Marri was speaking during a meeting with Chairperson of GANHRI Beate Rudolf, where he gave a timeline of the GCC crisis and the different efforts of the NHRC to defend the rights of the siege victims in accordance to the Paris Principles.Marri highlighted that the committee has been doing its best to communicate with human rights committees in the siege countries, encouraging them all to coordinate to protect human rights and protect the GCC people from being affected by any political differences. He informed Rudolf that the siege countries, instead of responding to those violations, looked to tarnish the image of NHRC instead and actively look a withdrawal of its international accreditation from other humanitarian institutions and from the UN.He said the report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Technical Mission Team on the impact of the Gulf crisis on human rights confirmed the findings of the NHRC and document the violations of the siege countries.Marri said he is ready to attend the next GANHRI meetings to explain the GCC crisis and the efforts of NHRC to end the violations of the siege countries. Marri also urged the German Parliament to send an official mission to Doha to find out the repercussions of the unjust siege imposed on Qatar.
