.@UN_HRC Why did you invite discredited William Schabas to address the UN when on grounds of conflict of interest in 2015 he was ignominiously forced to resign from your Gaza inquiry after it was revealed he had failed to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO?

In his pathetic resignation letter, Schabas explained that he never bothered to disclose his paid legal work for the PLO because....no one ever asked him. "I was not requested to detail my past activities concerning Palestine..."
To his credit, UNHRC President Joachim Ruecker established the principle that UN appointees should avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest. Only after Amb. Ruecker formally requested a legal opinion from UN Headquarters in New York did Schabas resign.
