Report on UAE violations next month: NHRC chief

Qatar’s National Committee for Human Rights (NHRC) Chairman Dr Ali bin Smaikh al Marri has announced that a comprehensive report documenting Emirati violations of the International Court of Justice’s decisions and the UAE’s continuation of putting obstacles for Qatar’s citizens and residents will be out next month.
During a meeting with UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in Geneva, the NHRC chief called on the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights to take urgent steps to stop the UAE violations and ensure compliance of Abu Dhabi with the ICJ decisions.
Marri praised the effective role played by UNHCR in addressing the serious violations caused by the blockade of Qatar through its numerous reports and correspondence with the blockading countries, demanding the cessation of human rights violations, and issuing the first official UN report that explicitly condemns such violations.
He also called on the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights to take measures to ensure that the siege countries comply with the findings of the technical mission of the UN following a visit to Doha in November 2017.
Marri also discussed the issue of four Qatari nationals arbitrarily detained by the Saudi authorities.
He called on the High Commissioner for Human Rights to hold the Saudi authorities accountable for their whereabouts and press for their immediate release.
Marri conveyed to the High Commissioner the suffering of the families of the Qatari detained citizens in the absence of any information about their whereabouts.
He said the NHRC provided all the information requested by the relevant UN bodies on the identity of Qatari nationals who are arbitrarily detained in Saudi Arabia.
He stressed that the NHRC will not remain silent and will continue its actions and take all legal measures until the citizens are released.
Marri also handed over reports of violations during a year and a half of the siege to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The NHRC chief also hoped that the next Gulf summit will establish a mechanism to find a solution to the suffering of the victims of the siege and will redress them.
