– SURPRISE SURPRISE! Head of UN inquiry into Gaza conflict to quit (The Ugly Truth, Feb 3, 2015):
William Schabas says he will resign immediately to prevent overshadowing the report and its findings over Israeli allegations of bias due to consultancy work he did for the PLO.
The head of a United Nations Human Rights Commission inquiry into last summer’s conflict between Israel and Gaza said he would resign following Israeli allegations of bias due to consultancy work he did for the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
Canadian academic William Schabas was appointed last August by the head of the UN Human Rights Council to lead a three-member group looking into alleged war crimes during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.
