Arab rights body to review Bahrain report
Manama, February 17, 2013
Bahrain will take part in a meeting of the Cairo-based Arab Commission for Human Rights (ACHR) which will review the Kingdom's first report on its implementation of the provisions of the ACHR.
Minister of State for Human Rights Affairs Dr Salah Ali will lead the kingdom's delegation which will include representatives from the ministries of interior, foreign affairs, labour, health, justice, education and social development, as well as the Public Prosecution, our sister newspaper, the Gulf Daily News reported.
Dr Ali praised the patriotic efforts of the work team in charge of preparing the kingdom's report, noting that it was professional and highlighted Bahrain's landmark civilisational achievements, human rights strides and what has been accomplished so far regarding its pledges, which entitles it to be a global human rights leader.
The minister said the review will offer the kingdom an opportunity to inform brotherly Arab countries about the efforts of the government to continue the reform project launched by His Majesty King Hamad more than a decade ago.
Dr Ali explained that ACHR will review the report because Bahrain is a party to the Arab Charter of Human Rights, adopted during the summit held in Tunis on May 23, 2004. – TradeArabia News Service
