HRW UNaware Bashir Met Ladsous, Urges UN Not Fly FDLR Leaders

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, July 15, more here -- When the Coalition for the International Criminal Court and Human Rights Watch came to brief the UN press corps about the ICC on July 15, Inner City Press asked them about UN Peacekeeping head Herve Ladsous meeting with ICC indictee Omar al Bashir, and about his mission in the Congo recently flying the leader of the FDLR militia at least to Kinshasa.

  CICC convenor William Pace replied that the UN Secretariat should be instructed to limit all non-essential contacts.

  HRW's Richard Dicker said he was unaware of Ladsous' meeting with Bashir -- strange, since HRW's UN lobbyist has been quieried about it -- but correctly brought up UN Peacekeeping's previously flying in Sudan of Ahmed Harun.

  "That same standard applies to FDLR leadership, Dicker said. Well, who's going to tell Ladsous, or the French government which installed Ladsous as the fourth French head of UN Peacekeeping in a row?

  There was talk of how ICC judges are elected. Inner City Press previously reported on France offering to support a candidate deemed unqualified if his country would support France's candidate. Maybe they never heard of that one, either? Watch this site.
