It is unlawful for governments to return people to countries where their lives might be threatened by the climate crisis, a landmark ruling by the United Nations human rights committee has found.
Once again, the invaders ‘human rights’ trump those of the people who live in the invaded countries….
The judgment relates to the case of Ioane Teitiota, a man from the Pacific nation of Kiribati, which is considered one of the countries most threatened by rising sea levels.
He applied for protection in New Zealand in 2013, claiming his and his family’s lives were at risk.
Why New Zealand? Why not any of the other Pacific islands? Is it because they don’t offer welfare…?
While the judgment is not formally binding on countries, it points to legal obligations that countries have under international law.
It’s about time we realised that ‘international law’ is a busted flush.
