It is worth noting that Maat Foundation has filed a complaint with the Working Group on Enforced Disappearances and the Working Group on Arbitrary Detention to communicate with the Qatari authorities regarding the case of Abdel Razek Arezig, and the Qatari authorities ignored these complaints and did not respond to any of them, but rather worked to harass Arzeq inside his detention facility. . The Maat Foundation renewed its call on the Qatari authorities to investigate the forced disappearance and arbitrary detention of the Syrian citizen, Abdel Razek Ahmed Arzeeq. And to allow the appointment of a lawyer to defend him. The Maat Foundation also calls on the UN agencies and the international community to pressure the Qatari authorities to release him.
