The last posts  from the Website and the Twitter Account of Ahmed Mansoor

Came up to me at 3:50 They came to take me in at 3:50 am

April 8, 2011

The security guard of my building came to my apartment at 3:50 am few minutes ago. I could tell immediately that there is something wrong. i reluctantly opened and asked him what? he said there are three policemen waiting for you in the main entrance, i told him are you sure they are policemen? he said yes. they told me to tell to go and see them down, i told him what they need? he said they say something related to the car. i told him then send them up to my apartment. closed the door and called Dubai police immediately, and i told him the story that i was told by the guard, and i told them that i have been receiving death threats and that i can not go down like this. they told me you are right and we will send some one to check, stay home. after minutes somebody from Dubai police called me from his mobile and asked me guide him to the place, i did, he told me i will call you back.

he called me back after minutes telling that they are suspecting your car and would like to take it. i told him if they want to take the car they can do that in the morning, not 2:50 am. or they are the State Security making their old trick i further said. he said now will you come down or not? i told him if they want the car they can take it, he said what about your belongings, i said there is nothing valuable there, they can take it.

this method is well known method of the State Security because they do not have an arrest warrant, they make such tricks to bring you down and take you. i’m ready to go, but they should either do it the right way or by force.

I refused to go down from my apartment and started writing this email. not sure if they took the car or not, i will not soon know. the scenario is that if they take it, they can put whatever they like inside and make a case against me. i’m declaring here that my car is clean of unlawful material, it has a swiss style knife that put there today after receiving 6 death threats and some papers of no great importance.

 

Regards,

Ahmed Mansoor

Death threats against me and on the verge of dismissal from work

Ahmed Mansoor wrote April  7, 2011

Dear all,

I would like to inform you all that I’m facing an unprecedented campaign against me, the result, until yesterday, before the middle of the night, six clear and direct death threats with their real names, phone numbers and some were using their real photos in their facebook profile. They were all UAE citizens and belong to the tribe called ”Al Mazrouei”. The Campaigns and the outrageous insults against me by some individuals were posted in the blogs, Twitter, Facebook and BlackBerry.  All this campaign came after we posted the petition dircted to the head of state and rulers of the Emirates calling for reform in the FNC (the parliament) to extend legislative and regulatory power to it, and after our appearance in some media channels talking about these demands, revolutions in the region, and implications the sensitive time in the region. The strange matter is that most of those who death threatened me declared their full names, phone numbers and some were using their real photos apparently in their facebook profile!

Post by Ahmed Mansoor Dubai from his Website

additionally, Etisalat (the Teleocom provider), which owns the largest share in my company that I work for (Thuraya Teleocm. Comp.) decided suddenly that they need to move Ahmed Masnoor, to work in their group subsidiary in Paksitan. Although I have no relation with Etisalat whatsoever and my contract is directly with Thuraya and Thuraya does not have an office in Pakistan or elsewhere other than UAE.

I still do not understand under what legal stand does Etisalat order Thuraya to take this action.  Management in my company (Chief Human Resource Officer first, then CEO the same day – yesterday, 6 April 2011) told me that the matter is not in their hand and they have no control over it.

There was no doubt in my mind that the matter was an order from the State Security to find a mechanism to get rid of me.

They would get rid of me in all cases in a politically correct way, if I accept, I go to Pakistan, if I don’t I will be fired.

I certainly refused to go to Pakistan regardless of the offer. I certainly refused to go to Pakistan regardless of the offer. I never signed a contract with Etisalat, and my contract is directly with Thuraya. I never signed a contract with Etisalat, and my contract is directly with Thuraya. The management of my company was professional and friendly and appreciating to my work, they dealt with me on that basis, it was beyond their hands.

Thought they did not state it, it was clear to all of us that this came from the State Security due to my activism in Human Rights, demand for political reform and late appearance in many TV shows.

I expect that they will soon send me termination letter as I refused to go to Pakistan. I expect that they will soon send me termination letter as I refused to go to Pakistan.

Just wanted to keep you in the picture. Just wanted to keep you in the picture.

Regards, Regards,
