The analyst says the resolution on Nicaragua at the UN is wrong

Exclusively with Brenza Latina, Gonzஸ்lez noted the political bias and interference in the mechanism, which he said was unacceptable because it was unconstitutional.

Last week the aforementioned organization approved a resolution establishing a panel of three experts to investigate possible human rights violations in Central America from April 2018.

The document received 20 votes in favor, 7 votes against and 20 abstentions.

In this sense, the law professor at the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua (UNAN-Managua) also stressed that the council has little legitimacy when dealing with the human rights agenda.

“When we talk about legitimacy, we are talking about something institutional, that is, international relations are rational and consensual, but, above all, countries organize themselves so that UN experts can guarantee the application of policies to all cities,” he explained.

Gonzalez described the agenda as colonial, saying it was a discredited tactic against left-wing governments in the region.

“When they appoint election, human rights or any other kind of monitoring commissions, they are colonial tactics to establish a position based on the hegemony of the North,” he said.

The researcher has a paradoxical aspect to this matter, namely that he was recently appointed Vice President of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization for his work on food sovereignty in the Nicaraguan region.

“Obviously, the guarantee of life, food sovereignty, is not a human right for the United Nations. Therefore, it is not an agenda that seeks to assert these rights in an integrated way, but seeks to impose its hegemony, ”he commented.

The university professor noted the events in Central American country in 2018, and the Chandinista government called two commissions to look into the conflict that existed at the time.

“Then there was a definite fact, but now we are at peace, so there is no reason to allow that delegation, to accept it would be to violate our own constitution,” he concluded.

Last Thursday, the government of President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo rejected any resolution passed at the UN Human Rights Council against Managua for lack of political basis.

The Nicaraguan executive called on the people not to focus or base these resolutions on misinformation and hate media campaigns.
