Amnesty Int'l: Bring Goldstone Report to vote 'without delay'

Amnesty Intl Bring Gol

Amnesty International on Friday expressed "concern" that a decision to delay voting on the Goldstone Report until March next year indicated a "lack of political will to deal robustly with issues of accountability for violations of international humanitarian law and human rights law in Gaza and southern Israel." In a statement published on the internet, Amnesty called on UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to "refer the report to the UN Security Council without delay." The comments came after the Palestinian Authority agreed late Thursday night to delay the vote which would have endorsed the report. Tovah Lazaroff contributed to this report
