US delegation meets NHRC officials in Doha

National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) Vice-Chairman, Dr. Mohammed bin Saif Al Kuwari, and Assistant Secretary-General, Sultan bin Hassan Al Jamali, met with a delegation of senior researchers and politicians in the US Congress.

The US delegation’s visit to the committee was aimed at encouraging the work of national human rights institutions, non-governmental organisations and community organisations to provide support and assistance to people whose rights may be violated.

The meeting dealt with the role of media in providing support to vulnerable people, including workers’ category, as well as the role of NHRC in spreading culture of human rights and its working methods in receiving complaints and facilitating access to petitioners, whether through physical appearance, through the offices of the communities it established, or via its hotlines and official website, as well as its role in addressing human rights violations resulting from the blockade.
