European Parliament Adopts Resolution Condemning UAE Human Rights Abuses

"ICFUAE welcomes the European Parliament’s resolution on the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This resolution is an important step toward holding the UAE government accountable for its ongoing systematic human rights violations against its own citizens and its utter disregard to international law.

ICFUAE has consistently highlighted the UAE authorities’ widespread and systematic human rights abuses and has actively lobbied EU member states and European institutions to take a decisive step in the form of a resolution to start holding the UAE accountable for its actions. 

The UAE has over the past years adopted a wide spectrum of tactics to whitewash and conceal its abhorrent human rights record. The latest of these is the Dubai Expo 2020. The European Parliament’s call on member states and companies to withdraw from the event, is an important step towards accountability of those responsible for the ongoing human rights crises in the country and, as such, justice for its victims.”
