The Yemeni Alliance for Monitoring Human Rights Violations has demanded for the country-office of the UN High Commission for Refugees to be relocated from Sana'a to the government-controlled city of Aden- Yemen's temporary capital.
In a speech he delivered today in the UN Human Rights Council, Hani al-Aswadi, a member of the alliance, called on the UNHRC to play its part in propping up the capacity of Yemen's CSOs, saying they are deficient in capacity and technicality.
(Our) Alliance tracks and documents human rights violations, a useful thing for the future to do justice for the victims and a noble goal we pursue.
He called on the UNHRC to help in capacity building for the National Investigative Committee on Human Rights Abuse Claims citing the committee's accomplishment of investigation into 392 claims during the period 2015-2017 and investigation of some of abused reported from 2011, the year of peaceful protests against Saleh's regime.
"Despite the progressive improvement in its activities, the committee is still faced with security and political challenges preventing it from accessing flashpoint areas of violations. Besides, technical support it ever gets is still poor."
