US: HRW executive director slams UNSC’s flawed and selective approach to investigating Iraq war crimes

Executive Director of Human Rights Watch's Middle East and North Africa Division Sarah Leah Whitson has slammed the UN Security Council as 'flawed and selective' in their approach to investigating war crimes in Iraq. She was speaking during a Skype interview from New York, Saturday. Whitson has claimed that the UN «misses the opportunity to investigate crimes committed by all parties» in this... Еще approach, adding “the most serious abuses we've seen are at the hands of Iraqi forces and Iraqi militias.” «HRW have repeatedly urged them to explain the mandate of this investigative team, to include abuses by all parties to the conflict, and they've chosen very deliberately not to do that,» she said, adding “that's not how an international body should be acting.»
