In light of recent public attacks on our friend and colleague Khulood Badawi, a UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) employee, we make public our support of Khulood, that has been the target of a concreted campaign aimed at terminating her employment with OCHA.

We firmly hold that Khulood has a manifested right to exercise her freedom of expression on her personal Facebook page. Calls to dismiss Khulood Badawi are nothing but a political witch hunt, and trust they will be summarily and authoritatively rejected.
