Terror victim son calls on UNHRC to condemn his father’s murder

“My father, Richard Lakin, was a kind gentle person. An elementary school principal who educated thousands of children.   A human rights activist dedicated to promoting coexistence,” he told the council as it met on Monday in Geneva.

“He [Richard Lakin] marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. He founded a school in Israel where Muslim, Christian and Jewish children studied together.  He wrote a book called ‘Teaching as an Act of Love,’” Avni said to the UN member states in the UNHRC chamber as he described his father who held dual Israeli-American citizenship.
