.’s disposal for some very risky missions” says Erik Prince, the former CEO of Blackwater Worldwide.

Late last year, Prince published a book, Civilian Warriors. ‘The Inside Story of Blackwater and the Unsung Heroes of the War on Terror’. Mr. Prince writes that his company has been demonized around the world, because of the secrecy requirements of Blackwater’s contracts with the Pentagon, the State Department, and the CIA, Prince was unable to speak out; he is bound under the terms of his non-disclosure agreement with the U.S. agencies’.

Erik Prince sold his Corporation’s US-based 7,000-acre training facility in Moyock, North Carolina in 2010 to a group of investors close to his family, which is now known as ‘Academi’. Prince retained all rights to the Blackwater name as well as the control of numerous companies that once operated under the umbrella of Blackwater.

Erik Prince is now resettled in Abu Dhabi, the capital of United Arab Emirates with his so-called mercenary army grouped under Reflex Responses, known as R2, alongside the UAE Armed Force, Zayed Military City of Abu Dhabi.

Last year, the Colombia’s defense ministry was alarmed about an exodus of top soldiers to the UAE to join a highly paid American-led mercenary force organized by Erik Prince, for his security company Blackwater (rebranded “Xe”). Prince’s mercenary forces in the UAE, is made up largely of Colombian soldiers, who have acquired this capability and skill through training they have received from the Israeli, US and British experts.

Erik Prince was hired by Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, to deliver an 800-strong first test battalion for the UAE. The $529m initial deal between Mr Prince and the Crown Prince is slated to run through May 2015. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who is the immediate ruler of the United Arab Emirates.

While the actual assignment given to Mr. Prince, the founder of a controversial security company Blackwater was to silence the pro-democratic activists inside and outside the country, the UAE took a stand that they were brought only to impart training for a Special Security Group.

UAE is a federation of seven Emirates situated on the Arabian Peninsula, is attributed to authoritarian regime and most powerful among them being Emirate of Abu Dhabi, holding 9% of the world’s oil reserves and 5% of the world’s gas reserves. Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The late Sheikh Zayed, installed in August 1966 as head of the oil-rich Abu Dhabi, through a British-led coup against his brother, Sheikh Shakhbut (Ruled:1928-66). Zayed was in power until his death in Nov. 2, 2004. Sheikh Khalifa, the eldest son of Sheikh Zayed, succeeded him to the leadership of Abu Dhabi and UAE.

The ruling regime of UAE is notorious for its Human Rights records. It restricts people’s freedom and controls them by arbitrary arrests, torture, enforced disappearances and killings. The regime is continued to suppress the press by imposing tough laws in the Emirates, set up massive funds, men and machinery to crush down all democratic aspirations across the Arab world. This is done out of their fear that the struggles for democracy may, in turn, take over their regime as well. Hundreds of innocents are being killed in the process in neighbouring countries such as Bahrain and Egypt.

According to ‘Global Research Centre’ the force is aimed at suppressing the people’s struggles in the Gulf countries, with interventions similar to those in Bahrain. It was reported that, once the efficiency of the battalion has been tested, Abu Dhabi will fund worth billions of dollars for a whole brigade of several thousand mercenaries. Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed is a trusted Pentagon associate. He also supports military intervention directed against Iran. The crown prince and his friend Erick Prince, however, are the executors of the project, which was decided in Washington. Its purpose was revealed in documents quoted by the New York Times.

Mercenaries are mostly former military personnel or ex-policemen who kill people just for money. By taking recourse to the formation of a brutal private mercenary army, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi has demonstrated his intention to resist civil uprisings with violent repression. Blackwater has been involved since the first days of the occupation in Iraq and had 30 plus casualties including in a high-profile incident in Fallujah. By organizing a private hard-core mercenary army to crush their own people, UAE has violated all norms of Human Rights and undermined the international humanitarian law and the Geneva Conventions.

The 1989 U.N. Convention represents an endeavour by the international community to outlaw mercenarism in all its manifestations and consists of 21 articles. According to Article 5 of the Convention, States Parties shall not recruit, use, finance or train mercenaries for the purpose of opposing the legitimate exercise of the inalienable right of peoples to self-determination, as recognized by international law, and shall take, in conformity with international law, the appropriate measures to prevent the recruitment, use, financing or training of mercenaries for that purpose. (Ref.2)

Threats posed by Mercenaries

“Mercenaries pose a threat not only to security, but also to human rights and potentially to the right of peoples to self-determination,” said Faiza Patel, who chaired the study. The study said mercenaries were used in the past to fight in wars between countries but recently the Governments had used mercenaries against their own populations. It said private military and security companies receive between $20 billion and $100 billion per year. (Ref.3)

Responding to complaints and questionnaire sent by Ms. Faiza Patel, Chair-Rapporteur of the U.N. Working Group, who has been studying the issues of private military and security companies, in regards with the laws regulating the activities of recruits or engaging mercenaries in the country, the UAE replied in a dishonest and fraudulent manner that no mercenary group is working in the UAE as a means of violating human rights. The foreign security companies operating in the UAE are under the supervision of the UAE Ministry of Interior, further that their scope of work is limited to “preventive security protection’. License granted to these security companies do not grant them powers of judicial control and their personnel are prohibited from acquiring or carrying any fire arms in accordance to Article 10, 12 and 16 of Federal Decree 37 of year 2006 concerning private companies and their executive regulations”. (Ref.4)

“Blackwater is the modern version of mercenaries that have been used by corrupt governments and regimes throughout history,” American investigative journalist Alex Jones said during an interview with Press TV’s US Desk. According to Jones, Blackwater, which represents the “21st century death squad,” carries out any mission it is paid to do.

The former employees of Blackwater said that in recruiting the Colombians and others from halfway around the world, subordinates were following his strict rule: hire no Muslims. Muslim soldiers, Mr. Prince warned, could not be counted on to kill fellow Muslims. For him, there is no legal accountability and no internationally accepted criteria as they will operate outside any known jurisdictions and most probably in stealth. Prince’s latest venture in the UAE has the hallmarks of government-sponsored military anarchy.

The executed contract between the Blackwater, American-led mercenaries and the UAE authority is available below for reference. “Copy of Mercenary Contract between the GHQ Armed Forces of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Blackwater, now called Xe Services [Reflex Responses Management Consultancy or R2 ] of Abu Dhabi for June 2010 to May 2015” (The contract is renewable in 2015) (Ref.5)

As against these crude facts and verifiable truth, the denial of the UAE about presence of any mercenary group reflects and reinforces its Human Rights Violations, cruelties and the tendency of cheating its own people, renowned experts, academic institutions and the UN commissions as a whole. This is an alarming and disgraceful situation to every one!

The Luanda Draft Convention again stressed the responsibility of individual states to prevent their nationals from taking part in mercenary activities, as well as those individual persons defined as mercenaries. State responsibility, as such, is conveyed in Article 319 that makes government officials who undertake to employ, aid, or recruit mercenaries liable for criminal prosecution. Thus, failure by a State to carry out the prosecution of officials who had undertaken such activities would, argues Taulbee, ‘create international responsibility on the part of the offending State’. (Ref.6)

Appendage

“Live by the Sword, Die by the Sword’ is an old saying. It means those who take the sword, shall perish by the sword. Read below what others say about:
“Prince could one day turn on his employers, shoot up their palaces, and stand astride their glittering towers as lord of all he surveys. And a South African mercenary with a pencil moustache could run the Emirati justice ministry, conjuring up memories of a regime we assumed was long dead. Stranger things have happened. One hopes, for the al-Nayhan’s sake, they have a good contract in place, and a new New Model Army to counter their New Model Army. Erik Prince might turn out to be their most dangerous high-end acquisition”. DM

UAE is ranked the world’s fifteenth biggest military spender

UAE’s military occupation in Bahrain to help suppress a popular revolt

UAE is ranked the world’s fifteenth biggest military spender
April 14, 2014 Press Release, Stockholm, Sweden

UAE is ranked to fifteenth place with $19 billion in the list of SIPRI Military Expenditure Database 2014.

Middle Eastern nations increased their military expenditure by billions of dollars last year, Saudi Arabia, the largest spender in the region, increased spending by 14 per cent to a total of $67.0 billion in 2013. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is ranked to fifteenth place with $19 billion. The comprehensive annual update of the SIPRI Military Expenditure Database is accessible from today at www.sipri.org.

According to the SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute) Military Expenditure Database, the gobal military expenditure was $1747 billion in 2013, a fall of 1.9 per cent in real terms since 2012, according to figures released today by Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). The database describes the global, regional and national trends in military expenditure that are revealed by the new data.

The fall in the global total comes from decreases in Western countries, led by the United States, and despite increases in all other regions. In fact, military spending in the rest of the world excluding the USA increased by 1.8 per cent.

The next three highest spenders—China, Russia and Saudi Arabia—all made substantial increases, with Saudi Arabia leapfrogging the United Kingdom, Japan and France to become the world’s fourth largest military spender. China, Russia and Saudi Arabia are among the 23 countries around the world that have more than doubled their military expenditure since 2004.

The fall in US spending in 2013, by 7.8 per cent, is the result of the end of the war in Iraq, the beginning of the drawdown from Afghanistan, and the effects of automatic budget cuts passed by the US Congress in 2011. Meanwhile, austerity policies continued to determine trends in Western and Central Europe and in other Western countries.

‘The increase in military spending in emerging and developing countries continues unabated,’ said Dr Sam Perlo-Freeman, Director of SIPRI’s Military Expenditure Programme. ‘While in some cases it is the natural result of economic growth or a response to genuine security needs, in other cases it represents a squandering of natural resource revenues, the dominance of autocratic regimes, or emerging regional arms races.’

Saudi Arabia and Iraq dominate increase in the Middle East

Military spending in the Middle East increased by 4.0 per cent in 2013, reaching an estimated $150 billion. Saudi Arabia’s spending increased by 14 per cent, to reach $67 billion, possibly due to tensions with Iran but also the desire to maintain strong and loyal security forces to insure against potential ‘Arab Spring’ type protests.

Maintaining regime survival in the face of internal opposition is also the likely motive for Bahrain’s 26 per cent increase. However, the largest regional increase was by Iraq (27 per cent), as it continued the rebuilding of its armed forces.

‘Military spending data for Iran, Qatar, Syria and the United Arab Emirates are not available for 2013, which means that the estimated regional total is highly uncertain. This reflects the general opacity of military spending in the region, and even where data is available it may not cover all military spending,’ said Dr Perlo-Freeman.

Resources fuelling arms acquisitions in Africa

Military spending in Africa increased by 8.3 per cent in 2013, reaching an estimated $44.9 billion. Over two-thirds of the African countries for which data is available increased military spending in 2013. Algeria became the first country in Africa with military spending over $10 billion, an increase of 8.8 per cent since 2012, and of 176 per cent since 2004. Meanwhile, Angola increased its spending by 36 per cent in 2013, to overtake South Africa as the largest military spender in sub-Saharan Africa, and the second highest on the continent. High oil revenues appear to be a factor driving both Algeria’s and Angola’s military spending increases.

UN expert calls for probe of ‘torture’ in UAE prisons

Gabriela-Knaul-the-UN-Special-RapporteurUN expert calls for probe of ‘torture’ in UAE prisons
February 5, 2014 By Lynne al-Nahhas

Abu Dhabi (AFP) – A UN expert on Wednesday urged an independent probe into allegations of torture in United Arab Emirates prisons, which she was not allowed to visit during a fact-finding mission.

Gabriela Knaul, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges and Lawyers, also criticised “violations” and a “lack of transparency” in court proceedings in the Gulf country, where dozens of Islamists have been rounded up.

Knaul called for independence for the UAE judiciary, which she said “remains under the de facto control of the executive branch of government.”

The UAE foreign ministry welcomed her visit, pledging to “study the remarks and recommendations” she made.

But it complained that some of Knaul’s comments “were based on information that had no known sources and was consistent with a politically motivated campaign by a group seeking to distort the UAE’s reputation.”

In her preliminary report on a nine-day visit, Knaul urged the UAE to “establish an independent committee to investigate all allegations of torture and ill-treatment in detention.”

She told a press conference she had received “credible information and evidence” that detainees are arrested without warrant, blindfolded, taken to unknown places and held incommunicado, sometimes for months.

She said she also had evidence of detainees being “tortured and/or subjected to ill-treatment” including by being put in “electric chairs.”

She said she was not allowed to visit prisons or meet with certain detainees, adding that “on one occasion, I was followed.”

The UAE has not seen any of the widespread protests that have swept other Arab states since 2011. However, authorities have cracked down hard on dissent and calls for democratic reform, drawing criticism from human rights groups.

The top UAE security court last month jailed a group of 30 Emiratis and Egyptians convicted of forming a Muslim Brotherhood cell for terms ranging from three months to five years.

The 10 UAE citizens in the group were among 69 nationals jailed in July for up to 15 years on separate charges of plotting to overthrow the government.

Evidence sometimes ‘fabricated’

In her report, Knaul said supreme court rulings must be subject to appeal, criticising “an apparent lack of transparency during both the investigation phase and court proceedings.”

She spoke of claims that “evidence is sometimes manipulated and fabricated by the police or other security agencies and the prosecution.”

“The lack of transparency is compounded when the court hearings are not public,” she added.

Only selected relatives of the defendants, in addition to local journalists and representatives of human rights groups were allowed to attend the Islamists’ trial.

Knaul also accused the UAE of “disturbing” treatment of women “who dare to file a complaint for sexual assault.”

In July, a Norwegian woman was released following a pardon by the Dubai ruler. Although she had filed a rape report with police, the woman found herself tried and jailed for extramarital sex, perjury and consuming alcohol without a licence.

The UAE, which is home to millions of expatriates, must also “redouble efforts to allow access to justice, in particular to vulnerable groups, such as migrant and domestic workers,” she said.

It should provide “quality interpretation and translation for non-Arabic speakers at all stages of legal proceedings.”

In 2010, the appeal of 17 Indian expatriates sentenced to death after being convicted of killing a Pakistani was repeatedly delayed for lack of an interpreter, drawing strong criticism from Indian human rights groups.

The court later commuted the death sentences to two years in prison followed by deportation.

Reputation! Reputation! Reputation! “Truth and Justice are being nakedly sacrificed for UAE’s Reputation”

Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahayan, president of the United Arab EmiratesReputation! Reputation! Reputation! “Truth and Justice are being nakedly sacrificed for UAE’s Reputation”
Press release: January 10, 2014

Introductory Note

The terrifying real-life experience of the petitioner, an Indian national, will speak about the cruelties of Abu Dhabi, much louder than words.

The Government of India has never risen to occasions against the brutality and humiliation inflicted upon an Indian citizen in UAE despite multiple judgments from that country in his favour.

Under international law, the state is responsible for all actions or omissions of its officials and organs. This is the function of the basic rules of international law concerning the responsibility of States for their internationally wrongful acts and the legal consequences which flow therefrom.

“We therefore specifically demand that all the progressive and democratic governments must adopt a ‘victim-centered approach’ in their criminal justice process and thereby strengthening the Integrity of the Judiciary and people’s confidence in our Justice System”.

‘Please find the following brief from behind the scenes’ and that’s how the ruling regime of Abu Dhabi and United Arab Emirates (UAE) has lost its ‘Reputation’! (‘Reputation is an idle and most false imposition; oft got without merit, and lost without deserving’ ― William Shakespeare, Othello)

“Truth and Justice are being nakedly sacrificed for UAE’s Reputation”:

(Scene One) Primarily in a civil case, it was for a defeated landlord

When a dispute arose with a local landlord, the petitioner as on behalf of his contracting firm, instituted a civil suit in Abu Dhabi Court for settling the issue. The conspiracy on the part of landlord, to avoid paying debts was one of the important and thrusting points in the civil suit. An interim order was granted by Abu Dhabi Court of Justice in favour of the petitioner.

The defeated landlord turned against the petitioner and took recourse to all illegal and unethical means to regain his ‘Reputation’. The landlord was claiming to be a close associate of the ‘Crown Prince’ of Abu Dhabi. He abused the acquaintance and intimacy with the office of ‘Crown Prince’ for making wrongful gain at the expense of the petitioner. Certain corrupt police officials colluded with him. Making a forcible entry into the petitioner’s place, the petitioner was threatened to withdraw the Civil Suit.

The petitioner was brutally tortured and literally dragged out of his office along the street in the presence of known friends and bystanders. He was confined to a detention center where he was again tortured in a horrifying manner and rushed the unconscious victim to hospital-emergency. He was subjected to the greatest ordeals by being taken from hospital to the underground lock-up and illegally kept incommunicado in solitary confinement. He was confined to secret detention centers in different days with all sorts of malpractices resulting in injury, bodily damage and injury to his reputation.

The petitioner was threatened with dire consequences if he did not agree to withdraw the civil suit filed against the landlord. But he did not accede to their extortion threats. The dreadful agony and blackmailing was intensified thereupon; he had to undergo extremes of cruel torture and humiliation from Abu Dhabi Police which no human being can withstand. However, he was spared from death. After four months of arrest, a false case was registered against him, alleging “Using force against Government employee and assault”. It took six months thereafter, for the petitioner to have his first appearance in Court.

(Scene Two) In the Court of First Instance, it was for the Prosecutor in pursuit of his notoriety and fame;

The Court listened to the evidences of eye-witnesses from different Nationalities. “The witnesses did not care the threat of State Police and Public Prosecution, and they dared to explain the facts”. Mr. Saleem Raza, a Pakistani who said a policeman was holding an iron bar of one meter length in his hand, threatening anyone who came near the office premises of the accused and was shouting “Indian, Pakistani and Bengalis all are thieves and procurers”.

Mr. Zulfiqar Ali who gave similar statement, moreover he added-that the appellee have neither resisted the police nor they have beaten anyone from the patrolling squad and that the appellee are of good nature “I am a Pakistani and they are Indian, no relations are between us, and my testimony is based on truth only. Further the Court listened to the statement of the 3rd witness Mr. Shirban Kalobar from Iran, whose testimony came similar to the declaration of the first two witnesses.

The innocence of the petitioner had been ultimately upheld by the Hon’ble Judge of Abu Dhabi Legal Court of First Instance. The Court found that, the Prosecutor was guilty of proceeding against the petitioner. The Court acquitted the petitioner of all the charges leveled against him and directed the authorities to prosecute the Policeman involved and also the Landlord –for being guilty of deception.

At this stage, the Prosecutor got offended, and he took up the case further, to regain his ‘false prestige’. The office of the Public Prosecutor, Abu Dhabi filed an appeal against the decree of the legal court of the first instance.

(Scene Three) By losing in the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi, it’s ultimately linked with the Ministry of Interior, United Arab Emirates (UAE) for its grossly inflated ‘Reputation’

The case finally came up before the Apex Court, comprising the three-judge panel. The petitioner was granted bail on the filing of the appeal. However, despite the bail and sureties he was not released from the prison. During the hearing, the Police officer dropped his claim from his complaint with a declaration attested by the Notary Public. Finally, the Landlord and the Prosecutor followed the suit and told that they have absolutely no case against the accused.

The eminent Jurists Panel of Apex Court cross-examined all aspects of the case and found that the accused was innocent; rather ‘a martyr’.

“The Court observed that all the pieces of evidence indicated the properness of the behavior of victim, the accused. The Court having been convinced about the innocence of the victim quoted the ‘Islamic Law’ that should be practiced by everyone following the Islam Religion. The case was wholly false, baseless and that it was fabricated by the police for personal gain. The appellate review highlighted the culpability of the policeman and emphasized the notoriety of his actions and violations of Human Rights. “It further reiterated the condemnation of prosecutor”. The Court, therefore, ordered restoration of victim’s dignity and respect and to compensate for all his losses while pronouncing a ‘Landmark Judgment’ .

In spite of all that, the UAE Administration, in a supremely foolish and cowardly manner disagreed to execute the orders of the highest Judiciary of that land, as they thought it would affect the UAE’s Reputation. To overcome this uncomfortable situation and to uphold their grossly inflated ‘Reputation’, the Administration deliberately chose to give a fatal blow to the ‘Judgment Creditor’, who won the lawsuit, with a continued incarceration instead of enforcing the Judicial rulings, the immediate release of the victim and to restore the dignity and respect of the victim.

(Scene Four) New sequence of fatal events by the UAE Administration, the ‘Judgment Debtor’

It was only after three months a new sequence of fatal events unfolded by the UAE Administration, who is in fact the ‘debtor’ in the case against which an unsatisfied court order was awarded. The UAE Administration treated the ‘Judgment Creditor’ as an offender instead, and passed yet another illegal and unconstitutional order of deportation, quoting the very same fabricated charge of “Using force against Government employee and assault” (the charge had been struck down earlier by the Lower Court and the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi by concurring verdicts; on the contrary, it was proved that both the plaintiff and police personals were the aggressors who cruelly assaulted the victim without any provocation) and deported the petitioner to India as if he was punished for a crime’.

Thus, in this case, the ‘Truth and Justice have nakedly been sacrificed for UAE’s Reputation’. The agony of petitioner continues unabated.

EndNote

As per the Law prevailing in the UAE and its high values reflected by the periodic propaganda through the media, the Executive of the State was duty bound to adhere to the orders of the Judiciary of the land. It is respectfully submitted that flouting the orders of a judicial body is totally destructive of the Rules of Law and norms internationally upheld for safeguarding Human Rights.

MOI UAE Celebrates International Human Rights Day

moi-uae_intl_day_human_rightsMinistry of Interior UAE Celebrates International Human Rights Day
December 11, 2013

Abu Dhabi: The Ministry of Interior, represented by the Human Rights  -

Photograph Security Media, Ministry of Interior and the Abu Dhabi Police

Department, organized a seminar to commemorate International Human Rights Day. The event, which is celebrated annually on December 10th, was held at the Ministry of Interior’s auditorium. This year’s event took place under the slogan “20 Years of Working for your Rights” and marked the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Brigadier Ahmed Mohammed Nehkairah, Head of Human Rights Department at the Ministry of Interior attended the seminar along with Mahir Al Obad, Assistant Undersecretary for Inspection Affairs at the Ministry of Labor; Brigadier General Dr. Abdullah bin Sahoo Al Suwaidi, Director General of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Sharjah; Brigadier Mohammed Khalifa Al Marar, Director General of Undersecretary Diwan at the Ministry of Interior; and a number of other officers from the Ministry of Interior.

In his speech, Brigadier Nehkairah said that the Ministry of Interior is one of the ministries responsible for protecting Human Rights. He said that the ministry is committed to keep up with national and international developments in human rights, and is determined to increase the awareness of human rights within the ministry: “The Ministry of Interior is keen to boosting collaboration with all concerned bodies and authorities. This strategy aims toimplement the best methods and practices that can improve the UAE’s position in both regional and international spheres.

He also added that the ministry is deeply concerned with institutional structures that take care of and maintain human rights and is concerned with protecting victims against any infringements that they might be subjected to. To attain this goal, the ministry established the Human Rights Department and other establishments. The ministry has also inaugurated the Human Rights Committee and the National Committee to Combat Human Trafficking, in addition to giving extra care to all members of society, especially women, children, people with special needs, the elderly, and crime victims.

Brigadier Nehkairah concluded his speech by thanking the attendees for the efforts they made to bring it success. He also wished them luck and success.

For his part, Brigadier General Dr. Abdullah bin Sahoo Al Suwaidi, Director General of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Sharjah, elaborated in his essay on the efforts made to protect house maids in the UAE. He pointed out that the UAE is a role model in the field of human rights, particularly among the labor force. He explained how the country’s higher leadership has offered the labor force all of its attention by issuing legislations and programs that grant workers a respectable life. This strategy was reflected in the UAE 2021 Vision which aims to establish a stable job market that is based on a productive work force that has the ability to strengthen the economy.

He added that the UAE is toiling at various levels to protect the rights and freedoms of individuals, and to improve their living conditions; issues that come at the top of the federal government’s priorities. “The country’s leadership did not only concentrate on the legislative aspect; it has joined efforts with various government and private institutions to achieve this goal, out of the abiding faith in the need to work according to a unified system to protect human rights and support the labor force.

He stated that domestic service workers are subject to direct supervision by the Ministry of Interior, and that the ministry has taken all the necessary measures to improve their conditions. This is in line with the ministry’s objectives of achieving equality, preserving human rights, and protecting domestic service workers in the UAE. To attain these objectives, the ministry has issued a number of procedures to safeguard and aid the laborers. The procedures include, but are not limited to, imposing work contracts, holding specialized training programs, and establishing institutions that educate, raise awareness, and settle disputes.

Brigadier General Abdullah bin Sahoo Al Suwaidi said that the government is making efforts to implement a law designed specifically for domestic workers. The law will mark a milestone in the government’s journey in improving the laws and regulations that aim to create security, stability, and a respectable life for all the people that live in this country.

The bill contains a number of articles that protect the rights of domestic workers. These include articles that will help the organization of labor agencies and define their responsibilities, regulate work conditions and time off. The articles specify what the employers’ responsibilities are and impose inspections on all domestic service agencies, making sure that employers meet certain requirements regarding working conditions and accommodation. The articles also address compensation laws and other rights the workers are entitled to through their contracts.

The new law will complement the government’s procedures in protecting domestic service workers, eliminating bad practices that the workers are sometimes subjected to, and ensures the rights of these workers in their different categories.  Along with this new law, the Emirati judicial system was able to create an exemplary department that specializes in such labor cases. The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) took an unprecedented step and established a judicial section at various judiciary levels that specializes in domestic service-related issues. These courts work within the framework of the UAE’s judicial system, and is meant to apply the principles of specialized laws, ensuring and providing more protection for these workers. ADJD also decided on establishing a specialized committee that will settle domestic service-related disputes. The committees will be responsible for reconciliation and will work under the Alternative Disputes Resolution (ADR) Section at the department.

Mahir Al Obad, Assistant Undersecretary for Inspection Affairs at the Ministry of Labor, presented an essay on human rights in relation to job market, highlighting the Ministry of Labor’s mission to regulate the job market. He also explained that the ministry is committed to providing basic rights for laborers because the UAE’s leadership believes that workers deserve to have their rights protected. Based on this vision, the government issued Federal Law NO. (8) Of 1980 regulating work conditions. The government issued amendments and executive orders with a view to establish a legal framework that will protect workers. He pointed out that the Emirati legislator granted women and juveniles their rights, and placed these regulations within the framework of law to ensure their protection by issuing standards and principles defined in Federal Law NO. (8) Of 1980. This law preserves the worker’s rights. Through this law, the Emirati legislator defined the conditions of hiring workers, and drafted the laws that prevent juveniles under the age of 15 from working. This law also grants women their rights and prevents them from being hired for dangerous work. It also grants women their maternity leave and designated breastfeeding hours.

Mr. Al Obad emphasized the need to regulate the job market to ensure foreign workers are granted their rights, and emphasized the fact that workers have freedom of choice and are working in a country that has a system of transparency. This was accomplished by cooperating with their home countriesin order to deliver awareness programs that are offered when they leave their countries, and are offered upon arrival in the UAE.

The regulations also limit labor agencies’ activities, which ultimately helps prevent cases of human trafficking. In addition to that, various mechanisms and procedures were developed to issue work permits, eliminating black market visas and makes changing jobs an easier process.

He also explained that the Ministry of Labor has taken several steps to control the job market by granting workers the right to move to a new job after finishing the specified employment period indicated on their contracts, granting the worker the right to moving to a new employer if his current employer does not execute his obligations, and developing a system that protects employees’ salaries.

Mr. Al Obad concluded his presentation by pointing out the international agreements that the UAE has signed with the International Labor Organization.

Underground lockup

The first 21 days of my prison life was in an underground lockup at the ‘Asma’ police station. It was an overcrowded cell with a sort of “sardine treatment”. Even elementary facilities to lie down or even a sheet not provided to sleep on.

There I was subjected to the greatest ordeals by being kept incommunicado in solitary confinement in the name of interrogation. I was confined to secret detention centers in different days with all sorts of malpractices resulting in injury, bodily damage and injury to reputation.

Thereafter I was taken to” Al Wathba Central Prison”, Abu Dhabi. At the entrance, there were small cabins. I spent the very first day in one of those cells. They completely shaved off my head with a primitive type of instrument, a torture indeed.

Whenever inmates of the prison go out of the cell they also get shaved off their head. When inside, photographs are taken for identification. After seizing all my belongings including my cloths, they provided two shirts and two pants not of suitable size, indeed blue coloured rags, 2 blankets, a plastic cup and a plate intended to collect food. Both were broken and unhygienic. When I asked for a change, a policeman showed to me another shelf with worse material, playing a cruel joke on a helpless prisoner. After spending one day for complying with prison formalities, I was dispatched to block No.10.

 Central Prison

The block 10 at central prison on the ground floor of a three storied structure. A round shape hall consisting of 21 Nos. of smaller rooms for more than two hundred prisoners. There were six latrine and three bathrooms but most of them were not in useable condition, thus leaving only one latrine and a bathroom for over two hundred prisoners.

The Wathba Central prison is overcrowded with over three thousand prisoners. In scorching heat of the desert, within concrete cages, prisoners are made to live in inhuman conditions without the basic necessities of life. The food was most unpalatable and unhygienic. Prisoners sustain their life with fermented camel meat and wormy food-grains and clamoured there for a glass of cold water in the hot summer days. Not even a fan provided in those concrete cages. Many prisoners were dumped in the corridors and pinning for a little cool breeze. Even a breath of fresh air was a precious boon! The heartening fact is that many innocents are made to languish here under the banner of criminals which cast a stigma on them for life.

Food Schedule

The prison authorities strictly prohibited outside food. The prisoners were cut off completely from outside. Prisoners had no access to daily news not to say about electronic media. They were victims of perpetual torture, mentally and physically. For elementary rituals in cleanliness, the prisoners were provided with a 100 gm. Bath-soap along with 200 gm. Of detergent, for a period of 50 – 60 days.

The food schedule was as follows:

In the morning: A glass of tea, a piece of bread with a trickle of jam or film of cheese.

Lunch at noon : An oily rice preparation with a piece of camel meat or the like. Occasionally, an orange or an apple.

In the evening : A piece of bread, Lentil curry and a glass of tea without milk.

No other item is provided by the authorities. For many weeks, we couldn’t get a tooth brush. Local inmates usually get toothpaste, brush, writing papers and pens through their special visitors. The plea to get a special visit, always used to be rejected by the public prosecutor.

Visiting Schedule

At the central jail there was a normal visiting schedule, every Thursday, from 4 to 6 P.M (2 hours) and on every Friday between 8 and 11 AM. (3 hours) males can visit the inmates. In order to get a place in the long queue, the visitors would have to start their journey at midnight.

The visiting room is constructed with an area of 3 x 4 meters, with two line steel fencing. It is the only visiting area for the entire male prisoners of the central jail. At every nook and comer police were posted. In the dense crowd, it is very difficult to get in and to see the visitor. A visitor can bring cigarettes for their prisoners. Only permitted item is cigarette for the normal visitor.

Prison Clinic

There is a clinic in the jail compound. But meant only for the locals and other Arabic citizens. No action would be taken by authorities if prisoners fall sick.

Lighting System

The entire electrical system in the cells are controlled from outside by guarding police, who never bother to use it in a proper way, for weeks the light may be on and for weeks, it may be in total darkness.

Flogging

The prisoners were regularly flogged alleging that they violated some rule or other. A person resorting to hunger strike gets 10 Nos. of “major flogging”. It can entail delay in his release from the Jail.

Cleaning Duties

Only Indian, Pakistani and Bangladesh prisoners were called for cleaning duties.

The Agony and Pain

During the entire period of detention, we were subjected to all forms of humiliation, mental agony and unimaginable pain. Though the prison with appealing exterior has been constructed, that remained only a show-piece for the police administration to parade before visiting personalities from the outside world. We, along with three thousand other prisoners in the central prison had been subjected to the most cruel torture and deprivation of basic amenities.

The X-rays and other medical documents would demonstrate the pitiable conditions of us. The physical injuries inflicted on us, had endangered the health and the life of ours. This had the effect of reducing us to nervous wrecks.

Financial Losses

I suffered huge losses for non-communication and by not allowing me to have meeting with any person or to sign any paper with the outside world. This resulted in the cancellation of contracts and liability to pay damages to various departments, contractors, dealers and many and varied financial obligations. Since, I was the prime operator of my Trading and Contracting establishments, my absence would have its natural consequence of throwing the different works of the establishment out of gear.

A Long Journey To Court

The prisoners look for the day when they are presented in Court as that is the only occasion when they could breathe fresh air and see the outside world and fellow human beings. The very process of journey to Court is an ordeal. The prisoners are informed about their production in Court only the previous day. Such prisoners who are to be produced before the Court are picked up from different prison cells. The process starts soon after midnight.

The 120 km. trip to the Court and the return there from through desert in harsh hot weather, thus often become ordeals and created agonising situations. Most of the prisoners fall sick for a long duration of about two weeks after every such Court trip.

Whenever a prisoner is taken out of the jail, they will be dragged with shackles, manacled and cuffed on both hands and legs. Such inhuman treatment is inflicted even on women contrary to all injunctions of Islamic faith. We had been handcuffed and legs placed in the painful grip of fetters on all twenty seven occasions when we were taken from prison to Court to face the trial, in an armoured covered truck. Even when its capacity was 15 persons, about 50 persons were packed like salted fish making each one gasp for breath during the journey.

On reaching Court premises, the prisoners are all again packed in a small and narrow room without any ventilation whatsoever. The local prisoners are permitted to smoke there by the support of policemen. We, non-smokers were choked by the dense tobacco smoke gathering inside the tiny hole without any air -outlet. The Court finds time only to deal with a very few cases and most of the cases get adjourned. After returning from the Court, every prisoner was usually subjected to an examination by Alsatian dogs.
