Analyst says Nicaragua resolution at UN is fake


Exclusively with Brenza Latina, González noted political bias and interference in the mechanism, which he called unacceptable as unconstitutional.

Last week, the aforementioned organization approved a resolution establishing a group of three experts to investigate possible human rights violations in Central America starting in April 2018.

The document received 20 votes for, 7 votes against and 20 abstentions.

In this sense, the law professor of the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN-Managua) also pointed out that the council has little legitimacy when it comes to the human rights agenda.

“When we talk about legitimacy, we are talking about something institutional, that is to say that international relations are rational and consensual, but above all, countries organize themselves so that UN experts can guarantee applying the policies to all cities,” he explained.

Gonzalez called the agenda colonial, saying it was a discredited tactic against leftist governments in the region.

“When they appoint electoral commissions, human rights or any other type of monitoring commissions, these are colonial tactics to establish a position based on northern hegemony,” he said.

The researcher has a paradoxical aspect in this matter, namely that he was recently appointed vice-president of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations for his work on food sovereignty in the Nicaraguan region.

“Obviously, the guarantee of life, food sovereignty, is not a human right for the United Nations. It is therefore not an agenda that seeks to assert these rights in an integrated way, but which seeks to impose its hegemony,” he commented.

The university professor noted the events that took place in this Central American country in 2018 and the Chandinista government called two commissions to examine the conflict that existed at the time.

“Then there was a certain fact, but now we are at peace, so there is no reason to allow this delegation, to accept it would be to violate our own constitution,” he concluded.

Last Thursday, the government of President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo rejected any resolution adopted at the UN Human Rights Council against Managua for lack of political basis.

The Nicaraguan executive called on the people not to focus or base these resolutions on disinformation and hateful media campaigns.
