Qatar- Al Marri to launch report documenting UAE violations



(MENAFN - The Peninsula) QNA

Geneva: The Chairman of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) Dr. Ali bin Smaikh Al Marri has announced that a comprehensive report will be launched next month, documenting violations by the UAE of the decisions of the International Court of Justice and the continuation of the UAE in obstructing citizens and residents in Qatar, and to prevent those affected by recourse to the courts to regain their rights, despite the Abu Dhabi authorities' formal commitment to implementing the decisions of the International Court of Justice in this regard.

During his meeting yesterday with Michel Bachelet, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Al Marri called on the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) to immediately and effectively move to take steps to stop the UAE violations and ensure full commitment by the Abu Dhabi authorities to respect the conventions and recommendations of international bodies to take deterrent measures to ensure an end to UAE violations and ensure full commitment by Abu Dhabi authorities to respect the conventions and recommendations of international bodies and to implement the precautionary decision of the International Court of Justice on the cessation of discriminatory measures against citizens and residents of Qatar.

He affirmed the readiness of the Permanent Committee to cooperate with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights in all matters that would protect human rights and defend themregionally and internationally and to push for urgent and effective solutions to stop the suffering of thousands of families affected by the siege.

Dr. Al Marri praised the prominent and effective role played by UNHCR in addressing the serious violations caused by the blockade of Qatar through its numerous reports and correspondence to the countries of the blockade, demanding their cessation of human rights violations, and issuing the first official UN report that explicitly condemns such violations and calls for their cessation.

He also called on the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to take measures to ensure that the blockading countries comply with the findings of the technical mission of the High Commissioner following her visit to Doha in November 2017.

This culminated in the issuance of the first official UN report condemning the violations of the blockading countries and urges them to stop 'discriminatory and arbitrary measures.

He noted that despite the warnings issued by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights on the dangers of such violations, 11 special rapporteurs of the Human Rights Council and the Group on Arbitrary Detention sent letters to the blockading countries urging them to stop their violations and discriminatory measures against citizens and residents of Qatar, Of the complaints that will be resolved soon by a number of organizations and bodies of the United Nations, but the blockading countries continue to ignore the resolutions of the United Nations, the international community, and human rights organisations.
