Triumph of Falsehood

I have to admit that in spite of many attempts, I failed to transmit my last message of 02 Oct. 2013 to Mr. Ban Ki-Moon, the UN Secretary General, due to the violent confrontation of those around him who barred its arrival to him. Human life has totally changed; today group of mighty are controlling the world, crushing the vulnerable, indifferent without conscience and with no mercy, undermine the rules to fit their personal interests. Unfortunately, the law of jungle is realistic and has embarked on implementing it on the…

Absence of Impartiality in UN Internal Justice

This is a copy of my messages sent to the SG and UNAT Judges which –for sure– was either classified or sent to the shredders (as usual). In order to avoid embarrassment the UNAT Judges keep dismissing and ignoring my submitted requests containing justifications and proves that refutes my fabricated charges in order not to admit that their initial decision was wrongly made, also to avoid involving the person(s) who forces them to violate their own statute and rules of procedures to take such wrong decision destroying the career and…

Judiciary Notebook – UN Style

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Martin Luther King, Jr. Code of Conduct for the UNDT/UNAT Judges: (UN GA Document # A/65/86 of 15 June 2010). Unsurprisingly, it has taken a year or so to write/publish Code of Conduct for the judges working for the reformed UN Internal Justice system since it came into being on 1 July 2009. This code is now going to the General Assembly for a “routine” clearance.…

Appeal to UN General Assembly

When you mention a famous race horse, they always ask, “from which stable?”  The stable is important, as it establishes the ancestry, authenticity and the breed. When you name a lawyer who has done well, people ask you, “from which chamber?”  The Chamber is important. It establishes the hierarchy and cultural tradition in which the lawyer was born and has been reared. (Remembered quotes of the eminent advocate Fali Nariman, former chairman of International Commission of Jurists) Similarly, when you quote certain judicial norms and democratic conventions, people ask, “do…

UN Justice and Secrecy

One of the oldest democracies in the world, Greece, recognized the vital, organic and inherent interdependence between justice, transparency and human rights. Greece established the Ministry of Justice, Transparency and Human Rights as State Justice Secretariat in 1833. This pioneering  Greek Ministry should serve as a lesson for the UN, and indeed as a shining example for all countries, that transparency is both a pre-requisite for justice and a necessary outcome of justice as well, while human rights remain the overall framework of real justice. By linking justice, transparency and…

Similarly, anyone who listened, and…
