Write for Prisoner of Conscience Ahmed Mansoor
FROM AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL:
"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."
