Prominent Emirati human rights activist Alaa al-Siddiq died tragically

late Saturday in a car crash in London, the UK.

Alaa al-Siddiq was the daughter of Mohammad al-Siddiq, a political prisoner in UAE jails since 2013.

Stripped of her nationality, Alaa took asylum in Qatar in 2012 to settle then in London in 2018 after the UAE asked Doha to hand her over.

Dozens of human rights groups and prominent activists mourned Alaa as a prominent dissident Emirati rights activist and critic.

However, some activists raised questions about her sudden death, especially that she was wanted by UAE authorities.

Her death sparked shock on social media.




More than 200 political prisoners are currently held in UAE jails amid frequent rights calls for their immediate and unconditional release, especially that some of them are held beyond their release dates.
