UNFCCC wants IMMUNITY before it plunders

by thepariah on June 12, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


'The organization responsible for managing a global cap-and-trade system worth billions of dollars for carbon emissions projects around the world is trying to get sweeping legal immunities for its actions, even as it plans to expand its activities dramatically in the wake of the United Nations’ Rio + 20 summit on sustainable development, which starts June 20.

Despite its name, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or UNFCCC, legal experts ruled in 2006 that it was not to be part of the U.N. system of organizations that has enjoyed diplomatic and legal immunities since the end of World War II. Now, it is scrambling to figure out how to get them. A meeting of a UNFCCC subsidiary in Bonn last month agreed to forward a new draft treaty covering the issue to another meeting in November.'

Yep, they are in charge of billions of dollars but do not want to be accountable in any way for what they do with that huge amount of money.

The UN organization was specifically set up to be outsize the zone of immunity, so there would be legal accountability for their actions.

Seems like they KNOW that they are going to be doing illegal things so now they want pre-emptive immunity for things like:

--possible conflicts of interest in their duties,

--breaches of confidentiality in their work,

--violations of the due process rights of those affected by UNFCCC actions,

--making decisions or actions that are beyond the legal mandate of the organization or its subsidiaries

Yep, this is the UN at its finest, working against the best interests of the world, and wanting to be safe from the consequences of it's dishonesty.
