An Update on the Latest Arrest
Name: Mohammed Salih Al-Zumur
Time/date: 9 pm/5th of December 2012
His father is Salem Al-Zumur, a well know poet in UAE. And his mother is the sister of Khalid Al-Shaibah Al-Nujami (one of the 63 detainees from Ajman). His mother’s account on twitter is: @Amee1970
He was arrested on the street along with a friend of his. They too all of their devices (phones, iPads… etc). They dropped his friend at his home, and then went to Mohammed’s house, presented to his family the arrest and search warrant (no reason written, it only says “matter of state security”). His house was searched for about an hour, electronic devices were taken (a laptop). One of the security individuals showed his ID quickly without revealing the photo on the ID (he placed his finger on it), they were wearing civilian clothing.
He was taken to unknown place. As previously figured, this means to the state security unknown place.
This arrest comes after series of actions that the authorities took such as suspending bank accounts of the detainees and their wives’/sons’/daughters’ and other family members (brothers/sisters), interrogating on fabricated charges, travel bans, and now this new arrest of this young man.
This bring the total number of detainees to 64 detainees.
