The National Commission for Human Rights said that it followed with great concern the campaign carried out by some residents of Al-Amarat neighborhood to close shisha cafes without resorting to law enforcement agencies, and they implemented the law into their own hands.

In a press statement, according to Al-Sayha newspaper, on Friday, the Commission expressed its deep concern about the initiatives taken by some to take what they consider right by force and outside the scope of the law, and warned against the growth of such trends, and called on the authorities to take the necessary measures to prevent and criminalize such illegal campaigns.

It also called on the authorities to review the licenses of all hookah cafes, especially those located within residential neighborhoods, and called for setting strict controls in granting new licenses to hookah cafes, including controls to observe environmental and health safety conditions.

The commission said, “In all cases, special supervision must be activated, observing environmental and health safety conditions, and preventing children from entering these cafes.” It also warned of the danger of child labor in these cafes.
