Rights record under scrutiny in UN seat bid

SMH: 22 Mar 09:
“PRIME MINISTER Kevin Rudd’s dream of winning a
UN Security Council seat might be dashed by international
concerns about Australia’s record on human rights.
Australia’s poor treatment of its indigenous population and
refugees will come under scrutiny by an international human
rights watchdog, amid continuing lobbying for a seat on the
prestigious UN body that oversees military and peace-keeping
operations.”
