NHRC Chairman: New report exposes UAE violations of ICJ decisions for second consecutive year

His Excellency welcomed the decision of the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) in Geneva on the admissibility of the two complaints in terms of jurisdiction submitted by the State of Qatar.
HE Chairman of NHRC added that the complaints will demonstrate to the world the crimes of racial discrimination committed by the UAE against the Qatari people, and we believe that there will be a strong condemnation of the UAE and a demand to compensate victims of racial discrimination, reported Qatar News Agency (QNA).

HE Chairman of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) Dr. Ali bin Smaikh Al Marri has revealed that a new report will be released at the beginning of next year to expose the continued violations by the UAE of the International Court of Justice's decision for the second consecutive year since the beginning of the blockade.

His Excellency said that he expects a strong condemnation of the UAE and a demand for compensation for victims of racial discrimination, pointing out that the complaints filed by Qatar will show the crimes of racial discrimination committed by the UAE against the people of Qatar.

This came during a hearing at the European Parliament headquarters in the Belgian capital Brussels which is the first of its kind to be held in the European Parliament after the election of its new members, especially in the Subcommittee on Human Rights amid the presence of prominent media reporters and media accredited to the European Parliament.
