The Castro regime is opposing a U.N. report alleging North Korea has committed crimes against humanity.
The report, first released on February 17, singles out the "Supreme Leader" of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, of Nazi-era atrocities and said officials should face the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Such crimes include instances of “extermination,” murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape, forced abortions, persecution, the forcible transfer of populations, enforced disappearances and the inhumane act of knowingly causing prolonged starvation."
Castro rejected the independent commission of inquiry, led by famed Australian jurist Michael Kirby, which was established last year by the UN’s Human Rights Council to investigate the “systematic, widespread and grave violations of human rights” in North Korea.
Last week, the U.N.'s Panel of Experts also released a report showing Cuba colluded with North Korea's regime in the smuggling of illegal weaponry.
Anayansi Rodríguez Camejo, Cuba's Ambassador to the U.N. in Geneva, argued that "such an imposition does not help dialogue."
Blank checks and impunity are the type of "dialogue" the Castro's (and Kim) prefer.
