U.N. chief criticizes human rights body
by UPI

GENEVA, Switzerland - United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has criticized the international body's human rights panel for what he called selective condemnation of abuses.

Ban questioned whether the U.N. Human Rights Council was "fully meeting the high expectations" of the international community, The Financial Times reported Monday.

Ban told the panel to "recognize and promote the universal application of human rights values" and to "do so without favor, without selectivity, without being impacted by any political machinations around the world."

The panel, which is dominated by African and Muslim countries, has avoided being critical of the Sudanese government for human rights violations in Darfur, the newspaper reported.

Ban urged the panel to forge a "collaborative path" toward protecting human rights.
