Largest donor US orchestrates UN OHCHR actions, says Boyle

[TamilNet, Saturday, 05 March 2016, 16:50 GMT]
"He who pays the piper calls the tune. That is why the UN Human Rights Council and the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights have gone along with the U.S.-sponsored GOSL “domestic mechanism” that is designed to whitewash, cover-up and facilitate the ongoing GOSL war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the Eelam Tamils," said Professor Francis Boyle, an expert in international law and who teaches at the University of Illinois College of Law.

The United States says it is committed to continuing its support for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and remains one of the OHCHR’s largest donors. In 2015, the United States provided $5.5 million to the OHCHR and its efforts to address violations of human rights worldwide, as well as almost $1.25 million to the UN Voluntary Fund for Technical Cooperation in the Field of Human Rights, and $6.5 million to the Voluntary Fund for Victims of Torture. The US anticipates making contributions to the UN’s human rights activities in 2016 as well, Boyle said.

"Basically the United States government is bribing the United Nations to aid and abet the GOSL genocide against the Eelam Tamils in violation of Genocide Convention article 3 (e) that criminalizes “Complicity in genocide.” Have they no shame?" asked Boyle.
