After months and weeks of pressure on the security forces of the United Arab Emirates, a variety of protest such as vigils for the families of the detainees, or dozens of reports of local and international human rights organizations and the media, the UAE and its arm Military "security belt" decided to close the files of 140 forcibly hidden detainees through transfering them to new prisons, and the launch of the work officially in the presence of General Attorney Ali al-Aush and a number of representatives of the judiciary and the Ministry of Interior.
 
The famlies of the detainees thought that their promblems were solved but the situation of the detainees in Bir Ahmad is still the same, not only that, but more than 300 of those who were in the central prison in Mansoura, The others were transferred to the new prison in Bir Ahmed, in a flagrant violation of a long series of abuses by the UAE and its security belt forces.
 
According to security sources ,the inmates of the central prison in Mansoura were transferred to the new Bir Ahmed prison, called the second section of the Central Prison, about two weeks ago in separate batches.
 
The sources added to "Almawqea Post" that the decision to transfer the inmates of the central prison in Mansoura was taken by officers of the UAE forces, which leads the operations of the Arab Coalition in the temporary capital Aden, without the Attorney-General's role in the process.
 
Small number of detainees had been kept in the central prison to find sufficient space to accommodate the inmates of the criminal investigation prison, which had been targeted by a terrorist attack who has been completely destroyed. This required the transfer of more than 100 prisoners at one of the nearby camps in Khormaksar before being transferred to Central prison in Mansoura.
 
"We went to visit him last Thursday to be surprised by the prison's guard that he has been transfered and visits in general are not allowed in the central prison," said the sister of one of the inmates of the central prison in Mansoura.
 
The sister of the detainee - who preferred not to be named for his safety - to " Almawqea Post" my brother became hidden in the prison, being detained without any investigation in the central prison for more than 10 months.
 
She added "They were transferred from the central prison to an unknown destination, without even being told where they were taken." She also demanded the Attorney General Ali Al-Aoush and the legitmacy government generally to inform them about the fate of her brother and the other inmates of Mansoura Central Prison who were forcibly hidden.
 
Um Hussein Nageeb, who was forcibly hidden in the prison of Bir Ahmad, supervised by the security forces of the UAE, said that we went to the Bir Ahmad prison to visit our children, a few days after we heard the news that the detainees were transferred to another new prison.
 
Unfortunately, they did not allow us to cross from the first security checkpoint. The soldiers told the driver of the bus that I was traveling with a number of mothers and wives of the hidden detainees that they have instructions to prevent any citizens from approaching, and they were speaking in the tone of threat.
 
"How long will our children remain forcibly hidden!" She asks. "What is the purpose for a new prison to be created and considered in the central prison,where we are not allowed even to visit them.
 
She said she was surprised by the attendance of the Attorney-General and representatives of the Ministry of the Interior to inaugurate the new prison, which eventually appeared to be a continuation of the UAE forces and the belt Security and is not related to legitimacy at all.
 
Activity for the detainees people
 
Every week the mothers of the detainees call for a vigil, In a scene that became ordinary in the streets of Aden, these vigil have not stopped since the middle of 2016.
 
The association issued a press statement a few days ago, saying that "our detained relatives, who received information about their presence in the old prison of Bir Ahmed, have been subjected to a new forced concealment by transferring them to a new secret detention facility. We do not know anything about them. Are they in Yemen or outside Yemen??".
 
The statement added that "the new prison, which is being promoted, is nothing more than a new secret detention center, which is subject to the same security and UAE authorities that have managed the previous prisons with all the crimes they have witnessed against the detainees, and prevented us from visiting this prison is clear evidence that it is no different , As long as it is not subject to the authority of the law and the judiciary, and people are arrested by orders of non-competent bodies.
 
The statement said that the UAE forces, the Aden security administration, the security belt leadership and the administration of Bir Ahmed prison are directly responsible for the fate and safety of the enforced disappearances in Bir Ahmed. In addition to the legitimate government, it is responsible for the violations and crimes committed against its citizens.
