Amid Bangladesh Killing Opposition, UN Says Nothing, Faint Sri Lanka Echo?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, February 28 – Talk about UN selective focus: 30 protesters are killed in Bangladesh and when Inner City Press asks Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's deputy spokesman about it, there is no information, no recognition, nothing.

  Across First Avenue from the UN a protest was taking place (Inner City Press tweeted photo here), yellow taxi cabs stopped and signed demanding justice and UN action. Bangladeshi opposition leader Delwar Hossain Sayedee, 73 years old, was sentenced to death. In the ensuring protests, at least thirty people were killed at least 30 people.

  After the UN spokesperson had no answer, Inner City Press ran through the garage to the Security Council. There, a Council member's Deputy Permanent Representative slammed the Bangladesh government's “witch hunt” trials, saying there is not enough evidence.

  Bangladesh's Permanent Representative Monem is a fine man, notwithstanding his recent role in handing to Ban Ki-moon a “whitewash” report about the killing of 40,000 civilians in Sri Lanka.

  As a UN matter, Monem is very involved in the Peacebuilding Commisssion. But what about this? Watch this site.
