UAI statement on UN Human Rights Council decision on Yemen

UAI is shocked by the decision of the UN Human Rights Council not to renew the mandate of the independent international mechanism, known as the Group of Eminent Experts, investigating claims of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Yemen.

We fully support the position taken by Mwatana for Human Rights, a highly respected organisation in Yemen and call on the UN Secretary General and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights rapidly to identify alternative ways of holding perpetrators of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Yemen to account.
