Write for Prisoner of Conscience Ahmed Mansoor


"On 29 May, the State Security Chamber of the Federal Appeal Court in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) sentenced prominent Emirati human rights defender Ahmed Mansoor to 10 years in prison and a fine of 1,000,000 Emirati Dirham on charges including “insulting the UAE and its symbols.” He is a prisoner of conscience."

Please write a letter, send an email or call the UAE authorities to overturn this conviction, a miscarriage of justice.

Ask for the immediate release of Ahmed Mansoor.

"...he is a prisoner of conscience detained solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression, including through his human rights work;"

Ask that he might have "immediate and regular access to a lawyer of his choosing, his family, and any healthcare he may require."
