The UAE Federal Supreme Court pronounced today the detained Libyan businessmen, Salim Alaradi, Kamal Eldarat and his son, Mohamed Eldarat, and Issa Mannae not guilty and freed them of all charges put against them.

In a follow-up statement, the Libyan Association for Victims of Torture and Enforced Disappearance in UAE said this verdict will remain unfair and unjust until it takes effect and until the Emirati authorities apply it by releasing the acquitted businessmen without any preconditions or prolongation, stressing that they must be allowed to repossess their forcefully-taken rights.

Back on March 14, the Federal Supreme Court cleared Muad Al-Harari and Adel Nasef of charges of funding Libya Dawn Operation, which is branded as a terrorist organization in the UAE, the strong ally of rogue General Khalifa Haftar, the commander of Dignity Operation.

The UAE authorities arbitrarily and unlawfully arrested 10 Libyan businessmen in August 2014 and accused them of sponsoring the General National Congress and Libya Dawn Operation. However, they set free four of them in December of the same year including Rifaat Hadagha, who talked about the brutal torture he received during his detention.
