Supreme Court could hear groundbreaking case that challenges the UN’s immunity

closevideo what would President Trump to say, on the question of the freedom of religion, taking into account the UN General Assembly?

The protection of the religious freedom issue number one is during the tenure of President Donald Trump’s address to the UN General Assembly. According to Tony Perkins of the family Research Council, the President is a difficult challenge in front of him. So, what President Trump should say, when it comes to the world of the body? Tony Perkins is here to discuss.

As world leaders descend on New York for this year is to enjoy the U. N. General Assembly, the immunity, the organization called on the U.S. Supreme Court.

After a devastating earthquake in 2010, Nepal’s peace sent troops to help, instead the Cholera in Haiti – brought unknown disease, the then the country. Waste from the peacekeepers’ HQ leaked into the local river and ended up being responsible for ten thousand deaths, with hundreds of thousands of contact.


“My father and my stepmother died, because the U. N. brought cholera to Haiti.” Mary Laventure, the lead plaintiff in the case, told Fox News in an E-Mail.

Laventure wants her day in court.

“Many other Haitians, including Haitian-Americans, also died. This may be the last chance for justice for violating those of the U. N. actions. The U. N. needs to be made responsible, so that you know, there are consequences for the damage they cause, in places such as Haiti,” she said.

The plaintiffs hope the judge will hear your case when they start their next session in October.

Edward Flaherty, a Geneva-based lawyer, submitted an amicus brief to the Supreme court of justice, on behalf of the Swiss NGO, Hear their cries, told Fox News that if the case is allowed to take the exam, it “is, the court may examine, finally, the legality of UN immunity.”

Flaherty pointed to a case from the last session of the court as a reason to be hopeful that the judge set a precedent that has guided so far, most governments, including the United States, enjoyed for the most part once the immunity of the U. N.

Haitians make their way through the puddled street in Port-au-Prince, November 19, 2010.

“The court has recently decided a case in its last term in office against the International Finance Corp, an arm of the world Bank, which enjoys a similar immunity to the United Nations, the court suggested, it does not deny terribly sympathetic to the laws that are parties to the case has done its day in court – as the UN immunity, the injured Haitians.”

In 2016, after years of avoidance of responsibility and apology by the then U. N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the people in Haiti for the United Nations’ role in the outbreak of cholera, tells a meeting: “We just didn’t have enough to do, with regard to the cholera epidemic and its distribution in Haiti. We are deeply sorry for our role.”

James Haggerty, the lead counsel in the case to be brought, in the name of the applicants, told Fox News that, in spite of the U. N., the certification process and the promise of, has been compensated a 400 million Dollar Fund, not a victim.

“The Secretary-General has the responsibility, stating that the evidence showed, the U. N., caused the death and the disease that ravaged Haiti, apologized, and accepted. All of the arguments, you haven’t accepted the responsibility for what they did to the people in Haiti, a fiction. And they had agreed in advance to accept the liability in these situations.”

Haggerty continues: “The Foundation was announced, with great fanfare, but to my knowledge it has collected a little over 5%. These trust funds are nothing more than PR stunts — a voluntary surrender of the hat. The UN acts like they are guilty of Haiti only voluntary acts of kindness, but as a commitment to compensation to the victims of this plague. Therefore, the trust Fund sitting in the near empty, while the victims of the UN with a view suffer from lack of more. “Responsibility is not a charitable action. It is an enforceable obligation. We believe that the Supreme Court will agree.”

A spokesman for the U. N. Secretary-General asked why the world body to continue to hide behind the immunity in the Laventure-mentioned case Fox News back to the previous statements on the subject.


Courtney Smith, Acting Dean of the School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University, told Fox News that the logic for the granting of immunity to international organizations ” to facilitate their ability to carry out their duties free from interference by the governments of the places they operate.”

He continued: “These obstacles are insurmountable, to hinder, if national governments and local actors are able to your work by legal restrictions and threats of politically motivated prosecution.

“That being said, the immunity must be balanced with responsibility. It can’t be, a license or an excuse for the behavior that is detrimental to the reputation and impartiality of the organization. Although the immunity is a legal principle, rests their actual implementation often based on political calculations.”


Haggerty’s hopeful the judge will hear his case. “It is a knee-jerk reaction to a lawsuit against the United Nations -that they are immune because they have always been immune. We fear that ‘s why it’ s a hearing in the public hearing of this case was never. We hope that the U.S. Supreme court to maintain our right to be heard.”

Meanwhile, Flaherty has to represent who several U. N. whistleblowers of corruption and retaliation cases to the world body, said a court decision in which the plaintiff would have fallen, paving the way in the reform of the United Nations draconian practices.

“If it succeeds, the challenge in Laventure U. N. immunity will force the U. N. to drastically reform the corrupt practices and the roots of their rogue employees, or else face a tsunami of lawsuits in the United States, if not in the other countries around the world, where it works, what could be a threat to its existence.


Flaherty concluded, “American taxpayers should demand no less of a humanitarian organization like the U. N. than he demands of multi-national companies operating within their borders–follow the local laws, or pay the civil and criminal consequences, if you don’t!!”

Haggerty warned: “The next Haiti is out there waiting just to happen. Full immunity is a cancer that is rotting the UN at the core.”
