In this report to the Second Session of the Human Rights Council, RSG Kälin discusses his activities in support of his mandate as the Representative of the UN Secretary-General on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons.
In his statement, Kälin stated that there are three key elements to ensuring the protection of the human rights of IDPs:
- There must be a strong normative framework;
- There must be political will; and
- There must be the capacity to protect.
By basing his work on these pillars, the human rights of IDPs can be better protected.
Both Egypt and the UAE have come out defending the Saudis. Perhaps they also played some role in the operation. There is no evidence of that aside from the suspicious stops in Cairo and Dubai.
