السفير أبو سعيد يرسل بيانه على هامش ندوة العهد الدولي الخاص بالحقوق المدنية والسياسية: الحل بمقاربة بين الشرعتين الدينية والمدنية 

Editing Office- Geneva 

 

من الصعب في مكان تطبيق المساواة بين الرجل والمرأة في الدول التي تنتهج نظاماً دينياً لنظام الحكم فيها، وبالتالي فإن الجزء الثاني الفقرة الثالثة بحاجة لدمج بين القانونين المدني الذي نتبعه والديني الذي يحكم بعض الدول..

علاوة على ذلك ، إذا أخذنا الضربات الأمريكية الأخيرة حيث أظهر الناس أننا ندرك أيضًا التعصب الكامل والعنصرية التي حدثت على مرأى من العالم ، فإننا ندرك أن القوانين لا تزال غير قابلة للتنفيذ ورأينا أن الجزء 2 ، المادة 4 ، مائلة لا توجد قوانين (1،2،3) من العهد الدولي الخاص بالحقوق المدنية والسياسية.

فيما يتعلق بالحق في الحياة المنصوص عليه في الفقرة السيادية من الباب الثالث ، المادة السادسة ، فإن المشهد اليمني اليوم الذي يتصدر جميع أنواع الاعتداءات إلى جانب الأداء الإجرامي للأطراف المتناحرة المعنية في الأزمة ، نشهد كل يوم أن الحياة لا قيمة لهم وأن مصير الناس يعتمد على سياسات أفقية شخصية وفردية ، والأشخاص الذين تحتها يدفعون أبشع أنواع الفواتير السياسية لتلك البلدان المتصارعة.

والمشكلة التي لا يمكن حلها في ظل هذه الظروف هي إجراءات الإعدام والتعليق التي تتبعها الدول الإسلامية والتي تدخل في نطاق الشريعة الإسلامية. وبناءً عليه نقترح تشكيل لجنة متخصصة لوضع قوانين مشتركة بين الشركتين ، دينية ومدنية ، تبدأ أولاً بعنوان عمليات الإعدام ، ثم الوصول إلى بقية عناوين العلاقة فيما بعد. بدون هذا الإجراء ، ستظل قضية القانون الدولي لحقوق الإنسان تدور حول دوامة ونضال كبير من أجل التطبيق الصحيح الذي يصب في النهاية في مصلحة الإنسان.

هناك أيضًا الجزء الثالث ، الفقرتان (5) و (6) (7) من القانون السالف الذكر الذي لا يسمح مطلقًا بإعدام الأشخاص دون سن الثامنة عشرة أو فرض أشد العقوبات ، والقانون الدولي أيضًا تمامًا يحظر.

واختتم السفير أبو سعيد بيانه بالإشارة إلى أن بعض دول الشرق الأوسط ترتكب انتهاكات جسيمة للقانون ، ويجري بحث دور الدول في تنفيذه. إذا أردنا أن نلقي الضوء على بعض دول الشرق الأوسط ، فلا يمكننا التغاضي في سوريا واليمن عن كيفية تجنيد الأطفال ، ناهيك عن لجان التحالف العربي بقيادة السعودية ضد الأطفال والنساء بالقصف الجوي ، وماذا؟ قوات الأمن العراقية تفعل ضد المتظاهرين السلميين.

ومن المهم أن نشير إلى أن هناك حراك سلمي غير سلمي يقوم بموجبه الأخير بعمل تخريبي ضد الممتلكات العامة والخاصة ، وتتصدى له الجهات الأمنية. هنا لا يمكن أن نلوم الشرطة أو ندينها ، بل الخطوط التي ألقيت في المظاهرات.

International Human Rights Commission: disappointment in the Emirati-Israeli agreement

Geneva Office 

The International Human Rights Commission considered that the announcement of the Emirati and Israeli agreement, despite the alleged clauses in it, which ostensibly give a kind of temporary armistice, but this agreement is marred by multiple defects, according to what was confirmed by the Middle East Ambassador and Special Envoy of the Commission and the International Council of the United Nations in Geneva, Dr. Haitham Abu Said, That is, the agreement is with a party that is angry with the rights of the Palestinians, and the case is filed with the International Criminal Court, and this is an attempt to circumvent the laws by the Israeli entity, as the UAE is an Arab and Islamic state, which gives the entity the right to claim false allegations of the approach taken by the International Criminal Court.

Also, this entity is known to be defrauding through the agreements it concludes and lacks in it after the availability of data in its favor in order to continue its repressive policy against the Arab and Islamic world. Ambassador Abu Said concluded that communication is open with the staff of the Commission and the International Council in order to establish a working paper for the next session in the forty-fifth session, where the approach to criminal cases against Israel is clear and its twisting policy in human rights issues.

Six years after genocide, international community must prioritize justice for Yazidi community 

Editing Office - Geneva 

3 August 2020Peace and Security

Six years after ISIL launched a genocidal campaign against the Yazidi religious minority in Iraq, the international community must live up to its promise to deliver justice, survivor and Nobel Peace Laureate Nadia Murad told a virtual event on Monday marking the anniversary.

The young human rights activist, who was among thousands of Yazidi women forced into sexual slavery by the terrorist group, reminded countries that the impacts of its atrocities endure to this day.Outrage and inactionMs. Murad said although 100,000 Yazidis have returned to their homeland in Sinjar, in northern Iraq, they lack vital services such as healthcare and education. 

Meanwhile, scores more remain in camps, nearly 3,000 kidnapped women and girls are still missing, and dozens of mass graves have yet to be exhumed.“The world watched in outrage and demanded that tangible action be taken to end the genocide. But six years later, the international community has failed to keep its commitments to protect those most vulnerable, especially women and children,” said Ms. Murad, who now lives in Germany.Justice is possible nowThe commemorative event was held to ensure the world never forgets how ISIL, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as Da’esh, tried to erase the Yazidi community through sexual violence, mass executions, forced conversion and other crimes.It was co-hosted by Nadia’s Initiative, an organization founded by Ms. Murad, alongside Germany and the United Arab Emirates. 

ISIL committed “heinous crimes” against all Iraqis, the country’s Ambassador, Mohammad Hussein Ali Bahr Aluloom, told the gathering.“Da’esh tried to wipe out Yazidis in an attempt to destroy Iraqi diversity and peaceful coexistence that is guaranteed by our constitution,” he stated.Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney recalled that the international community established tribunals for genocides in Germany, Bosnia and Rwanda, while the International Criminal Court is currently investigating crimes against Rohingya in Myanmar.She told diplomats Yazidi survivors deserve no less.“Doing nothing is not only wrong, it is dangerous because these fighters are not going anywhere and their toxic ideology continues to spread,” said Ms. Clooney.“And justice is possible now, just as it has been possible before, if only it is made a priority.”Resolve differences nowThe UN’s top official in Iraq urged the authorities in Baghdad and in the autnomous Kurdish region in the north to resolve their differences to better support the Yazidis.“Stable governance and security structures are crucial foundations for the community to rebuild and thrive,” said Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI).“So, once again, I call on the governments in Baghdad and Erbil to urgently resolve this file, placing Sinjaris’ interests first and foremost.”Support Iraqi draft lawTwo years ago, the United Nations established an Investigative Team to Promote Accountability for Crimes Committed by Da’esh/ISIL, known by the acronym UNITAD. 

 Special Adviser Karim Khan outlined some of its activities, which include helping with exhumations, collecting evidence, and working with various authorities in Iraq to better understand Da’esh criminal networks.However, he explained that UNITAD is “an investigative team on the lookout for a court” so that fair trials for crimes against the Yazidis can be held.Mr. Khan commended a draft law presented in November which would allow Iraq to prosecute acts committed by Da’esh as genocide, crimes against humanity or war crimes.“In my respectful view, this is critically important. If we don’t call it for what it was; if we don’t label the crimes correctly, we are doomed, or at least there is a real risk they may reoccur,” he said.“And I think in terms of giving confidence to the Yazidi community, the courage and the stamina of the international community to create that piece of legal architecture would go a long way.”

This is to inform the public on the bad attitudes of Mr. Rafal Marcin Wasik who claim to remove us on July 10, 2020. The fact is that we have resigned from this NGO'S on June 16, 2020 when we reach some sensitive information as you may see the link ( https://intl-news-agency-for-human-rights-inhr.webnode.com/… ) 

Moreover, Mr. Rafal and his ihrc in (Czeck Republic claim to be a diplomat where he is issuing ID's with this status: it is very important to advise those who are using or might be under such to be aware of it as this is against the international laws and norms (Vienna convention 61 and 63).

Amb. Bou-Said received a UNA/USA Presidential letter 

Editing Office - Geneva 

Dear Amb. Haissam, 

For over seven decades, the United Nations has remained a critical forum to which the U.S. has repeatedly turned to advance its interests, promote its values, and spread the financial, military, and technical burdens of confronting transnational challenges.In 2015, all 193 member-states adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, creating the world’s largest—and most important—to-do list. In order to achieve these ambitious goals by 2030, we need to ensure that the UN is fully funded and supported.However, over the last few years, the Administration has attempted to cut funding for the UN, threatening both the country’s leadership on a global stage and the ability to work toward a more sustainable world. We can’t let this continue. 
It’s important that we remind lawmakers that fully funding the UN is a necessary and critical investment for the U.S.—it also happens to be a tremendous bargain as our dues to the UN only accounts for .2% of the federal budget.The world needs the UN, and the UN needs us. 

 Sincerely, 

Rachel Bowen Pittman 

Executive Director, UNA-USA

World Economic Situation and Prospects (WESP) report 

Editing Office - NEW YORK 

16 January 2020 

Energy transition and the global economyThe global economy has suffered a significant slowdown amid prolonged trade disputes and wide-ranging policy uncertainties. While a slight uptick in economic activity is forecast for 2020, the World Economic Situation and Prospects 2020 warns that economic risks remain strongly tilted to the downside, aggravated by deepening political polarization and increasing scepticism over the benefits of multilateralism. 

These risks could inflict severe and long-lasting damage on development prospects. They also threaten to encourage a further rise in inward-looking policies, at a point when global cooperation is paramount."To live in shared prosperity within the capacity of our planet to support us, we must move away from carbon and resource-intensive industries, materials and value chains. We must instead prioritize sustainable consumption and production—a way of life that enables economic growth, while ensuring planetary protection."- António GuterresSecretary-General of the United NationsCompounding the economic slowdown, rising global temperatures and the increasing frequency and intensity of weather-related shocks press home the urgent need for a dramatic shift in the global energy mix. 

The World Economic Situation and Prospects 2020 explores the global economic implications of this energy transition. The transition to a cleaner energy mix will bring not only environmental and health benefits, but economic opportunities for many. However, without appropriate policy strategies, the costs and benefits will be unevenly distributed within and between countries.

اللجنة الدولية لحقوق الإنسان: التدخل الغربي في الشأن السوري يعيق الإستقرار فيها /  IHRC News: Western interference in the Syrian issue impedes stability in it 

Editing Office - GENEVA 

في ظل الأوضاع الإقليمية المتأزمة في الشرق الأوسط وبعد الأحداث الأمنية فيها، ترى اللجنة الدولية لحقوق الإنسان أن التدخلات الأميركية الواضحة والمعلنة والدعوات للنزول إلى الشارع من قبل سفيرة أميركا في مجلس الأمن تحت مسمى الإعتراض على الواقع المعيشي، هو أمر مناف للدبلوماسية وخرق لمعاهدة فيينا ٦١/٦٣ التي ترعى الشؤون والقضايا بين الدول المنتسبة للأمم المتحدة والتي وقعت على المعاهدة.

وفي حديث لوكالة الأنباء الدولية لحقوق الإنسان وحول رؤيته للأوضاع بشكل عام أشار مفوض الشرق الأوسط للجنة الدولية ومستشارها لشؤون الامم المتحدة في جنيف السفير الدكتور هيثم ابو سعيد أن الوضع العام في سوريا برغم بعض الانفراجات الأمنية على عدد كبير من المحافظات، أدخلت الولايات المتحدة الأميركية ذراعها مجدداً من خلال الحصار التي تحاول فرضه بشكل قوي تقف وراء المشكلة الإقتصادية في سوريا والنقص في مادة النفظ والغاز ومواد أساسية والتلاعب بالعملة. 

وأشار أن خروج بعض المتظاهرين في السويداء ضمن مطالب محقة لهم لا يعطي ذريعة لتلك التدخلات التي تؤجج الوضع السياسي والأمني دون أن تقدم الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية أي حلّ للشعب السوري سوى الفوضى والدعوة للإنقضاض على الأمن المجتمعي، محدثة بذلك فوضى تحت غطاء الحقوق والموجبات وهذا ما يجب أن لا يسمح به المجتمع الدولي. 

وفي سياق متصل أشار السفير ابو سعيد وجوب قيام الأجهزة الرقابية والوزارات المعنية في الجمهورية العربية السورية تحفيز مطالب الناس كما أشار الرئيس السوري في خطاباته الأخيرة والتي تدعو إلى وجوب تأمين الحاجات الأساسية لهم، وحث المسؤولين مقاربة المعطيات على كافة مندرجاتها بجدية أكثر للحفاظ على وحدة الجغرافيا والاستمرار في محاربة الفساد ومكافحة الارهاب الذي يأخذ اليوم وجه إقتصادي من أجل تدمير سوريا.

المستشار محي البدوي / المكتب الإعلامي

n light of the regional crisis in the Middle East and after the security events in it, the International Human Rights Committee considers that the clear and announced American interventions and calls to take to the streets by the Ambassador of America in the Security Council in the name of objecting to the reality of life, is contrary to diplomacy and violates the Vienna Treaty 61 / 63 which sponsors affairs and issues among the UN member states that have signed the treaty. 

In an interview with the International News Agency for Human Rights about his vision of the situation in general, the Middle East Commissioner and its adviser for UN affairs in Geneva, Ambassador Dr. Haitham Abu Saeed, pointed out that the general situation in Syria despite some security breakthroughs in a large number of governorates, the United States of America entered its arm again Through the blockade, which is trying to impose it strongly, stands behind the economic problem in Syria and the shortage of oil and gas, basic materials and currency manipulation. 

He pointed out that the exit of some demonstrators in As-Suwayda as a valid claim to them does not give an excuse for those interventions that fuel the political and security situation without the United States of America providing any solution to the Syrian people other than chaos and the call to pounce on social security, causing chaos under the cover of rights and obligations, and this is what must Not allowed by the international community.In a related context, Ambassador Abu Saeed pointed out that the supervisory authorities and the relevant ministries in the Syrian Arab Republic must motivate the demands of the people, as the Syrian President indicated in his recent speeches, which calls for the necessity of securing the basic needs for them, and officials urged approaching the data on all its components more seriously to preserve the unity of geography and continuity In the fight against corruption and the fight against terrorism, which today takes an economic face in order to destroy Syria.

 اللجنة الدولية الحقوقية تُحذّر من عودة تنظيم "داعش في الأنبار العراقية

Editing Office - GENEVA

حذّر مفوض الشرق الأوسط للجنة الدولية لحقوق الإنسان ومستشارها لشؤون الأمم المتحدة في جنيف السفير الدكتور هيثم ابو سعيد من عودة تنظيم الدولة الإسلامية "داعش" إلى منطقة الأنبار العراقية والتي بحسب الأخبار الواردة من مكتب اللجنة للعراق أنه شوهد العديد من عنصار تلك المجموعة التخريبية وتتنقّل بشكل عادي وسهل. 

وأشارت المعلومات أن التنظيم يعمل تحت قيادة موحّدة وما زالت أركانه الأساسية في التخطيط والعمل التخريبي موجدة وتعمل ولها تمويل معروف المصدر والهدف أيضا بات واضحاً لجهة خلق آلية ضغط على إيران وعلى حدودها مع العراق خصوصاُ في منطقة "ديالي" الحدودية. 

وطلب السفير أبو سعيد من دول الأربعة التي ما زالت متمسكّة بالإتفاق النووي العمل بجدية في هذا الشأن حيث قد يكون الإتفاق عرضة للتذويب خصوصاً وأن الولايات المتحدة الأميركية تعمل بكل ما لها من قوة للإلتفاف على حلفاء الإتفاق. كما طالب السفير ابو سعيد تدخل المرجعية الدينية لوقف المؤامرة التي يتعرض لها العراق لما لهذا الأمر من خطورة كبيرة على الأمن المجتمعي والحياتي في منطقة الشرق الأوسط.

Enslavement: a ‘shocking indictment’ on our societies 

Editing Office - New York 

When a 15 year old Vietnamese girl, Sao, was tricked by her friend and sold into China to another family, her life was changed forever. Sao fell pregnant to her new husband, gave birth to a baby girl, and was shortly afterwards sold to work in a winter coat factory.A Nigerian girl pregnant with twins after being forced into prostitution in Italy © Alessio RomenziShe eventually found an opportunity to escape back to Vietnam, also managing to rescue a neighbour who was in the same situation. Agonisingly, she was forced to make the heart-breaking decision to leave her little girl behind.Sao’s story – tragically one of 40 million around the globe - was told by Diep Vuong, the president and co-founder of Pacific Links Foundation. She was speaking at a panel discussion with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet last week, focusing on eradicating slavery through the participation of survivors and also through the Sustainable Development Goals. 

 For the last four years, the Pacific Links Foundation has been supported by the UN Voluntary Trust Fund on Contemporary Forms of Slavery.*Worldwide, it is estimated that more than 40 million men, women and children are enslaved. This includes 25 million in forced labour, and 15 million in forced marriage. One in four victims are children.‘Contemporary forms of slavery’ manifest in different ways, including forced labour, forced marriage, other slavery and slavery like practices, and human trafficking. It also covers debt bondage, when a person is tricked into working for little or no pay, with no control over their debt. Essentially, according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO), it refers to ‘situations of exploitation that a person cannot refuse or leave because of threats, violence, coercion, deception, and/or abuse of power.’ “Enslavement is among the gravest and most comprehensive violations of human dignity,” said Bachelet at the panel discussion. “It has been recognised as a crime against humanity. Freedom from slavery is a human right with no derogation permitted, on any basis. The continued enslavement of millions of people is a shocking indictment of all our societies.”

Contemporary slavery often 'invisible and clandestine': UN rights expert 

Editing Office- New York 

As the first ever human rights issue to provoke wide international outrage, slavery is perpetuated by traditional practices such as child and forced marriage, and by the fact that almost half the countries in the world have yet to criminalize it.According to the latest UN figures, 40 million people were living in a state of modern slavery in 2016. 

One in four children are in forced labour, and about 98 per cent of women who are in forced labour have also been subjected to sexual exploitation.Deeply rooted in fear, with victims often “not realizing” they’re enslaved, it becomes "invisible", and "clandestine”, leaving victims unprotected, said Urmila Bhoola, Special Rapporteur on Contemporary Forms of Slavery, who sat down with UN News's Ana Carmo to talk through its causes and consequences.
