EXPEL SAUDI ARABIA from the UN Human Rights Council

  • by: Anonymous

Saudi Arabia to its 47-nation Human Rights Council, for the 2017-2019 term.

By bombing schools and hospitals in Yemen, while at home subjugating women, trampling religious freedom, oppressing minorities, and imprisoning innocent human rights activist and blogger Raif Badawi, Saudi Arabia.

And it should be placed in Saudi Arabia in 2015 at the head of the committee that selects a human rights expert. For Saudi Arabia to decide who will be an investigator on violence against women or arbitration detention is asking the fox to guard the henhouse.

Article 8 of the Council's founding resolution may be removed for gross and systematic violations of human rights. More than ever, it's time to finally remove Saudi Arabia.

The UN recently voted for the re-election of Saudi Arabia to its 47-nation Human Rights Council for the 2017-2019 term.

By bombing schools and hospitals in Yemen while subjecting women to her own country, trampling on freedom of religion, oppressing minorities, and imprisoning innocent human rights defenders and the blogger Raif Badawi, Saudi Arabia has demonstrated why the UN should NEVER have elected this oppressive regime.

And in 2015, Saudi Arabia should never have been the head of the committee that chooses the UN's human rights experts. To allow Saudi Arabia to decide who will investigate violence against women and arbitrary detention is to ask the fox to look after the hen house.

Article 8 of the Council's founding resolution states that Member States may be removed for abject and systematic violations of human rights. More than ever, it is high time to remove Saudi Arabia.
