    IT must be convincing and meaningful accountability! Not an eyewash as previous resolutions.

    Looks are getting hot. It is time for our Pseudo Patriots to get into action. The government should consider sending a present cabinet minster who has in Geneva participating is sideline meetings and then proclaiming he address the general assembly during the last general elections.

    The new form of colonialism; under a more justified identity, but colonialism and control, just the same!

    The loudest voices of the UN are also the former colonial powers who raped and pillaged countries to make themselves the first world! Very ironic then, that they are now champions of human rights!

    Now that UK has left the EU, she is exploring other ways of securing a foothold in a lucrative geopolitical region!

    No point in passing soft resolutions, what needed is stern action by UNHR as Law and Order is fading.
