55 Network, Alliance and Organization for human rights from (13) Arab countries demand an international investigation of war crimes, aggression, and in Yemen

Human rights organizations in the Arab world call upon the Human Rights Council to investigate the human rights crimes and violations committed by the Saudi aggression in Yemen, which has been going on for 190 days.

These organizations are expressing support for the Dutch proposal seeking a resolution by this Council to form an international commission of inquiry to investigate war crimes and aggression committed in Yemen.

The undersigning organizations share with the Netherlands its deep concerns of the continuation of human rights violations in Yemen. Feeling the size of the great suffering of the Yemeni people, the Dutch and we welcome the draft resolution, which calls for the formation of an international investigation committee, hoping this project would be approved in your honorable Council.

The undersigned organizations have expressed in various ways about the concerns of human rights activists on the appointment of the Saudi ambassador at the head of the Committee of Experts of Human Rights Council, especially that Saudi Arabia’s record on human rights is bad and terrifying, what Saudi Arabia still practices various forms of systematic discrimination against citizens in law and in practical process and in particular towards the rights of women, immigrants and foreign workers, minorities and others.
