Uno General Assembly Approves Establishment of Commission on Human Rights

The UNO General Assembly today unanimously approved a committee report proposing the immediate establishment of a Commission on Human Rights.

The report, presented by Norwegian rapportour Frieda Dalen, suggested that the commission be established by the Economic and Social Council of the UNO at its present session. It is expected that the matter will be placed on the council agenda within the next few days.

A spokesman for the Dominican delegation, commenting today on his country’s offer to accept Jewish immigrants, which was circulated among UNO delegates yesterday, told the JTA that he hoped that it would stimulate other nations to “make serious efforts to solve the Jewish problem and enable Jewish refugees to reconstruct their lives in an atmosphere of respect and understanding entirely free of discrimination and prejudice.”
