(Unofficial translation – original statement provided below)
The Arab-European Center of Human Rights and International Law follows with great concern the continuous detainment of Mr. Salim Al Aradi and Mr. Kamal Al Darrat and all Libyan businessmen arbitrary detained in the UAE without any criminal charges punishable by law regardless of the fact that more than 366 days have passed while they remain detained.
This contradicts all laws and international agreements for human rights. We do hereby request the prompt release of all those detained in the UAE. We further ask that they refrain from the illegal methods, arbitrary arrests, harsh treatment, and torture which is in contradiction of all international agreements/treaties that those detained are subject to its protections.
We further appeal to all international organizations especially Human Rights Watch and Al Rakeeb Human Rights organization to press on the UAE to release those detained and to compensate them for time spent under detention. The Arab-European Center of Human Rights and International Law considers all those detained innocent as no charges have been offered regardless of the prolong detention.
