UN-General-AssemblyDuring the 66th UN General Assembly, Al-Haq, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) and the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) published a joint statement demanding that due regard be given to the recognition of rights, and the fundamental importance of the rule of law.

The organisations called upon the General Assembly “to uphold the enforcement of international law, and to ensure that the accountability process triggered more than two years ago by the Report of the UN Fact-Finding Mission on the Gaza Conflict reaches its full legal implementation. ”The statement concludes that “At this time it is imperative that the international community sends a clear and unambiguous message: human rights are universal, and all those suspected of committing crimes under international law will be pursued, irrespective of any political considerations.”
