Suspend UN rights envoy for undisclosed ties to Palestinians, NGO says

In a statement issued to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Thursday, Geneva-based monitoring group UN Watch demanded that the United Nations special investigator into Israeli violations against the Palestinians should be suspended from his position, claiming his failure to disclose "his leadership role in three pro-Palestinian organizations" is grounds for dismissal.

The demand was issued hours before Michael Lynk, a Canadian international law expert, presented to the UN General Assembly’s Third Committee a 26-page report on Israeli actions against Palestinians which he submitted last week.
