Human Rights Watch said they were referring, according to a statement, to the September Human Development Report in Egypt that was released by United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
Madrid. (EUROPA PRESS)-Human Rights Watch (HRW), Amnesty International and the Cairo Institute for Human Rights (CIHRS) accuse the United Nations of “believing in false statements by the Egyptian government”, which “facilitates” human rights violations.
Human Rights Watch has stated that the three non-governmental organizations specifically reference the September Human Development Report in Egypt, which was released by UNDP.
These groups claim the report contains “false claims” and appears to have been designed to “cover up serious breaches of international law on human rights by the government and the security forces.”
Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and CIHRS wrote to Achim Stoner, Chief Administrative Officer of United Nations Development Program (UNDP), in early November. They stated in detail what they thought were false statements in this report. However, they regret that they didn’t receive any complaints. This is the right time to make this accusation.
Accordingly, the NGO asked UNDP for a review of the report. It also urged UN agencies, while they waited, to delete the UN portal report and to investigate its writing and publication.
Human Rights Watch highlighted that the UNDP’s report contradicts the results of UN agencies in their evaluations and investigations, as well as those of international and national human rights NGOs.
