US Muslim rights groups seeks exit from UAE terrorism list

The Council on American-Islamic Relations says it has sought to be removed from a list in the United Arab Emirates that designates it as a terrorist organization along with dozens of other groups.



Dubai: The Council on American-Islamic Relations says it has sought to be removed from a list in the United Arab Emirates that designates it as a terrorist organization along with dozens of other groups.

CAIR civil rights litigation director Jenifer Wicks said Friday that the Washington-based Muslim civil-liberties group submitted documents this week seeking to appeal the designation.

The Emirates included CAIR on a list of 83 groups it considers terrorist organisations made public on November 15. The list included the Islamic State organization, a number of al-Qaida linked groups, as well as the Muslim Brotherhood and a number of Western-based Islamic organisations.

The Emirati Cabinet this week announced an appeals process that designated groups can follow to seek to removal from the terrorism list.
