Folks are asking UN Watch when we’ll see the report of the Goldstone Fact-Finding Mission on Gaza. Answer: “The Goldstone report will be made available next month, prior to the Human Rights Council’s next session, which starts on 14 September,” announced the U.N. recently in New York.
Goldstone is scheduled to appear in Geneva to present the report in person on the 29th of September, during the Council debate under its permanent agenda item on Israel. Presenting a similar but separate report on the January 2009 Hamas-Israel war, already released and available here, will be UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay.
Will a draft of Goldstone’s report be leaked in advance? Stay tuned.
