Human Rights Watch on Tuesday expelled UN investigator Richard Falk from one of its committees, UN Watch reported.
UN Watch had called for Human Rights Watch to dismiss Falk, citing condemnation against him for spreading anti-Semitism and 9/11 conspiracies by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay.
"We commend Human Rights Watch and its director Kenneth Roth for doing the right thing, and finally removing this enemy of human rights from their important organization," said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch.
"A man who supports the Hamas terrorist organization, and who was just condemned by the British Foreign Office for his cover endorsement of a virulently antisemitic book, has no place in an organization dedicated to human rights," said Neuer.
