GENEVA, 11th September, 2017 (WAM) -- The Arab Federation of Human Rights, the Arab Organisation of Human Rights in the United Kingdom (UK) and the organisers of the global campaign against Qatar’s financing of terrorism stressed that the speech delivered today by Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani, Qatari Minister of Foreign Affairs, during the 36th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, was not truthful.

In their statement, the Arab Federation of Human Rights, the Arab Organisation of Human Rights in the UK and the organisers of the global campaign against Qatar’s financing of terrorism said that Qatar’s minister of foreign affairs had delivered the speech to escape from the allegations that his country’s government violated human rights, while the observers confirmed the inaccuracy of his statements.

The statement highlighted that Qatar was among the countries that violated workers’ rights, especially with most of its labour force being foreign workers who do not receive proper care in case of injuries, and therefore, there must be international intervention to save their lives, force Qatar to stop these violations and provide them with humane working conditions.

The statement expressed deep concerns about the attempt being made by Qatar’s minister of foreign affairs to conceal the human rights violations taking place in Qatar, including arbitrary detention, systematic torture, the strict restraints on the freedom of expression and the freedom to form organisations, as well as the financing of terrorism.

The statement stressed that Qatar’s refusal to transport Qatari pilgrims to the sacred lands at the expense of the King of Saudi Arabia revealed the intransigence of the Qatari regime, especially when it concerned the practice of an Islamic obligation, stressing that this stance revealed Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani’s regime was complicating the current crisis by refusing to commit to the conditions made by the four countries calling on it to combat terrorism.

The statement stressed that the refusal of Doha to accept the logical demands of the four countries confirmed its close links to terrorism, and its insistence in threatening the security and stability of the Gulf and the Arab region.

The statement highlighted that Qatar had confirmed through its various stances its hostility to Qatari citizens, first, and to Gulf, Arab and Muslim citizens by insisting on supporting terrorist groups, financing them and interfering in the internal affairs of Arab countries, which would lead to threatening the stability of the region and turning it into a source of extremism.

The statement called on Qatar to combat the systematic torture taking place within it, highlighting the story of Qatari pilgrim Hamad Abdulhady Al Dhabbab Al Kahla Al Marri, who is being tortured and interrogated by Qatar’s state security after returning from pilgrimage, as he is being accused of making the pilgrimage to Mecca and giving a statement to the Saudi media, praising the services provided to pilgrims.

The statement called upon the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Human Rights Council, during its new session, as well as UN’s special rapporteur on anti-torture, to condemn the torture in places of detention and prisons in Qatar. The statement also demanded to bring the perpetrators before justice and to urge Qatar to stop the torture immediately.
