Australian Conservatives are calling upon the Australian government to ensure that we call out the hypocrisy of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) when our Governor-General - His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Ret’d) -addresses the UNHRC next week.
The UNHRC has consistently criticised Australia's successful border protection policies and handling of indigenous affairs.
Yet UN Watch points out the hypocrisy of current UNHRC members, including those standing accused of:
- Saudi Arabia, death sentences for apostasy and adultery, and corporal punishment including flogging and amputation;
- Venezuela, widespread arbitrary imprisonment - including of opposition leaders;
- China, which denies free speech, freedom of religion or association, conducts extra-judicial killings;
- Cuba, violation of freedoms of speech, assembly and the press.
