    Policy briefing

    Re-establishing fumigation is not going to legitimise or win acceptance of the State's activities in the territory of the Park.

These include questionable legal reasoning by the Board; the absence of broader human rights norms; problematic statements on specific issues; unqualified comments and support for policies despite human rights risks; and stigmatising language unbecoming a UN entity. These are patterns that are evident in previous Annual Reports.
