Goldstone Report Co-Author to Be UN Human Rights Rapporteur – Hillel Neuer (Times of Israel)
(dailyalert.org, Mar. 28, 2014)

    Christine Chinkin – co-author of the Goldstone Report which blasted Israel’s actions during the 2009 Gaza war – has been nominated to replace Richard Falk as the UN’s Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

    Although Indonesia’s Makarim Wibisono had been widely reported as the slated pick, in the end the Arab states, following Ramallah’s lead, only wanted Chinkin, a proven, pro-Palestinian legal campaigner.

    Falk’s wife, former Turkish government adviser Hilal Elver, will be named to another top UN human rights post.

    The writer is executive director of UN Watch.
