South Africa’s Navi Pillay earned a reputation for naming and shaming nations when she was United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and she chided South Africa for its stances on the Ukraine and Syrian crises.
Pillay, who retired from the job last year, says in Johannesburg that the disaster in Libya after military intervention by NATO “has been used by people as a justification not to intervene in Syria.”
“It shouldn’t be like that. Each situation should be judged on its own. What’s important is that people are in danger of their lives; they are crying out for help. That help must be forthcoming,” she adds.
