We would like this opportunity to wish everyone a happy and prosperous new year, and to offer our heartfelt thanks to all of our friends and supporters.

Our CEO, Radha Stirling, who founded Detained in Dubai after her friend’s arrest over a decade ago, extends her warmest wishes, saying “2018 has indeed been a year that has challenged us with many grave injustices to fight, and battles to win. I am grateful to our friends, old and new, for making this work so rewarding. We have many new plans in place for the New Year and look forward to sharing them with you. Happy New Year!”

  • Thank you to press for the great assistance and service you offer in the field of human rights. Without your support, so many more this year would be either dead or in prison. Highlighting issues of injustice saves lives and a journalist’s work is crucial
