The National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) has expressed its great satisfaction at the decision of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to reject the complaint filed by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) concerning interim measures against Qatar in the case of discriminatory measures under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination in its dispute with Qatar.

NHRC said in a statement that it had "received with great satisfaction the decision of the International Court of Justice on June 14, 2019 to reject the complaint filed by the UAE on temporary measures under the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination in its dispute with Qatar, where the court rejected the UAE's demand that Qatar be bound by a number of measures, including the immediate withdrawal of its complaint against the United Arab Emirates to the UN Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the prohibition of its national organisations and the media from publishing accusations against them in cases before the International Court of Justice, and other measures. "

NHRC welcomes the decision of the International Court of Justice, which it considers to be an essential step in addition to the Court's first decision of July 23, 2018 to redress victims as another proof of the soundness of the legal moves of Qatar, and that recourse to all international means and mechanisms is not an escalation, but a legitimate right - guaranteed by international conventions to achieve justice - fairness and compensation to victims, the statement added.

NHRC stressed that this important decision came from the court also to refute the UAE's allegations against the NHRC and attempts to question its credibility through UAE officials, noting that the UAE's policy of escaping to cover up its crimes and violations committed against the people of Qatar and the Gulf peoples will not work and will not prevent international condemnation and accountability.

NHRC also congratulated the victims of the blockade and human rights organisations for the second victory in the judicial process launched by the State of Qatar "to end all kinds of violations resulting from the blockade and to redress those affected."
