UN Human Rights Council Yet Again Fails Yemeni Civilians

Oxfam International

WASHINGTON - In reaction to today’s UN Human Rights Council decision not to set up an independent inquiry to investigate human rights violations by all sides to the conflict in Yemen, Sajjad Mohammed Sajid, Oxfam Country Director in Yemen, said:

“It is unacceptable that, after 18 months of conflict in Yemen, the Human Rights Council is still failing to protect Yemeni civilians and is instead turning a blind eye to the human rights violations perpetrated by all parties to the conflict.
