Peter Binose: Should we be dealing with the United Arab Emirates?

I read the heading ‘UAE delegation to visit SVG’ then I looked at what the press has to say about them.

The United Arab Emirates is a federation of seven emirates: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah, and Umm al-Qaiwain. The federation was formed and became independent in 1971. HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Ruler of Abu Dhabi, was its first President. He was succeeded in both roles by his son HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan in 2004. HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, is Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE. HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan is Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.

The United Arab Emirates as a groupage is one of the most evil regimes in the Middle East. They have hundreds of political prisoners in some case’s whose only alleged crime is to sign a petition or to speak out against the government. They are tortured and slapped with false accusations and all locked up in squalor.

Besides being imprisoned for 10 years, which is the standard prison term for every political prisoner, they and their children are each stripped of their birth right, citizenship. That action is an International crime against humanity.

One of the regimes methods is to capture a citizen by enforced disappearance, whereby they take them and hide them whilst they torture them into an admission of guilt. Only then do they bring them before a court.

The UK was considering breaking off diplomatic relations with the UAE in 2014. But the UAE are their biggest trading partner so that was soon swept under the carpet.

At the time the British Labour Party said the UK should review its relationship with the United Arab Emirates in light of finding in the case of four men who could face the death penalty

Four businessmen who were arrested in the United Arab Emirates have been tortured into making confessions and could face the death penalty, according to a United Nations report and a legal opinion obtained by their British lawyer.

Read the whole story;

Details of torture allegedly inflicted on two Britons by police in the United Arab Emirates have emerged in Foreign Office documents which suggest that one was subjected to a “kicking” from officers who had earlier held a gun to his head.

Ahmad Zeidan, 20, a student from Berkshire, was arrested on drugs charges – which he denies – and alleges that he was beaten, hooded, stripped naked and threatened with rape by police officers.

Hasnain Ali, 32, from London, was also arrested on contested drugs allegations. The former bodyguard to Emirati royals claims that he was beaten, kicked and threatened with Tasers.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) often uses its affluence to mask the government’s serious human rights problems. The government arbitrarily detains, and in some cases forcibly disappears, individuals who criticized the authorities, and its security forces face allegations of torturing detainees. A new anti-discrimination law further jeopardizes free speech and is discriminatory, as it excludes references to gender and sexuality. Authorities denied access to the country to activists who criticized the UAE’s mistreatment of migrant workers. Labor abuses persist, as migrant construction workers facing serious exploitation. Female domestic workers are excluded from regulations that apply to workers in other sectors.

If you look on the internet there are thousands of reports regarding the UAE.

Why is Saint Vincent and the Grenadines tying themselves up with such a dreadful regime? Because the Vincentian leaders are ultra desperate. They have built an airport which there are doubts about its safety and it remains unlicensed. They have built an airport which so far no airline wants to use. They have built an airport without hotel infrastructure and no hotel group will entertain such a project at Argyle. They are struggling to stay in power and are trying to fund an extension to the cruise ship berths and a new city. They have a court case looming which may force them to hold new elections because it is alleged along with plenty of evidence that the 2015 elections were rigged.

What is rather interesting is the UAE have almost the same CyberCrime Act [only many times worse] as Ralph Gonsalves is trying to ram through in parliament. The UAE are arresting people on a wholesale basis with this Act. One of the penalties is even life imprisonment.

I suppose the ULP Government like the UAE government stink so they belong together. One thing for sure the Arab players are far too cute for the likes of Ralph Gonsalves. Unless he is very careful they will take over his plantation known as Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. We already have Italians owning Canouan, now we have the prospect of the UAE owning the rest.

Ralph it matters not that these people are rich and powerful, we should be having nothing to do with them. Why? Because they are bad people and there is plenty of evidence of that. Not I suppose that it matters to you because you are desperate and will scrounge and scrape among like minded people wherever you can.

Remember your ancestor’s comrade you are anciently from Jewish stock and your ancestors captured the first slaves from the West African coast. Whilst the Jewishness may hinder you because the Arabs will not approve of that, but the Arabs will applaud you for the slavery side of the family. The UAE never abolished slavery until 1964, that’s 5o years ago. But it continues in a different form.
