The enforcement of UAE Judgment is stressful but ultimately very rewarding!

[“A creditor is worse than a slave-owner,” Victor Hugo once wrote. “For the master only owns your person, but a creditor owns your dignity, and can command it."]
There are diabolical debtors who hide Judicial decisions, commit fraud or other heinous acts to avoid honouring their obligations under the judgments. The enforcement process, therefore, becomes time consuming, expensive and stressful. Whatever the reason may be, the UAE Judgment debtor(s) will stand as the fiscally responsible party until the Court Judgment is satisfied. His responsibility to do so will pass on to his successor-in-office; the successor regime is obliged to compensate the victim of state wrongs.

In the instant case, the ‘Defaulter-Judgment debtor(s)’  can be legally proceeded against. Besides, the Judgment Creditor is entitled to ‘Mortgage’ his Judgment; the Debtor’s assets could be seized and sold to satisfy the debts. The Judgment Creditor is also legally eligible to transfer his Judgment, part or whole.

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A CASE LIKE THIS?

A true story of ‘outright fraud’ perpetrated by a wealthiest ruling regime of the world, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
Getting a Judgment in a civil lawsuit means the ‘Decree holder’ is then entitled to recover the money and damages from the debtor. But in this unique and historic case that arose in Abu Dhabi, the ‘Emirati debtor’ , who took it as a revenge, trespassed into the office of the ‘Decree holder’ along with his accomplice, a ‘Policeman’ in plain clothes, who held a heavy iron rod of one meter length in one hand and on the other hand a chained handcuff; with which the Decree holder was beaten up in cold blood and a well-planned looting and extortion was forced up on.

The policeman forcibly broke open the office locker with the iron rod in his hand and looted US$.4m worth money and valuables. The Decree holder locked the door and called the police for protection. The police did come, but instead of protecting him from the trespassers, they joined hands with them and the Decree holder was attacked further, shackled, brutally tortured and was literally dragged out of his office and taken to secret ‘detention centre’ . The Decree Holder who was the ‘complainant’ in the civil lawsuit in a ‘Real Estate Deal’ of a nine storeyed building against the said ‘Emirati debtor’, involving above USD 3,00,000.00 Per Annum (INR 2 Crores), way back in the year 1995, had been blackmailed, treated as a ‘criminal’ and was beaten near-death.

The ‘Decree holder’ became unconscious and soon thereafter he was taken to hospital-emergency, Abu Dhabi. He was subjected to the greatest ordeals by being taken from hospital to an ‘underground lock-up’ and kept  incommunicado in solitary confinement. The victim was later taken to central prison at Al Wathba, Abu Dhabi. It took a long period of six months for the person to have his first appearance in the Court. The victim was implicated for ‘using force against Government employee and assault’.

The criminal court found that the case was fully false and fabricated, therefore, the Court ordered the Prosecution to investigate the crime committed by the policemen and the local. Instead of investigating the crime, the Prosecution went to appeal. When the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi, comprising a three-judge panel, ordered the immediate release of the victim from prison, all of them dropped the charges they had deliberately made against the victim, the ‘Decree holder’.

The Court ordered the state authority to prosecute both the policemen and the local Emirati and to restore the victim’s dignity and to compensate him for all his losses. “The Court, the three-judge supreme bench, praised the appropriate conduct and courage of the victim in their ‘Landmark Judgment’ and concluded that the victim is innocent; rather ‘a martyr.

Even though the Juries in different Courts of Abu Dhabi, had taken a series of decisions in this case, in absolute terms in favour of the victim, strangely enough, none of those Court Orders were executed by the UAE authority. Instead of rightly accepting the blame for the gross misconduct of their Policemen and also the Prosecution, the ‘State authority issued an ‘extremely fraudulent order’ to expel the ‘Decree holder’ from their country, as if he had been punished for a crime. The ‘Decree holder’, the then holder of ‘four consecutive Judgments’ in absolute terms in his favour, therefore, was deported from the UAE, that too at highest risk of being multiplied victimization.

‘Such a punishable fraud of misrepresenting the facts perpetrated by the UAE authority, for deporting the ‘Judgment Creditor’, who was an Indian investor with ‘three valid trade licenses’ of well established and profitable ‘General Contracting and Trading Firms’ under his full ownership in Abu Dhabi’ (The assets of which were valued a minimum One Hundred Million US$ Dollars at the time of his mishap in Abu Dhabi), resulting in total destruction of his life, his businesses and his profession, adds inescapable burden on the ‘Wilful Defaulters’  of Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Back in India, consequent on the gravest cruelties and injustices meted out to him in Abu Dhabi, UAE, it was the primary duty of the ‘Government of India’ to protect the ‘Judgment Creditor’, his dignity and justice; and to help the victims of many other forms in a similar situation in that country. Unfortunately, this historic case of a Non-resident Indian-investor had been buried in the darkness for two decades by the Indian authorities, despite repeated representations and two specific Judgments from Delhi High Court in 1997 & 2007 respectively which were filed by the ‘Judgment Creditor’ as directed by the Supreme Court of India.

It was the statutory obligation of Government of India to take all necessary measures as instructed by the High Court of Delhi as early in the year of 1997 in order to enforce the valid Legal Judgments, passed by the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, UAE. “The subject who has suffered the injury is not the individual person but the State itself”; as explained by ‘Professor Theo van Boven’ (1934-1983).

The sending state, Government of India, is solely responsible for the act or omission that violates the ‘Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR) 1963’ particularly Article 5, enforced from 19-3-1967.

“The foreign State, UAE, was bound to provide appropriate reliefs to the ‘Judgment Creditor’, whose ‘Constitutional Rights’ have been blatantly violated in the first place by Abu Dhabi police to extort money and valuables.

The UAE authorities were further bound to provide proper remedies for the repeated victimizations which the ‘Judgment Creditor’ was forced to suffer as a consequence of the unique and the most barbaric, ‘fraudulent misrepresentation’ perpetrated by the executive branch to ‘deport’ him from that country. It has resulted in the colossal losses of billions of US$ Dollars to the Judgment Creditor’s various business institutions in the UAE, apart from the consequences of his physical and psychological trauma, the emotional pain and ‘sufferings’ which forced him to live a lost life for all the years that followed”.

‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’

The accumulated ‘case histories of injustices’ received by the ‘Overseas Indians’ Legal Cell (Est.1996)’ from different quarters of Arab Gulf, forced the ‘Judgment Creditor’ to endeavour towards formulation and implementation of the ‘Mutual Human Rights Law and Reparation Mechanisms’ between the Government of India and the Gulf (Gulf Cooperation Council – GCC) countries, mandating our elected representatives and officials to effectively intervene in eliminating discrimination and imbalances of ‘Indian Diaspora’ working in different countries.

The enforcement of Judgments and legal remedies is a fundamental element of the rule of law which is an integral part of ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation’ Movement; this also involves the recognition and protection of the dignity of individuals. The mandate of the UN General Assembly resolution ‘A/RES/60/147’ reads the ‘States should ensure that their domestic law is consistent with their international legal obligations’.

The regional inter-Governmental Human Rights Mechanisms of ‘American States’ signed with its neighbouring countries in 1948, the ‘Council of Europe’ adopted it in 1950, and the similar ‘Charter in Africa’ adopted in 1987, are prominent illustrations of the expanding vistas of Human Rights. This constitutional approach basically protects them from all forms of exploitation and social injustices from foreign States even outside the Charter.

It’s a ‘shameful fact’ that similar arrangements haven’t even been conceived yet by the Government of India. As a result, the Indian expatriates are exposed to the extreme degree of Human Rights Violations in the Arab Gulf. Once the ‘Charter’  is implemented, millions of ‘Indian Diaspora’ and their families will be the primary beneficiaries of ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’ .

The preface of ‘Indo-Gulf Reparations’ Booklet’ was written by the late ‘Hon’ble Mr. Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer’ (a renowned Jurist and former Judge of the Supreme Court of India), and the covering letter was written by ‘Mr. K. Sukumaran’ , a former Judge of the High Courts of Kerala and Bombay, who pleaded for the ‘Judgment Creditor’ before the Supreme Court and the High Court of Delhi.

HERE WE TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT’S THE LEGAL POINTS OF INTEREST:

“The Doctrine of State Immunity”

In a landmark case, the ‘secret’ wife of the late King of Saudi Arabia has won the right to sue his son and Saudi prince for breaching a contract. The king’s son, argued he had “state immunity” and the court had no jurisdiction to try Mrs Harb’s claim. But Mrs Justice Rose, the High Court of England and Wales, threw out the prince’s argument, confirming that personal immunity ceases when a head of State is no longer in office for any reason. Link: ‘U.K. High Court Judgment’

“Decree Holders Entitled to Enjoy Fruits of the Decree Expeditiously” -
Says Supreme Court of India !

A three-judge bench of the Supreme Court of India has observed that Decree Holders must enjoy the fruits of the decree obtained by them in an expeditious manner. The Bench, speaking through Justice Dave, has noted the unscrupulous tactics used by Judgment Debtors to evade the process of law and eventually frustrate the entire efforts of a Decree Holder in getting the decree executed. Link: ‘Supreme Court Judgment’

“How does fraud affect a victim? ‘The impact of fraud on victims’ -
Supreme Court of India

The term “Fraud” has been clearly analyzed and adjudged by the highest Judiciary of India. The Supreme Court reiterated that ‘fraud vitiates all’ and also the age old saying ‘Fraud avoids all judicial acts ecclesiastical or temporal’. Fraud is an act of deliberate deception with a design to secure something, which is otherwise not due. The expression “fraud” involves two elements, deceit and injury to the person deceived. It is a cheating intended to get an advantage. Link: ‘Supreme Court Judgment’

Also view his ‘companion Emirati landlord’, published in another Journal.]

Ever heard of a victim marking and celebrating the 20th anniversary of the gravest disaster in his life? It’s the tragic drama of the ‘Judgment Creditor’, in real life.  He is not celebrating it with cheers, but with agonizing memories of the nightmare of the disaster which shattered all his fortunes and pushed him to a state of complete derailment of his enviable physical, mental, financial and social well-being; and made him to live a lost life for all the years that followed.

Regrettably, the credit goes to ‘the Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi’, who set ablaze the destruction, by issuing an extremely “Fraudulent Misrepresentation” to deport the ‘Judgment Creditor’ from that country. Fraudulent misrepresentation occurs when one makes representation with intent to deceive and with the knowledge that it is false; allows for a remedy of damages and rescission. Had the judicious judgment of the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi in absolute terms in favour of the Judgment Creditor been executed in time, his agonies could have been abated two decades back!.

The apparent inaction by ‘the Government of India’, despite the specific directives and orders of the Delhi High Court, and the serious failures and inadequacies to comply with statutory obligations on the part of ‘the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA)’ has also to be blamed in this regard.

The victim, the ‘Judgment Creditor’ was an investor in Abu Dhabi, his ‘Business Assets’, contracting and trading firms, stood valued at a minimum of One Hundred Million U.S. Dollars when the dreadful tragedy took place at the prime of his life. The ‘Judgment Creditor’ is forced to mark this twentieth anniversary of  ‘Looting and Extortion’ by the Abu Dhabi police, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), due to the Non-execution of the country’s ‘Landmark Judgments’.

Read the shocking story of police looting, the bizarre twist in the case of police extortion in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (U.A.E)

“Shop burgled by Abu Dhabi police in plain clothes, US$ .4m worth money and valuables looted” – a real-life story:
Abu Dhabi, UAE; Thursday 26th October, 1995

The expatriates being robbed of their wealth and valuables and exploited by local people pretending to be cops is not at all sensational news in the UAE. But in this true incident under report which took place on Thursday, 26th October, 1995 the policeman who played the lead role in looting was ‘a real police officer who was working in Abu Dhabi police department’.

The victim, in the incident was a high earning engineering expert and investor, deeply committed to his profession with his three major business establishments including ‘Engineering, Contracting and Trading’ in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

A brief background of the story
On behalf of his principal company, the ‘Premier General Contracting Establishment’, the contractor had signed a business contract with an Emirati, ‘Mr Hassan Saeed Hassan’, covering a Nine Storied Building proposed to be leased out for a sum of 10,80,000.00 UAE Dirhams (AED 1.08million) Per Annum.

When a dispute arose with Mr Hassan Saeed, the contractor, on the basis of legal advice, instituted a Civil Suit in Abu Dhabi Court for settling the issue. The ill-intention of the local was that, he wanted to cancel the lease deed when the restoration of entire building was over. The conspiracy on the part of Hassan Saeed, to avoid paying debts was one of the important and thrusting points in the civil suit.

The Honourable Judge of the Civil Court took a decision in favour of the contractor. Consequently, Hassan Saeed got annoyed and insisted the contractor to withdraw the lawsuit unilaterally.

Scene 1.
Ahmed Abdulla Abdul Khadir, a policeman in plain clothes from Abu Dhabi police (who haven’t been disclosed his identity), along with Hassan Saeed Hassan (the  Emirati, accused in the civil case, who has already been warned by the Civil Court against his wrongful motives) came to the contractor’s office.

The policeman in plain clothes, who had come prepared and was shouting and rotating an iron rod of one meter length in one hand; and on the other, a chained handcuff. Hassan Saeed was walking close to him. They have entered the first floor of the office where the contractor was alone at the time.

The policeman enquired about the original documents of the building contract and job orders between Hassan Saeed and the contractor which the contractor refused to disclose.

Scene 2.
The contractor was threatened with dire consequences unless he withdrew the lawsuit. The contractor was not willing to yield to such illegal and unjust demand, which amounted to extortion.

There upon, the contractor was subjected to the most inhuman treatment with painful physical injuries and otherwise.

They wanted to grab and destroy the related documents of the  contract from him by force because an ‘Interim Order’ of the Court was against Hassan Saeed. In this attempt, the entire office was ransacked, drawers opened, files thrown.

The telephone connection in the office was snapped. The policeman in civil dress beat the contractor harshly with a chained handcuff; the chain was rounded on victim’s neck and pulled around. He paid no heed to the humble requests of the victim.

The policeman forcefully broke open the office locker with the heavy iron rod in his hand. At this juncture, some of the cash, worth above AED 3,50,000 which was kept for the distribution of wages for employees was found by them.

Scene 3.
So much of money! The policeman’s eyes bulged out in wonder. He looked at his Emirati friend as if he never expected there’s such a large amount of money. The currency blurred their eyes. All in a hurry, both of them grabbed the bunches of currency, and hurriedly stuffed into their pockets. In their hurry and perplexity, part of the currencies spilled over the floor of the cabin.

In the meantime, the contractor’s younger brother arrived at the office with lunch. As he arrived the contractor asked him “to close the door and call the police”. The policeman in plain clothes managed to get out of the office with the stolen money and bundled documents.

The Emirati too tried to escape from the office of the contractor, with his hands and pockets full, protruding with the stolen money and valuables; however, he was unable to leave.

Scene 4.
The Policeman in civil dress was standing outside the office which remained closed. A crowd had gathered around the office. He was holding an iron rod of one meter length in his hand with which he was hitting the door of the office and warning any one from coming near the office and was shouting Indian, Pakistani, Bangali all are thieves and procurers.

At this point of time police patrol team arrived at the spot. They were, in fact, allies of the intruders. This batch of policemen who came responding to the alert of the contractor, immediately hit the contractor and his brother. Their faces had reflections of triumph and cruelty. They were like ferocious animals, beaten both the victims brutally, almost near to death. Then they handcuffed them behind their backs and dragged them out of the office, on through the street, and kicked them into the police car. All these brutal torture and humiliations were happening in front of a large crowd.

The frightening  deadly torture continued with shocking brutality throughout the journey as well as in a detention centre and subsequently getting admitted as an unconscious victim to the hospital emergency, Abu Dhabi.

Scene 5. (UAE Torture)
Here is a narration of the haunting memories and the cruel and inhuman torture suffered by the victim, in his own painful words:

“There were four persons present (in plain clothes) when they tortured me in an underground detention centre. I was forced to lay down on the floor by them. My face was close to the floor and my hands still cuffed behind my back. They took out their Arabic turban and rolled it on my entire head and left me to suffocate; then started hitting and kicking on my head with their legs. And then they tried to pull-out my injured finger nails with a plier type nail clipper. Due to this cruel and painful torture, my finger nail were entirely torn apart”. (Full Text: UAE Police Torture’)

[The above narration is not exhaustive but only a pointer to untold miseries, losses, sufferings; the haunting memories of the ‘cruel and inhuman torture’ and social humiliation suffered by the victim; the ‘Judgment Creditor’.  He had to undergo extremes of inhuman and deadly tortures from Abu Dhabi Police which no human being could withstand. However, he was spared from death.  For more details and updates, please visit the website URL: www.JudgmentCreditor.com/]

Judgments & Orders:

The Legal Court of First Instance of Abu Dhabi :-
It took six months thereafter, for the contractor to have his first appearance in Court. The ‘Duty and Responsibility’ of the authority to protect a Judgment Creditor against the threats of violence was left unattended. The victim was framed a false case, alleging “Using force against Government employee and assault”.

The Legal Court of First Instance of Abu Dhabi found that the victim was innocent, the case (NO. 152/1996) was wholly false, baseless and that it was fabricated by both the plaintiffs, Hassan Saeed Hassan and Ahmed Abdulla Abdul Khadir, the policeman. The Court found that, the Prosecutor was guilty of proceeding against the contractor, who in fact, was a victim of police brutality. The Court acquitted the contractor [and his brother as well] of all the charges levelled against them and directed the authorities to investigate the violent crimes committed by the Policemen and the Landlord such as trespassing, physical aggression, looting etc. (Judgment First Instance 152/1996 dated 10/4/1996)

[The 'Judgment of the Legal Court of First Instance' has never been executed or investigated; instead the authorities were trying their best to hide the shameful act of the police. The prosecution taken-up the case to the Apex Court, the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, UAE].

The Apex Court of Abu Dhabi:-
The case came up before the Apex Court, comprising the three-judge panel. The prosecution found to be grossly negligent and blamed for its criminal involvement in the case. The contractor was granted bail on the filing of the appeal. However, despite the bail and sureties he was not released from the prison.

During the next hearing, the Policeman dropped his claim from his complaint with a declaration attested by the Notary Public.  The landlord, Hassan Saeed followed the suit and admitted his guiltiness. The judges threw out all those papers and had cautioned them of the serious nature of their crime which calls for long term of imprisonment apart from financial penalties and confiscations.

“The Court praised the properness of the behaviour and courage of the victim and concluded that the victim is innocent; rather ‘a martyr.  The appellate review highlighted the culpability of the policeman and emphasized the notoriety of his actions and violations of person’s rights. “It further   reiterated the condemnation of prosecutor”.  The Court ordered immediate release of the victim, ‘restoration’ of victim’s dignity, respect and reminded about the roles and responsibilities of authority towards the victim for reparation for the losses he suffered while pronouncing a ‘Landmark Judgment’.

An excerpt from the Judgment reads as follows:-
“Verily the Islamic Law and the entire Positive Laws have honoured Man and protected his freedom, his honour, his property and his soul. Hence, if a man was killed, while protecting these, he is considered to be a martyr. And limitation of his freedom without any rights is an unforgiving crime and the same is mentioned in the provisions of articles 2 and 3 of the Penal Procedures Code. And it is proved in this case that the policeman along with the plaintiff went to arrest the accused and to limitate his freedom….” (Apex Court Judgment 188/1996 dated 19/5/1996).

“THE ‘LANDMARK JUDGMENTS’ IN THE HISTORY OF UAE”
Having due respect, inspiring loyalty and commitment to Law, the Judiciary of Abu Dhabi, listened to, conducted and decided upon the case precisely in tune with the various provisions prevailing in that country.  Download the Judgment:-

“FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION”  - A DIRTY GAME OF THE ‘WILFUL DEFAULTERS’, THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF ABU DHABI, UAE!
Instead of honouring the Judgments of the Legal Court of First Instance and the Apex Court, the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, and restoring the dignity and respect of the victim as directed therein, ‘the UAE Administration’ chose to deport the victim with “Fraudulent Misrepresentation” of truthful facts, by repeating the same false charge, that a tricky policeman had framed against the Judgment Creditor to blackmail him, (which had been dismissed later on finding it to be false by both the Courts of that country). By quoting the very same false charge to deport the Judgment Creditor (who was also a victim of police brutality), the Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi has not only tarnished the image of UAE in indelible ink; but also made a mockery of the entire Judiciary of that country.

THE SCENARIO BACK HOME, IN INDIA
And back in India, what action was taken by the Government of India?
“Nothing, except a cruel and deliberate betrayal over the past two decades”.

In India, the ‘Legal fight for Justice’ took in very many proceedings before the Supreme Court of India and the High Court of Delhi. Unfortunately, India has not made any diplomatic efforts or given any respect to the orders of Delhi High Court in 1997 and 2007.

The concurring Judgments against Abu Dhabi police from the Highest Court of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and the ‘Concealment of the Judicial Decisions’ by the administration of that country, and to deport the ‘Judgment Creditor’, were un-challengeable F.I.R. against the Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi, who was duty-bound to compensate the victim in every respect for his physical and mental injury, illegal imprisonment and ill-health due to the near-to-death torture by policemen. In contrast there to, the illegal deportation resulted in the absolute loss of his various ‘Business Establishments’, and he was forced to live a lost life for all the years that followed.

AWAIT RELEASE!
“25 Smart Reasons to take the ‘UAE Judgment Execution Case’ to the International Court of Justice (ICJ)
The Government of India is duty bound to take all necessary measures to enforce the Judgments passed by the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, including approaching the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the settlement of this unique and the most barbaric action perpetrated by the head of a civilized nation,  Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, that caused ‘Multi-billion Dollars’ worth of damages to the Judgment Creditor’s business establishments. The ‘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.

UAE: Ruthless crackdown on dissent exposes ‘ugly reality’ beneath facade of glitz and glamour
November 18, 2014 News, Amnesty International

Scores of activists in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been harassed, arrested and in some cases tortured in custody according to a new report by Amnesty International that sheds light on the repressive tactics widely used by the government to silence its critics.

“There is no freedom here”: Silencing dissent in the UAE lifts the lid on the climate of fear that has taken hold in the country since 2011, with the authorities going to extreme lengths to stamp out any sign of dissent, criticism or calls for reform in the wake of the mass popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa.

“Beneath the façade of glitz and glamour, a far more sinister side to the UAE has emerged showing the UAE as a deeply repressive state where activists critical of the government can be tossed in jail merely for posting a tweet,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for the Middle East and North Africa Programme.

Those targeted include lawyers, university professors, students and civil society activists, some of whom are linked to the Reform and Social Guidance Association (al-Islah), a peaceful grassroots organization that the government claims has links to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. The clampdown has also targeted their family members.

The report, published ahead of the Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi this weekend, exposes the huge gulf between the public image the UAE tries to project of a dynamic, modern and burgeoning economic power, home to luxury hotels, skyscrapers and designer shopping malls; and the darker reality of activists routinely persecuted and subjected to enforced disappearance, torture and other ill-treatment.

“Millions of spectators from across the world are expected to tune in to watch the Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix this weekend – yet most of them will have little clue about the ugly reality of life for activists in the UAE,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.

“The scale of the crackdown has been chilling and the truth is that the UAE’s dreadful treatment of activists critical of the government, and their families, has gone largely ignored by the world. It is time for the UAE’s international allies to stop turning a blind eye to the rampant abuses by the authorities and to place human rights firmly before business interests.”

The clampdown on dissent was sparked by a petition from a group of 133 people addressed to the authorities in March 2011, calling for political reform and for the right to vote and elect a parliament.

More than 100 peaceful activists and government critics have been prosecuted or jailed for politically motivated national security or cybercrimes offences since then. More than 60 of them continue to languish in prison, serving sentences of up to 14 years.

Amnesty International’s report details how these men and their families have been intimidated or arbitrarily arrested and imprisoned by the authorities.

Among them is prisoner of conscience Dr Mohammed al-Roken, a prominent human rights lawyer who had for years been a target of government harassment because of his criticism of the UAE’s human rights record and his advocacy for democratic reforms. He is serving a 10-year prison sentence following a deeply flawed mass trial of 94 activists before the State Security Chamber of the Federal Supreme Court – widely known as the “UAE 94” trial.

In another emblematic case, 25-year-old activist Osama al-Najjar was arrested in March 2014 after he expressed, in comments posted on Twitter, concern over the ill-treatment of his father, Hussain Ali al-Najjar al-Hammadi, and other political prisoners held at al-Razeen Prison in Abu Dhabi. After his arrest, he was held in solitary confinement where he says he was punched and beaten repeatedly all over his face and body and threatened with electric shocks.

His father is serving a total of 11 years’ imprisonment after being convicted under vaguely-worded national security charges following two unfair mass trials. He was held in solitary confinement for eight months in conditions amounting to enforced disappearance following his arrest in 2012.

“The UAE authorities must halt all such arbitrary arrests and detentions, as well as enforced disappearances. Both father and son in this case are prisoners of conscience who should be immediately and unconditionally released, alongside all others detained purely for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression and association,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.

Amnesty International is calling on the UAE authorities to urgently overhaul laws that criminalize the peaceful exercise of the rights to freedom of expression and association, including the cybercrimes law and a repressive new anti-terrorism law passed in August 2014.

Some of those jailed said they were tortured and ill-treated, describing how interrogators had pulled out their fingernails; beaten them severely and suspended them upside down for long periods; torn hair from their beards and chests; and threatened them with electric shock torture, rape and death.

Amnesty International is urging the UAE authorities to publicly condemn torture and take effective measures to prohibit and prevent all forms of torture and other ill-treatment, as well as to independently and impartially investigate all allegations of torture and hold perpetrators to account.

“The UAE cannot proclaim to be a progressive nation or hold its head high as a member of the UN Human Rights Council, and a business partner on an international stage while it is locking up critics merely for peacefully speaking their views,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.

The “UAE 94” trial was marred by irregularities and its proceedings were deeply flawed and unfair. The justice system in the UAE is neither independent nor impartial, with courts often appearing to do little more than rubber stamp the decisions of the UAE executive. Defendants are often denied access to lawyers and the right to appeal their verdict. In many cases proceedings have relied on forced “confessions” to convict defendants, in contravention of international human rights law.

Harassment and intimidation tactics employed by the authorities also include revoking the nationality of activists and punishing their families by appearing to block their access to career or educational opportunities.

The UAE authorities responded to the concerns raised by Amnesty International in this report to say that the promotion of human rights is an “ongoing process”.

“What we need to see now from the UAE authorities are swift and concrete steps that prove the government is truly committed to protecting human rights, not more spin designed to gloss over ruthless repression at home,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui.

Real-life ‘Judgment Fraud’ by the UAE Administration Uncovered!

Shaikh-Saif-Bin-Zayed-Al-Nahyan-Deputy-Prime-Minister-and-Interior-Minister-UAEReal-life ‘Judgment Fraud’ by the UAE Administration Uncovered! Friday, April 04, 2014 New Delhi

The case of the victim emerged from manipulation of power by the UAE Administration. The subsequent fact that the judgment(s) had been pronounced long past and that its implementation was twisted by the culprits who have access to those in power. [Photograph: Lieutenant General Sheikh Saif Bin Zayed AlNahyan, the Minister of Interior, United Arab Emirates]

There may be countries in the world which delays justice on the basis of enforcing judgments. But the Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), is the only place in the world as a ‘real-life examples of ‘Judgment Fraud’, to avoid honoring obligations!

“A story of frightening, inhuman and deadly tortures; the blatant violation of the law and the most shocking travesty of Constitution of the United Arab Emirates to which the victim was exposed to”.

A brief background of the case

The victim (hereinafter called “Petitioner”), in the case was a high earning engineering expert and investor from India with established contracting and trading businesses. He had a unique opportunity of observing the country for over 18 years. He had been an active participant in the developmental activities of that country. On 26th October 1995 the petitioner signed a lease agreement on behalf of his principal company, the ‘Premier General Contracting Est’., with a landlord, Mr. Hassan Saeed, a native of Abu Dhabi, covering a Nine Storied Building proposed to be leased out for a sum of UAE Dirhams 1.08 million (USD 2,94,000.00) Per Annum, with condition to renew semi-annually.

Civil Suit against a local

The trouble started when the landlord wanted to wriggle out of the contract and was not willing to perform his obligations under the terms and conditions of the contract. The petitioner had already taken up essential renovations including painting, replacement of civil and electro-mechanical fittings that worth UAE Dirham 3 Lakhs. Meanwhile, the landlord had sold some of these flats to others against the terms and conditions of the contract and contrary to law. As such, a dispute arose with the landlord and the petitioner.

On the basis of legal advice, the petitioner instituted a Civil Suit in Abu Dhabi Court for settling the issue. The conspiracy on the part of the 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.

Though the petitioner had acted only as a law abiding citizen, and in accordance with legal advice secured in that behalf, and had only sought relief from a court of justice, the landlord took it as a personal affront and planned and executed violent and reckless revenge against the petitioner defying all legal provisions and principles of fair-play. He was claiming to be a close associate of the office 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.

The frightening, inhuman and deadly tortures to which the victim was exposed to: The petitioner had to undergo extremes of inhuman and deadly tortures from Abu Dhabi Police which no human being could withstand. However, he was spared from death.

The critical incident took place on Thursday, 26th October 1995, around noon when the landlord along with one of his accomplices made a forcible entry into the petitioner’s place, the petitioner was threatened to withdraw the Civil Suit. The petitioner could not yield to such illegal and unjust demands and therefore refused to accede. Reacting terribly to the situation by securing the help of ‘the extortion mafia working under Abu Dhabi Police’, they ransacked the entire office of the petitioner and robbed him of all cash and valuables. [A large quantities of money, worth UAE Dirham 3.5 Lakhs, was looted from the vault which was kept for the distribution of wages for employees]. The petitioner sought intervention from the police. The police did come, but instead of helping the petitioner, they started abusing him, beating and kicking, in a horrifyingly violent manner, using with hands, fists, legs and even (hands) with metal shackles.

The petitioner was shackled and literally dragged out of his office along the street to the Police vehicle, in the presence of known friends and bystanders.

He was then confined to a detention center where he was again brutally tortured. There was a policeman who shouted “We know how to teach Indians” and asked the petitioner to sign some documents. When the petitioner refused, they forced him to lay down on the floor, took out their Arabic turban and rolled it on petitioner’s entire head and started hitting and kicking on the head with their legs. Another in uniform pulled out his fingernail with a cutter.

Due to the heinous forms of torture, the petitioner’s finger nail was entirely torn apart. As a result, the petitioner became unconscious and soon thereafter he was taken to hospital-emergency, Abu Dhabi. Treatment was made without removing the shackles, hands cuffed behind the back. Over a dozen of X-rays were taken at the hospital of the different parts of his body.

Bizarre twist in the case of police extortion by duty officer of the rank of Captain, Abu Dhabi Police The duty and responsibility of the authority to protect the judgment creditor against the threats of violence was left unattended.

When those atrocities were being committed in the police station, the petitioner’s sponsor, Mr. Easa Ahmed met the duty officer of ‘Asma Police Station’, who is of Captain’s rank to enquire about the arrest of the petitioner. He was then told a concocted story that accused (the petitioner) had hit three of his police staff and an Emirati, and that one police official and the Emirati, the local man, was in a serious condition and admitted in the hospital and that, they were not permitted to allow him to see the accused (the petitioner).

After hearing such a story from a high ranking official, the sponsor did not pursue the matter, in view of the authoritarian methods prevalent in that country. Such (fake) stories have been repeated many times to others who approached to help petitioner. (A similar medical report submitted by them before the Criminal Court was proved false and subsequently rejected by the Abu Dhabi Court of Justice).

The petitioner 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 warned about the consequences if he will not withdraw the civil suit which was filed against the landlord. The dreadful agony and blackmailing was continued therein for 21 days and later the victim was taken to central prison at Al Wathba, Abu Dhabi.

Al Wathba Central Prison, Abu Dhabi

The Al Wathba Central Prison in Abu Dhabi was overcrowded with more than three thousand prisoners – three or four times larger than its actual holding capacity. In scorching heat of the desert, within concrete cages, prisoners were made to live in inhuman conditions without the basic amenities of life. Not even a fan had been 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 food was most unpalatable and unhygienic. Prisoners sustained their life with fermented camel meat and wormy food-grains and clamoured there for a glass of cold water in the hot summer days. 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.

The Agony and Pain

Throughout the entire period of detention, the petitioner was 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. The petitioner, along with three thousand other prisoners in the central prison had been subjected to the most cruel torture and deprivation of basic amenities. [Link: The Prison-life of the Petitioner – ‘My Prison-life in Abu Dhaib']

Financial Losses

Torture and other cruel, inhuman treatment continued unabated at Al Wathba prison, Abu Dhabi. The petitioner was not allowed to communicate with anyone. The petitioner’s contracting and trading activities got stammered, causing heavy loss.

The petitioner suffered huge losses for non-communication and by not allowing him 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 the petitioner was the prime operator of his Trading and Contracting establishments, his absence had its natural consequence of throwing the different works of the establishment out of gear.

Business Loss

All these resulted in the loss of physical assets, material damages, strategic resources, trust, reputation, loss of corporate identity; the goodwill, prestige, image, opportunities and social status, all painstakingly built by the petitioner over two decades of prime of his life were lost. A corporate identity established with due professional care and attention had been tarnished. The anguish resultant from the deprivation of his establishments, assets and reputation earned exclusively through the untiring personal efforts of the petitioner causes extreme mental depression which will virtually make his life only a vegetable existence. [Link: The details of Business Establishments in Abu Dhabi, owned by the petitioner]

A Long Journey To Court

The victim was brought to the court on 27 (Twenty Seven) occasions, dragged with shackles, manacled and cuffed on both hands and legs as if the victim is a dangerous criminal. Such inhuman treatment was inflicted even on women contrary to all injunctions of Islamic faith.

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 in an armoured truck and the return there from through desert in harsh hot weather, thus often become ordeals and created agonizing 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. Although its capacity was 15 persons, about 50 persons were packed like salted fish making each one gasp for breath during the journey.

False Allegations against Petitioner The blatant violation of the law and the most shocking travesty of Constitution of the United Arab Emirates to which the victim was exposed to:

On 11/02/1996, after four months of arrest, a false case was registered against the petitioner under the case No. 152/1996 offenses, alleging “Using force against Government employee and assault”. Untold sufferings were also inflicted on the petitioner as an under-trial prisoner. The public prosecution demonstrated extraordinary misconduct in its investigation.

The petitioner was kept waiting all these days in a small and narrow room in the Court premises, along with other prisoners without any ventilation or so, but not called up for hearing. The witnesses of the petitioner and his counsels were present, but their depositions were also not recorded. This blocking of access to a Court of Justice also constitutes violation of Human Rights by the State itself. All these constitute the grossest and wanton violation of Human Rights.

It took six months thereafter, for the petitioner to have his first appearance in Court. The witnesses did not care the threat of State police and Public prosecution, and they dared to explain the facts. The Court listened to the evidences of eye-witnesses from different nationalities. 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.

On 10/4/1996 the innocence of the petitioner had been ultimately upheld by the Hon’ble Judge Mohammed Abdul Raheem Al Khoori, Judge of Abu Dhabi Legal Court of first instance, acquitted the petitioner of all the charges levelled against him in the presence of Mr. Mohammed Obaid Al Kabi, the Prosecuting attorney, and Mr. Abdul Fattah Sayed Ahmed, the secretary, under the case No. 152/1996, and directed the authorities to prosecute the policeman involved and also the plaintiff – for being guilty of deception.

The atrocities committed did not come to an end up there; the office of the Public Prosecutor, Abu Dhabi filed an appeal against the decree of the legal court of the first instance. On 18/04/1996 the appeal was set for hearing. The petitioner was granted bail on the filing of the appeal. However, despite the bail order and sureties, he was not released from the prison.

During the next hearing, the police officer, Mr. Ahmed Abdulla Abdul Khadir, dropped his claim from his complaint in the Apex Court, with a declaration attested by the Notary Public Abu Dhabi, under number 2314/96 dated 17/3/1996. The landlord too declared that he had no case against the victim and accepted his attempt to create false evidence against the victim. The other two policemen involved in the case, who in fact, became the instrument of horrific torture designed to extort money, declared-that they were misguided by the police officer.

On 19/5/1996 the eminent Jurists Panel of Apex Court of Abu Dhabi, under presidency of the Judge: Hon’ble Abdul Baqi Abdul Hakam, and the membership of the two other judges (1) Hon’ble Hasan Shareef Al Jafri (2) Hon’ble Mohammad AI Aboodi, upheld the finding of the Trial Court and commented adversely and strongly against the illegal and high- handed acts of the officials.

The Apex Court found that the victim is innocent; rather ‘a martyr’. The Court observed further that the case was wholly false, baseless and that it was fabricated by the police for personal gain. “The Court observed that all the pieces of evidence indicated the properness of the behavior of the victim, the accused. Some of these findings of fact are proof of violation of Human Rights and International Conventions”.

“It further reiterated the condemnation of prosecutor”. The appellate review highlighted the culpability of the policeman and emphasized the notoriety of his actions and violations of Human Rights.

The Court, therefore, ordered restoration of the victim’s dignity, and compensate him for all his losses while pronouncing a ‘Landmark Judgment’.

The Court having been convinced about the innocence of the petitioner quoted the Islamic Law that should be practiced by everyone following the Islam Religion. The Apex Court illustrated the petitioner as a ‘martyr’ in the Judgment and highlighted the intense miseries he went through.

An excerpt from the Appellate Judgment as follows:-

“Verily the Islamic law and the entire positive laws have honoured man and protected his freedom, his honour, his property and his soul. Hence, if man was killed while protecting these, he is considered to be a ‘martyr’. And limitation of his freedom without any right is an unforgiving crime and the same is mentioned in the provisions of articles 2 and 3 of the penal procedure code. And it is proved in this case that the policemen along-with the local went to arrest the accused, without any right and curtailed his freedom”.

Deportation Order of General Directorate Police, Abu Dhabi, UAE Real-life examples of judgment fraud, the way how the Ministry of Interior, United Arab Emirates (UAE), bypassing it’s Court Orders to avoid honoring obligations!

In the wake of the concurrent judicial findings of the Court, the victim should have been restored to his former status and position and adequately compensated for the mental agony and sufferings and pecuniary losses suffered by him. Unfortunately, the Abu Dhabi officials acted in total defiance of the findings and sentiments expressed by the judicial establishments of the country.

The petitioner was detained at further extent without the due respect of the law of the land. On 28-9-1996 by virtue of the administrative decision number 227/1996, the authority decided to deport the petitioner from the UAE in total disregard to the crucial legal position that the petitioner had a valid visa of a ‘sole investor’ and had his ‘own business’ establishments in the UAE. The petitioner was re-victimized in a manner that was extremely ‘libelous’ – by ‘false statement of facts as if he was punished for a crime’.

The deportation order was signed by one Captain Hamad Ahmed, then head of security affairs department, general directorate police of Abu Dhabi, UAE.

The petitioner was deported back to India in total negation of the law, virtually denying all the constitutional rights of that country. The constitution and union laws of the UAE were blatantly violated abridged as enshrined including the well-established principles of ‘International Laws and the Covenants’.

The deportation order reads: “Under the charge of applying force against a government employee ”which could instill fear and suspicion in the general public, associating or dealing with the petitioner. It caused a situation of re-victimization associated with great pain, loss of dignity, loss of the court ordered monetary compensation including his inability to recapture the past glory, which the victim could have achieved had the judgment of the Legal Courts of Abu Dhabi had been implemented in time.

The Apex Court had already found the claim against victim was fabricated. An excerpt of Judgment reads “All the evidence indicates to the appropriateness of his behavior”. “The court was ruled that, there is not a shred of evidence which can prove the accusation. On the contrary there was ample evidence that it was the policeman who assaulted the victim”.

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. The very concept of having an independent judiciary to protect the citizen from Executive excesses crumbles down by such an action on the part of Government officials.

The domestic law of the country permits recovery for reputational harm and economic losses flowing from the falsity of a defamatory statement. A true copy of ‘the Deportation Order, by ‘Captain Hamad Ahmed is available here (Link: ‘Deportation Order of General Directorate Police, Abu Dhabi, UAE’ Arabi & English)

‘No Entry & Cancellation of Residence Visa’ The official in the UAE was instrumental for cheating an Indian Investor, depriving him of his rightful benefits from a Portfolio of Judgments

of that country. The Judgment of the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi was worth hundreds of millions as compensation to restore the life of petitioner, his dignity and his business establishments.

The petitioner’s visa has been cancelled and has made an endorsement of ‘No Entry’ in his passport. There was no legality to cancel a valid residence permit of a rightful investor. The petitioner was not involved in any crime or any consequences that may ultimately call for his removal him from the UAE. The victim was a ‘judgment creditor’ and he was living in the UAE over the last 18 years and was a sole investor of a group of business establishments. The Emirate, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), is answerable vicariously and otherwise for all such violations of law.

The officials in the Ministry of Interior, UAE, not only cheated a Judgment Creditor but it also cheated the entire pillars of constitutional doctrine of that country. The Ministry of Interior, Abu Dhabi, UAE, also owe huge debts to the Judgment creditor, solely and exclusively responsible for the closure of ‘his various business establishments in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates’.

Solidarity with UAE lawyers

Federal-supreme-court-in-Abu-Dhabi-UAESolidarity with UAE lawyers
17 February 2014 ‘Law Gazette U.K’

Earlier this month, the UN special rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, Gabriela Knaul, published the findings of her nine-day visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Knaul concluded that the UAE judiciary is under the ‘de facto’ control of the government; that lawyers are working without detailed understanding of a critical state security law that was enacted but never published; that lawyers are threatened, harassed, pressured and placed under surveillance by UAE authorities; and that evidence against defendants is ‘sometimes manipulated and fabricated by the police or other security agencies and the prosecution’.

Knaul also stated that there is ‘credible information and evidence’ that detainees are arrested without warrant, blindfolded, taken to unknown places, held incommunicado, sometimes for months, and tortured.

Among the cases that were brought to Knaul’s attention were the convictions last year of a number of lawyers on charges of ‘plotting to overthrow the state’ after an unfair trial marred by irregularities. Those convicted to lengthy sentences included former judges Ahmed al-Zaabi and Mohammed Saeed al-Abdouli, prominent human rights lawyers Dr Mohammed al-Mansoori and Dr Mohammed al-Roken, and their lawyer Salem al-Shehhi, who was arrested at the offices of the state security prosecutor where he sought information about his clients.

All were arbitrarily detained for months and complained of being tortured in detention, including through prolonged solitary confinement, physical beating and sleep deprivation.

Knaul was also prevented from visiting Qatari physician Mahmoud al-Jaidah in prison despite expressing grave concerns about torture and due process in his case. Dr al-Jaidah was arbitrarily detained for nine months in a secret prison in Abu Dhabi before he was charged. The verdict in his case will be announced on 3 March, although until now no fewer than three lawyers have ceased to represent him within days of being instructed and no lawyer has been permitted to visit him.

We stand in solidarity with the lawyers in the UAE and call upon the authorities to unconditionally release them and quash their convictions. The UAE must understand that its persecution of members of the legal profession and its manipulation of the judiciary have damaged its reputation more than the words and actions of any single dissident.

The Ministry of External Affairs, New Delhi has written to the petitioner that the Government of India has established various arrangements for the welfare of Indian community and assistance to the distressed Indians abroad. (Letter: May 02, 2013).

Soon after the second reminder of the petitioner, the ministry wrote insistently, vide its letter that whatever the Ministry had written about it are only their ‘VISION’ and nothing else. The captions may hence, not be treated as confirmations. (Letter: July 09, 2013).

When the information sought under Right To Information Act, the Ministry of Labour & Employment has confirmed the MOU with GCC countries etc., to be treated as NIL (Letter: July 19, 2013)

Serious failures and inadequacies to comply with statutory or regulatory obligations on the part of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and the ‘Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs’ (MOIA) now stand proved by the subsequent communications received by the petitioner from the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India”.

The dreadful truth is, the bureaucrats in both the Ministries are pretend to be public servants, all the while they are greedy blood-suckers selling a vast majority of Indian workforce to all forms of modern-day slavery, to the so called Gulf States. On the receiving end, these migrants are exposed to gross violation of Human Rights and exploitation without due respect of their life and dignity.

The ‘Sourcebook of Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’ reveals a truly horrific experience, roughly 19 years of the author’s prime of life, who is a UAE torture survivor of inside the regime’s brutal prison in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and most importantly a THREE times of ‘Judgment Creditor’ from the Legal Courts of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and still is frustrated in the course of enforcing his judgments.

The book also exposes ‘the Myths and reality’ of the Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs & Ministry of Indian External Affairs.

The bureaucrats in both the Ministries (MOIA & MEA) are pretends to be public servants, all the while they are greedy blood suckers selling Indian workforce to the so called Gulf States, no matter how deeply their wounds may run. Indian migrants in the Gulf countries are continue to be exposed to the gross violation of Human Rights and exploitation, without due respect of their life and dignity.

On the other hand, the victimization is multiplied many fold by the lack of knowledge or understanding of international norms and standards among the judiciary, that has been entrusted with a greater responsibility of supporting the victims and the survivors….VISIT ‘JFS PUBLICATIONS!’

Allegations of Torture in the UAE Require Action

Allegations of Torture in the UAE Require Action
21/10/2013 Huffington Post UK

Over the past year there have been a number of allegations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that authorities are torturing prisoners. Defendants in a trial of political dissidents, three Britons held in Dubai and two Syrians have come out to say they have been tortured. Now, smuggled handwritten letters by Egyptian prisoners facing trial over alleged Muslim Brotherhood links say that they have been tortured as well.

The reaction from authorities has been to either ignore allegations or dismiss them as fantasy. This approach undermines the UAE’s commitment to the United Nations (UN) Convention Against Torture, which authorities signed up to in July 2012. In each case of alleged torture there has been an emphatic failure to conduct a thorough and impartial investigation.

It is of grave concern that authorities in the UAE are being allowed to misappropriate a crucial treaty for the purposes of furthering a broadly positive international image. Shortly after signing up to the Convention Against Torture, the UAE won a seat on the UN Human Rights Council at the same time as Human Rights Watch were reporting on enforced disappearances and torture in the country. Whilst Emirati authorities fail to meet their obligations it is difficult to conclude anything other than their very public commitment to human rights is nothing but a public relations exercise.

Handwritten letters by Egyptian prisoners include allegations consistent with those made by others, with prisoners saying they have been subjected to beatings, electric shocks and exposed to extremes of temperature in solitary confinement. Prisoners say guards have threatened them with HIV infection, sexual abuse and death while revealing that when they complain to the prosecutor, he has threatened them with further torture if they do not admit the charges against them.

The trial of these Egyptians is due to start on November 5th, when defendants will face charges of illegally establishing a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood in the UAE. It is crucial that authorities address these allegations prior to trial, otherwise the process will have little credibility. Authorities must approach this with impartiality in line with Article 12 of the Convention Against Torture, which requires an investigation wherever there is reasonable ground to believe an act of torture has been committed.

Concerns about the fairness of a trial for the Egyptians have been raised with the release of a report by the International Commission of Jurists that described a similar trial, that of the UAE 94, as ‘manifestly unfair’. It should be noted that of the 61 men currently serving prison sentences from that trial, 20 of them are on hunger strike protesting against alleged mistreatment by prison authorities.

The link between the UAE 94 and the trial of the Egyptians is clear to see. Both groups are accused of conspiratorial Muslim Brotherhood activities, which is the bogeyman of the day for Emirati authorities when dealing with political opponents. Indeed, the role of the UAE in Egypt’s military coup has been called into question following an interview with Ahmed Shafiq in which the former Egyptian Prime Minister admitted the UAE had given weapons to the Egyptian army prior to the massacres at Rabaa al-Adawiyya and Al Nahda.

There is a clear disconnect between the commitment to protect human rights made by the UAE and the reality of their actions in dealing with a political group they dislike and citizens who call for democratic reforms. Authorities have committed to preventing torture and sit on the Human Rights Council, yet fail to uphold their treaty obligations and openly support massacres by the army in Egypt.

At the heart of the issue here are human stories. The Sonbol family of Egypt is a tragic case in point. Ali Sonbol is an Egyptian who was arrested in the UAE on December 19th 2012 and is accused of illegal Muslim Brotherhood activities. He claims to have been severely beaten by prison guards, leaving him with a number of serious injuries. Tragically, Ali Sonbol’s 24-year-old son was killed in the massacre at Rabaa al-Awawiyya in August. Given that Ali Sonbol is being held at a secret prison it is unclear if he knows his son has been murdered. This family has suffered the full brunt of the UAE’s policies in aggressively attacking anyone associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.

It is a sad state of affairs when a country is allowed to, quite clearly, abuse the just cause of protecting human rights. For the Convention Against Torture and Human Rights Council to be effective it is vital that the UAE are demanded to investigate all credible allegations of torture. This includes the case of the Egyptian prisoners, the UAE 94, the three Britons and that of the two Syrians. Until that happens, the UAE are being allowed to make a mockery of the international protection of human rights with families like the Sonbols left to suffer the horrific consequences.

Introduction
Torture has many faces. It is both secretive and ubiquitous, an intensely personal ordeal and a practice that affects society as a whole. While its particular features frequently have a local imprint, its prevalence is truly worldwide. This double nature is also reflected in global efforts to combat torture. Prevention of, and accountability and reparation for, torture are first sought at the domestic level. Indeed, international human rights law requires victims1 and those acting on their behalf to exhaust domestic remedies first before bringing claims to international bodies.

Advocacy efforts are also often directed at local actors, with a view to changing domestic mindsets and practices. At the same time, these efforts do not take place in isolation. Regional and international fora provide platforms for litigation and advocacy, and cooperation often transcends national and regional boundaries. Yet in practice, it is still rare for those working on torture cases to come together and share their expertise and experience. As a result, national laws and practices, and particularly jurisprudence, often remain little known externally beyond national borders and lawyers and others concerned may be ignorant of precedents, strategies and best practices developed elsewhere that may provide important tools for their daily work.

Relevant actors may also not fully benefit from having links to their counterparts in other countries and regions as networks remain underdeveloped. Victims of torture and ill-treatment The widespread practice of torture has resulted in a large number of victims from diverse backgrounds. While it is difficult to generalise, and therefore correct to say that anyone may become a victim of torture, it is equally clear that certain categories of persons are at a comparatively greater risk.

This applies in particular to those who are considered as an “enemy” of a regime or a particular way of life. Ill-treatment takes myriad forms, as demonstrated by the jurisprudence of courts and human rights treaty bodies, reports and the experience of human rights defenders.84 In addition to custodial issues of long-standing concern, such as poor prison conditions, solitary confinement, and denial of adequate medical care, which were found to be prevalent to varying degrees in all regions,85 there has been an increasing practice of ill-treatment outside the custodial context. This applies in particular to the use of excessive force, and other methods, during demonstrations. In the course of the uprisings in the Arab world, police, security and army forces repeatedly used teargas, birdshot and other weapons.

In Bahrain, for example, protesters were targeted and in several instances deliberately attacked – even though they ostensibly did not pose a security threat – a pattern suggesting that the policing of demonstrations was used as a cover for torture. The Legislative Framework: Making Torture and Ill-Treatment a Criminal Offence Many legal systems are characterised by shortcomings that undermine protection against, and accountability and justice for torture. These shortcomings are often due to the fact that unreformed ordinary legislation, such as criminal laws, does not adequately reflect international standards and best practices. As a result, such laws are ill-suited to address torture-specific concerns. Jurisprudence: Remedies and reparation for torture and ill-treatment While compensation frequently constitutes the primary or even only form of reparation, certain high courts have awarded broader forms of reparation, especially in the context of constitutional remedies. … Download “Full Report

UAE plots behind Egyptian coup d’etat

UAE plots behind Egyptian coup d’etat
Cairo: August 18, 2013

Egypt-Is-Arena-for-Influence-of-UAEThe Abu Dhabi regime, United Arab Emirates, is one of the major sponsors of ‘Egyptian coup d’état’. Western diplomats here said they believed the Emiratis were privately urging the Egyptian security forces to crack down the supporters of ousted President Mohamed Mursi, that killed hundreds of people, when authorities forcibly broke up protest camps.

“Western governments took a wait-and-see approach even after the military committed its first mass killing, shooting more than 60 supporters of Mr. Morsi at a sit-in on July 8. Western diplomats did not engage in earnest until July 24, when General Sisi, in dark sunglasses and military regalia, delivered a fiery speech asking the public to turn out for demonstrations giving him a “mandate” to take on the Islamists. Security forces killed 80 more Morsi supporters in their second mass shooting on the day of the demonstration.

The next morning, Morsi aides and Brotherhood leaders say, their phones began ringing with American and European diplomats fearing an imminent blood bath.

The administration enlisted people on opposite sides of the contest unfolding in Egypt. Diplomats from Qatar, a regional patron of the Muslim Brotherhood, agreed to influence the Islamists. The United Arab Emirates, determined opponents of the Islamists, were brought in to help reach out to the new authorities.

But while the Qataris and Emiratis talked about “reconciliation” in front of the Americans, Western diplomats here said they believed the Emiratis were privately urging the Egyptian security forces to crack down.

Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan, the Emirati foreign minister, went to Washington last month and urged the Americans not to cut off aid. The emirates, along with Saudi Arabia, had swiftly supported the military takeover with a pledge of billions of dollars, undermining Western threats to cut off critical loans or aid.

The Israelis, whose military had close ties to General Sisi from his former post as head of military intelligence, were supporting the takeover as well. Western diplomats say that General Sisi and his circle appeared to be in heavy communication with Israeli colleagues, and the diplomats believed the Israelis were also undercutting the Western message by reassuring the Egyptians not to worry about American threats to cut off aid.

Israeli officials deny having reassured Egypt about the aid, but acknowledge having lobbied Washington to protect it.

When Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, proposed an amendment halting military aid to Egypt, the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee sent a letter to senators on July 31 opposing it, saying it “could increase instability in Egypt and undermine important U.S. interests and negatively impact our Israeli ally.” Statements from influential lawmakers echoed the letter, and the Senate defeated the measure, 86 to 13, later that day”.

Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Kuwait, relieved to see the back of the Brotherhood, seen as a threat to their own monarchies, immediately promised $12 billion in aid to the new authorities, to help overcome imminent fuel and wheat shortages.

Western allies warned Egypt’s military leaders right up to the last minute against using force to crush protest sit-ins by supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohamed Mursi, arguing they could ill afford the political and economic damage.
