Saudi Arabia: Joint NGO Statement: Suspend Saudi Arabia from the UN Human Rights Council

, Index number: MDE 23/4345/2016

We call upon the United Nations General Assembly to immediately suspend the membership rights of Saudi Arabia in the UN Human Rights Council. General Assembly Resolution 60/251, which created the Human Rights Council, provides that “the General Assembly, by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, may suspend the rights of membership in the Council of a member of the Council that commits gross and systematic violations of human rights.”
