Nicaragua reiterates rejection of the UN human rights mechanism

Managua, Mar 3 (Prensa Latina) The Government of Nicaragua reiterated today its total rejection of the so-called "oral update" mechanism of the Human Rights Council of the United Nations (UN), reported an official note.

During a message read at said council on the interactive dialogue for periodic updates of the high commissioner on Nicaragua, held in Geneva, Switzerland, the Sandinista delegation affirmed that the sole purpose of the mechanism is to harm national sovereignty and independence.

He described as harmful the performance of the reports prepared by the council on human rights in this Central American country, for which they use “partial, biased and subjective information.”

He stressed that another of the objectives is to distort the purpose of fully achieving the common good and peace for the nation, as fundamental pillars of true human rights.

“This update continues to be unfounded, with inputs taken from certain groups that, through a script, try to manipulate the reality of our country,” he stressed.

In this regard, the delegation added that they want to impose on Nicaragua the economic interests of “imperialist” countries, which insist on belittling and attacking to maintain their interventionist position.

“We do not accept that this mechanism of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights continues to act with a clear political bias and lack of objectivity,” he stressed.

In this way, he highlighted, the principles of equality between countries such as democracy and transparency, which are embodied in the United Nations charter, are violated.

Nicaragua demanded that the UN body resume the principles of encouraging the real, equal and effective protection of human rights without discrimination or distinction, for which it was created.

In this sense, he urged the forum to empower itself of its responsibilities, to recognize and respect the right of the peoples of the world “to make their own decisions and to live in peace, with sovereignty and human consideration.”
