    THE SHAMEFUL ACTS OF THE MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS, THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA’

    June 02, 2017 New Delhi. [First Published In ‘Airlines India’]

    The Shameful Acts of The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), The Government of India

    ‘The Shameful Acts of The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), The Government of India’

    The case of the ‘JudgmentCreditor’, an Indian investor in the UAE, had already been fought at length, at three Courts in Abu Dhabi, UAE. All the three Courts including the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi had passed clear and concrete orders in the case, directing the authority to enforce the Judgments. To save face, the Executive of Abu Dhabi, fraudulently deported the ‘Judgment Creditor’ to India and leaving the guilty unpunished.

    This led to the Judgment Creditor’s character assassination, who was an investor with a group of business entities in UAE worth millions of investments, leaving him in a whirlpool of mental strain and physical trauma.

    The Delhi High Court heard the case of ‘Judgment Creditor’, and issued a ‘Mandamus Order’ to the Ministry of External Affairs, Government of India, to settle the case in 2 months with the UAE.

    At this juncture, all that was required from the Government of India was to take up the issue direct with the authorities of Abu Dhabi, to enforce the Judgments of the Supreme of Abu Dhabi, without further delay.

    Instead, Mr. N.U. Avirachan, Undersecretary, Ministry of External Affairs had sent this letter No.T-4113/3/96 to Mr Balasubramanian, Second Sef India (Cons), Embassy of Abu Dhabi, UAE, which was written without adhering to the provisions of law. It was this very letter by the Government of India which spoiled the settlement of the case of the Judgment Creditor.

    “Twenty one years of arbitrary detention in various forms by the UAE administration, denying fundamental rights and grossly offending the values of human dignity”.

    The UAE has so far failed to recognize and protect the rights to justice despite 4 consecutive judgments in absolute in favour of an Indian investor, the ‘Judgment Creditor’. He was denied dignity, respect, his freedom and access to his business assets spread over three establishments in Abu Dhabi, UAE from 1995. All that pending is the ‘execution of those Judgements, solely due to the inhuman approach of the concerned authorities representing both India and UAE.

    The State practice of International Law in India is purely based on vote-bank politics. No justification can exist for ignoring such an extreme violations of Human Rights. ‘Full Text’

    Observe the ‘Republic Day of India 2017′ as ‘Black Day’ in Protest Against the Decision of the Government of India to Invite the ‘Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi’ as the Chief Guest of the Day!wilful-defaulters-uae

    An Open Appeal to all Indians on the Occasion of the 68th Anniversary of India’s Republic Day 2017!

    If We Really Stand For The Independent India, The Values of Democracy and Respect For Human Rights: “Observe The Republic Day of India 2017 As ‘Black Day’, on the following Crystal Clear Reasons:-

    Abu Dhabi crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is invited to be the chief guest of India’s Republic Day 2017. To add fuel to the fire the “UAE Army has also been invited to participate in the Republic Day Parade 2017″ during which the chief guest will be the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.

    Mohammed Bin Zayed represents the UAE as the de facto ruler of UAE Federation. UAE is attributed to authoritarian regime with blood-stained hands, lacks accountability and total lack of judicial independence. Any one who dares to criticize the regime risk arrest, torture, arbitrary detentions and enforced disappearance.

    The Army in question was trained by the notorious company once known as ‘BlackWater’, and recruited foreign mercenaries, originally intended to butcher their citizens who claim for democracy. The UAE is a member of Saudi-led ‘anti-terror’ coalition on which the Pakistani army chief [retired] Gen Raheel Sharif is the head.

    The UAE and its army both have proved by meddling its neighbouring countries that the victory of the people against any repressive regime in the Arab world is more dangerous than defeat!

    ENFORCEMENT OF LANDMARK UAE JUDGMENTS – ‘JABIR CASE’

    Most importantly, there’s no respect for even the Judgments of the Supreme Court of that country. The UAE Federation is the worst wilful defaulter of the 4 consecutive Judgments passed against them by the Courts of Abu Dhabi in the most shocking and gruesome case of an Indian investor’. During the course of hearing the wrong-doers pleaded guilty ‘of their framing a false case against the Indian investor’ to withdraw a civil lawsuit of a building contract.

    The Court of First Instance in Abu Dhabi, UAE, had specifically ordered investigation against their corrupt and conniving officials who looted money and valuables from the office of Indian investor. The Full Bench of the Apex Court unanimously upheld the findings, precisely in line with the Lower Courts’ Judgments.

    The UAE Federation did not comply with the Judicial directives of the Courts of Abu Dhabi. Instead, the Federation deliberately and maliciously deported him, the ‘Judgment Creditor’, from the UAE, denying him access even to his business assets spread over three establishments in Abu Dhabi, UAE, were worth One Hundred Million US Dollars in 1995.

    This resulted his character assassination, leaving him in a whirl-pool of unimaginable mental trauma and thus the UAE Federation is accountable for its violation of Judicial decisions at first place.

    His claims against UAE were recognized by both the Supreme Court and the High Court of Delhi and ordered the Government of India to settle the case in two months, way back in 1997! All that is pending is the ‘execution of those Judgements, solely due to the inhuman approach of the concerned authorities representing both India and UAE.

    A vicarious liability exists under general law. The violation of a specific directive of a Court of Law, renders the Abu Dhabi, UAE Federation, as a ‘Wilful Defaulter’, liable for the compensation due to the Petitioner, the ‘Judgment Creditor’.

    Under the above grave backgrounds, the Abu Dhabi crown prince cannot be made in a list of the distinguished chief guests of India’s Republic Day Celebrations. The Republic Day of India commemorates the date January 26, 1950, on which the Constitution of India came into force.

    Indians celebrated Republic Day all these years to strengthen the dynamics of a democratic values and to honour India’s great men and women who had sacrificed all the way. We were quite fair so far, when we had distinguished personalities like Obama, Hollande etc., as our Chief Guests on our Republic Day ceremonies in the past.

    The ‘Judgment Creditor’ is therefore soliciting your wholehearted support in his unique case to get Justice, in a portfolio of Landmark Judgments passed in absolute in his favour, by the highest Judiciary of Abu Dhabi and subsequent Judgments from Delhi High Court in the case, the benefits of which have been denied to him arbitrarily and inhumanly over an unduly long period of two decades, defeating all his relentless fight.

    The ‘Judgment Creditor’ wishes to observe India’s Republic Day 2017 as a Black Day, in Protest Against the Non-enforcement of Legal Judgments” by both the Governments, the Government of UAE and the Government of India!

    He requests all Indians to join him in his protest against the decision of the Government of India with all supports to him.

    'Judgment Creditor's Booklet to Enforce the UAE Judgment Debts'

    “The enforcement of UAE Judgment is stressful but ultimately very rewarding”!

    The ‘Judgment Creditor’ Unveils Country’s First Judgment Equity Funds: A Portfolio of UAE Judgments worth multi-billion US$ Dollars now on sale in equities. The Judgment Debtor is the State of UAE whose Ruler at the time was none other than the late ‘Sheikh Zayed himself, the Emir of Abu Dhabi and absolute Ruler of the United Arab Emirates (UAE)’, and the assurance of gains is based on this very threshold!

    The ‘Decree Holder’, who was put to suffer physical, emotional and financial harm as a direct result of heinous crimes committed by the ‘Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi’, UAE, despite repeated ‘Decrees’ of the Highest Courts, now selling the Portfolios of UAE Debts. You can be the ‘Holder of Decree’ or a Creditor representing the ‘Decree holder’ (Judgment Creditor), at your place. “Avail this unique opportunity to secure your profit which jumps 5 to 10-folds and, simultaneously, become a ‘volunteer’ for the principles of Equity and Social Justice”.

    “SPECIAL ‘ANNIVERSARY OFFERS’ FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY”
    The UAE Judgment Equities (UAE Debts) has been guaranteed five times more value
    on your investments even if the ‘Debtors’ settle it within the first week of your joining!

    The enforcement of UAE Judgment is stressful but ultimately very rewarding!

    [“A creditor is worse than a slave-owner,” Victor Hugo once wrote. “For the master only owns your person, but a creditor owns your dignity, and can command it."]
    There are diabolical debtors who hide Judicial decisions, commit fraud or other heinous acts to avoid honouring their obligations under the judgments. The enforcement process, therefore, becomes time consuming, expensive and stressful. Whatever the reason may be, the UAE Judgment debtor(s) will stand as the fiscally responsible party until the Court Judgment is satisfied. His responsibility to do so will pass on to his successor-in-office; the successor regime is obliged to compensate the victim of state wrongs.

    In the instant case, the ‘Defaulter-Judgment debtor(s)’ can be legally proceeded against. Besides, the Judgment Creditor is entitled to ‘Mortgage’ his Judgment; the Debtor’s assets could be seized and sold to satisfy the debts. The Judgment Creditor is also legally eligible to transfer his Judgment, part or whole.

    Feedback: “We are shocked at the incredible extent of inhuman cruelty against which the whole world should wake up. Your account should get wider publicity, so that larger number of people would become aware of such denial human rights”. … ‘Full Text’

    HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A CASE LIKE THIS?

    A true story of ‘outright fraud’ perpetrated by a wealthiest ruling regime of the world, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
    Getting a Judgment in a civil lawsuit means the ‘Decree holder’ is then entitled to recover the money and damages from the debtor. But in this unique and historic case that arose in Abu Dhabi, the ‘Emirati debtor’ , who took it as a revenge, trespassed into the office of the ‘Decree holder’ along with his accomplice, a ‘Policeman’ in plain clothes, who held a heavy iron rod of one meter length in one hand and on the other hand a chained handcuff; with which the Decree holder was beaten up in cold blood and a well-planned looting and extortion was forced up on.

    The policeman forcibly broke open the office locker with the iron rod in his hand and looted US$.4m worth money and valuables. The Decree holder locked the door and called the police for protection. The police did come, but instead of protecting him from the trespassers, they joined hands with them and the Decree holder was attacked further, shackled, brutally tortured and was literally dragged out of his office and taken to secret ‘detention centre’ . The Decree Holder who was the ‘complainant’ in the civil lawsuit in a ‘Real Estate Deal’ of a nine storeyed building against the said ‘Emirati debtor’, involving above USD 3,00,000.00 Per Annum (INR 2 Crores), way back in the year 1995, had been blackmailed, treated as a ‘criminal’ and was beaten near-death.

    The ‘Decree holder’ became unconscious and soon thereafter he was taken to hospital-emergency, Abu Dhabi. He was subjected to the greatest ordeals by being taken from hospital to an ‘underground lock-up’ and kept incommunicado in solitary confinement. The victim was later taken to central prison at Al Wathba, Abu Dhabi. It took a long period of six months for the person to have his first appearance in the Court. The victim was implicated for ‘using force against Government employee and assault’.

    The criminal court found that the case was fully false and fabricated, therefore, the Court ordered the Prosecution to investigate the crime committed by the policemen and the local. Instead, the Prosecution went to appeal. When the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi, comprising a three-judge panel, ordered the immediate release of the victim from prison, all of them dropped the charges they had deliberately made against the victim, the ‘Decree holder’.

    The Court ordered the state authority to prosecute both the policemen and the local Emirati and to restore the victim’s dignity and to compensate him for all his losses. “The Court, the three-judge supreme bench, praised the appropriate conduct and courage of the victim in their ‘Landmark Judgment’ and concluded that the victim is innocent; rather ‘a martyr.

    Even though the Juries in different Courts of Abu Dhabi, had taken a series of decisions in this case, in absolute terms in favour of the victim, strangely enough, none of those Court Orders were executed by the UAE authority. Instead of rightly accepting the blame for the gross misconduct of their Policemen and also the Prosecution, the ‘State authority issued an ‘extremely fraudulent order’ to expel the ‘Decree holder’ from their country, as if he had been punished for a crime. The ‘Decree holder’, the then holder of ‘four consecutive Judgments’ in absolute terms in his favour, therefore, was deported from the UAE, that too at highest risk of being multiplied victimization.

    ‘Such a punishable fraud of misrepresenting the facts perpetrated by the UAE authority, for deporting the ‘Judgment Creditor’, who was an Indian investor with ‘three valid trade licenses’ of well established and profitable ‘General Contracting and Trading Firms’ under his full ownership in Abu Dhabi’ (The assets of which were valued a minimum One Hundred Million US$ Dollars at the time of his mishap in Abu Dhabi), resulting in total destruction of his life, his businesses and his profession, adds inescapable burden on the ‘Wilful Defaulters’ of Abu Dhabi, UAE.

    Back in India, consequent on the gravest cruelties and injustices meted out to him in Abu Dhabi, UAE, it was the primary duty of the ‘Government of India’ to protect the ‘Judgment Creditor’, his dignity and justice; and to help the victims of many other forms in a similar situation in that country. Unfortunately, this historic case of a Non-resident Indian-investor had been buried in the darkness for two decades by the Indian authorities, despite repeated representations and two specific Judgments from Delhi High Court in 1997 & 2007 respectively which were filed by the ‘Judgment Creditor’ as directed by the Supreme Court of India.

    It was the statutory obligation of Government of India to take all necessary measures as instructed by the High Court of Delhi as early in the year of 1997 in order to enforce the valid Legal Judgments, passed by the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, UAE. “The subject who has suffered the injury is not the individual person but the State itself”; as explained by ‘Professor Theo van Boven’ (1934-1983).

    The sending state, Government of India, is solely responsible for the act or omission that violates the ‘Vienna Convention on Consular Relations (VCCR) 1963’ particularly Article 5, enforced from 19-3-1967.

    “The foreign State, UAE, was bound to provide appropriate reliefs to the ‘Judgment Creditor’, whose ‘Constitutional Rights’ have been blatantly violated in the first place by Abu Dhabi police to extort money and valuables.

    The UAE authorities were further bound to provide proper remedies for the repeated victimizations which the ‘Judgment Creditor’ was forced to suffer as a consequence of the unique and the most barbaric, ‘fraudulent misrepresentation’ perpetrated by the executive branch to ‘deport’ him from that country. It has resulted in the colossal losses of billions of US$ Dollars to the Judgment Creditor’s various business institutions in the UAE, apart from the consequences of his physical and psychological trauma, the emotional pain and ‘sufferings’ which forced him to live a lost life for all the years that followed”.

    ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’

    The accumulated ‘case histories of injustices’ received by the ‘Overseas Indians’ Legal Cell (Est.1996)’ from different quarters of Arab Gulf, forced the ‘Judgment Creditor’ to endeavour towards formulation and implementation of the ‘Mutual Human Rights Law and Reparation Mechanisms’ between the Government of India and the Gulf (Gulf Cooperation Council – GCC) countries, mandating our elected representatives and officials to effectively intervene in eliminating discrimination and imbalances of ‘Indian Diaspora’ working in different countries.

    The enforcement of Judgments and legal remedies is a fundamental element of the rule of law which is an integral part of ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation’ Movement; this also involves the recognition and protection of the dignity of individuals. The mandate of the UN General Assembly resolution ‘A/RES/60/147’ reads the ‘States should ensure that their domestic law is consistent with their international legal obligations’.

    The regional inter-Governmental Human Rights Mechanisms of ‘American States’ signed with its neighbouring countries in 1948, the ‘Council of Europe’ adopted it in 1950, and the similar ‘Charter in Africa’ adopted in 1987, are prominent illustrations of the expanding vistas of Human Rights. This constitutional approach basically protects them from all forms of exploitation and social injustices from foreign States even outside the Charter.

    It’s a ‘shameful fact’ that similar arrangements haven’t even been conceived yet by the Government of India. As a result, the Indian expatriates are exposed to the extreme degree of Human Rights Violations in the Arab Gulf. Once the ‘Charter’ is implemented, millions of ‘Indian Diaspora’ and their families will be the primary beneficiaries of ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’ .

    The preface of ‘Indo-Gulf Reparations’ Booklet’ was written by the late ‘Hon’ble Mr. Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer’ (a renowned Jurist and former Judge of the Supreme Court of India), and the covering letter was written by ‘Mr. K. Sukumaran’ , a former Judge of the High Courts of Kerala and Bombay, who pleaded for the ‘Judgment Creditor’ before the Supreme Court and the High Court of Delhi. Link: ‘Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanisms’ .

    HERE WE TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT’S THE LEGAL POINTS OF INTEREST:

    “The Doctrine of State Immunity”

    In a landmark case, the ‘secret’ wife of the late King of Saudi Arabia has won the right to sue his son and Saudi prince for breaching a contract. The king’s son, argued he had “state immunity” and the court had no jurisdiction to try Mrs Harb’s claim. But Mrs Justice Rose, the High Court of England and Wales, threw out the prince’s argument, confirming that personal immunity ceases when a head of State is no longer in office for any reason. Link: ‘U.K. High Court Judgment’

    “Decree Holders Entitled to Enjoy Fruits of the Decree Expeditiously” -
    Says Supreme Court of India !

    A three-judge bench of the Supreme Court of India has observed that Decree Holders must enjoy the fruits of the decree obtained by them in an expeditious manner. The Bench, speaking through Justice Dave, has noted the unscrupulous tactics used by Judgment Debtors to evade the process of law and eventually frustrate the entire efforts of a Decree Holder in getting the decree executed. Link: ‘Supreme Court Judgment’

    “How does fraud affect a victim? ‘The impact of fraud on victims’ -
    Supreme Court of India

    The term “Fraud” has been clearly analyzed and adjudged by the highest Judiciary of India. The Supreme Court reiterated that ‘fraud vitiates all’ and also the age old saying ‘Fraud avoids all judicial acts ecclesiastical or temporal’. Fraud is an act of deliberate deception with a design to secure something, which is otherwise not due. The expression “fraud” involves two elements, deceit and injury to the person deceived. It is a cheating intended to get an advantage. Link: ‘Supreme Court Judgment’

    Ever heard of a victim marking and celebrating the 20th anniversary of the gravest disaster in his life? It’s the tragic drama of the ‘Judgment Creditor’, in real life. He is not celebrating it with cheers, but with agonizing memories of the nightmare of the disaster which shattered all his fortunes and pushed him to a state of complete derailment of his enviable physical, mental, financial and social well-being; and made him to live a lost life for all the years that followed.

    Regrettably, the credit goes to ‘the Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi’, who set ablaze the destruction, by issuing an extremely “Fraudulent Misrepresentation” to deport the ‘Judgment Creditor’ from that country. Fraudulent misrepresentation occurs when one makes representation with intent to deceive and with the knowledge that it is false; allows for a remedy of damages and rescission. Had the judicious judgment of the Apex Court of Abu Dhabi in absolute terms in favour of the Judgment Creditor been executed in time, his agonies could have been abated two decades back!.

    The apparent inaction by ‘the Government of India’, despite the specific directives and orders of the Delhi High Court, and the serious failures and inadequacies to comply with statutory obligations on the part of ‘the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA)’ has also to be blamed in this regard.

    The victim, the ‘Judgment Creditor’ was an investor in Abu Dhabi, his ‘Business Assets’, contracting and trading firms, stood valued at a minimum of One Hundred Million U.S. Dollars when the dreadful tragedy took place at the prime of his life. The ‘Judgment Creditor’ is forced to mark this twentieth anniversary of ‘Looting and Extortion’ by the Abu Dhabi police, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), due to the Non-execution of the country’s ‘Landmark Judgments’.

    Read the shocking story of police looting, the bizarre twist in the case of police extortion in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (U.A.E)

    “Shop burgled by Abu Dhabi police in plain clothes, US$ .4m worth money and valuables looted” – a real-life story:
    Abu Dhabi, UAE; Thursday 26th October, 1995

    The expatriates being robbed of their wealth and valuables and exploited by local people pretending to be cops is not at all sensational news in the UAE. But in this true incident under report which took place on Thursday, 26th October, 1995 the policeman who played the lead role in looting was ‘a real police officer who was working in Abu Dhabi police department’.

    The victim, in the incident was a high earning engineering expert and investor, deeply committed to his profession with his three major business establishments including ‘Engineering, Contracting and Trading’ in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

    A brief background of the story
    On behalf of his principal company, the ‘Premier General Contracting Establishment’, the contractor had signed a business contract with an Emirati, ‘Mr Hassan Saeed Hassan’, covering a Nine Storied Building proposed to be leased out for a sum of 10,80,000.00 UAE Dirhams (AED 1.08million) Per Annum.

    When a dispute arose with Mr Hassan Saeed, the contractor, on the basis of legal advice, instituted a Civil Suit in Abu Dhabi Court for settling the issue. The ill-intention of the local was that, he wanted to cancel the lease deed when the restoration of entire building was over. The conspiracy on the part of Hassan Saeed, to avoid paying debts was one of the important and thrusting points in the civil suit.

    The Honourable Judge of the Civil Court took a decision in favour of the contractor. Consequently, Hassan Saeed got annoyed and insisted the contractor to withdraw the lawsuit unilaterally.

    Scene 1.
    Ahmed Abdulla Abdul Khadir, a policeman in plain clothes from Abu Dhabi police (who haven’t been disclosed his identity), along with Hassan Saeed Hassan (the Emirati, accused in the civil case, who has already been warned by the Civil Court against his wrongful motives) came to the contractor’s office.

    The policeman in plain clothes, who had come prepared and was shouting and rotating an iron rod of one meter length in one hand; and on the other, a chained handcuff. Hassan Saeed was walking close to him. They have entered the first floor of the office where the contractor was alone at the time.

    The policeman enquired about the original documents of the building contract and job orders between Hassan Saeed and the contractor which the contractor refused to disclose.

    Scene 2.
    The contractor was threatened with dire consequences unless he withdrew the lawsuit. The contractor was not willing to yield to such illegal and unjust demand, which amounted to extortion.

    There upon, the contractor was subjected to the most inhuman treatment with painful physical injuries and otherwise.

    They wanted to grab and destroy the related documents of the contract from him by force because an ‘Interim Order’ of the Court was against Hassan Saeed. In this attempt, the entire office was ransacked, drawers opened, files thrown.

    The telephone connection in the office was snapped. The policeman in civil dress beat the contractor harshly with a chained handcuff; the chain was rounded on victim’s neck and pulled around. He paid no heed to the humble requests of the victim.

    The policeman forcefully broke open the office locker with the heavy iron rod in his hand. At this juncture, some of the cash, worth above AED 3,50,000 which was kept for the distribution of wages for employees was found by them.

    Scene 3.
    So much of money! The policeman’s eyes bulged out in wonder. He looked at his Emirati friend as if he never expected there’s such a large amount of money. The currency blurred their eyes. All in a hurry, both of them grabbed the bunches of currency, and hurriedly stuffed into their pockets. In their hurry and perplexity, part of the currencies spilled over the floor of the cabin.

    In the meantime, the contractor’s younger brother arrived at the office with lunch. As he arrived the contractor asked him “to close the door and call the police”. The policeman in plain clothes managed to get out of the office with the stolen money and bundled documents.

    The Emirati too tried to escape from the office of the contractor, with his hands and pockets full, protruding with the stolen money and valuables; however, he was unable to leave.

    Scene 4.
    The Policeman in civil dress was standing outside the office which remained closed. A crowd had gathered around the office. He was holding an iron rod of one meter length in his hand with which he was hitting the door of the office and warning any one from coming near the office and was shouting Indian, Pakistani, Bangali all are thieves and procurers.

    At this point of time police patrol team arrived at the spot. They were, in fact, allies of the intruders. This batch of policemen who came responding to the alert of the contractor, immediately hit the contractor and his brother. Their faces had reflections of triumph and cruelty. They were like ferocious animals, beaten both the victims brutally, almost near to death. Then they handcuffed them behind their backs and dragged them out of the office, on through the street, and kicked them into the police car. All these brutal torture and humiliations were happening in front of a large crowd.

    The frightening deadly torture continued with shocking brutality throughout the journey as well as in a detention centre and subsequently getting admitted as an unconscious victim to the hospital emergency, Abu Dhabi.

    Scene 5. (UAE Torture)
    Here is a narration of the haunting memories and the cruel and inhuman torture suffered by the victim, in his own painful words:

    “There were four persons present (in plain clothes) when they tortured me in an underground detention centre. I was forced to lay down on the floor by them. My face was close to the floor and my hands still cuffed behind my back. They took out their Arabic turban and rolled it on my entire head and left me to suffocate; then started hitting and kicking on my head with their legs. And then they tried to pull-out my injured finger nails with a plier type nail clipper. Due to this cruel and painful torture, my finger nail were entirely torn apart”. (Full Text: UAE Police Torture’)

    [The above narration is not exhaustive but only a pointer to untold miseries, losses, sufferings; the haunting memories of the ‘cruel and inhuman torture’ and social humiliation suffered by the victim; the ‘Judgment Creditor’. He had to undergo extremes of inhuman and deadly tortures from Abu Dhabi Police which no human being could withstand. However, he was spared from death.

    Judgments & Orders:

    The Legal Court of First Instance of Abu Dhabi :-
    It took six months thereafter, for the contractor to have his first appearance in Court. The ‘Duty and Responsibility’ of the authority to protect a Judgment Creditor against the threats of violence was left unattended. The victim was framed a false case, alleging “Using force against Government employee and assault”.

    The Legal Court of First Instance of Abu Dhabi found that the victim was innocent, the case (NO. 152/1996) was wholly false, baseless and that it was fabricated by both the plaintiffs, Hassan Saeed Hassan and Ahmed Abdulla Abdul Khadir, the policeman. The Court found that, the Prosecutor was guilty of proceeding against the contractor, who in fact, was a victim of police brutality. The Court acquitted the contractor [and his brother as well] of all the charges levelled against them and directed the authorities to investigate the violent crimes committed by the Policemen and the Landlord such as trespassing, physical aggression, looting etc. (Judgment First Instance 152/1996 dated 10/4/1996)

    [The 'Judgment of the Legal Court of First Instance' has never been executed or investigated; instead the authorities were trying their best to hide the shameful act of the police. The prosecution taken-up the case to the Apex Court, the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, UAE].

    The Apex Court of Abu Dhabi:-
    The case came up before the Apex Court, comprising the three-judge panel. The prosecution found to be grossly negligent and blamed for its criminal involvement in the case. The contractor was granted bail on the filing of the appeal. However, despite the bail and sureties he was not released from the prison.

    During the next hearing, the Policeman dropped his claim from his complaint with a declaration attested by the Notary Public. The landlord, Hassan Saeed followed the suit and admitted his guiltiness. The judges threw out all those papers and had cautioned them of the serious nature of their crime which calls for long term of imprisonment apart from financial penalties and confiscations.

    “The Court praised the properness of the behaviour and courage of the victim and concluded that the victim is innocent; rather ‘a martyr. The appellate review highlighted the culpability of the policeman and emphasized the notoriety of his actions and violations of person’s rights. “It further reiterated the condemnation of prosecutor”. The Court ordered immediate release of the victim, ‘restoration’ of victim’s dignity, respect and reminded about the roles and responsibilities of authority towards the victim for reparation for the losses he suffered while pronouncing a ‘Landmark Judgment’.

    An excerpt from the Judgment reads as follows:-
    “Verily the Islamic Law and the entire Positive Laws have honoured Man and protected his freedom, his honour, his property and his soul. Hence, if a man was killed, while protecting these, he is considered to be a martyr. And limitation of his freedom without any rights is an unforgiving crime and the same is mentioned in the provisions of articles 2 and 3 of the Penal Procedures Code. And it is proved in this case that the policeman along with the plaintiff went to arrest the accused and to limitate his freedom….” (Apex Court Judgment 188/1996 dated 19/5/1996).

    “FRAUDULENT MISREPRESENTATION” – A DIRTY GAME OF THE ‘WILFUL DEFAULTERS’, THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH OF ABU DHABI, UAE!
    Instead of honouring the Judgments of the Legal Court of First Instance and the Apex Court, the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, and restoring the dignity and respect of the victim as directed therein, ‘the UAE Administration’ chose to deport the victim with “Fraudulent Misrepresentation” of truthful facts, by repeating the same false charge, that a tricky policeman had framed against the Judgment Creditor to blackmail him, (which had been dismissed later on finding it to be false by both the Courts of that country). By quoting the very same false charge to deport the Judgment Creditor (who was also a victim of police brutality), the Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi has not only tarnished the image of UAE in indelible ink; but also made a mockery of the entire Judiciary of that country.

    THE SCENARIO BACK HOME, IN INDIA
    And back in India, what action was taken by the Government of India?
    “Nothing, except a cruel and deliberate betrayal over the past two decades”.

    In India, the ‘Legal fight for Justice’ took in very many proceedings before the Supreme Court of India and the High Court of Delhi. Unfortunately, India has not made any diplomatic efforts or given any respect to the orders of Delhi High Court in 1997 and 2007.

    The concurring Judgments against Abu Dhabi police from the Highest Court of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and the ‘Concealment of the Judicial Decisions’ by the administration of that country, and to deport the ‘Judgment Creditor’, were un-challengeable F.I.R. against the Executive Branch of Abu Dhabi, who was duty-bound to compensate the victim in every respect for his physical and mental injury, illegal imprisonment and ill-health due to the near-to-death torture by policemen. In contrast there to, the illegal deportation resulted in the absolute loss of his various ‘Business Establishments’, and he was forced to live a lost life for all the years that followed.

    AWAIT RELEASE!
    “25 Smart Reasons to take the ‘UAE Judgment Execution Case’ to the International Court of Justice (ICJ)
    The Government of India is duty bound to take all necessary measures to enforce the Judgments passed by the Supreme Court of Abu Dhabi, including approaching the International Court of Justice (ICJ) for the settlement of this unique and the most barbaric action perpetrated by the head of a civilized nation, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, that caused ‘Multi-billion Dollars’ worth of damages to the Judgment Creditor’s business establishments. The ‘Laws Governing the International Community’ do require compliance by the Executive Government, in full measure, with the verdict of the Judiciary; this requirement of law was breached by the UAE Government.

  • The War on Yemen: Where Oil and Geopolitics Mix

    The War on Yemen: Where Oil and Geopolitics Mix
    Posted by: Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya   Publication: RT Op-Edge   April 09, 2015

    Everything about the war on Yemen is a smokescreen. Concealed behind the smoke is a tale of geopolitics and petro-politics that aims to control the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden.

    The House of Saud and a military coalition that consists mostly of anachronistic monarchies are claiming to bomb Yemen as a means of saving the Yemenite people and their transition to democracy. The irony should not be lost on observers that recognize that the Saudi-led coalition — consisting of the Kingdom of Morocco, UAE, Kuwait, Kingdom of Bahrain, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Qatar, Pakistan, Egypt, Sudan, and Saudi Arabia itself — is comprised of an unhealthy mixture of backward family dictatorships and corrupt governments that essentially are the antithesis of democracy.

    Just as important to note, the Saudi-led war on Yemen is a criminal act. The military attack on Yemen was not authorized by the UN Security Council. Nor can the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia justify its bombing campaign under Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, because Yemen and Ansarullah (the Houthi movement) pose no threat of war to Riyadh and never had any intentions of igniting a war in the Arabian Peninsula. This is why the Kingdom’s war on Yemen is categorically a violation of the Charter of the UN and international law.

    The Houthis never wanted to aggravate Saudi Arabia let alone start a war against the Kingdom. Days before the Saudi-led war on Yemen, the Houthis had stealthily sent a delegation to Riyadh to establish an understanding with the Saudis and to calm them down.

    Instead of opposing the illegal war on Yemen, Washington and its allies, including Britain, have thrown their political support behind the bombing of Yemen by the malfeasant Royal Saudi Air Force, which has committed war crime by intentionally bombing civilian infrastructure, including refugee camps and children’s schools.

    It is no coincidence that most of the victims in Yemen are civilians. This is part of a Saudi strategy of establishing rapid military dominance, which is colloquially called “shock and awe.” Ring any bells? This is a strategy taken right out of Uncle Sam’s playbook that intends to demoralize resistance and scare the opponent into surrendering.

    Pentagon’s not-so-hidden bloody hands

    Not eager to reveal their roles in another illegal war on another sovereign country, the US and undoubtedly several of its NATO allies have decided to keep low profiles in the attack on Yemen. This is why Washington has opted to publicly present itself as only providing logistical and intelligence support to the Saudis for the war on Yemen.

    The war on Yemen, however, would not be possible without the US. Not only have countries like the US and Britain provided military hardware to Saudi Arabia, but they are providing it with bombs for the attack, refueling its warplanes, providing intelligence, and giving the Kingdom logistical support.

    Does this sound like non-involvement? Can the US really be considered a non-combatant in the war?

    History — and very recent history at that too — is repeating itself in Yemen.

    Observers should recall how Washington deceptively claimed that it did not want to go to war with the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya in 2011. The US publicly let the British and French take the lead in the NATO war on Tripoli while the Pentagon was actually the main force behind the war. US President Barack Obama called this a strategy of leading from behind.”

     The US strategy in Yemen is not too different from that of the  NATO war on Libya. It is another case of cloak and dagger where  the US does not want to be seen pulling the strings behind the  aggression and violation of international law.

    The Saudis would never have dared attack Yemen without  Washington’s green light or help. The Pentagon is even selecting  the bombing targets in Yemen for the Kingdom. “American  military planners are using live intelligence feeds from  surveillance flights over Yemen to help Saudi Arabia decide what  and where to bomb,” the Wall Street Journal casually   reported when the war began. National  Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan, even stated that  the US had established a  joint planning cell with Saudi Arabia to coordinate the  attack on Yemen.

      This is why it should not come as a surprise that Saudi Arabia  used Washington as the platform to announce the launching of its  war on Yemen. The Associated Press even noticed the weird podium  that the Kingdom had selected. “In an unusual tableau, Saudi  Arabia’s ambassador to the United States announced the rare  military operation by his country at a Washington news conference  about a   half-hour after the bombing began,” the Associated Press  reported on March 25.

    Double standards: Remember EuroMaidan in Ukraine?

      One ugly double-standard after another ugly double-standard  sticks out. While the House of Saud argued that it has intervened  militarily in Yemen to restore Abd-Rabbuh Manṣour Al-Hadi, who  Riyadh claims is the legitimate president of Yemen, it has pushed  for a war on Syria and worked with the US to topple Bashar  Assad’s government.

      Washington’s reaction is even more lopsided. When EuroMaidan was  underway in Kiev and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich was  forced to flee in 2014, the US and its allies claimed that  Yanukovich had lost all legitimacy because he fled Ukraine. Even  as recently as February 2015, US officials have maintained this  argument. “Well, let’s all refresh ourselves on the facts  here. President — former President Yanukovich abdicated his  responsibilities by fleeing Kiev during a political crisis,”   the US Department of State’s spokesperson, Jennifer Psaki,   told reporters during a press briefing.

      Well Mr. Al-Hadi also fled his country. Nevertheless, the same  measuring stick that was used in Ukraine is not applied to assess  Al-Hadi’s legitimacy. Unlike its position on Ukraine, Washington  claims that Al-Hadi is still the legitimate leader of Yemen.

      The US is even willing to put aside its differences and work with  Sudan, which the US Department of  State claims is a state sponsor of terrorism, to bomb Yemen  into accepting Al-Hadi back.

      The basis for all of these contradictory positions is really a  marker of US interests and Machiavellianism. It has nothing to do  with legitimacy, democracy, or human rights.

      Al-Hadi’s (il)legitimacy

      While there some parallels between the two, there are key  differences between Ukraine and Yemen. These key differences set  Yanukovich and Al-Hadi apart and are what made Yanukovich  legitimate and Al-Hadi illegitimate.

      Firstly, unlike President Yanukovich, Al-Hadi resigned from  office. For arguments sake, however, we will not dwell on this.  There are much more important points for evaluating Al-Hadi’s  legitimacy.

      Unlike Yanukovich, Al-Hadi’s term had actually expired. While  President Yanukovich was elected into office by the Ukrainian  people for his term, President Al-Hadi’s term was extended  through an administrative process. To quote Reuters: “Yemen’s political factions  extended the president’s term by a year” on January 21,  2014. Al-Hadi was only kept in office to execute reforms, and  this is the criterion for his legitimacy.

      Under the above context, it has to be remembered that Al-Hadi was  selected as a transitional figure. He became the president of  Yemen to usher democracy and his term was extended in 2014 for  this purpose. Instead, Al-Hadi dragged his feet on the democratic  reforms — the fundamental basis for his legitimacy — that he was  supposed to institute in Yemen. He was not fulfilling his mandate  to share power and to enfranchise Yemen’s different political  factions.

      President Al-Hadi actually tried to concentrate power into his  own hands while working to weaken Yemen’s other factions,  including the Houthis, through gerrymandering by redrawing  Yemen’s administrative regions.

    Petro-politics & Bab-el-Mandeb Strait: Another war for  control of oil?

      The geopolitical significance of Yemen has weighed heavily in the  equation. This war is as much about oil as it is about Saudi  suzerainty and the House of Saud’s objectives to make Yemen a  vassal state. Alongside Djibouti, Yemen forms part of an  important maritime chokepoint, called the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait  (also known as the Gateway of Tears/Anguish), which connects the  Indian Ocean’s Gulf of Aden and the Red Sea.

      It is no exaggerations to call the Mandeb Strait one of the  world’s arteries. As a maritime chokepoint, the strait is just as  important as Egypt’s Suez Canal — which connects the  Mediterranean to the Red Sea — and the Strait of Hormuz in the  Persian Gulf, because Bab-el-Mandeb overlooks one of the most  strategic and important global corridors for the transportation  of energy and international commerce.

      Preventing US and Saudi rivals from gaining a strategic foothold  over the Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden is a major objective  of the war on Yemen. The US and the House of Saud see control  over the Mandeb Strait and the Gulf of Aden as strategically  important in the scenario of a conflict with Iran where Tehran  closes the Strait of Hormuz to oil shipments and international  shipping. As the New York Times points out, “Nearly all Saudi commerce is  via sea, and direct access to the Arabian Sea would diminish  dependence on the Persian Gulf — and fears of Iran’s ability to  cut off the Strait of Hormuz.” Plan B in such a scenario for  the Kingdom includes   using Aden and other Yemeni ports.

      Support for the balkanization of Yemen chimes with this and ideas  about dividing Yemen have been floating around since the Arab  Spring. In 2013, the New York Times had this to propose about a  Saudi takeover and annexation of southern Yemen: “Arabs are  abuzz about part of South Yemen’s eventually merging with Saudi  Arabia. Most southerners are Sunni, as is most of Saudi Arabia;  many have family in the kingdom. The poorest Arabs, Yemenis could  benefit from Saudi riches. In turn, Saudis would gain access to  the Arabian Sea for trade, diminishing dependence on the Persian  Gulf and fear of Iran’s virtual control over the Strait of  Hormuz.”

    Houthi control over Yemen, however, complicates and obscures US  and Saudi plans.

      Mandeb Strait and control of strategic chokepoints

      As Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah has rightly  pointed out, the Houthis and the Yemeni military are capable   of  closing the Mandeb Strait. One of the reasons that Saudi  Ambassador to Washington Adel Al-Jubeir stressed that the Houthis  should not have control over ballistic missiles, heavy military  hardware, and Yemeni bases is because the US and Saudi Arabia  want to neutralize the potential of Yemen to close the Mandeb  Strait, especially if Yemen should coordinate with Tehran as an  Iranian ally in the future. In this regard, the Saudis have  attacked Yemen’s missile depots. The aim of the air strikes  include not only preventing Yemen’s missile arsenal from being  used to retaliate against any exertions of Saudi force, but to  also prevent them from being on hand to a Yemen government  aligned to Tehran or other US rivals.

      Moreover, it has to be remembered that control over Yemen is not  only important for mitigating the effects from a scenario where  the Strait of Hormuz are closed by Tehran. Control over Mandeb  Strait is also important for tightening the noose around the  Iranians and in the scenario of a war with Iran. The same can be  argued about a US strategy in the Indian Ocean against the  Chinese.

      Back in 2011, when Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin  was serving in Brussels as Moscow’s envoy to NATO, he noted that  Washington was not only planning on taking over Syria as a  beachhead for a war with Iran, but that the US and its allies  would later try to control Yemen as the next step in preparing  the grounds  for an attack on Iran. At the time, RIA Novosti (now renamed  Sputnik) reported that “Rogozin agreed with the  opinion expressed by some experts that Syria and later Yemen  could be NATO’s last steps on the way to launch an attack on  Iran.”

    Why did Netanyahu warn US Congress about Yemen?

      Reports that Israel is a not-so-secret member of the Saudi-led  coalition that is bombing Yemen need to be read, understood,  analyzed in the above context about the Mandeb Strait too.  Netanyahu’s unspoken concern is that Yemen could cut off Israel’s  access to the Indian Ocean and, more specifically, its ability to  easily deploy its Dolphin class submarines to the Iranian coast  in the Persian Gulf.

    Who is threatening who? According to the Sunday Times and Israeli  sources,   three nuclear-armed Israeli submarines are deployed near  Iran’s shores at all times waiting on standby for orders from Tel  Aviv to bomb Iran. In part, this is why Israeli Prime Minister  Benjamin Netanyahu was ringing the alarm bells about Yemen  and the Mandeb Strait in the Washington Beltway when he went  to speak on Capitol Hill on March 4.

      Israel is concerned about Yemen because an independent Yemeni  government could inhibit Israel’s nuclear-armed submarines from  easily deploying from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf to menace  Iran with the threat of an attack.

      Iran and the Houthis

      Just like the case with Ukraine, all the problems in Yemen are  also being blamed on a nearby country. While Russia has been  blamed as the scapegoat for the plethora of problems in Ukraine,  Iran has been blamed for the Saudi war on Yemen.

      The Saudis are falsely depicting the Houthis as Iranian proxies  or allies, because the movement is composed of Zaidi (Fiver)  Shiites. The Houthis, however, are independent from Tehran and  have agency as political actors; they are not Iranian proxies  whatsoever. A common faith has not brought the Houthis and the  Iranians, who are predominately Jaffari (Twelver) Shiites,  together. Politics is what has brought the two together.

      The sectarian language that falsely depicts Yemen as a  battleground between Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims is ill  informed or intended to mislead people by design about the actual  politics and history of Yemen. This type of sectarian language  was never used when the House of Saud supported King Mohammed  Al-Badr’s Zaidi imamate against the republicans or Ali Abdullah  Saleh, who himself is a Zaidi Shiite, against the Houthis.

      Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah is very accurate  when he points out that different regional players are turning to  Tehran for help, because either Saudi Arabia will not help them  or is pushing them in the direction of Iran through its foolish  policies. This has been precisely the case for the Houthis. If it  was not for the flawed policies of the US and Saudi Arabia, the  Houthis would never have turned to Iran in the first place.

      The Houthis also sent delegations to Moscow and Beijing to  overcome US and Saudi efforts to isolate and weaken them  internationally.

      Will Yemen become Saudi Arabia’s Vietnam?

      Historically, foreign intervention in Yemen has largely proven to  be a disaster. Yemeni terrain is rugged and the elevated interior  topography is perfect for guerilla warfare. Gamal Abdel Nasser’s  Egypt lost many soldiers in North Yemen during its civil war,  which was a major liability for Cairo.

      When Ibn Saud was conquering Arabia, he was stopped in Yemen by  King Yahya.

      In more recent history times, when Saudi Arabia invaded Yemen to  fight the Houthis in 2009 and 2010, it was effectively defeated  again in Yemen. The Houthis even ended up capturing towns inside  Saudi Arabia.

      Ground operations will not be a walk in the park for Saudi  Arabia. Any invasion and occupation of Yemen will prove to be a  disaster for the Kingdom. There are also complex tribal links  between southern Saudi Arabia and Yemen. In the chaos a Pandora’s  Box could be ignited that would result in rebellions inside the  Kingdom itself.

      The House of Saud seems to be cognizant of the dangers. This may  be why it is pushing Pakistan and Egypt to send their troops.

      Someone should tell the House of Saud that according to the  Chinese general Sun Tzu, “The best war is the one that never  has to be fought.”
