OHRC forms fact-finding panel to probe students death in North Al Sharqiyah

Muscat: The Omani Human Rights Commission (OHRC) has formed a fact-finding panel to probe the death of a number of people, including children in the North Al Sharqiyah Governorate due to the effects of the exceptional weather condition that the country experienced recently.

The committee will submit its report within a period not exceeding one month from the date of its formation.

The OHRC announced the formation of a team based on a number of terms of reference included in its system issued by Royal Decree No. (57/2022), for the protection of human rights and freedom in the Sultanate of Oman in accordance with the Basic Law of the State, the applicable laws, and the international charters and agreements to which the Sultanate of Oman has acceded to.

The law of the state aims to monitor violations and abuses related to human rights, assisting in settling and resolving them, receiving complaints in the field of human rights, studying and recommending them to the competent authorities, providing advice to the relevant authorities in the state on matters related to human rights and freedoms, and contributing to the preparation of reports that address these topics.

Previously, the Oman Human Rights Commission had issued a statement calling on the concerned authorities to take all necessary measures to ensure that such painful incidents are not repeated within the framework of what is required by the applicable laws and agreements to which the Sultanate of Oman has acceded.

It also called on everyone to take utmost caution and take into account the best interest of the child in a way that preserves the right to life, which is the foundation on which all human rights are based.
