UN Watch encourages the UN to live up to its charter, so the president of the UN Human Rights Council wants to bury it. So it goes.
Headed by Ambassador Alfred H. Moses (Chair), former US Ambassador to Romania…UN Watch is governed by an international board whose members include:
Per Ahlmark (European Co-Chair), former Deputy Prime Minister of Sweden;
Professor Irwin Cotler, international human rights advocate and former Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of Canada…
Ambassador Max Jakobson, former Permanent Representative of Finland to the UN in New York…
The list of worthies goes on.
Here’s the resume of the censor (my ellipsis):
Born in 1957 in…Mexico, Mr. De Alba holds a B.A. in international affairs from the Institut d’Etudes des Relations Internationales in Paris.
(He)…joined the Mexican Foreign Service in 1981 (then) served as Chief of the Political Affairs Section of the United Nations in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from 1983 to 1988 and as Third Secretary at the Permanent Mission of Mexico to the United Nations from 1983 to 1986…
(He) was Director of Education and Sports in the Ministry of Planning and Budget, from 1989 to 1990, and Adviser to the Minister for Foreign Affairs in 1988.
From 1991 to 1993, (he) held the post of Director of Humanitarian and Social Affairs for the United Nations in the Foreign Ministry.
(From) 1998 to 2001, he was Director General for the United Nations in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mexico, served as the Deputy Permanent Representative of Mexico to the United Nations from March 2002 to March 2004.
He’s a typical member of the Mexican elite – never had a proper job, with a life experience spanning Mexico (as corrupt as Saudi Arabia and China), France, and the UN.
UN Watch is never going to de-infest the UN of creeps like this.
