Navi Pillay Targets Syria

She's contemptuous of fundamental human rights.

by Stephen Lendman

She's UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. Her job involves spurning them. She's a reliable imperial tool. She's up to her old tricks.

On January 18, she addressed the Security Council in closed session. More on that below.

The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) lists her credentials. Post-apartheid in 1995, she was appointed a South African High Court judge.

The same year, she was chosen to serve on the International Tribunal for Rwanda (ICRT). From 1999 - 2003, she served as president.

ICRT lacked credibility. It served imperial interests. It pointed fingers the wrong way. Guilty parties were absolved. Victims were prosecuted. While president, Pillay bore full responsibility.

OHCHR claimed otherwise. It lied. It turned truth on its head. It said Pillay "played a critical role in the ICTR's groundbreaking jurisprudence on rape as genocide, as well as on issues of freedom of speech and hate propaganda."

Michel Chossudovsky explained Washington's hidden Rwanda agenda. It prioritized "establishing an American sphere of influence in a region historically dominated by France and Belgium."

Rwanda's civil war and "ethnic massacres were an integral part of US foreign policy, carefully staged in accordance with precise strategic and economic objective."

Pillay's ICTR mandate was suppressing truth.

In 2003, she was appointed an International Criminal Court (ICC) judge. She served until August 2008.

ICC functions solely as an imperial tool. It targets victims Washington and other Western powers want charged with crimes of war, against humanity and genocide. Crimes of aggression will be included later.

Responsible major powers are absolved. Victims have no chance. Guilt by accusation is policy. Pillay advanced her career by going along. She sold her soul in the process. She did it before. She's doing it now. It's getting to be a habit.
