Dozens sentenced to life in prison in UAE mass trial

A mass trial of dissidents in the United Arab Emirates sentenced 43 people to life in prison on Wednesday while several other defendants received long prison terms in a case that has been widely criticised by activists abroad.
 
The sentences given by the Abu Dhabi Federal Court of Appeal, came in a case described by the UAE government as involving the Muslim Brotherhood, a pan-Islamic organisation declared a terrorist group by the Emirates.
 
Activists, however, decried the case as targeting dissidents, something that drew attention and protests at the United Nations COP28 climate talks held in Dubai last November.
