It is noteworthy that in mid-January, the mother of the Omani detainee in the UAE prisons, Abdullah Al-Shamsi, sent a letter to the wife of Sultan Haitham bin Tariq, to save her son.
She said in a tweet to her on Twitter, which was monitored by (Watan) at the time: “I address my message to the venerable Lady Ahed, wife of His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tariq. Your son Abdullah Al-Shamsi is asking God and you to end his suffering.
She added that her son’s health is not acceptable for him to stay in prison and dreams of completing university.
She said she hoped that her son’s message would reach the venerable wife, wife of Sultan Haitham.
Earlier, Abdullah’s mother asked about his fate, after the reconciliation was completed.
A message to Mohammed bin Zayed
The mother of Abdullah Al Shamsi also called on the officials in the Emirates, headed by Mohammed bin Zayed. And the Sultanate of Oman to intervene immediately and consider the case of her son.
Umm Abdullah Al-Shamsi said during a tweet on her Twitter account, which was monitored by Watan in early February: “I call on officials in the UAE and the Sultanate of Oman. By intervening and looking into the issue of my son Abdullah Al-Shamsi ”

The grieving mother concluded: “In every contact my son asks for a conversation with his little brother whom he longed for, how long my heart will bear to see the longing of his brothers for him and his longing for his brothers.”
Life imprisonment for Shamsi
Last August, the Federal Supreme Court in the UAE upheld the life sentence for an Omani detainee in the UAE prisons, nearly two years ago, on charges of communicating with Qatar against the UAE.
Al Shamsi was arrested at a young age, and the UAE judiciary charged him with spying for the State of Qatar.
Al Shamsi suffers from psychological disorders, and with prison conditions, he tried to commit suicide and put an end to his life.
He also lives in one kidney after the second is removed as a result of a fourth degree cancerous tumor.
Human Rights Watch previously considered Al-Shamsi’s trial and life imprisonment an “unfair trial.”
“Forgive me, son.”
The mother of the Omani detainee, Abdullah Al-Shamsi, published an influential message on the communication sites regarding her son, who has been detained in UAE prisons several years ago, for allegedly spying for Qatar.
Abdullah Al Shamsi’s mother said, in a tweet monitored by “Watan”: “Forgive me, my son. I only have to pray if I could help you. I will redeem you and take your place for you to come out. And continue your studies and live your life. And achieve what you dreamed and aspire to and live it like what the children of your age live now, with no strength or power except in God.
The UAE allegations are false
The tweeters criticized the UAE’s claims of “tolerance,” considering that the “Al Shamsi” case exposed those allegations and revealed their falsehood.
Abdullah’s mother had appealed to the Sultan of Oman, Haitham bin Tariq, to intervene in the case of her son, who was sentenced to life imprisonment despite his young age.
