Urgent Action: Prisoner in terminal stages of cancer

Alia Abdelnoor Mohamed Abdelnoor is serving a 10-year prison sentence and is in the terminal stages of cancer. On 10 January 2019, as her health deteriorated, Alia was transferred from a government hospital to Tawam Hospital in the al-Ain Emirate in the UAE. She is chained to her hospital bed and held in solitary confinement. Her family was not immediately informed of the transfer and was only able to visit her in hospital for the first time on 11 February.

Take action.
