The National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) has welcomed the release of Qatari citizen Mohsen Saleh Saadoun Al Korbi, who was arbitrarily detained by the Saudi Arabia authorities since April 21, 2018, and was deprived of his most basic rights to contact his family or lawyer.
His family was also unable to know the place of his detention specifically, nor the charges made against him.
In a statement issued Monday, the NHRC said that it has been in constant contact with UN bodies, international organizations and the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to demand the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to inform the Qatari citizen's whereabouts and to release him.
The Committee called on the Saudi authorities to compensate the Qatari citizen for the harm he suffered during his enforced disappearance.
The National Human Rights Committee also called on the Saudi authorities to immediately release Qatari student Abdulaziz Saeed Abdulla, who has been arbitrarily detained in Saudi prisons since July 2018 without trial.
The Committee called upon UN bodies and international organizations to conduct extensive investigations into Saudi authorities' gross and systematic violations and discriminatory measures against Qatari citizens.
In its statement, the National Human Rights Committee also called on the Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism and the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to take swift measures to release the Qatari student arbitrarily detained by the Saudi authorities.
