1) United Nations Human Rights Council: Lybia – March 1, 2011

‘UN General Assembly Suspends Libya’s Human Rights Council Membership’

Press Statement
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC

The United States applauds the move by the UN General Assembly to suspend Libya’s membership rights in the Human Rights Council in Geneva. We continue to demand an immediate halt to the violence perpetrated by the Qadhafi government against its own citizens. The General Assembly today has made it clear that governments that turn their guns on their own people have no place on the Human Rights Council.

Today’s historic action is the first time that any country serving on the Human Rights Council, or the Commission before it, has ever had its membership suspended. The international community is speaking with one voice and our message is unmistakable: these violations of universal rights are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

Two years ago, the United States announced that we would seek to join the Human Rights Council with a commitment to reform the Council from within. The actions the Council has taken over the last few days, setting the stage for today’s decision, is the latest example that our engagement is paying dividends, even as we keep pressing for further reforms.

The United States will continue to work with the international community on additional steps to hold the Qadhafi government accountable, provide humanitarian assistance to those in need, and support the Libyan people as they pursue a transition to democracy.

2) United Nations Human Rights Council: Syria – June 5, 2013

‘Russia: Use of UNHRC to Benefit Extremist Opposition Hinders Resolving Syrian Crisis’

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that using the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to support one side of the crisis in Syria creates an obstacle for preparing the international conference to resolve the crisis due to be held in Geneva.

A statement published on the Ministry’s website on Wednesday said that the use of the UNHRC to benefit one side of the crisis in Syria, specifically the extremist opposition, does not help find a way out of the Syrian crisis.

The statement pointed out that the bias of the report submitted at the UNHRC was exploited by some countries’ delegation to once again assign blame for what is happening in Syria to the Syrian government, all while neglecting the many crimes and human rights violation committed by armed terrorist groups.

The Foreign Ministry said that the experts who submitted the aforementioned reported didn’t bother to listen to the victims and witnesses to violence perpetrated by extremists, although these experts admitted that the growing numbers of extremists among gunmen in Syria are committing summary executions, torture, abduction and employ children in aggressive actions.

The statement also noted that the committee in charge of the report once again decided not to include bombings committed by armed groups in Syrian cities in the list of terrorist acts; it even refused to describe them as terrorist acts!

The Ministry said that the atrocities committed by extremists are being condoned through remaining silent over them, especially rape and violence against women.

I am working for the Belgian human rights association 'Werkgroep Morkhoven' which revealed the Zandvoort childporn case (88.539 victims). The case was covered up by the authorities. During the past years I have been really shocked by the way the rich countries of the western empire want to rule the world. One of my blogs: «Latest News Syria» (WordPress)/ Je travaille pour le 'Werkgroep Morkhoven', un groupe d'action qui a révélé le réseau pornographique d'enfants 'Zandvoort' (88.539 victims). Cette affaire a été couverte par les autorités. Au cours des dernières années, j'ai été vraiment choqué par la façon dont l'Occident et les pays riches veulent gouverner le monde. Un de mes blogs: «Latest News Syria» (WordPress)/ Ik werk voor de Werkgroep Morkhoven die destijds de kinderpornozaak Zandvoort onthulde (88.539 slachtoffers).
