Tekoah Assails UN Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices in Occupied Territories

Download PDF for this date

Israeli Ambassador Yosef Tekoah criticized again today the “illegal constitution, biased terms of reference and incompetence” of the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Population of the Occupied Territories and the Special Working Group of Experts of the Commission on Human Rights. Tekoah’s charges, identical to those he issued April 7, were made today after it was announced that the Israeli Practices Committee will resume its investigations in the Middle East later this month. The Committee consists of Yugoslavia, Somalia and Ceylon, all without diplomatic relations with Israel. The Committee concluded last year, despite evidence to the contrary, that Israel was violating the rights of the residents of the occupied Arab areas.
