In an open letter published by The Guardian yesterday, 28 July, thirty British MPs from various British parties called for opening an official investigation into the death of Alia, who died in one of the UAE hospitals with her hands tied to the bed.
The MPs stressed that after one month of arresting Alia in 2015, her illness with cancer was discovered, however she did not receive the necessary medical care or appropriate treatment.
The letter pointed out that Alia was subjected to a number of serious violations in addition to medical negligence. She was attacked by prison guards and faced an unfair trial, which sentenced her to ten years imprisonment in 2017.
The letter confirmed that the UAE authorities ignored all international calls for her early release after the deterioration of her health, in order to be among her family when she dies. Alia died on 04 May 2019 in her place of detention, with her hands tied to the bed of the hospital.
AOHR UK confirms, after the investigation, that all the charges of terrorism against Alia are false and fabricated and that Alia has done her humanitarian duty towards the Syrians and made donations to children and women to help them survive during war.
AOHR UK supports the demands of the British MPs to open an investigation into the death of Alia, and the need to form an international commission to bring justice to Alia who suffered great injustice during her life.
