GENEVA, 19th September, 2018 (WAM) — A delegation from the Al-Ghufran Tribe, one of the biggest tribes in Qatar, staged a sit-in Wednesday in front of the Broken Chair, which stands across the United Nations Palace in Geneva, to denounce the crimes of the Qatari regime which has revoked their nationality, displaced and tortured members of the tribe.

The tribe called on the international community to take a decisive stand on the Qatari regime, whom, they claim, have violated a number of international conventions and treaties through its racist policy against the Al-Ghufran tribe.


The sit-in comes as part of a wider move by the tribe on the sidelines of the 39th session of the UN Human Rights Council.

They met with Mohammad Al Nsour, Chief of Middle East and North Africa Section at the OHCHR, and submitted a letter detailing the suffering they have been subjected to at the hands of the Qatari authorities since 1996 and the crimes committed by the Qatari regime, including racial discrimination, forced displacement, imprisonment and torture which led to many psychological problems and deaths among the tribe members in the Qatari intelligence jails.

Al-Ghufran tribe is one of the biggest tribes in Qatar, whose legitimate and inalienable rights as Qatari citizens have been denied and violated by Doha since 1996.
