Case of “Al-Bidoon” in Kuwait

Concerning the case of “Al-Bidoon”, the Kuwaiti Government should realize that it is bound to protect and respect the following rights guaranteed by international law to every person:

  • the right to be recognized as a person before the law
  • the right to equality before the law
  • the right to enjoy equal protection of the law without any discrimination
  • the right to a nationality
  • the right to take part in the government, whether directly or indirectly
  • the right to peaceful demonstration or assembly

These are the rights which – among other ones – the Kuwaiti Government must protect and respect in order to resolve the case of “Al-Bidoon” and to put an end to their protracted suffering. The key solution to the case of “Al-Bidoon” lies in guaranteeing the above-mentioned rights.

Finally, Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states: “All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
