Human Rights Watch has criticized the United Nations Human Rights Council for approving a resolution initiated by the Saudi regime on Yemen, saying the resolution is “deeply flawed”

In a statement on Friday, the rights group said the top UN human rights body has failed to adequately and properly probe the human rights violations committed in Yemen

It added that the Saudi proposal was approved after the Dutch backed down following “intense pressure from Saudi Arabia”

The Netherlands on Wednesday withdrew the draft of a resolution calling for an international fact-finding mission over human rights violations in Yemen and instructing the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to dispatch experts to the impoverished country to probe the Saudi aggression

 “By failing to set up a serious UN inquiry on war-torn Yemen, the Human Rights Council squandered an important chance to deter further abuses,” said the HRW’s Geneva deputy director, Philippe Dam

Western governments have accepted the resolution based on the Saudi proposal, which lacks any reference to an independent and international inquiry into abuses in Yemen
