The legal expert Ali al-Tamimi warned on Friday against the return of Iraq to the seventh item by the United Nations, after being removed from the Human Rights Council of the United Nations.
“The Human Rights Council is made up of 47 countries and is linked to the UN General Assembly and follows up on human rights in the world,” Tamimi said in a statement received by Gilgamesh Press.
He pointed out that “one of the most serious types of human rights is the killing of demonstrators or administrative arrests without judicial orders, which is contrary to Article 14 of the Charter of the Covenant and is called (victims of abuse of power).”
He explained, “When these violations occur, the General Assembly violations have the right to refer the matter to the Security Council to take the necessary,” pointing out that “Iraq came out of Chapter VII resolution 2390 of 2017, and has been converted to Chapter VI to resolve problems with Kuwait.”
The legal expert pointed out that “with these breaches as a result of the demonstration, they are a violation of human rights, and therefore the Security Council may decide to return Iraq to Chapter VII or original international and threatening peace and human security.”
On Thursday, Iraq lost its membership as a candidate for the Asia-Pacific region at the UN Human Rights Council. link
