The state-run WAM news agency reported today that the Public Prosecution for Cybercrimes office had ordered Ahmad Mansoor's arrest.
Mansoor was detained after a raid on his home in the emirate of Ajman on Monday. He received the prestigious Martin Ennals Award last year for bringing attention to arbitrary arrests, concerns of torture and issues around the independence of the judiciary in the UAE. Rights groups are calling for his release.
