A lawsuit against the United Arab Emirates has been filed by Qatar, at the International Court of Justice, for violating human rights, As per Qatar’s Foreign Ministry
“As set forth in detail in Qatar’s application to the International Court, the UAE led these actions, which have had a devastating effect on the human rights of Qataris and residents of Qatar”
Qatar requested the court to bar the United Arab Emirates from various activities as Qataris are being discriminating in UAE, plus restraining their freedom of speech and inflaming hatred against them, the example is shutting down Qatar’s state-funded Al Jazeera television and blocking transmission of Qatari media outlets.
Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said.
“Today’s application is the first step in bringing an end to these violations and to restoring the basic rights of the many Qataris harmed by the UAE’s actions.”
UAE bureaucrats could not instantly be reached for comment. Cases at the ICJ usually take years to complete. Nevertheless, requests for Qatar are dealt with speed.
Associations between Qatar and UAE have been tense since June 2017, when diplomatic and trade ties with Doha were served by Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain blaming it of association with terrorist groups.
