The National Human Rights Committee of the State of Qatar welcomes the establishment of the Compensation Claims Committee that aims to receive complaints and seek compensation for damages and losses resulting from the siege. NHRC considers it an important step in redressing victims and achieving the reparation for the violations as provided for in international and regional human rights conventions.
NHRC shall forward all complaints received from the victims to the Compensation Committee.
Accordingly, NHRC calls upon the citizens and residents who have sought its assistance since the beginning of the siege on Qatar to follow up with the Compensation Committee located at DDCC “Doha Exhibition and Convention Center” in Dafna.
NHRC emphasizes that it shall continue its work, condemn and call on lifting the siege, address and raise the resulting violations to the international contractual and non-contractual mechanisms in the United Nations, the competent international agencies and other international organizations.
