The neutrality of governments towards the blockade is a violation of the rights of victims.

We call on the United Kingdom to stand with victims who are suffering the impacts of the arbitrary measures.

It is not permissible to prolong the suffering of those affected by the failure of the political solution.

The top priority at present is to stop the humanitarian suffering of those affected by the blockade.

Human rights should not be involved in any negotiations or a political path to resolve the crisis.

Britain, recognized for its impartiality and human rights, can take decisive steps to redress victims.

The countries of the blockade are practicing intellectual terrorism and arbitrary arrests of their people, to prevent them from sympathizing with Qatar.

We call on the government of Qatar not to engage in any dialogue before lifting the arbitrary measures and the redress of the victims.

Dr. Ali bin Smaikh Al-Marri, president of the National Human Rights Committee in Qatar, stressed the need for immediate action to end the blockade imposed on Qatar, stressing that The neutrality of governments towards the blockade is a violation of the rights of victims, in particular after the issuance of the official UN report condemning the arbitrary and discriminatory actions of countries involved in one of the worst humanitarian tragedies faced by citizens and residents of Qatar and the citizens of the countries of the blockade.
This came during the NHRC 4th European tour concluded in London where Al Marri met with Mr. Alistair Burt, Minister of State for Middle East and North Africa Affairs, and Mr. Ahmad of Wimbledon, Minister of State for the Commonwealth and the UN at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. The president of the NHRC met with the Ministers of the British Government, in which he handed over an official copy of the report of the OHCHR technical mission issued after their field visit to the State of Qatar last November in which they met more than 40 victims of the blockade, and 20 governmental and non-governmental organizations in the State of Qatar. Al Marri highlighted the State of Qatar’s response to all international human rights organizations and called on them to visit Doha to meet with those directly affected by the blockade, while the countries of the blockade continue to close their doors to the world and prevent the international monitoring bodies and human rights organizations from investigating the serious impacts of the blockade imposed on Qatar. Al Marri praised the efforts of the technical mission, calling on the British government to support the efforts of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, activate the recommendations of the technical mission and work to end the worsening humanitarian crisis; Al Marri also praised the efforts of the delegation of British parliamentarians who visited Doha and issued a comprehensive report on their observations of the effects of the blockade and their foundations, after interviewing a number of those directly affected.
During his meeting at the British Foreign Office, Dr. Al-Marri highlighted the British government’s legal and moral responsibility, while calling on standing with the victims of arbitrary measures and to treat them as being affected by political disputes. During his meeting with the Minister of State for Middle East and North Africa and the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs, and the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Al Marri highlighted the suffering of citizens and residents of Qatar and the three Gulf States (Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain).
In response to the questions of the two ministers, Dr. Al Marri stressed that “the countries of the blockade, contrary to the propagation of their media, continue to undermine the stability and unity of the social fabric of the Gulf because of its arbitrary measures that caused the dispersion of families, Especially after Saudi Arabia’s final closure of the only land link between Qatar and the world, as well as the broadcast of hate speech and the incitement documented in the report of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The president of the National Human Rights Committee told British government officials that ” It is not permissible to prolong the suffering of those affected by the failure of the political solution,” stressing that ” The top priority at present is to stop the humanitarian suffering of those affected by the blockade.”
In this context, Al Marri reiterated his “call on the Government of Qatar not to enter into any dialogue before lifting arbitrary measures and redressing those affected”. “What concerns us in the National Human Rights Commission is the persistence of the countries of the blockade in their arbitrary and discriminatory approaches, and the absence of any intention to lift the injustice and redress of the victims,” Al Marri said. “All international calls and condemnations of their reprisals are disregarded.” “We appreciate the positions of many countries that have expressed their hope that the GCC will remain united, but how can this be achieved,” said Dr. Ali Bin Smaikh. “The countries of the blockade are continuing to tear apart the social fabric of the peoples of the region, just to prevent any sympathy with the State of Qatar and its people.”
“The arbitrary approach of the countries of the blockade is not only a threat to the security and stability of the Gulf States, but also represents a real threat to the collective security system and to the unity of international cooperation in light of the threats facing the world and the exacerbation of crises in an area saturated with enough tension”.

The Greeks have a human heritage that rejects the blockade on the peoples.

We Call for the adoption of the United Nations and the European Parliament of a declaration on a global protection of peoples without being involved in political disputes.

Al-Marri delivered an official copy of the UN report to the Greek parliament speaker.

 

Dr. Ali bin Smaikh Al Marri, president of the National Human Rights Committee in Qatar, called for launching a parliamentary campaign in solidarity with the victims of the blockade imposed on the State of Qatar. He also stressed the important and influential role of the legislative authorities in mobilizing popular movement, condemned the suffering of those affected by the blockade and the justice of their cause, pointing out that parliamentary appeals are gaining strength and credibility while representing the people. “You have a civilization and a human heritage that cannot accept the blockade of the people of Qatar or any other people in the world,” he called on Greek parliamentarians and officials to act urgently and call on the parliaments in European countries, and human rights institutions of European countries, to form a human rights front to establish strong steps and open positions of this unjust blockade, and report the violations of the blockade referred to in the reports of the National Human Rights Committee in Qatar and the reports of international organizations, stressing the importance of working to put diplomatic pressure on the countries of the blockade, to end the blockade imposed on Qatar, and to redress the victims. Dr. Al-Marri said the report of the OHCHR mission acts as an important reference to the adoption of a resolution in the European Parliament condemning the blockade and gives strong impetus to raise the issue of the blockade of the peoples as one of the most recent violations of the modern era that must be fought. ” We should work at the level of parliaments to issue recommendations condemning the blockade imposed on the peoples and other forms of collective punishment” he said, adding that the NHRC will work with its partners to urge countries to adopt a draft resolution in the European Parliament and the General Assembly of the United Nations to adopt a global declaration to protect peoples from the blockade and not to be involved in political disputes.
During the hearing in the Greek Parliament, Dr. Al Marri gave a brief overview of the report of the technical mission of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, which includes important and strong conclusions, formally endorsing the violations monitored by the National Human Rights Committee since the beginning of the blockade crisis.
Dr. Ali Bin Smaikh stressed that the UN report is the first official UN report condemning the arbitrary measures and violations committed by the countries of the blockade, describing these measures as being unequal and characterized by racism. He added: “The report affirmed that the measures taken by the countries of the blockade do not distinguish between the government and civilians, especially the holders of Qatari nationality, and that this is considered very critical, describing The economic impact of the blockade as amounts to economic war.” Al Marri added that The report affirms unambiguously that the measures taken by the countries of the blockade are arbitrary and unilateral and violate international law, the principles of international relations and human rights conventions. He stressed that “the report affirmed that the violations suffered by the citizens and residents of the State of Qatar and the citizens of the GCC countries are not allegations as claimed by the countries of the blockade, but facts that are proven by conclusive evidence.
Considering the membership of Greece in the European Union, Al Marri called on the Greek Parliament and the Greek Government to urge the European parliaments, and all European human rights institutions to play their role in promoting the protection of peoples from collective punishment and engaging them in political conflicts.
In the same context, the President of the NHRC met with Professor Berkabek, Chairman of the Standing Committee for National Defense and Foreign Affairs, and handed him an official copy of the report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. During the meeting, Dr. Al Marri raised the impacts of the blockade on human rights in the Gulf region and the movements of the NHRC since the beginning of the crisis. During the meeting, the two sides discussed the importance of highlighting the role of parliaments through their human rights committees in promoting violations of the blockade imposed on Qatar. The two sides also stressed the importance of building bridges of joint cooperation in issues related to the promotion of human rights.

We demand strong international clear positions against the blockade based on the report of the technical mission of the OHCHR.

The UN report dropped any justification for neutrality towards the violations of the blockade.

Conclusions of the OHCHR’s report are consistent with reports of the National Human Rights Committee of Qatar.

Dr. Ali bin Smaikh Al Marri, president of the National Human Rights Committee in Qatar, affirmed that the report of the technical mission of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights represents an international consensus to lift the injustice suffered by the affected people and end the blockade imposed by Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Bahrain and Egypt on Qatar. Based on The report on the impacts of the blockade, the blockade is not legal, pointing out that the report proved violations of human rights in the Gulf region.
This came during the meeting held by Dr. Al-Marri with Mr. Georgios Katarogalos, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs of the Greek Republic. Dr. Al-Marri stressed the need to take a clear and frank stance on the human rights violations caused by the blockade imposed on Qatar, according to the official report of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, which officially recognized the violations and arbitrary measures against citizens and residents of Qatar and citizens of the three Gulf countries involved in the blockade.
Al-Marri said during his meetings with Greek officials that the report of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights is the first official document issued by the United Nations, affirming beyond any doubt the violations caused by the countries of the blockade against the citizens and residents of Qatar, and the three Gulf countries.
Al Marri stressed that the report of the OHCHR acknowledged the existence of serious violations involving the countries of the blockade, and that they were involved in arbitrary and racist procedures, and that it amounted to economic war against Qatar. Al Marri pointed out that the issuance of an official report on the United Nations finally drops any justification to prevent States and human rights organizations from taking explicit and declared positions against the blockade.
Al-Marri: The UN report proved the falseness of the allegations of the institutions of countries of the blockade that reports of human rights organizations such as Amnesty and Human Rights Watch lack credibility. Al-Marri said that the foundations of the report of the United Nations technical mission is consistent with the reports that have been published by the National Committee for Human Rights since the beginning of the blockade with all transparency and credibility.
The president of the National Human Rights Committee in Qatar said: “Doha has opened its doors to human rights organizations and international missions with confidence and transparency to find out the reality of the victims of the blockade at a time when the countries of the blockade have opened their doors to all organizations and fact finding missions”.
Al Marri added that many officials in governments and international organizations were waiting for the UN report to declare explicit positions on the blockade. there is no justification or argument that prevents states, governments and organizations from taking strong and immediate measures to end the blockade and non-compliance with these violations.
Dr. Al-Marri met with a number of human rights officials of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Justice of Greece and the Greek National Commission for Human Rights, on Athens in his fourth European tour to the European Union since the beginning of the blockade imposed on Qatar, on June 5, 2017. During the first day of his visit to Greece, Dr. Al-Marri held many meetings wit a number of officials including the Secretary General of Human Rights Affairs at the Ministry of Justice, and Diplomats of the Greek Minister of Justice. Al Marri also met with Mr. George Stavropoulos, chairman of the Greek National Commission for Human Rights, as well as with Mr. Ioannis Amanaitides, Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs for Cultural, Religious and Human Rights Affairs.
The fourth European tour of Dr. Al Marri comes within the framework of the National Human Rights Committee in Qatar to mobilize more international support to lift the injustice of those affected, explain the conclusions of the UN report on the violations of the blockade to all international organizations, parliaments, and regional and international mechanisms, follow-up with special rapporteurs and address cases of violations reported in the OHCHR’s report. The visit comes within the framework of the human rights movements and the efforts of the National Human Rights Committee for more than 7 months to expose the violations of the countries of the blockade and to urge the states and human rights organizations to act vigorously and take declared positions to put an end to the worst humanitarian crisis in the Gulf region.
This round is especially important because it comes a few days after the publication of the first official United Nations report, after the visit of the OHCHR technical mission to Qatar during the period from 18 to 23 December last year at the request of the National Human Rights Committee , To monitor violations of blockade and to interview those affected.

Dr. Al-Marri: We call on the Qatari government not to engage in any dialogue to resolve the crisis without abolition of arbitrary measures and redress of the victims

Dr. Ali Bin Samih Al Marri, president of Qatar National Human Rights Committee, welcomed the report issued by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) after seven months of the blockade imposed on Qatar, noting that it is the first UN report condemning the arbitrary measures and violations committed by the countries of the blockade, describing these measures as unilateral coercive measures as defined and standardized by the United Nations, calling at the same time for the inclusion of these violations in the report of the High Commissioner to be presented to the next session of the General Assembly of the United Nations in next February.
Al-Marri called on the Qatari government “not to engage in any dialogue or negotiations to resolve the crisis without the elimination of arbitrary measures, compensation of victims”, stressing the need to “raise the impacts of the blockade before the UN General Assembly, the Security Council, the International Court of Justice”.
This came during a press conference held at the headquarters of the National Human Rights Committee in Doha, during which Dr. Al Marri launched the report prepared by the High Commissioner following the visit of the OHCHR technical mission to Doha during the period from 18 to 23 November 2017. Al-Marri pointed out that the OHCHR team met with representatives of 20 governmental and non-governmental organizations. The team also met with 40 persons who filed complaints at the National Human Rights Committee.
“This report affirms, in a non-interpretive manner, that the measures adopted by the countries of the blockade are arbitrary and unilateral and explicitly violate international law, the principles of international relations and human rights conventions” said Al Marri. The report also criticized the measures taken by the countries of the blockade and stated that there is no evidence of any legal decisions motivating the various measures taken, and due to the lack of any legal recourse for most individuals concerned, these measures can be considered as arbitrary.
Al Marri “The report confirmed that the measures taken by the countries of the blockade do not distinguish between the government and civilians, especially the holders of Qatari nationality, and that this is dangerous. The economic impact of the embargo also amounts to economic wars. ”
“The report stressed the negative and dangerous impact of unilateral measures on individuals and the psychological impact on the population. This has been exacerbated by campaigns of incitement, media defamation and hate campaigns against Qatar, its leadership and its people. On the other hand, the report affirms positively that the government of Qatar has not taken any reprisals against the citizens of the countries of blockade operating in Qatar, and did not deal or reciprocate on the violations.
Al-Marri made eight recommendations to the OHCHR, including “to move further at all levels of international human rights mechanisms and the United Nations Human Rights Council, to raise the issue of the impacts of the blockade in the report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights at the next session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, to address specialized international organizations such as the International Labor Organization, UNESCO, WTO and ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) to share information and promote the complaints against the countries of the blockade, call on the United Nations special rapporteurs to act promptly to address the issues of the victims of the blockade and to visit the countries of the blockade and to include the impacts of the blockade in their reports to the Human Rights Council, to invite the technical mission to visit the countries of the blockade to identify the impacts of the blockade on their citizens and citizens of the State of Qatar, and to include the impacts of the blockade in the General Report of the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
On the other hand, the President of the National Committee for Human Rights made six recommendations to the Government of the State of Qatar, including to accept any solution to the crisis or any negotiations before lifting the violations and injustice and redress for the victims, the need to refer to the report of the Technical Mission in supporting complaints before the World Trade Organization, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and UNESCO, to move and raise the issue in international and regional forums to lift the injustice suffered by the victims, to move at the level of the Human Rights Council to present a draft resolution on the impacts of the blockade on citizens and residents of the State of Qatar, to move and raise the issue in before the General Assembly of the United Nations and the Security Council, access to the International Court of Justice, arbitration committees and national and international specialized courts, the need to bring some of the perpetrators of defamation and hatred campaign launched against Qatar from the countries of the blockade to justice, including the Adviser to the Royal Court in KSA, who was orchestrating the media campaign against Qatar for the crimes of hostility and incitement in violation of international law and domestic laws; noting that the NHRC monitors and reports all the defamation and hatred campaigns lunched by that official and the officials of the countries of the blockade to carry out legal movements, and to call on the national compensation claims commission to expedite the proceedings of litigation and international arbitration and depending on the report of the mission to facilitate the role of the appointed International Law Office.
Al-Marri made 6 recommendations to the countries of the blockade, including to deal positively and immediately with the findings of the report of the technical mission of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the abolition of all unilateral arbitrary measures, to respect for its obligations under international human rights law and the immediate lifting of violations and redress of victims, to allow the technical mission to conduct their visits and to observe closely the effects of the measures taken on the citizens of these countries and the citizens and residents of the State of Qatar, to allow field visits of special rapporteurs and international human rights organizations, to allow victims to resort to national justice and litigation procedures to recover their rights, and the immediate cessation of defamation and hatred campaign and provocative calls and accountability of the perpetrators.
In conclusion of the press conference, Dr. Ali addressed the future steps to be taken by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, including to convene a meeting with the Department of Special Procedures of the Commission to hand over the cases to the UN Special Rapporteurs, each according to its competence, information to be provided to some specialized international organizations, such as the International Labor Organization, and The Commission to hold a meeting with the diplomatic missions of the countries of the blockade at the United Nations in Geneva to inform them of the report and cases and try to find solutions
As for the steps to be taken by the National Human Rights Committee, circulation of the report to all international organizations and the global alliance of national human rights institutions and discuss with them a mechanism for action at the national, regional and international levels, to circulate the report to all international parliaments, to circulate the report to the human rights mechanisms of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the League of Arab States and the Gulf Cooperation Council, to present the findings of the report in the proceedings of the Human Rights Council and the United Nations human rights mechanisms, to follow-up on the cases with United Nations special rapporteurs, each according to its competence, and to follow-up on the cases with specialized international organizations such as the International Labor Organization (ILO) and UNESCO.

Dr. Ali bin Samikh Al Marri, president of the National Human Rights Committee, participated in the extraordinary meeting of the the Executive Committee of the Arab Network of National Human Rights Institutions in Amman, Jordan to discuss the human rights situation in the occupied Palestinian territories, to come out with a clear position and a unified plan of action to support and protect the rights of the Palestinian people in accordance with the international legal mechanisms. In his speech at the meeting, Al-Marri said that the decision of the American administration to regard Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli occupation state violates resolutions of the UN Security Council, the UN General Assembly, the International Court of Justice and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Dr. Al-Marri said that this decision constitutes a grave violation of human rights, as it will undoubtedly entail a violation of a package of individual and collective rights of the Palestinian people living under the scourge of the occupation. Dr. Al-Marri appreciated the just and courageous decision taken by the UN General Assembly on Thursday, December 21, in which 128 members voted in favor to nine against, which calls on everyone not to change the character of Jerusalem, its status or its demographic structure, and affirms that any other decision shall be null and void and has no legal effect, which is considered a historic position against the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In his speech, the President of the National Human Rights Committee pointed out that the legitimate resistance of the Palestinian people against the brutal Israeli occupation is an inherent human right and that the right to self-determination of peoples is one of the fundamental principles of international law, including the right to have an independent state “Palestine”. Dr. Al-Marri urged all organizations, specialized agencies and United Nations organizations to continue to support the Palestinian people and to assist them in achieving their right to self-determination as soon as possible. The President of the National Human Rights Committee also called on the international community to take serious and speedy action to end the Israeli occupation that began in 1967 based on the relevant UN resolutions. While respecting and maintaining the unity, and integrity of the entire occupied Palestinian territory, including the city of Jerusalem. At the end of his speech, Al-Marri also stressed the necessity of continuing material and moral support and diplomatic mobilization for the Palestinian cause and the historic rights of the brotherly Palestinian people. The Arab Network of National Institutions shall organize an international conference in Algeria on the situation of human rights in the occupied territories, which aims to affirm the legal status of the occupied land, call for the occupying state to apply the provisions of international humanitarian law and international human rights law to the population and the land it occupies, and to investigate the criminal responsibility of the occupying Power and its leaders for violations of international law, as well as the obstacles to achieving the 2030 SDGs under occupation, and the strategies and options that international law provides for the Palestinians, especially after the status of Palestine as a non-member state of the United Nations.

We Call on the Human Rights Council to appoint a special rapporteur on the repercussions of the blockade.

We call on the Human Rights Council, the International Union of Parliamentarians and the European Parliament to pass resolutions to consider imposing blockade as a crime against humanity.

Imposing blockade on peoples is a crime used as a political leverage to achieve despicable purposes.

We call on Goodwill ambassadors to lead an international initiative against imposing blockade on peoples to mobilize international support.

Members of the Italian House of Representatives confirmed their support for the position of their government in support of Kuwaiti mediation and the principle of dialogue to address the Gulf crisis. While the NHRC expected to issue a draft resolution by the Italian Parliament to demand that their government take a firm stand condemning the blockade and demanding its immediate lifting. Dr. Al Marri called on the United Nations General Assembly to issue a global declaration against imposing blockade on peoples and not to involve civilians in any political disputes, in addition to calling on the Human Rights Council, the International Union of Parliamentarians and the European Parliament to adopt resolutions to perpetuate imposing blockade on peoples. This came in a statement to the press by Dr. Ali bin Samikh Al-Marri, president of Qatar National Human Rights Committee following a hearing held at the Italian Parliament, at the invitation of the House of Representatives, in Wednesday, 13 December, in the presence of The Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the Italian Republic, Ambassador Abdulaziz Bin Ahmed Al Malki, in addition to the presence of other members of the House of Representatives; in which Dr. Al Marri gave copies of the latest reports prepared by the NHRC on the violations reported since the beginning of the crisis; warning of the serious repercussions resulting from the continuation of the blockade while gnoring all international calls and rights, in the absence of any will to resolve the crisis.

Calling on a global declaration against imposing blockade on peoples:

Dr. Al Marri called on the United Nations General Assembly to issue a global declaration against imposing blockade on the peoples and not to involve civilians in political disputes, in parallel with his call on the Human Rights Council, the International Union of Parliamentarians and the European Parliament to make urgent decisions; stressing that the condemnation of the blockade imposed on Qatar is a condemnation of international crimes and collective punishment against the people.

International initiative against imposing blockade on the peoples:

Dr. Al Marri called on launching an international initiative against imposing blockade on the peoples aimed at shedding light on this crime, which has become a pattern of behavior prevailing in times of war and conflict and political practice pursued by some countries to achieve despicable purposes, pointing out that the initiative will rely on goodwill ambassadors to bring International support. He also called on the Human Rights Council to appoint a special rapporteur on the repercussions of the blockade on the enjoyment of human rights; stressing the need to carry out an international uprising against imposing blockade on the peoples.

Successive human rights triumphs of the NHRC:

The hearing held by the President of the NHRC, and direct meeting with members of the legislative authority, the highest authority in the Italian democratic system, is another success added to the series of human rights triumphs achieved by the NHRC since the beginning of the blockade. A hearing in the Italian Parliament reflects the interest of the House of Representatives in discussing the blockade crisis on Qatar and, therefore, the solidarity of the Italian people through its deputies in Parliament, as well as the Italian Government with the State of Qatar. The hearing comes after a series of meetings held by Dr. Ali bin Smaikh with deputies of the Italian parliament, in Rome. He also met with representatives of Italian human rights organizations and media organizations.
The President of the National Human Rights Committee met last November in Doha with a delegation of the Italian Senate and the Italian Parliament headed by MP Col. Marco Farco, where he gave a comprehensive explanation of the grave humanitarian impact caused by the blockade and the growing humanitarian crisis caused by its prolongation.
