Question of the Day
The unusual memo by Inga-Britt Ahlenius, a copy of which was obtained by the Associated Press, describes Mr. Ban as more concerned with preventing news leaks than with releasing possible criminal evidence to prosecutors.
It also details how she fought Mr. Ban’s efforts to set up a competing “new investigative capacity” within the United Nations.
The U.N.’s ability to police itself for major fraud and corruption is of concern to the United States and other major donors to the world organization, who worry whether the billions of dollars they contribute to improve the lives of the world’s poorest actually reach those most in need.
IMF cancels Haiti’s debt
PARIS | The International Monetary Fund says it has canceled Haiti’s $268 million debt and will lend the earthquake-devastated country another $60 million to help it with reconstruction plans.
The IMF said the decision is part of a plan for long-term reconstruction after the Jan. 12 magnitude 7 quake, which killed as many as 300,000 people.
The three-year loan carries a zero interest rate until 2011, which then rises to no more than 0.5 percent.
Lawmakers to revamp jurisdiction rule
LONDON | Britain will introduce new rules to make it harder for its courts to arrest foreigners accused of serious human rights violations, the Ministry of Justice said Thursday.
Britain subscribes to the doctrine of “universal jurisdiction,” which allows the prosecution of suspected war criminals in countries that have no direct connection with the events.
Activists have used the rule to seek arrest warrants for foreign dignitaries visiting Britain, leading to complaints by Gordon Brown, when he was prime minister, that the rule was jeopardizing the country’s foreign relations.
