Yemen: Amnesty International response to the Saudi Arabia-led coalition’s investigations

, Index number: MDE 31/5494/2017

The Saudi Arabia-led coalition’s investigative mechanism, the Joint Incidents Assessment Team (JIAT), published a series of legal conclusions in August, October and December 2016 surrounding specific air strike incidents where concerns have been raised that international humanitarian law (IHL) may have been breached. Amnesty International has reviewed all publically available legal and factual conclusions and in response, has written today to Lieutenant General Mansour Ahmed Al-Mansour, legal advisor to the JIAT, to express the organization’s concern the JIAT’s investigations appear to be falling short of international standards including those of transparency, independence, impartiality and effectiveness.
