After dozens of countries railed against Australia’s treatment of refugees and indigenous people at a United Nations meeting this month, North Korea is also jumping in to say that it’s “gravely concerned” about human rights in Australia — despite its own long-documented record of abuses.

 

On Wednesday, a senior North Korean foreign ministry issued three recommendations for Canberra to improve its handling of race issues, detainees and disabled citizens.

 

“The DPRK delegation is gravely concerned about the continued human rights violations in Australia [and] the infringement upon international human rights law,” said Han Tae Song, the DPRK’s Ambassador to the United Nations.

 

Speaking at the U.N.’s Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of Human Rights in Geneva, Han also said that Australia should “end deep-rooted racism, racial discrimination and xenophobia on the basis of ethnic, racial, cultural or religious background in the public sphere.”

 

He also brought up  “cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment in public places of detention” such as “sexual violence” and “routine strip searches” in Australia.

Most recent one I can think of is Peter Dutton, our Home Affairs minister, finally let out 65 refugees that have been in detention for over 7 years. Not because of the mounting pressure to release them (which there has been a lot of), but because he sees it as a cheaper option to let them out on 6 month visas with a once off payment of $307 then to keep them locked up any longer.

Not to mention the detention centres on Manus Island, Christmas Island, and Nauru that are clear human rights violations, with deaths often occurring.

Australia also has a real insidious problem with police brutality towards First Nations people. The rate of death in police custody is egregious.

 

The one topic that seems to be gaining the world's attention lately, though, is the fact the age of criminal responsibility in our country is 10 years old.

Isn't his country literally known to have the worst human rights record in the world? Why is he worried about us? :deadbanana2:
