Saed Al Hebsi, Director of the Human Rights Department at the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, confirmed that these allegations are false and a mere repetition of previously disproven claims.

The UAE had previously refuted the claims made by Impact International for Human Rights Policies which repeated the same allegations they previously published back in 2021.

Al Hebsi noted that they were incorrect, as the measures that were taken in terms of the arrest and deportation of a limited number of workers were carried out as part of legal procedures and that all workers, without exception, are bound by documented legal labour contracts that preserve their rights. “The concerned parties must abide by the terms of these contracts, and any termination of a contractual relationship with the must take place in accordance with the requirements set forth in contracts.”

The UAE remains committed to full transparency in dealing with these issues and urges the media to refer to official statements by the relevant UAE authorities in this regard
