One Year ago UN praised Gadhafi’s Human Rights Record – as Jason Ditz mentioned on March 03 2011

Anger Over Massacre of Protesters Will ‚Delay‘ Passing Report

Basic reason scored something of a victory today as the UN Human Rights Council announced that it was postponing the vote to affirm a report praising Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s regime for its human rights record.

The report (PDF 
A/HRC/16/15 Working Group on the Universal Periodic Review*
Libyan Arab Jamahiriya) said that the Gadhafi regime protected

not only political rights, but also economic, social and cultural rights,

The working Group report praised it for

  • the nation’s treatment of religious minorities, and
  • the “human rights training” received by security forces. 

It was to be approved at a vote later this month.

The report was written before

  • the massive public protests against the Gadhafi broke out
  • and started massacring protesters

The move to “postpone” the vote was met with some praise.

Why the vote was only delayed and not canceled entirely?

The UN has not made it clear when the new vote would be held?
