DUBAI: A security court in the United Arab Emirates on Monday acquitted two Libyan-American businessmen charged with supporting Libyan militants, a spokesperson for the family said in a statement.

“The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Abu Dhabi Supreme Court State Security Chamber found American businessmen Kamal and Mohamed Eldarat not guilty, after nearly two years of arbitrary detainment and a four-month trial,” the statement said.

A U.N. Special Rapporteur said he had received credible information that the two men had been tortured in custody, an allegation the UAE denies.
