Aussie Attorney-General Asks UN To Monitor Human Rights…In Australia

More from the Who’s In Charge Around Here? file.

[HeraldSun] ATTORNEY-GENERAL Robert McClelland said Australia will end the “hypocrisy” of lecturing its neighbours on human rights without always setting a good example of its own.

The Federal Government yesterday issued a standing invitation to the United Nations Human Rights Council to visit Australia to monitor and report on human rights in the country.

It is part of a broader move by Labor to re-engage Australia with the UN after a strained relationship between the former Howard Government and the international body.
