InfoSud: A Genève, une ONG met Pékin face à ses contradictions
Excerpted from Infosud (via Swissinfo):
Alors que Pékin défend ce lundi sa politique des droits de l'homme devant l'ONU, l'ONG Human Rights in China a fait un travail minutieux et systématique de mise à nu.
Invitées à Genève par la Fédération internationale des droits de l'homme, Sharon Hom et Mi Ling Tsui, de HRIC, ont écumé les missions à Genève pour qu'elles participent activement à l'examen de la Chine.
HRIC translation: While Beijing defends its human rights policy at the UN on Monday, the NGO Human Rights in China has done a thorough and systematic job of laying it bare.
Invited to Geneva by FIDH, Sharon Hom and Mi Ling Tsui, of HIRC, have scoured out missions in Geneva so that they can actively participate in the China review.
