CAP Liberté de Conscience shares its deep concerns with Human Rights Without Frontiers which has documented, for the International Criminal Court, the grave responsibility of Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia in the outbreak and extension of Russia’s war on Ukraine.
CAP calls upon the U.N. to collaborate with the ICC which is currently busy evidencing war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Ukraine and identifying the perpetrators to be held accountable.
The Civil Society Coalition believes that the war in Ukraine will stop when the Russian people are able to express their opposition to it. We therefore urge the Human Rights Council, the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Secretary-General along with all other relevant UN human rights mandate-holders and special procedures to speak out and demand the release of all prisoners of conscience detained by the Russian Federation for the crime of opposing its aggression in Ukraine.
Side Event to the 49th Session of the UN Human Rights Council Roundtable Discussion
We would like to draw the attention of the Council and the Subcommittee on the prevention of torture with regard to the human rights situation in Russia, a country requesting from Montenegro the extradition of a Ukrainian citizen.
We have learned that egregious crimes such as forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners has occurred for over two decades in the People’s Republic of China. Irrefutable evidence has been gathered and led to a unanimous judgement. The international community appears to be overwhelmed in the handling of crimes against humanity to the extent that the values of our civilization are at stake. Humankind has to decide if it accepts or rejects the killing of human beings for forced organ harvesting or other exploitations.
