The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention (WGAD), which visited Qatar recently, has heaped huge praise on Qatar for its commitment to respect and protect human rights.
The WGAD team praised Qatar’s invitation to the team and for assisting them during their several days of work.
In its report, presented by members Elina Steinerte and Roland Adjovi at a press conference on Thursday, the UN body said Qatar by inviting the WGAD team, represents an important model for the states of the region. The Working Group has not received a similar positive response to its requests to visit many countries in the region.
“The quick acceptance of the Qatari government is a tangible expression of Qatar’s commitment to respect and protect human rights and the team highly appreciates this and appreciates the cooperation it has received during the visit,” the report said.
The WGAD team also described Qatar’s recent accession to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) as a major achievement, while stressing that implementation of the ICCPR is essential so far.
The report praised the efforts of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC), saying its establishment in 2002 was an important step in the protection of human rights.
The report called on the governments to cooperate proactively, especially with regard to the implementation of its recommendations.
