UN approves accreditation for PRC
July 21, New York: The United Nations has approved UN accreditation to London based Palestinian Return Center (PRC) on Monday.
The center was accused by Israel to have been affiliated to Hamas and openly supported terrorism but the former describes itself as an independent consultancy that works for the Palestinian refugees. It has announced that the it would start legal action against Israel UN Mission for defamation.
The UN committee that accredits non-governmental organisations and NGOs had recommended the center’s application to be approved. But Israel in support with United states, Canada and and Australia circulated a resolution to the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) opposing the consultative status. On Mondy, 16 countries opposed Israel‘s proposal, 13 supported it and 18 abstained, resulting to the approval of the application of the center.
