SA Votes Against Rights Resolution

South Africa votes against adopting a resolution that would recognise threats against defenders of human rights

South Africa - along with 13 other countries including North Korea, Sudan, Syria, China, Russia and Zimbabwe – has voted against adopting a resolution that would recognise threats against defenders of human rights.
 
The declaration recognises, in international law, the extreme importance and legitimacy of human-rights activity, and those who carry it out.
 
The unanimity of the 1989 adoption of the declaration was broken after Norway asked to vote on it this week. There were 117 votes in favour of the resolution, 14 against and 40 abstentions.
