Who’s judging human rights?
I HAVE noted a news report that the United Nations has ejected Libya off the committee which decides what is fit and proper in regard to various human rights issues in UN member nations. If human rights is a matter of truth and proper justice, one wonders how a government led by Colonel Gaddafi could have been appointed to a human rights committee.
One wonders also what other governments, which have no regard for the human rights of their own citizens, sit in judgement on human rights. After learning that Libya was on a UN human rights body, can we expect representatives of people like Robert Mugabe or Fidel Castro to be making decisions about our human rights? LEO McMANUS
