Some recommendations from the UN Human Rights Council

February 2nd, 2014 at 1:00 pm by David Farrar

New Zealand has just had its human rights records reviewed by the . This august body includes the governments of Algeria, China, Congo, Cuba, Ethiopia, Gabon, Indonesia, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Libya, Maldives, Morocco, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sierra Leone, the United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.

So what are some of the things they recommend for New Zealand:

  • Continue its reflections and work with a view to having a written Constitution (Benin)
  • Incorporate economic and social rights in its Human Rights charter (Togo)
  • Continue to address all forms of political, economic and social discrimination against the Māori and Pacific population by meeting their various demands for constitutional and legal reforms and recognition (Somalia)
  • Increase its official development aid to reach the international norm of 0.7 per cent of GDP (Tunisia)
  • Expedite the development of a new Māori language strategy (Bangladesh)
  • Implement effective measures to achieve the aim of increasing the participation of women in governance to 45 per cent in the public sector and over ten per cent in the private sector by 2014 (Australia);
  • Consider relinquishing the use of electric taser weapons by the police (Namibia)
  • Establish appropriate national strategies with the aim to identify and address structural discrimination in the justice system (Iran (Islamic Republic of))

Wonderfully helpful. They’ve written the Green Party manifesto for them!

    Is the UN just a ruse for allowing countries that actually have abhorrent human rights records to try and distract the west from their actual criminal behaviour?

    Maybe two reports should be published. This one that you ignore and the second one that has the feedback from nations we might actually respect which would have probably less than a handful of recommendations.

    Judith Collins needs to get a backbone and when interviewed by the media on this yesterday should have responded with “do Labour and the Greens seriously think we should focus on recommendations from countries like Iran and Somalia”

    Peacekeepers ‘abusing children’

    Children in post-conflict areas are being abused by the very people drafted into such zones to help look after them, says Save the Children.

    Peacekeepers gone wild: How much more abuse will the UN ignore in Congo?

    foreign soldiers in the Democratic Republic of Congo can sexually and violently violate young girls with impunity so long as they wear that iconic blue beret or blue helmet.

    sex with girls aged as young as 12, sometimes in the mission’s administrative buildings.

    In the DRC, peacekeepers were said to have offered abandoned orphans small gifts – as little as two eggs from their rations, says the report – for sexual encounters.

    Benin’s constitution and human rights (extract)

    c. Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment

    The constitution and law prohibit such practices; however, the government did not always respect these prohibitions. Beatings in custody reportedly were commonplace.

    The Constitutional Court received complaints from citizens who were brutalized by the police. For example, on March 8, the Constitutional Court ruled that five elements of an Anticrime Brigade (BAC) violated provisions of the constitution prohibiting degrading treatment or punishment and the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights when five policemen severely beat, arrested, and detained a truck driver who refused to give them a bribe during a routine road security check in February 2009 in Adjarra, a suburb of Porto-Novo.

    The government completed payments to victims of torture under the previous military regime; however, a large group of citizens who had been detained and tortured under the previous military regime complained that the payments they received were discriminatorily insignificant compared with the payments that former political exiles received from the government.

    Prison and Detention Center Conditions

    Prison conditions continued to be extremely harsh. Overcrowding and lack of proper sanitation and medical facilities posed risks to prisoners’ health. A Mediator of the Republic’s (Ombudsman) July 6 report on the condition in the nine civil prisons indicated that prisons were overcrowded, and malnutrition and disease were common. Some prisoners suffered from mental illness. There were deaths due to lack of medical care and neglect. Prisoners at times died from lack of ventilation in cramped and overcrowded cells. Eight of the nine civil prisons were filled far beyond their capacity. The ombudsman published statistics in June indicating the total prison population (including pretrial detainees and remand prisoners) was 6,908; of that number, pretrial detainees and remand prisoners totaled 5,174. No breakdown of the number of juvenile and women prisoners in all nine prisons was available.

    In 2009 the government increased prisoners’ diet from one meal a day to two.

    Juveniles at times were housed with adults. Pretrial detainees were held with convicted prisoners, although not with the most violent convicts or those convicted of crimes subject to the death penalty. According to the ombudsman’s report, pretrial detainees outnumbered convicts three or four to one during the reporting period.

    The government permitted prison visits by human rights monitors. Nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and religious groups continued to visit prisons. Organizations that visited prisons during the year included the International Committee of the Red Cross, Amnesty International, the local chapter of Prison Fellowship, Caritas, and Prisoners Without Borders.

    Dear Benin,

    Our Constitution is working OK with out the need for a written one.

    Dear Togo,

    Adding economic and social rights to our charter (what charter are you talking about?) would affect the flexibility of our economy. We don’t like communism here. Minimum wages only increase unemployment. Banning firing would result in fewer jobs and less productivity. We also belive in the right to create jobs as an employer you know.

    Dear Somalia,

    Maori are fully free to advance them selves in society as they so choose. We have full equity of races and don’t want to give any group more special rights over other groups – see Fiji if you want to know what happens when you favor one group over the other.

    Dear Tunisia,

    You mean give us more money?. Nothing wrong with that although aid programs have a troubling habit of paying the wrong people. I will happily give more aid – when I know it will be spent well. And perhaps do it in our local neighborhood.

    Dear Bangladesh,

    Expedite a new Maori Language Strategy?. We have far more important problems to deal with. One language makes a country far more easier to operate.

    Dear Australia,

    Increase the participation of women? Great. But is this really a major issue to deal with. How about domestic violence? Far more important use of our time.

    Dear Namibia,

    Stop using Tazers? Does that mean if a person is acting irresponsibly we can shoot them? Our red neck community might like that.

    Dear Iran,

    Address structural failures in the Justice System? Sorry I don’t get you. Please explain? Oh and can you please let people change their religion from Islam in Iran?

    Wonderfully helpful. They’ve written the Green Party manifesto for them!

    In all seriousness, when I heard this on the midday RNZ news yesterday as the lead item and quoting only the Greens, I assumed that the Greens had fed all this to the UN. The Greens spokeswoman was quoted as saying NZ NGOs had reported on us to the UN.

    Then I heard Judith Collins agreeing with the report and suggesting she had tabled some material with the UN recently.

    So thanks DPF for posting the link to the report, which confirms Judith Collins attended the UN and presented a report from us.

    Methinks the Greens were just quick off the block to put their slant on it :-)

    A very thoughtful and well considered comment.

    I would however suggest that many of those African countries are in fact developing. At one time many of them were reasonably prosperous and stable under colonial rule by various European countries. Now they are “developing” into the biggest shit holes on the planet under black rule. Somalia and the Congo are appalling places and to even call them a country is stretching the intention the term to breaking point.

Also it is called the Universal Periodic Review – the idea being every state once every 5 years has to front to tell its HR story. NZ goes because if we didn’t it would help countries like Iran, DPRK and Syria not front. Odd thing is these countries hate being embarrassed internationally and the UPR is one place they have to front. Doesn’t save the world but is one very small part of trying to make it less odious….

At least she had the guts to tell me the beloved Judy Bailey was ripping off her NZ “children” to the tune of $800,000 p.a. to say “good evening here is the news”,esp if the music had stopped, and then read a script or monitor for 10 minutes a day.

    “I could not believe the Labour candidate seriously suggested that we should adopt the xenophobic policies of the far right” said Ms Davidson who worked for ten years at the Human Rights Commission.

    “At the Commission we spent a lot of time challenging racism, embracing diversity and helping refugees and new immigrants appreciate the importance of the Treaty of Waitangi.”

    Ms Davidson said traditional values of manaaki manuhiri and indigenous peoples solidarity stood in stark contrast to anti-immigration policies of ultra right wing parties and organisations.

    The bloody cheek !

    Maori nationalists are constantly complaining about “colonists” which is simply a code name for immigration by white people. Maori are well known for demanding special rights and privileges above others who have moved here, on the basis of race.

    As for “solidarity” you have to be kidding ! They are constantly fighting even among themselves. They are even proud of it.

    The Greens shriek we’re “shameful” over this. Yeah, Iran giving us a spanking over justice while they’re busy amputating limbs from alleged criminals and stoning people to death for daring to switch from their death cult. Go figure. Helen, reign it your fuckwits.
