For the first time, the United Nations has circulated as an official UN document a draft resolution calling for the firing of Richard Falk, A/HRC/23/NGO/27.
UN Watch submitted the draft text in the form of a NGO written statement to the UN Human Rights Council.
Its acceptance and publication on the UN website means that the text will officially appear on the council’s agenda and be circulated to delegates when Falk addresses the 47-nation body on June 10th.
To be voted upon and adopted, however, the resolution will have to be sponsored by one of the council’s 47 member countries, such as the United States.
UN Watch urges the U.S. and other democracies to endorse the draft resolution.
