The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information denounced today the detention of an Emirates citizen , Hasan Mohamed elHamady in Khorfikan on 4/2/2011 for supporting the Egyptian revolution that was sparked by the Egyptian youth and which millions started to follow demanding democracy and Mubrarak to step down.
Hasan , 50 years old, a clerk in the ministry of education , has given a speech after Friday prayer in some mosque ,where he declared his support of the Egyptian revolution and of the demand of millions of Egyptians that Mubarak would step down. He was arrested shortly after and detained in an unknown location for 3 days. His family learnt that he was accused of “disturbing public security”.
The Arabic Network said, “ It is very disturbing that the authorities would conceal such an oppressive police apparatus under the pleasant facade. The UAE police is no less brutal that the Saudi. Instead of deploying the promised reforms , freedom of expression is shamelessly repressed”.
The Emirates government is losing credibility among the Egyptians because of its support to Mubarak and his oppressive government , which Egyptians demand their dismissal. The UAE government is added to the list of governments resisting the right of Egyptians to democracy.
