    United Nations, Jan 10 : The United Nations has expressed concern over the grim human rights situation in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    A report by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has shed light on the suppression of freedom of expression and the undue influence of executive authorities and security services on the judiciary in the Emirati state.

    The 13-page report was prepared on January 5 and is expected to be presented at the 29th session of the Human Rights Council, which will run from January 15 to 26.
