THREAD

1)
U.N. human rights envoy @AlenaDouhan is in #Iran today calling on all countries to end their “unilateral sanctions” & release the regime’s foreign revenues (estimated at around $120 billion).

FYI: Douhan has received $200,000 from China.

And there’s more. Image
3)
Douhan has been pushing Chinese propaganda, covering up Beijing's persecution of the Uyghurs (herding of 1 million Uyghurs into camps, falsely portraying Xinjiang as a utopia), and condemning Western sanctions against China.
