ABC has uncovered video of the shows a member of a member of the United Arab Emirates’s royal family mercilessly torturing a man with whips, electric cattle prods and wooden planks with protruding nails.
A man in a UAE police uniform is seen on the tape tying the victim’s arms and legs, and later holding him down as the Sheikh pours salt on the man’s wounds and then drives over him with his Mercedes SUV.
The government statement said its review found “all rules, policies and procedures were followed correctly by the Police Department.”
“If this is their complete reply, then sadly it’s a scam and it’s a sham,” said Sarah Leah Whitson of Human Rights Watch.
"It is the state that is torturing them," she said, "if the government does not investigate and prosecute these officers, and those commanding those officers."
In a statement to ABC News, the UAE Ministry of the Interior said it had reviewed the tape and acknowledged the involvement of Sheikh Issa bin Zayed al Nahyan, brother of the country’s crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed.
What’s even more shocking is Rafiq was ready to sell his daughter (police have closed the case! – shocker!) to an “Arab sheik”. If they can do this to a grain worker, what could they possibly do to little Rubina? It didn’t bother Rafiq at all who he was selling her to.
Human rights groups are pushing the United States to get involved!
I am so glad to live in the US of A!
