Mohammed Al Roken Uae Human Rights lawyer detained

Posted by 7starsdubai on September 18, 2012


Reveal Activist’s Whereabouts; Investigate Torture Allegations

On September 10, 2012, Human Rights Watch wrote to President Shaikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to say that the UAE’s accession to the United Nations Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment on July 19 was a positive step.

“The allegations of torture and the enforced disappearance of Ahmed al-Suweidi are matters of grave concern and exhibit increasingly brutal tactics by the UAE’s State Security apparatus,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “The UAE’s allies in the West should not remain silent in the face of such serious international crimes.”

Al-Suweidi, whose situation recently came to light, is one of 60 civil society activists and human rights defenders whom UAE authorities are holding without charge following their peaceful calls for political reform. They include two prominent lawyers, Mohamed al-Roken and Mohamed al-Mansoori. The condition of the other detainees is also a cause of concern after reports from people who saw them at a September 6 hearing to extend the detention of six of them, the groups said.

Dr.Mohammed Al-Roken, UAE citizen founding member of Bridging the Gulf foundation for human security in the Gulf region (http://www.bridgingthegulf.org/), member of Amnesty International and a former head of the Emirati Lawyers’ Association, has always been fervent supporter of democracy and spreading of a culture of tolerance and human rights in the Arab Gulf region. Recently he represented a small group of Emirati citizens who called for governmental reform in UAE near the start of the region’s Arab Spring protests. Some of his clients were consequently arrested and convicted earlier this year with national security offenses.

http://www.trust.org/trustlaw/news/uae-crackdown-on-islamist-group-intensifies

Attorney General Salem Saeed Kubaish accused the group of having links to “foreign organizations and outside agendas” and “opposing the U.A.E. constitution and ruling system.”

Leading Emirati human rights lawyer Dr Mohammed Al Roken was detained this week amid a harsh crackdown on anti-government critics in United Arab Emirates, sparking condemnation from international rights organizations, international media even the office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

see also the UN calls on United Arab Emirates to guarantee protection of rights defenders:

http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?NewsID=42492&Cr=Human+Rights&Cr1=

It is unclear whether Mr. Roken, 50 years old, is considered part of this group under investigation or has been charged with a crime. Security forces detained Mr. Roken as he drove to a local Dubai police station seeking information about his son and son-in-law, who had also been arrested, according to Amnesty and Human Rights Watch:

This is not the first time Dr Al Roken has been subjected to persecution; in 2008 the UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General on the situation of human rights defenders expressed concern at the treatment of Mohamed al-Roken:

http://www.amnesty.org/en/for-media/press-releases/uae-human-rights-lawyers-among-13-detained-crackdown-intensifies-2012-07-18

U.A.E. security sources, declined to discuss details of his detention , though requests made by leading international media including the Wall street journal:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444097904577535121065522322.html?mod=googlenews_ws

They were told that Dr. Roken’s arrest was ordered by the national security department from the capital Abu Dhabi.

Dr Mohamed Al Roken received  Alkarama Award for Human Rights Defenders for 2012

This year, the award ceremony will be held at the Geneva International Conference Center (CICG) on 7 December 2012.

IBA Dubai 2011: The Conference that Almost Never Was’

Posted by 7starsdubai on November 11, 2011


Lawyers attending last week’s International Bar Association (IBA) conference in Dubai have slammed the event after several discussion sessions were altered and one even ditched at the last minute.

The International Bar Association which prides itself as the global voice of the legal profession holds an annual conference every year. Countries, and cities, make concerted bids for hosting rights and the prestige and mileage, not to mention the spending power of thousands of international lawyers and their families, it brings to the winning countries are unquantifiable.

IBA Dubai 2011 conference

Dubai, UAE as a hosting city had therefore been determined as many as five years back and delegates had known it would be the host city.

Preparations began in earnest for the conference, with the IBA receiving what it described as ‘firm support and assistance from the Dubai authorities’.

However, just five weeks to the conference the Association received an unprecedented bombshell that the conference was to be cancelled.

The UAE security branch cited concerns that its content might precipitate instability in the region.

Damac Properties 140 Million Dollar suit under way at Dubai International Financial Centre Court

Posted by 7starsdubai on February 24, 2010


original source Emirates Business24-7

Lawyers representing a German investor, Dr Lothar Ludwig Hardt, said the developer allegedly used the money from other property projects to construct Park Towers, the only development that appears to be ongoing out of the five that Hardt had signed up in February 2007.

“These close links show the other four properties are connected to Park Towers… which should have been finished two years ago,” Ludmila Yamalova, legal consultant and partner at Al Sayyah Advocates and Legal Consultants, told Emirates Business. She said Hardt has invested $9.7 million on five properties which, in addition to Park Towers include the two cancelled projects – Lotus Residences and Wildflower; Ocean Heights, which was scheduled for completion eight months ago; and Water’s Edge, where construction hasn’t been started yet.

The German investor is thus demanding refund of $9.7m and is seeking damages and lost profits caused by the developers’ breach of contract and other violations of the UAE, Dubai and DIFC Courts. Yamalova estimates that damages, loss of profits plus all the legal fees could go up to $140m.

“As of today, defendants have not delivered any of the properties and have not complied with any of the contractual obligations to claimants,” a claim form seen by Emirates Business said.

Defendants have committed a series of violations of UAE, Dubai and DIFC Laws in connection with properties such as enticement and unfairness, illegal sale, failure to obtain necessary approvals, failure to commence construction timely, failure to timely register developer and obtain necessary license, mismanagement of escrow funds and violation of trust account regulations, unfair contracts of adhesion, fraud and deception… illegal competition, bribery, trickery, breach of trust, cheating in commercial transactions, money laundering and accomplice liability,” said the claim form.
