UAE Federal Court acquits two detained Libyan businessmen


The Federal Court of the United Arab Emirates has found two of the Libyan detained businessmen not guilty and decided to set them free Monday morning.

The two Libyan detainees, Mouad Al-Hashmi and Adel Al-Nasef, were acquitted after being held under forced disappearance along with other Libyan businessmen without trial or even family visits.

These two and others remaining in the UAE detention were arrested in 2014 without giving them or their families the reasons why they got apprehended, yet later the UAE authorities said they arrested the Libyan businessmen upon links to Muslim Brotherhood Group and sponsoring Fair Libya Operation in Tripoli Airport attack.
