Free activist detained for blogging in the UAE
Ahmed Mansoor is a human rights activist and blogger in the United Arab Emirates. He was arrested under mysterious circumstances by state security on 20 March and hasn’t been seen since. Prior to his arrest, he was the last remaining free human rights activist working in the UAE.
Ahmed’s arrest follows a pattern of detaining human rights activists in the UAE – where many have been tortured. We fear Ahmed could face this fate. Call on Emirati authorities to release him now.
