UN’s Gaza inquiry head says will resign over Israel ‘malicious attacks’

3 February 2015 8:20


The head of a UN inquiry into Zionist regime’s summer war on the Gaza Strip says he will step down due to “malicious attacks” by the Tel Aviv regime.

According to Press TV, in August 2014, the Head of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) appointed William Schabas, a Canadian academic, to lead a group examining war crimes during the Israeli regime’s military offensive in Gaza.

Zionist regime has accused him of being biased towards the Palestinians due to a legal opinion he wrote for the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in 2012. However, Schabas insists that consultancy work he did for the PLO was not different from advice he had given to many other governments and organizations.

He said in a Monday letter to the UNHRC that he would resign so that the Israeli allegations of bias could not overshadow the preparation of the report and its findings, slated to be released in March.
He wrote in the letter “My views on Israel and Palestine as well as on many other issues were well known and very public,” adding “This work in defense of human rights appears to have made me a huge target for malicious attacks.”

Schabas’ appointment had angered Zionists regime from the beginning as it he has been a strong critic of the regime and its political leadership.
