The Chairman of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) Dr Ali bin Smaikh al Marri has called on the United Nations Human Rights Council to suspend the membership of Saudi Arabia and the UAE owing to rampant human rights violations committed by the countries against the people of Qatar.


In this regard, the NHRC chief also urged the Qatari government to approach the United Nations Security Council to hold the blockading countries to account for the illegal measures they have taken against Qatar which constitute a crime of aggression, an economic war and collective punishment of Qatari nationals, as reported Qatar Tribune.

He stressed on the urgent measures by the UN Human Rights High Commission to address the violations committed by the Saudi-led alliance countries aligning with the conclusions issued in the report of its technical delegation.

Further, the need was also emphasised to collaborate with an international centre for medicine and psychological support to evaluate the extent of psychological damage inflicted on the blockade victims, especially divided families, students and pilgrims who are barred from performing religious rituals.
