Iraq was recently called upon by the UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances to reveal the fate of Amer Al Kartani, an Iraqi citizen who has been missing for ten years now. 

The undersigned organizations call on Arab governments to accelerate the repatriation of their nationals stranded in northern Syria and Iraq for years, following the example of the repatriation of nationals of other nationalities, especially those of European nationality, repatriated to their countries in recent years. 

Mr. Mahmood Hamid Qaid AL BROUSHI, a young Yemeni detained in Saudi Arabia, is still being held in Dhahban prison in Jeddah and is denied any contact with the outside world, was informed Alkarama from its sources. 

Alkarama has learned that Mr. Adel Abdelmalek, a former gendarme, has been sentenced to eight years in prison by Algeria's military judiciary on fabricated charges according to the victim's family. 

The UN Committee on Enforced Disappearances has called on the Iraqi government to provide clarification regarding the case of Ali Alwan Khalaf AL JANABI, an Iraqi citizen who died following his execution by state authorities in April 2021. 

AL JANABI was missing since his kidnapping on 2 July 2014 from his home located in the Al Askari neighborhood of Al Mazraa in the Latifiya governorate (south of Baghdad) by several members of the army. 

On January 31, 2024, the Association of Victims of Torture in Tunisia (AVTT) and Alkarama submitted to the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detentions (WGAD), the situation of Mr. Bechir AKREMI, magistrate, arbitrarily arrested and held in detention for almost a year today. 

Arrest and continued detention

Alkarama has learned that the Libyan authorities have released Libyan citizen Ali Suleiman Masoud Abdel Sayed last Thursday, 25 January 2024, after more than seven years of arbitrary detention. 

Alkarama expresses its concern about the disappearance of Libyan activist Nasser Fathallah Mansour Ali AL HAWARI in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, since the evening of Monday, January 29, 2024. 

Alkarama for Human Rights highlighted the dire consequences of the “double standards” policies that have unfortunately become a clear feature of most Western states and may ultimately be a greater threat to the values of human rights and peace in the world.
