New information received concerning Mr. Abdullah al-Howaiti, who has been the subject of two previous communications by Special Procedures mandate holders (UA SAU 4/2021 and AL SAU 15/2021). These communications were based on credible allegations of the arbitrary arrest and torture of Mr. al-Howaiti to extract an incriminating confession, which led to his conviction and sentencing to death on 2 March 2022 by the Criminal Court in Tabouk for a crime he allegedly committed when he was a minor.

Information received concerning the statement on “Two-Pillar solution to address tax challenges arising from the digitalization of the economy” [hereafter- Two Pillar Solution], agreed upon on 8 October 2021, under the OECD/G20 Inclusive Framework Base Erosion and Profit Shifting Project (BEPS). Concerns have been raised about the scope and contents of the announced agreement. Among those concerns, several low and middle-income countries consider that the agreement does not respond to their needs and would diminish their fiscal space, especially at a time when countries are seeking to recover from the crisis resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. In turn, the Two Pillar Solution would negatively affect their ability to meet the needs of their populations and thus to realize human rights, particularly economic, social and cultural rights, and the right to development.
