A comedy of headless ghouls !!!!
.... Those acting on behalf of the commission have repeatedly shown that they do not respect the people’s right of privacy, and they engage in practices that are objectionable such as chasing and assaulting people and forcing segregation between men and women.
The commission’s executive bylaws contain some provisions that fail to consider human rights issues that are acknowledged around the world. For example, commission members, pursuant to Article 13 of the executive bylaws, may interfere with a person’s private property rights, which clearly violates Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 and the first and second paragraphs of Article 14 of the Arab Charter On Human Rights of 2004.
Further, the commission’s practice ignores the international covenants of human rights regarding the guarantees of the accused during investigation, as according to Article 22 of the commission’s executive bylaws, the latter may investigate without the presence of the guarantees set forth in the Law of Criminal Procedure.
This certainly violates Article 11 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 13 of the Arab Charter On Human Rights. Furthermore, the commission’s members use force during investigation and inspection, which is against not only international human rights treaties but also the regulations of the Kingdom.......
