My son Christian Wilke is held in the prison of Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates since October 2017. He hasn’t been told what the charges are. We don’t know why he’s there. Before his imprisonment Christian, was working as an IT teacher at a local school. He’s a dual national, British and German.
The conditions in Al Ain are cruel. He’s barely being fed and has lost 18 kilos of weight. There are rats running around and cockroaches in the food. Being there he developed pneumonia and was denied adequate medical care. His blanket has not been changed for four months. He was put under pressure and sleep deprivation. The light was switched on for four weeks when he was in pre-trial detention. During the day it is too hot in prison and during the night it is too cold.
He was denied a lawyer for 52 days and could not contact anyone outside prison until Christmas. This was the first time I could actually have a surveilled phone call of just 5 minutes with him.
Up to today we do not know the criminal charge is. Christian mentioned “electronic insults” and says this could be something like sharing the wrong post on Facebook.
My son has been struggling to survive for four months. Please support me and family with your signature so that my son Christian will be released.
We ask for the immediate closure of this case and appeal to the government of the United Arab Emirates: Please release my son from prison!
