Doha, September 07(SHARQ DAILY): NHRC Chairman, H.E. Dr Ali Bin Smaikh Al-Marry has welcomed the Emiri decision issued by HH the Deputy Emir and Heirapparent, SH Tamim Ben Hamad Al-Thani on the increase of basic salary, social allowance and pensions for employees and retirees of Qatari civilians and military personnel, working in the state describing it as coming in conformity with the wise leadership’s standing policy of promoting Human Rights in the country through providing decent living to Qatari citizens in light of the economic boom the country is witnessing at present.
In an exclusive interview with the Arabic daily ‘al-Sharq", Dr. Marry said such enlighted decisions are typical of the country’s wise leadership that is always focusing on ensuring their citizens’ best welfare and decent living; it is also heartening to see that the wise leadership were equally mindful of the pensioners who form a sizable section of society.
From his position as NHRC chairman, Dr. Al-Marry said that the decision will further enhance citizens trust in their jobs and sends a clear message to the people from their wise leadership, that they (the leaders) are always keen to provide citizens with utmost protection possible to Qataris in all fields in light of the decent and prosperous living they have always enjoyed. The timing of the decision, H.E. added, is perfect as it coincides with resuming duties after the Eid holidays, which H.E. asserted, will reflect positively on employers’ performance.
