UAE convicts 30 of Muslim Brotherhood ties

Published: 01.21.14, 13:56 / Israel News

The highest court in the United Arab Emirates convicted 30 men, most of them Egyptian, of setting up an illegal Muslim Brotherhood branch in the Arab Gulf country, sentencing them on Tuesday to prison terms ranging from three months to five years, according to state media reports and rights groups.


All the defendants have denied the charges and human rights groups say the trial has been marred by violations, including secret detentions, arrests without warrants, interrogations without a lawyer present and claims that some of the men were tortured. (AP)
