UN called on to suspend new Palestine investigator Michael Lynk for undisclosed ties to pro-Palestinian lobbies


UN official Michael Lynk failed to disclose his board membership on three pro-Palestinian organizations

GENEVA, Oct. 27, 2016 — The UN should suspend today’s scheduled UN General Assembly presentation by the purported new UN special rapporteur charged with investigating “Israel’s violations of the principles and bases of international law” because his application failed to disclose his leadership role in three pro-Palestinian organizations, said a Geneva-based monitoring group today.
In a letter complaint filed with the UN secretary-general and legal counsel, UN Watch called for Michael Lynk to be suspended pending a review of his appointment as requested in March by Canadian Foreign Minister Stéphane Dion.
Lynk is slated to appear before the UNGA’s Third Committee between 3 to 6 pm today, and to present his first report on alleged Israeli violations.
