UN Security Council must enforce settlement blacklist – UNHRC official
(Worthy News) – The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) must enforce a settlement boycott by ensuring that the database of businesses operating over the pre-1967 lines can be used for enforcement action, special rapporteur Michael Lynk said in a written report submitted to the General Assembly in New York.
“The UNSC should ensure that the database becomes a living tool, that it clarifies and broadens its mandate, and that it provide the database with sufficient resources so that its spotlight can properly identify the scope of all business involvement with the settlements and the occupation,” he wrote in his annual report published over the weekend.
Lynk is a Canadian legal expert who is the UN Human Rights Council special rapporteur for the human-rights situation in the Palestinian territories. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More…) ]
