Egyptian activists urge UN to investigate Qatar’s support for terrorism in Libya

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

CAIRO – A number of Egyptian human rights advocates called on the United Nations Human Rights Council to set up an international commission to investigate Qatar’s violation of the Libyan sovereignty through providing support to armed terrorist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya.

The Egyptian activists considered such attitude a violation of the United Nations’ 2006 Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy, which compels states’ leaders not to intervene in the sovereignty of other states, to respect their territorial integrity and political independence, and to refrain from financing and supporting terrorist and armed groups.

This came during a seminar held by an Egyptian delegation that included members of the Forum for Development and Human Rights Dialog, and Alexandria’s Women and Development Association,on the sidelines of the Human Rights Council’s 40th session in Geneva.
