Sub: Need for establishing a viable Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanism

The mandate of UN General Assembly adoption of resolution reads as follows:-
"States shall, with respect to claims by victims, enforce domestic judgments for reparation against individuals or entities liable for the harm suffered and endeavour to enforce valid foreign legal judgments for reparation in accordance with domestic law and international legal obligations. To that end, States should provide under their domestic laws effective mechanisms for the enforcement of reparation judgments" (Resolution adopted by the United Nations General Assembly - A/RES/60/147)

According to the Statute of the United Nations, Reparation is the right of every victim and the State to which the victim belongs to has the absolute responsibility to take up the issue on behalf of the victim, with the State where the violation of Human Right took place and obtain due reparation to the victim’

Even though millions of Indians are working in the Gulf countries for the past many decades and there were many hundreds of persons who have been turned victims of various atrocities, an effective Indo-Gulf Reparation Mechanism is yet to be introduced. The Government of India has a definite responsibility to help and protect its citizens working abroad. In the absence of an effective Reparation Mechanism, the intolerable sufferings of Indians working in the Gulf countries will continue unabated.

In this context, the ‘Overseas Indians Legal Cell’, a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Kochi, is intending to submit a representation to the Government of India, incorporating the specific grievances of the victims who were put to suffer mental, physical and economic losses while working in the Gulf countries.

The participants in the ensuing ‘Pravasi Bharathiya Divas’ conferences between 7th and 9th January 2013 are being contacted separately to obtain specific grievances/suggestions on the subject.

The ‘Legal Cell’ would urge up on you to kindly give all the possible support of your popular media for persuading the Government of India for this noble cause, to help and protect our own citizens working abroad, to have a living for themselves and their families and whose remittances build up billions of dollars of the precious foreign exchange to India.

A detailed report on the subject is available here: The establishment of a viable ‘Reparation Mechanism’ Between India and Gulf Countries

Yours faithfully,

Demanding Justice, Truth and Court-ordered reparations
Respect Judicial decisions and uphold the rule of law.

Mindful, in particular, that a judgment debt is hanging over the Abu Dhabi Emirate, United Arab Emirates. The judgment is binding and enforceable by the court of Abu Dhabi from where the ruling came from. It should also be kept in mind that successor governments remain bound by the acts incurred by the predecessor governments. The Judgment debt of Abu Dhabi, can be eliminated or satisfied by the enforcement of judgments and legal remedies...Investors
