The National Human Rights Committee of Qatar welcomes the release of the Qatari citizen Mohsen Saleh Saadoun Al-Karbi, who was denied the most basic rights to communicate with his family or his lawyer while he has been forcibly disappeared in Saudi Arabia since 21 April 2018, during which his family failed to locate his place of detention or know the charge against him.
The National Human Rights Committee was in constant contact with United Nations bodies, international organizations and the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances, and has been demanding that Saudi Arabia reveal the whereabouts of the Qatari citizen and calling for his release.
The National Human Rights committee calls on the Saudi authorities to compensate the Qatari citizen Muhsin Al-Karbi for the harm suffered during his enforced disappearance.
The National Human Rights Committee also demands that the Saudi authorities release the Qatari student, Abdulaziz Saeed Abdullah, who has been arbitrarily detained in Saudi prisons since July 2018, without being brought to trial, and calls on UN agencies and international organizations to conduct extensive investigations into the gross and systematic violations and discriminatory measures against Qatari nationals by Saudi authorities.
The National Human Rights committee also calls on the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism and the United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to take swift and effective actions to release the Qatari student arbitrarily detained by the Saudi authorities.
