The International Campaign to Boycott the UAE (ICBU) has accused the UAE of intervening in supporting internal fighting and supporting  Khalifa Haftar for greed in Libya’s oil wealth, where the Benghazi Oil Corporation (BPC) has revealed a sale contract with the Dubai-registered Solaco company, which includes the export of 2 million barrels of crude oil from the port of Marsa Al-Haqqa, which is controlled by Hifter forces to the UAE and sold illegally.

The international campaign said that the UAE is famous for buying and selling smuggled oil from Libya, Iraq, Iran and Yemen and forging all documents for easy marketing and sale, adding that the sale of smuggled oil illegally is a violation of Security Council resolutions.

ICBU stressed that the UAE supports the chaos and war in Libya to continue to obtain its oil and non-oil wealth and take advantage of the differences, wars and destruction to ensure the continued flow of oil and money to the UAE.

The UAE has always played roles in its intervention in the destruction of countries and peoples and destabilization of security and stability such as what is happening in Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and the financing of terrorism, all to keep its economy from collapse and its economic superiority by looting the wealth and wealth of other peoples.

ICBU called for a boycott of the UAE’s oil and all UAE products and companies because they are all stolen through wars and chaos sponsored by the UAE, whether in the Middle East or Africa, and the United Arab Emirates continues to violate human rights, especially women’s rights and equality before the law.

The boycott campaign calls on the international community to intervene immediately to stop human rights violations in the UAE and to oblige the UAE authorities to respect human rights laws. The campaign also called on all countries that respect human rights laws and the free world to boycott the UAE because they violate human rights on a daily basis, whether in the war in Yemen or with neighboring countries or their citizens or residents.

The boycott campaign said it was launched in light of the endless human rights abuses practiced by the UAE, as well as the war crimes it committed in Yemen and abuses of workers’ rights, as well as the UAE being the center of modern slavery.

The UAE is today one of the leading countries in human trafficking and is a major supporter of terrorist groups in Syria and other parts of the Middle East, it reported.
