The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and her UN Human Rights Council colleagues are at it again - this time putting out a press release stating that U.S. business and labor practices are apparently inconsistent with international human rights standards. The result is from a 10-day visit to the US of the so-called UN "Working Group on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises." The chair of the group is from Russia - a country where corruption and intimidation are a way of life. The other four members are from Malaysia, Columbia, Ghana and Denmark. The OHCHR press release headline reads
: "US: Despite progress significant challenges to address adverse business impacts on human rights". The UN also issued a second press release which says: "The UN experts heard allegations of significant and widespread labour practices that, if correct, would be both illegal under US laws, as well as fall below international standards," the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said in a news release."
