Resignation letter

“It has become untenable for me, as a special envoy, to ask other states to respect and fulfill their international obligations while the United Kingdom claims that it has no intention of doing so,” explained the British-Lebanese lawyer, specializing in human rights, in his letter of resignation to Chancellor Dominic Raab.

“It is regrettable that the UK says it intends to violate an international treaty signed by the prime minister less than a year ago,” he added. “This threatens encouraging autocratic regimes to violate international law with devastating consequences around the world. “

The activist, wife of American actor George Clooney, was appointed in 2019 to this position, which she described as “helping the UK to defend press freedom around the world.”

So far, Boris Johson has won a first vote in the House of Commons.
