#UAE to return the passport of @Ahmed_Mansoor - his crime he called for Free Elections

This petition had 10 supporters

Ahmed Mansoor was arrested in 2011 by #UAE security services after he and his associates requested free and fair elections across their nation United Arab Emirates.

They were found guilty in November 2011 of insulting President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates and subsequently received a Presidential Pardon.

Since his release Ahmed has been denied employment and his passport has not been returned.

With the establishment of a Ministry of Tolerance surely 2016 is the year when Ahmed should have the rights all humans deserve, the freedom to travel?

This petition is launched as UAE welcomes many authors to Emirates Festival of Literature, hopefully the authors will agree with the aim of this petition.
