“The Blockade of Qatar One Year On: Violations of Human Rights and Coercive measures”

6th June 2018

At a press conference today, Sian Reeves introduced and moderated the launch of an expert report by Professors William Schabas and John Dugard, “The Blockade of Qatar One Year On: Violations of Human Rights and Coercive measures”.

The report was brought out today on the first anniversary of the air, land and sea and economic blockade imposed on Qatar by Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt.  The blockade has been widely condemned, and the human rights violations that have arisen as a result have been highlighted by many bodies including the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
