Chairman of the National Committee for Human Rights Ali Bin Smaikh Al-Marri said the committee has been monitoring, documenting and disseminating information regarding humanitarian cases affected by the Gulf crisis and the blockade imposed on the State of Qatar.
Speaking during the General Assembly meeting of the Arab Network for National Human Rights Institutions in Algeria, Al-Marri said the committee had received 2,084 complaints from residents and 3,600 complaints from citizens regarding violations caused by the blockade imposed on Qatar.
The inhuman embargo has caused several human rights violations in the State of Qatar, most notably the right to family reunification
“Arbitrary actions and decisions have also prevented hundreds of students from completing their studies, which constitutes a flagrant violation of the right to education, as well as the loss and destruction of hundreds of camels and livestock, and the denial of ownership,” he added.
The gulf region was hit with tension when on 5 June Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut ties with Qatar on the grounds of “its support for terrorism”, an accusation that Doha vehemently denies.
