Falahat praised efforts of the NCHR for its efforts in “giving a listening ear to those oppressed, but is only independent in equal proportion to the struggles of its officials for independence,” adding that the center’s recommendations remain unimplemented.  The meeting hosted a number of activists and the families of ‘detainees of conscience’ as well as the center’s commissioner general.

Falahat spoke about events that some activists have experienced; where they were subjected to human rights violations as both individuals and citizens, urging a documentation of those events “during this these times and this political era.”  

 “A State with no respect for the constitution and the law is a state that poses danger to all,” he said, adding that despite the King’s repeated statements, none gets implemented. “The nation is in danger,” he stressed. 

“We should be speaking freely at the doors of the Royal Court,” said Falahat, lamenting the status quo and cautioning about the current state of affairs, where activists celebrate the “success of not being kicked out of the NCHR.”
