Human Rights activist Ahmed Mansoor, who has worked on the case of the detainees was attacked, he reported the following:
would like to inform you that i was attacked by some one at the University today (at about 4:30 pm, Ajman University, in Ajman). the Attacker was known to me. He was prepared for the mission and had information that I was at the university, though the university classes did not really start as it is the add/drop week.He must have been fed with some info. about my presence at the time and moment at the university.
I was on my way to car leaving the law building, when i was approached by some one, i thought a student or so, he asked me if i’m Ahmed Mansoor, i said yes and i extended my hand to shake his, as we usually do here, but he was quick in spiting in my face and pushing hardly to my back. I fell down on the on my side on the concrete, he wanted to further attack me, but i was quick to stand up, then he start running, i ran after him to take the car plate no. then he started to run faster toward another car that was parking on the main road inside the university, he pulled off the rear car plate from the car and jumped inside. the car was on and there was some one waiting for him and ready to escape, so i could not get the no. of the car plate number.
I ended up with few bruises on my right arm, knee and foot due to the fell down.
I took a medical report and opened a case in Ajman Police Station (Al-Humaidiah Police Center). I informed the officer their and made sure that he puts in the complain that we previously filed several threat complaints but the authorities took no action.
