Don’t webcast review of countries, Islamic states tell UN

The Arab, Islamic and African blocs demanded that the UN Human Rights Council cancel its plans to webcast its review of countries’ human rights records.

“As per the existing practice of the Council and the Commission on Human Rights,” they wrote in an April 3, 2008 set of demands circulated today, “only the Plenary meetings are webcast. There should be no exception. The Institution-Building text [the June 2007 rules] does not provide for webcasting of the Working Group proceedings.”
