The U.N. Fired Whistleblower For What?!?, Deep Level Corruption
The United Nations isn't even trying to hide its bias for China. When a whistleblower came out against the U.N. for reportedly feeding them a list of Uighurs and their families they challenged her in court. Ultimately, the whistleblower was fired and I am absolutely floored that no one is talking about this!
"Emma Reilly was dismissed within 24 hours of her giving an interview to the leading French newspaper Le Monde. It was Reilly’s case that alerted many to the growing influence of China within the U.N. system.
Reilly notified her U.N. bosses when she learned that the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) — on the request of China — handed over names of dissidents who were coming to the U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, Switzerland. Reilly said this resulted in pressure from Beijing on the dissidents not to make the trip.
She and others have claimed the Chinese authorities threatened their families, which in some cases resulted in arrests, torture and in one case, a person was reported to have died in Chinese detention."
"Beijing intends to both silence critics and reshape international standards in its favor, particularly the definition of human rights. It no longer wants to relate to freedoms such as the freedom to express oneself but wants to adopt concepts that are more favorable to it, such as economic development. And this takes care also of the human rights violations along the China–Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) or, in general, along the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The genocide of Baloch or Uighurs, under this narrative, is a small price to be paid for development."
I know that a lot of Democrats felt like it was a radical school of thought to cut funding to the U.N. but this seems like a good reason to start. How in the world can you trust an organization with such clear biases?
