UN to Stand Behind Schabas Appointment


The UN has made it clear that they are standing behind their decision in appointing Professor William Schabas to head up a commission to investigate the campaign in Gaza on their behalf.

Spokesman for the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC), Rolando Gomez, told Channel 2 that the appointment was being upheld, and that they stood behind the decision.

"The appointment was made by President of the UN Human Rights Council, Baudelaire Ndong Ella, this past Monday, August 11," Gomez said.
