NHRC will start taking legal action over Saudi Arabian violations soon: Al Marri

By QLNews

Qatar’s National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) Chairman Dr Ali bin Smaikh Al Marri said the committee would soon start taking legal action against Saudi Arabia’s human rights violations before the United Nations (UN) and international institutions.

He said they would also file complaints about Saudi Arabia’s politicisation of religious rituals, reported Gulf Times.

Legal measures will also be taken before the European Parliament and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco).

Dr Al Marri said that for the third year, there were no signs of positivity or hope that reflect Saudi authorities’ willingness to put an end to the obstacles that prevent Qatari citizens from performing the Haj and Umrah.

He was speaking to Jan Figel, the Special Envoy for the Promotion of Freedom of Religion or Belief outside the European Union (EU), in Brussels.

The NHRC chairman provided an overview of the psychological and material damage caused by the Saudi authorities to pilgrims in Qatar, in addition to the financial losses suffered by Haj and Umrah campaigns.
