#Eritrea can work productively with those who are concerned with #HumanRights, not those advancing a #PoliticalAgenda
John Philpot, an international lawyer, writing in the recently published book “Justice Belied” writes how overriding selectivity of international law deprives it of legitimacy. He says discriminatory justice is not justice, and describes an international system where “selective prosecution” and the “impunity granted to major powers” undermines its credibility and efficacy.
Today, the Human Rights Council’s integrity is being undermined by “selective prosecution” and the “impunity” of certain states who insist on using the UNHRC as an instrument of their foreign policy. Since its establishment in 2006 as the successor body to the disestablished Commission on Human Rights, the Human Rights Council, has a mandate to strengthen the promotion and protection of human rights, to address situations of human rights violations and make recommendations.
