The U.N. Human Rights Council’s “fact-finding mission” on Gaza will next week hold hearings in Geneva, Judge Goldstone presiding. Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz makes a powerful case that the one-sided mandate established by the Arab-controlled council turns the inquiry into a kangaroo court.
Meanwhile, the U.N. appears to be tightly controlling the witness list. With only 6 days left, no information has been published for how witnesses can register. UN Watch’s repeated queries to the mission secretariat on this have so far gone unanswered.
