43 Law School Academics write open lettercalling for the UAE to release Mohammed al-Roken

Forty Three academics from the Law School at the University of Warwick have written an open letter urging the President of the United Arab Emirates to release immediately and unconditionally human rights lawyer and law professor Dr. Mohammed al-Roken.

Dr al-Roken is a former masters and PhD student of our Law School. He is now a prisoner of conscience serving a 10-year prison sentence, after a mass trial of 94 reform advocates and government critics in July 2013. The trial has been widely condemned by the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, and various UN Special Rapporteurs and international human rights organizations.
