Israel’s UN envoy Ron Prosor left a UN session on Monday in protest when Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took the podium. Ahmadinejad was present to speak about the rule of law in a session on the subject.
Prosor said inviting the Iranian leader to speak on the subject is like “appointing a pyromaniac as fire chief,” saying he is “a serial violator of the fundamental principles of the rule of law”.
“It is a shame and disgrace to give someone like him the opportunity to speak on such an important topic,” Prosor said. “There is no justice and no judge.”
