BBC Watch readers are of course well aware of the fact that we regularly find ourselves having to point out here that the BBC’s superficial representation of ‘international law’ with regard to the areas which came under Israeli control as a result of the 1967 Six Day War almost inevitably neglects to inform audiences of the fact that a range of international legal opinions exists on that subject.
Here, courtesy of the JCPA, is Dr Jacques Gauthier discussing his work titled “Sovereignty over the Old City of Jerusalem”. Dr Gauthier has served as legal counsel to various governments including the governments of France, Spain, Mexico and Canada. In 2000 he was knighted by the government of France as Chevalier de l’Ordre National du Mérite. Dr. Gauthier has been involved in the pursuit of human rights in China, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Myanmar and Canada. He has served as the Vice Chair, Acting Chair and President of the International Centre for Human Rights and Democratic Development (Canada).
