On June 3, 2015, UN Human Rights Council President Joachim Rücker addressed a conference on "religious freedom" hosted by the 56 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in religiously intolerant Saudi Arabia.
His statement included not one word about freedom of religion in his host country. Nor did he call for Saudi Arabia to stop flogging or release its imprisoned religious dissidents.
Rücker legitimized Saudi Arabia as being seriously interested in religious freedom and human rights and then he left.
Just days later, Saudi Arabia's Supreme Court upheld the sentence of 1000 lashes and 10 years for blogger Raif Badawi. The UN human rights establishment shares the blame.
