Redline of human rights principles should not be crossed: Marri

CHAIRMAN of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) Dr Ali bin Smaikh al Marri said the blockade countries violated the basic principles of human rights, which may affect the stability and security of the region and threaten international peace and security.
Dr Marri, who is visiting Washington, said the principles of human rights are redlines that should not be crossed, no matter how much the differences at the political level. He called on United Nations (UN) agencies and international organisations to act quickly to contain these violations so that the humanitarian situation will not worsen.
He added that the US administration and other countries must stop the violations before talking about political mediation and solutions, and put the human rights file on the priority of political agendas, calling for the need not to prolong the tragedy of people under any pretext.
He pointed out that the NHRC has affirmed in many international forums about the equation of integration between respect for human dignity and the need for security stability.
Dr Marri stressed that Qatar did not block the satellite channels of the blockade countries and that it does not reciprocate in the areas of violations because the issue of the respect of the principles of human rights is firmly established in democratic countries, adding that"what we do not accept for our people cannot be accepted for other peoples".
He also extended an open invitation to all media representatives and press personalities in Washington to attend the international conference to be organised by the NHRC on July 24 and 25 in Doha, under the theme 'Freedom of Expression: Towards Confronting Risk'.
