Local Group Action - May 2015 Silencing dissent in the Gulf States

In recent months the clampdown by authorities on peaceful dissenting voices has intensified across many Gulf countries. AIUK is working on two cases, Mahdi Abu Dheeb, a jailed teachers’ union leader in Bahrain, and Dr Mohammed Al Roken, a prominent human rights lawyer, jailed in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
