United Arab Emirates: Human rights groups renew call for release of peaceful activists convicted at grossly unfair mass “UAE 94” trial

Ten human rights organizations appeal to the government of the United Arab Emirates to release immediately and unconditionally all those imprisoned solely for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression, association, and assembly as a result of this unfair trial.
