(BELARUS) Human Rights Centre Viasna Report: On Saturday, October 2, announced the arrest of Komsomolskaya Pravda journalist Gennady Mozheiko, who a few days ago wrote about the accused of killing a KGB officer in Minsk #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.04: According to human rights activists, Mozheiko was detained on October 1 in Moscow. ….

#AceDailyNews says on Saturday, October 2, the Belarusian human rights center Viasna announced that the site of Komsomolskaya Pravda in Belarus was blocked because of an article about a KGB officer accused of murdering. The author of the material is in the detention center on Akrestsin Street: According to human rights activists, the journalist was detained in Moscow 13:45, October 2, 2021: Meduza


The detention of Mozheiko was confirmed by Komsomolskaya Pravda, which had been unable to contact the correspondent since Friday evening.

The journalist’s mother, Irina, told the publication that the last time she communicated with her son via video link on the afternoon of September 30. Then he was in a hotel in Moscow.

On the night of October 1–2, Mozheiko’s mother received a call and was told that he had been detained and was in a pre-trial detention center in Akrestsin Street in Minsk. Before that, according to her, the KGB officers searched the journalist’s apartment. “They seized flash drives, stickers and badges of 2001,” said Mozheiko’s mother. The search warrant indicated two articles of the criminal code: part 3 of article 130 (incitement of racial, national, religious or other social hostility or hatred) and article 369 (insulting a government official).


The detention of Gennady Mozheiko, according to Viasna, may be related to his work. A few days ago, Mozheiko spoke with a classmate of Minsk resident Andrei Zeltser, who, according to the Belarusian authorities, is guilty of the murder of a KGB officer. Zeltser died during the department’s operation in Minsk.

“There were literally four sentences published [of the recollections of Andrei Zeltser’s classmate]. <…> She says that she studied with Andrei Zeltser, he was “positive, truthful, advocated the truth,” and she “does not know what happened to him”. She speaks about what happened with amazement, ”Vladimir Sungorkin, editor-in-chief of“ KP ” , told RBC the content of the text.

(BEIJING) Court Report: A prominent Chinese billionaire has been sentenced to 18 years in prison, the latest in a string of punishments against outspoken corporate bosses #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.29: He was found guilty of “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” – a charge often used against activists….

#AceNewsDesk says that outspoken billionaire Sun Dawu 67 jailed for 18 years in China and runs one of the country’s largest private agricultural businesses in the northern province of Hebei but has in the past spoken out about human rights and politically sensitive topics.

Sun Dawu
Sun Dawu runs one of the country’s largest private agricultural businesses in the northern province of Hebei.

Other charges against him include illegally occupying farmland, assembling a crowd to attack state agencies and obstructing government workers from performing their duties. He was also fined 3.11 million yuan ($478,697; £343,227).

Sun’s company is among China’s biggest, with businesses ranging from meat processing and pet food to schools and hospitals.

He was reportedly detained last year, along with 20 relatives and business associates, over a land dispute with a government-run farm. 

At the time, he said dozens of his employees were injured in an incident with police related to the dispute, according to an AFP report. 

Sun is said to be close to some prominent Chinese political dissidents and has in the past criticised the government’s rural policies. 

He was one of the few people to openly accuse the government of covering up an African swine flu outbreak, which affected his farms in 2019, and later devastated much of the country’s industry.

He also was sentenced to prison in 2003, for “illegal fundraising” but the case was overturned after an outpouring of support from activists and the public.

Sun reportedly denied many of the accusations against him in a pre-trial hearing, describing himself as an “outstanding Communist party member”.

He did however reportedly admit to making mistakes, including posting messages online.

“The way they’re investigating me now is making those close to us suffer and those who hate us rejoice. I wish to take the charges upon myself, even if they’re severe, in exchange for the release of others. We are people who have made contributions to society,” he said.

China has been cracking down on businesses and entrepreneurs in the country. Major technology companies including Alibaba, Didi and Tencent are being investigated for a range of regulatory issues.

(PAKISTAN) JUST IN: A 17-year-old Christian man from the city of Ghafari, was drugged, kidnapped and tortured by a group of attackers before he was dumped in a desolate area #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.20: Local human rights activist “Lala Robin Daniel expressed his disappointment at the police’s attitude: ‘As Christians we are a minority and we are alone. For us there is no justice and no equal rights.’”

PAKISTAN: Christian man abducted and raped by a group of attackers in Faisalabad,” by Shafique Khokhar, Asia News, June 14, 2021:

Even though his father reported his son’s disappearance, the police did not act. The victim was eventually able to make it home alone after five days in captivity.

The story began on 6 June when the young man went missing; two days later, his father Daniyal alerted the police about his disappearance, but nothing was done.

At that point the father decided to turn to human rights activist Lala Robin Daniel, who spoke to AsiaNews about the case.

According to what is known so far, Danish was drugged and rendered unconscious before he was kidnapped by a Muslim named Ali Raza and his gang. They held him captive in an unknown place and raped him, then dumped him at a place near Faisalabad, from where the young man was able to go home and inform his family.

Lala Robin Daniel expressed his disappointment at the police’s attitude: “As Christians we are a minority and we are alone. For us there is no justice and no equal rights.”

Although the authorities are now looking for the culprits, no one has been arrested. For their part, Danish’s family are demanding justice.

“We are committed and will not spare any of them,” said Lala Robin Daniel. “We shall try our best to bring them to court and see them punished according to the law. We call upon high police officers to cooperate and arrest these monsters as soon as possible,” he added.

Danish’s is not an isolated case. Violence against Christians in Pakistan is commonplace. Amid the rising number of abductions, child sexual abuses, forced conversions and forced marriages, the Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace (CCJP) organised a seminar at the Sacred Heart parish in Sahiwal to ask the federal and provincial parliaments to adopt new legislation to put an end to such practices…..

(NEW ORLEANS) ICE/ERO REPORT: HRVWCC Investigation: Agents have deported a ‘Rwandan National’ on Friday back to his own country and turned him over to the law #AceNewsDesk report

ICE/ERO Officers have removed a Rwandan citizen for human rights violations: Beatrice Munyenyezi was sentenced to ten years in federal prison for procuring her naturalization based on false statements to immigration officers about her role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide. Munyenyezi participated, aided, and abetted in the persecution and murder of Tutsi people. Her conviction was the first in the United States for concealing one’s personal participation in the Rwandan genocide.

Munyenyezi was a member of the National Republican Movement for Democracy and Development (MRND), the political party in power during the genocide and its youth wing, the Interahamwe. The Interahamwe ran a militia that played a key role in the genocide. Witnesses testified that Munyenyezi staffed a roadblock near the Hotel Ihuriro in Butare, Rwanda, where she personally inspected IDs and decided who would pass and who would be selected for inevitable death. Some victims were assaulted at the roadblock; others were led to a nearby forest where they were killed.

On March 10, 1998: Munyenyezi entered the United States after making false statements to obtain status; she adjusted her status to lawful permanent resident on January 19, 2001, and on July 18, 2003, became a naturalized U.S. citizen. Agents from ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations’ Boston field office spent over six years investigating Munyenyezi, traveling to Rwanda nine times to identify and interview witnesses. In 2010, HSI Boston special agents arrested Munyenyezi for unlawful procurement of U.S. citizenship:

“Beatrice Munyenyezi concealed her past to wrongly obtain United States citizenship, obscuring her direct participation in the Rwandan Genocide — an atrocity of immense scale which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children,” said William S. Walker, acting special agent in charge for Homeland Security Investigations’ Boston field office. “Homeland Security Investigations special agents work tirelessly to investigate and seek prosecution for those who commit human rights violations and seek a safe haven here in the United States.”

On February 21, 2013: Munyenyezi was found guilty of two counts of Unlawful Procurement of Citizenship or Naturalization in the U.S. District Court in New Hampshire, based on false statements on her immigration forms about her membership in the MRND and the Interahamwe. On July 15, 2013, the court sentenced Munyenyezi to 10 years in federal prison. Munyenyezi filed several appeals of her conviction including a petition for review and a petition for writ of habeas corpus. On March 3, 2021, the First Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s denial of her motion to vacate her conviction:

While serving her federal sentence, ICE initiated removal proceedings against Munyenyezi. On March 16, 2020, an immigration judge ordered Munyenyezi removed from the United States to Rwanda and on January 27, 2021 the Board of Immigration Appeals dismissed her appeal of the immigration judge’s order.

“This removal sends a clear message that the United States will not be a hiding place for those who commit heinous human rights violations,” said Caridad Cephas-Kimbrough, acting field office director for ERO New Orleans. “The tireless dedication our enforcement and removal officers and HSI partners put into this case is a testament to their commitment to enforce our nation’s immigration laws and ensure human rights violators like Munyenyezi are held to those laws.”

The criminal prosecution and subsequent appeals were litigated by attorneys in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston and New Hampshire with support from ICE Boston, Office of the Principal Legal Advisor. The removal case was handled by attorneys from ICE New Orleans, Office of the Principal Legal Advisor and Enforcement and Removal Operations. DOJ’s Office of Immigration Litigation also litigated the case.

The enforcement efforts targeting Munyenyezi were supported by ICE’s Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center (HRVWCC). Established in 2009 to further ICE’s efforts to identify, locate and prosecute human rights abusers in the United States, the HRVWCC leverages the expertise of a select group of agents, attorneys, intelligence and research specialists, historians and analysts who direct the agency’s broader enforcement efforts against those who are known or suspected to have participated in persecution, war crimes, genocide, torture, extrajudicial killings, female genital mutilation, and the use or recruitment of child soldiers.

Since 2003: ICE has arrested more than 460 individuals for human rights-related violations of the law under various criminal and/or immigration statutes. During that same period, ICE obtained deportation orders and/or physically removed from the United States 1,064 known or suspected human rights violators. Additionally, ICE has facilitated the departure of an additional 172 such individuals from the United States:

Currently: HSI has more than 155 active investigations into suspected human rights violators and is pursuing more than 1,675 leads and removal cases involving suspected human rights violators from 95 different countries. Since 2003, the HRVWCC has issued more than 77,000 lookouts for individuals from more than 110 countries and stopped over 333 human rights violators and war crimes suspects from entering the U.S:

Members of the public who have information about foreign nationals suspected of engaging in human rights abuses or war crimes are urged to call the ICE tip line at 1-866-DHS-2423 (1-866-347-2423). Callers may remain anonymous. To learn more about the assistance available to victims in these cases, the public should contact ICE’s confidential victim-witness toll-free number at 1-866-872-4973.

ICE continues to implement interim civil immigration enforcement priorities directed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to focus its limited resources on threats to national security, border security, and public safety. ICE carries out its duty to enforce the laws of the United States in accordance with the Department’s national security and public safety mission.

#AceWorldNews – VENICE:Dec.12 – Venice Commission experts will visit Ukraine early next year to discuss issues including the government lustration law, RIA Novosti reported, citing a source in the European Council.

Several provisions of the legislation that concern about one million officials and public and law enforcement officers contradict international human rights law, according to the seventh report of the monitoring mission by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.

The Venice Commission, an advisory body of the Council of Europe, is composed of independent experts.

#AceNewsServices – Nov.19 – Featured Editors Post – The Declaration of No Human Rights – This is just one man’s story of being able to leave Guantanmo Bay in 2007 and then again in 2009 and is still detained in solitary confinement.

Written Nov.10 2014 – During Human Rights Week – Reprieve.   

by Shaker Aamer, Illustrations: Tom Scotcher 

From the column ‘Behind the Bars: Guantánamo Bay’

I have been in Guantánamo Bay for 12 years now. George W Bush’s administration cleared me to leave in 2007, Barack Obama’s in 2009. I am still here. By generously providing me with additional time in a “Single Cell Operation” [that’s solitary confinement by another, more obfuscatory, name], the US military has allowed me time to make a closer study of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), as it was adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1948.

Various senior members of the Bush administration periodically asserted that international human rights and humanitarian law was “outmoded” and needed to be updated to face modern challenges. However, the longer I have remained in this terrible prison, the more I have come to realise that the US has already amended the UDHR by imposing their own addendum to each Article. Here, then, is a recently declassified copy of the Declaration of No Human Rights (DNHR):

Article 1.

In its original format, Article 1 reads as follows:

“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.”

By its actions in Guantánamo Bay, however, the US has inserted an addendum to Article 1 that reads as follows:

“BUT, all Muslim men held in Guantánamo Bay are considered to be something rather less than human, the worst of the worst of America’s enemies. Indeed, the detainees should have fewer rights than the iguanas that roam the naval base. Because these 148 men are not considered human beings, they should be subjected to as many indignities as the perverse human mind is capable of imagining.”

Article 2.


“Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status…”


“This rule shall not be applied to the US naval base at the tip of Cuba, which the US coerced from Cuba in 1903. This should be given a special status with rigid distinctions made on whatever grounds the American military can dream up, but especially on grounds of religion.”

Article 3.


“Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.”


“Everyone who is Muslim, and insists on growing a beard, has the right to three inedible meals and 24-hour detention in a cell.”

Article 4.


“No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.”


“But any inmate of Guantánamo Bay has to be shackled and cuffed for any step he takes outside of his cell.”

Article 5.


“No one shall be subjected to torture.”


“But everyone in Guantánamo shall be subjected to as many different forms of torture as Donald Rumsfeld or whoever is playing the part of Donald Rumsfeld can imagine, and this shall continue until they are released.”

Article 6.


“Everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law.”


“Everyone in Guantánamo Bay should be recognised only as a number and will be referred to as a ‘package’ when being taken from one ‘reservation’ to the next.”

Article 7.


“All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law.”


“The men held in Guantánamo are not equal before the law and therefore are not protected by any law at all.”

Article 8.


“Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.”


“But with respect to those Muslim men with beards who are in Guantánamo, it would be less embarrassing to President Barack Obama if everyone would turn a blind eye to the injustice they face daily.”

Article 9.


“No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.”


“In light of this rule, the US prefer it if the world (and particularly the media) would ignore the fact that the men in Guantánamo have been arbitrarily detained and exiled for many years.”

Article 10.


“Everyone is entitled in full equality to a fair and public hearing by an independent and impartial tribunal, in the determination of his rights and obligations and of any criminal charge against him.”


“Still, hundreds of men shall be held beyond the law on an island prison for over a decade. None of these men shall be brought before an independent and impartial tribunal, since the dozen men charged will be put before what Lord Bingham has called a ‘kangaroo court’. These are the fortunate few. The others will never be charged at all.”

Article 11.


“Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.”


“Those held in Guantánamo are guilty until proven guilty, and are also guilty after proven innocent. It would be inconvenient to be as liberal as a medieval king, so we will not guarantee basic rights recognised since the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215.”

Article 12.


“No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation.”


“Surely the UN was kidding here? The authorities at Guantánamo Bay shall interfere with each detainee’s privacy, family, home and correspondence in every way possible. They will censor a young son’s correspondences to his father because it says, ‘I love you.’ They will degrade the detainees’ honour and reputation as much as possible, including watching them shower or use the toilet. They’ll insist on groping the detainees’ genitals in a ‘scrotum search’ any time they leave their cells.”

Article 13.


1.    “Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.”

2.    “Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.”


1.    “Guantánamo detainees shall occasionally have the right to freedom of movement within their cells. Should they leave their cells, they have the inalienable right to be shackled tightly.”

2.    “Guantánamo detainees can leave their cell to go to the small rec cage for two hours daily, although the authorities reserve the right to take detainees they don’t like there in the middle of the night.”

Article 14.


“Everyone has the right to seek and to enjoy in other countries asylum from persecution.”


“The only asylum we recognise for most of these detainees is the mental asylum they will end up in if we are allowed to continue abusing them.”

Article 15.


“No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality.”


“Shaker Aamer had better be told that he needs to be sent to Saudi Arabia because that is the only way to ensure that complicity by British intelligence agents in his torture never gets to a British court of law.”

Article 16.


“The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.”


“But this really must not be allowed with Guantánamo prisoners. While lots of delusional radicals like UK Prime Minister David Cameron seem to think Shaker should be reunited with his family in London, this shall be refused indefinitely. Guantánamo shall continue to tell him that he cannot be returned to Britain and can only live in Saudi Arabia without his family.”

Article 17.


1.    “Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others.”

2.    “No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.”


1.    “Guantánamo detainees do not have any right to property, including pictures of their children, family and legal correspondence, medical prescriptions, hygienic items, and even their own underwear.”

2.    “At every chance possible, Guantánamo guards shall raid and search detainees’ cells, taking everything they can. If the detainees irritate the guards with their peaceful hunger strikes, even the mats on which the men sleep should be taken, forcing the detainees to sleep on the bare concrete.”

Article 18.


“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.”


“It would be absurd for the world to think the US military is going to apply this to Guantánamo. Prayer time shall be interrupted regularly and other Islamic religious requirements shall be ignored or wilfully violated.”

Article 19.


“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”


“But we will censor every word that a detainee says, and every time his opinion is heard in the outside world, he shall be punished. In particular, Shaker Aamer shall be held in isolation most of the time, because he keeps on trying to express himself and this can be quite embarrassing to the military.”

Article 20.


“Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.”


“If the men in Guantánamo attempt to peacefully assemble, they shall be punished and placed in isolation (which should never be called that, because it looks bad, so let’s call it a ‘single cell operation’ or SCO). If the man who is trying to peacefully assemble is Shaker Aamer, he shall be FCE’d immediately and put back into his SCO. (FCE means a ‘Forcible Cell Extraction’, which covers up the fact that we’ll just beat him up.)”

Article 21.


1.    “Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives.”

2.    “Everyone has the right to equal access to public service in his country.”


“There’ll be no representation for the detainees. Detainees will not be allowed to go back to the country where they lived. Far better that they are allowed to gradually fall apart here in Cuba.”

Article 22.


“Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through national effort and international co-operation and in accordance with the organization and resources of each State, of the economic, social and cultural rights indispensable for his dignity and the free development of his personality.”


“BUT everyone at Guantánamo is ordered to mind his own business, or suffer the consequences. Okay, so we’ve wasted $5 billion of US taxpayers’ money on the place so far, and are currently spending $2.7 million every year per prisoner in Guantánamo, but we would not want this spent on anything constructive; better by far that their culture should be mocked as much as possible.”

Article 23.


“Everyone has the right to work.”


“The men in Guantánamo would like to work. After all, it’d be nice to have something to do. It’d be nice to earn a little money in order to buy clothing that fits, for example. But we can’t let that happen. These men are Muslims. We can’t trust them with the work programmes we provide in other prisons.”

Article 24.


“Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.”


“Sure, but not in Guantánamo. We’ll interrupt their sleep as much as we possibly can, sometimes even moving them from cell to cell to keep them awake. But, again, let’s not call this ‘sleep deprivation’; we’ll call it the ‘frequent flier programme’ as then maybe the media won’t work out what we’re doing.”

Article 25.


“Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services.”


“You’ve got to be kidding me if you think this kind of socialist ‘benefits programme’ is going to be in the DNHR. Medical care shall be denied to the maximum extent possible and doctors shall take their orders from the military. If a detainee is prescribed medication, these will be given out at random, on a whim. Detainees will routinely be given old, worn, and ill-fitting clothing (one of our favourite ways to irritate people is to give small-sized clothing to larger men).”

Article 26.


“Everyone has the right to education. Education shall be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental states.”


“The only education provided to Guantánamo detainees shall be regular lessons on doing precisely what they are told, when they are told to do it. Friendships between guards and detainees are strictly forbidden.”

Article 27.


1.    “Everyone has the right to freely participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.”

2.    “Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author.”


1.    “The authorities at Guantánamo will snatch the photos detainees’ children have taken for their fathers. When a father draws a picture for his children, to show his love from afar, this picture will be destroyed. Detainees have the right to always give up their works of art to the authorities.”

2.    “Books will be censored or not allowed in. For example, The Innocent Man by that little-heard of American author John Grisham, shall be banned.”

3.    “The detainees do have the inalienable right to be subjected to our experiments, both to assess the best way to break them during interrogation sessions, and to see what impact the involuntary and secretive use of drugs might have on them.”

Article 28.


“Everyone is entitled to a social and international order in which the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration can be fully realized.”


“Every man detained in Guantánamo is entitled to the prohibition of any rights set forth in the original UDHR, unless those rights have been reinterpreted in the Guantánamo Declaration of No Human Rights. If the men demand that the United Nations come to Guantánamo and enforce the UDHR, we can all be very sure it will not be permitted.”

Article 29.


1.    “Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible.”

2.    “In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society…”


“A Guantánamo detainee shall be duty bound to do precisely as he is told. His personality should be developed to ensure he expresses no personal opinion whatsoever, but becomes an automaton guided solely by the authoritarian will of the United States of America.”

About Shaker Aamer:

Shaker Aamer is a British resident whose wife and four children live in London. He says that it was while doing charity work building girls’ schools in Afghanistan that he was sold for a bounty to US forces and taken to Bagram Airbase. There, he reportedly witnessed torture before being rendered to Guantánamo. He has never been charged by the US with any crime, and has never received a trial. He was cleared to leave Guantánamo in 2007 by the Bush administration and in 2009 by the Obama administration, yet still he remains detained in the prison. Reprieve Case Here:

‘ IDF Storm and Arrest Palestinians in West Bank ‘

AceWorldNews – WEST BANK – September 28 – Israeli forces have raided a number of Palestinian homes in the occupied West Bank, arresting at least seven people.

' IDF Detain Seven Palestinians in West Bank '

‘ IDF Detain Seven Palestinians in West Bank ‘

The Palestinians were arrested after Israeli troops stormed their homes in the cities of Bethlehem, located about 10 kilometers (6 miles) south of al-Quds (Jerusalem), Husan and al-Khalil (Hebron), located 30 kilometers (19 miles) south of al-Quds, early on Sunday.

Local residents said the abductee’s were taken to an unknown location.

Five of the detainees are reportedly accused of throwing stones at Israeli military forces.

A Palestinian human rights organization says Israel is holding 540 Palestinians without trial, showing a sharp increase in the number of Palestinian arrestees over the past six years.

UAE: ‘ Trafficking Children as Child-Jockeys ‘

#AceNewsServices (SEA – Exclusive) – September 23 – Apparently, human beings have managed to assimilate the crabs’ ability to walk forth and back with equal ease. This is evident in many human activities, particularly in the field of human rights, where bigger steps backward often reverse smaller steps forward. The case of the camel child-jockeys in the Middle East is just one more clamorous example.

' Child Jokey's Trafficked as Bangladesh Slaves '

‘ Child Jokey’s Trafficked as Bangladesh Slaves ‘

Camel racing is an old Bedouin tradition in the Arab region, particularly in countries with large deserts. In recent decades, it has become a lucrative tourist attraction. Unlike the fights between gladiators and between men and lions in old Rome, and present-day dog-fights and cock-fights in the U.S. and China, as well as the bull-fights in Spain – all of which end with the death of one of the combatants – camel racing used to be a way of showing the tribesmen pride for possessing the best camels in the region.

Gradually, these races were transformed in a sort of organized business. This required more sophisticated preparations, such as the use of light-weight riders or jockeys. The human mind understood that young children appeared as the best option for the job. Human trafficking networks came to the rescue for provision of “supplying” the demands of this strenuous business.

Recruited by human traffickers with the promise of a better life, thousands of children were hijacked or bought from the poorest families in poor countries, such as Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sudan and then ‘exported’ to the Gulf countries, for their exploitation as camel-jockeys.

Part Two


Once trafficked into Gulf-States, children became totally dependent on their owners. Race organizers would go further – they would force those children to work hard without eating, to the very limit of starvation.

Perhaps one of the most comprehensive professional media reports on this issue is the one filed by Al Jazeera’s reporter Nicolas Haque on May 22 from Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Haque tells the story of a boy called Shameem Miah, who was just three years old when he travelled to the Gulf state of Dubai. “Lured by the promise of a better life, his family says they sold all of their land and belongings, even going into debt, in order to pay for the move,” Haque reports.

He goes on: “Shameem Miah is one of 879 Bangladeshi children who will receive compensation from the United Arab Emirates for years of suffering as child camel-jockey. The Bangladeshi authorities have received 1.43 million dollars from the UAE, which will be distributed among the families of former child-jockeys.” Commenting on the UAE’s decision to economically compensate the child victims of such practices and their families, Haque says “this is an unprecedented move to compensate child-jockeys for camel races”.

Haque then explains that a strong pressure from human rights groups led the UAE to ban the use of child-jockeys in 2005. Most had been trafficked from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sudan.

According to the report, Shameem’s father paid 4,500 dollars to migrant traffickers who had promised him gainful employment in the UAE. The traffickers had arranged for the children to work as well.

On arrival in Dubai, Shameem and his two brothers – then aged five and six – were separated from their parents to take part in camel races,” tells Haque. “A toddler, Shameem had only just learnt to walk when he was first seated upon a camel’s back.”

I used to be so scared of the camels, at the beginning, I would fall off the camels all the time,” Shameem says. His brother Muna says that Shameem was so small that he had to be strapped on to the camel, says the report, adding that the children’s “terrified screams drove the camels to race even faster, much to the satisfaction of the camel owners”.

Prized for their light-weight, the child-jockeys say they were intentionally starved, often going days without food, in order to keep them below 20 kilos, says the report.

The camel owners would weigh us and if we ate too much, they would give us electrical shocks. I was so scared of them, I remember, if I would lose a race they would beat me,” Shameem is quoted saying.

Haque reports that “to this day, Shameem bears the scars of five years of abuse by his employer, and countless falls”. Many other child-jockeys, however, have suffered much worse, sustaining life-long injuries from being trampled under the charging camels. Some are known to have died. “For five years Shameem and his brother lived and worked in a barbed wire encircled camp near the desert race track, where they often labored 18 hours a day for a payment of only four dollars a month,” Al Jazeera reporter says.


Even this tiny wage was of help to Shameem’s father, 45-year-old Abul Kashem Miah – many children were in effect sold into slavery and received nothing.  “For Shameem’s father, the situation was heartbreaking,” says Haque. “He deeply regrets that he could not prevent the use of his sons as camel jockeys, saying: ‘All I could think of was paying off our debt and getting out of poverty so that we could leave to go back to Bangladesh’.”

The report goes on to tell that at the age of eight, Shameem was discarded by his employer, deemed too old and heavy to race camels. But it’s clear that his experience of camel jockeying will remain with him forever,” says the report, “as he describes training with the camel every day, being fed just biscuits and water, allowed to sleep – only when completely exhausted – alongside the other children, directly on the sand.”

He says he rarely rode with a helmet and constantly burned his feet on the hot desert sand because he had not been given shoes.”

Haque informs that only 874 former child-jockeys will receive compensation despite the fact that many more are believed to have been trafficked. Most of those still awaiting payment are now teenagers.

The report also takes up the issue of missing children, saying that according to the UK-based human rights group, Anti-Slavery International, some 2,000 unaccounted for child camel jockeys have not yet returned to their families from the Gulf states.


Nevertheless, there is still the ugly face of some communities which have the luxury to see the children suffering and working to starve them so as to lose weight in order to win in these old Bedouin practices called camel races.

Despite curbing bans international pressure, child slaves still continue to be used as camel jockeys in many parts of UAE and Gulf States. The children are trafficked and sold or lent at low prices, to other countries.

The hugest obstacle is that the camel jockey races are held under the pretext of development and promotion of tourism.


A recent example being the camel-racing festival at Sweihan in Abu Dhabi, the photographs and videos released to the international media showed young children riding camels at this event that was also attended by dignitaries and uniformed police officers.

Observers from the UK-based Anti-Slavery International advocacy group also saw one child fall from a camel and narrowly escape being trampled on at the same race-rack. The presence of UAE authorities at the event is also disturbing as it indicates that even senior government officials are not taking child protection very seriously, despite the ban.


Over the years, many children and boys were simply handed back to the unscrupulous parents who sold them in the first place. expressed their grave concern about these practices. A large number of them get handed over to madrassas (religious schools) and orphanages funded and controlled by extremist groups.

Their repatriation has not necessarily led to their rehabilitation or reintegration back into society, in fact it’s an escape from one kind of hell to another.

The time has come to put an end to this barbaric, inhumane and appalling menace. Till that time nobody really knows how many more childhoods will be stolen – all for the pleasure of the rich-Arabs of Middle East, self-proclaimed followers of the true tradition of Islam.

World Food Programme: ‘ GAZA – For The First Time Since 2007 a Humanitarian Convoy of UN WPF Successfully Crossed from Egypt into the Gaza Strip Today ‘

#AceWorldNews – GAZA – August 27 – For the first time since 2007, a humanitarian convoy of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) successfully crossed from Egypt into the Gaza Strip today, carrying enough food to feed around 150,000 people for five days.

​’ Rafah Border Crossing Was Closed Now Open For Aid and Feeding People ‘

After a seven-hour drive from Alexandria – where the food was procured – across the Sinai Peninsula, WFP’s trucks arrived at the Rafah crossing. The convoy of 18 trucks carried 15,600 food parcels – part of a total batch of 25,000 food parcels. The parcels include ready-to-eat food such as canned meat, canned beans, tea and dates.

A second convoy with the remaining parcels is expected to cross into Gaza in the next few days.

​This is the first time that WFP has used the Rafah crossing point since the start of the Gaza blockade in 2007.

“It is extremely important that we have access to the Gaza Strip from different routes including the Rafah crossing to ensure a constant flow of humanitarian supplies to meet the growing needs of the people affected by the recent violence. We are grateful to the Government of Egypt for opening the Rafah crossing and allowing WFP to procure food in Egypt,” said Mohamed Diab, WFP Regional Director for the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia and East Europe.

To respond to the urgent need for humanitarian aid in Gaza, the UN in Palestine has activated the logistics cluster. Under the leadership of WFP, the cluster is in charge of coordinating the movement of humanitarian assistance into Gaza. The Egyptian Red Crescent is coordinating all the crossing of humanitarian goods through Rafah.

“The opening of the Rafah crossing for humanitarian aid provides a major opportunity to scale up aid delivery to Gaza and needs to be sustained,” says WFP Country Director Pablo Recalde. “WFP has provided emergency relief from the onset of the conflict and will continue its food deliveries to Gaza to reach people affected by the conflict”.

` UN Human Rights Chief Confirms over 9,000 Children Recruited as Child Soldiers in South Sudan’s War ‘

#AceWorldNews – SOUTH SUDAN – April 30 – Over 9,000 children have been recruited as soldiers in South Sudan’s four-month long civil war by both government and rebel forces, the UN’s human rights chief said on Wednesday.

“Children have also been killed during indiscriminate attacks on civilians by both sides,” AFP quoted UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay as saying.

The list of alarming statistics is long. Here are a few more: UNMISS unquestionably saved thousands of lives, when it opened the gates of several of its compounds to people fleeing deadly attacks.

Some 80,000 people are now sheltering in these compounds. UNICEF reports that more than 9,000 children have been recruited into armed forces by both sides. 32 schools have been taken over by military forces, and there have been more than 20 attacks on clinics and health centres.

Many women and girls have been raped, often brutally and sometimes by several fighters. Others have been abducted.

Children have also been killed during indiscriminate attacks on civilians by both sides.

` Britain must Immediately Refrain from Using Human Rights as a pretext for interfering in China's Internal Politics '

#AceWorldNews – BRITAIN – April 15 – (Reuters) – China on Tuesday condemned Britain for interfering in its domestic affairs, in response to a human rights report, a day after the British government said Beijing had called off human rights talks.

Britain listed China as “a country of concern” in its annual human rights report last week, saying it had observed increased curbs on freedom of expression, association and assembly in 2013.

It also cited reports of “the forcible suppression of ethnic unrest in Tibet and Xinjiang.”

China reacted by calling off talks with Britain on Beijing’s human rights record. Chinese and British officials had been due to hold a round of the two-way Human Rights Dialogue in London on Wednesday.

The two countries had agreed to resume the regular meetings during a trip to China by British Prime Minister David Cameron in December.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying accused Britain of issuing the report with “irresponsible remarks made about the Chinese political system, rudely slandering and criticising China’s human rights situation”.

Britain must immediately stop using human rights as a pretext for interfering in China’s internal politics and judicial sovereignty, Hua told a daily news briefing.

` Human Rights Council Resolution is ` Illegitimate ' and `Islamic Republic of Iran ' Considers the Approach Non-Constructive '

#AceWorldNews – TEHRAN – March 31 – Expressing regret over issuing a resolution against Iran at the UN Human Rights Council, Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman said approval of the resolution on Iran is based on dual standards and has political aims.

Marziyeh Afkham said that the move aims to create dispute between countries, impose special standards on others, and disrupt international human rights mechanism.

She stressed that Islamic Republic of Iran considers this approach non-constructive.

Afkham added that issuing such resolutions is ignoring Iranˈs positive steps in fulfilling its obligations and its constructive cooperation with international bodies and the improving trend of human rights in Iran.

Afkham continued that the resolution is following political interests and lacks legitimacy, adding that it is regretful that sponsors of the resolution are silent and indifferent about violation of human-rights of Palestinian people, and fate of innocent people, who are being taken hostage by terrorist groups and citizens who lose their lives on pretext of fight against terrorism.

The spokeswoman stressed that promotion of human rights is a global concern and no country is superior to others in such an important human responsibility and Iran has positive interaction with related international bodies and intends to make a dialogue and cooperate in a realistic way.

“For instance, while enumerating the violations of human-rights the resolution does not make any mentioning of violence on the part of paramilitaries that was described in the report in detail – mass executions, abductions of women and children, sexual violence, the use of children soldiers, mortar shelling of densely populated areas, as well as the terrorist acts committed by the groupings making up the Syrian Free Army and closely linked to the Islamic Front,” the ministry said.
