'Nahyan Sheikh' caught red-handed in a
shocking Torture Video'!


A 45-minute videotape featured in a news segment on ABC News on April 22, 2009, suggests a man that the Government of Abu Dhabi has acknowledged is Sheikh Issa bin Zayed al-Nahyan ghastly torturing Mohammed Shah Poor, an Afghan grain dealer, with the assistance of UAE police and others, as punishment as Shaikh al Nahyan believed that Mr. Poor had short changed him in a sale of grain.

High lights:-

The Sheikh begins by stuffing sand down the man's mouth, as the police officers restrains Mr. Poor. The torture involved shooting an automatic rifle around the victim in very close proximity as the victim was screaming.  At another point on the tape, the Sheikh can be seen telling the cameraman to come closer. "Get closer. Get closer. Let his suffering show," the Sheikh says. Over the course of the tape, Sheikh Issa acts in an increasingly sadistic manner.

The Sheikh then pulls down the pants of the victim and repeatedly strikes him with wooden planks and its protruding nail. At one point, he puts the nail next to the man's buttocks and bangs it through the flesh. "Where's the salt," asks the Sheikh as he pours a large container of salt on to the man's bleeding wounds. He uses an electric cattle prod, a relatively high-voltage electric shock device against the man's testicles and inserts it in his anus. 

Then the tape shows, as the man wails in pain, the Sheikh pours lighter fluid on the man's testicles and sets them aflame. The final scene on the tape shows the Sheikh positioning his victim on the desert sand and then driving over him repeatedly. A sound of breaking bones can be heard on the tape.

Warning: Here is the videotape showing the torture of Afghan businessman. Probably the most disturbing video that has ever been shown to the public. [Graphic Content of the video.

ABC News Exclusive: Torture Tape Implicates UAE Royal Sheikh

According to HRW’s April 29 statement: “The government’s failure to prosecute those involved in this undisputed incident of torture and abuse at the hands of a royal family member and the police is an appalling miscarriage of justice,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, Executive director of the Middle East. “What’s even more shocking is the government’s insistence that it investigated and found no violation of UAE laws.”

“If this is their complete reply, then sadly it’s a scam and it’s a sham.” said Whitson. One of the most alarming aspects of the tape was the involvement of the police, she added. “It is the state that is torturing them if the government does not investigate and prosecute these officers.”

HRW’s statement goes on to say: “Law enforcement officials become criminals when they inflict or tolerate torture,” “The UAE government needs to act now if it is to restore public confidence in the country’s criminal justice system and to show that the rule of law, and not impunity for its violators, is the policy of the country.” said Whitson.

Human Rights Watch: Prosecute Torture by Royal Family Member

[HRW]: Letter to the UAE on the Torture of Mohammed Shah Poor

The tape, broadcast last week by the American television channel, ABC, has already led to calls for the United States to reconsider its commercial ties with the UAE, the tiny but wealthy state that includes Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

James McGovern, a US congressman, has called for a freeze on government aid to the Emirates. In a letter to Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State, Mr McGovern said: "I cannot describe the horror and revulsion I felt when witnessing what is on this video ... I could not watch it without constantly flinching."

The tape was smuggled out of the UAE by US citizen and Houston businessman Bassam Nabulsi, a former business partner of Issa. Nabulsi claims Issa ordered Nabulsi's brother to record the torture scene in order to watch it later at his own leisure. Nabulsi is now suing in America for the alleged mistreatment he received.

Nabulsi says officials at the U.S. Embassy in Abu Dhabi were aware of the torture tapes but took no action to protest the Sheikh's action.

Nabulsi says he even showed portions of the tape to a Department of Homeland Security official stationed in Abu Dhabi to train UAE police, Bill Wallrap.  After the U.S. official watched the tapes, he advised Nabulsi to "gather your family and get out of the country as soon as possible for your own safety."

A spokesman for DHS said neither Wallrap nor the DHS would have any comment on the torture tapes.

Nabulsi says 'Anyone in the United Arab Emirates is subject to the whims of the royal family who rule these areas with an iron fist. The point is, torture is practiced, human rights are ignored, and the court systems are subject to influence by the royal family and corruption in general. Do not travel to the U.A.E. Do not do business ...
