Alkarama sent a new demand to Ms. Louise Arbour High Commissioner for Human Rights asking her to intervene with the Jordanian authorities in the case of Mr Al Uteibi, arrested on November 28, 2002 and held in detention, without due process of law despite a judgement of acquittal on Dec. 27, 2004. Alkarama had sent several communications (press releases of April 17, 2007 and June 7, 2007) to United Nations organs and the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention issued at its session of November 2007 a notice that the detention of Mr Al Uteibi is arbitrary (press release of January 15, 2008).
