To Reporters Without Borders, which is protesting the Commission on Human Rights at the United Nations being headed by Libya. A leaflet passed out this weekend at a Geneva commission meeting, which an NRO friend who was there faxed to me, states: “The UN has finally appointed someone who knows what she is taking about!
Disappearances, torture, arbitrary arrests, detention without charge or trial, pervasive censorship, harassment of opponents families…Libya, which was elected to the presidency of the Un Commission for Human Rights on 20 January, knows a thing or two about human rights violations
Libya at the head of this commission is a sick joke. What credibility can such a body have when led by the representative of a country where human rights are abused every day?….
Now, if they would protest some of the members, too.
