The other countries due for review in the two-week session in February are Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Britain, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, Finland, India, Indonesia, Morocco, the Netherlands, Philippines, Poland South Africa and Tunisia. Each year, 48 countries will be subjected to the procedure which requires governments to deliver a self-assessment of the human rights situation in their countries but also takes into account views of independent experts and non-governmental groups.


The Minster of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Nizar bin Sadeq Al Baharna held a meeting lawmakers, civil society organisations and legal experts on Wednesday who presented their views on the report. Dr Al Baharna said the report reflected the Kingdom’s commitment to promote human rights through best practices. A timetable for the review of all 192 members was prepared on Friday through a selection by drawing lots. The review is slated to be complete by 2011.
