Statement of the UNO Superior Commissar of human rights

   

UNO Superior Commissar of human rights Mary Robinson warned the NATO that this organization can become respondent in the International Tribunal for Yugoslavia, if the bombardments of civil population are considered military crimes. Mary Robinson pointed out that she considered incomparable ethnic purges in Kosovo and deaths of civil population during air raids of the NATO aviation. Nonetheless, Mary Robinson warned the NATO that it may not consider itself outside the jurisdiction of the international right. ‘It seems to me’, she said, closing the 55 thsession of the UNO Commission of human rights, ‘that it is necessary to attract attention of the world community to deaths of the civil population because of the bombardments’.
