Salam Still Unregistered

The Ministry of Social Development requested that the preparatory committee of Salam Human Rights Society omit three names from the list of its founders, as a condition for legally registering the Society. It was thought that the three names do not comply with the conditions of establishing a society, which includes possessing a file that is clear of any crime or offence against honour and honesty. The founders of the Society have applied for a license to establish Salam since last December, and are still waiting for official permission to begin its activities. A member in the preparatory committee Hadi Al Mosawi said that the Ministry did not provide any clarification with regards to the omission of the three names.
