DAVOS, SWITZERLAND | Governments that call themselves democratic often fear democracy in practice, leaving it up to their people to seize the initiative, as last year's Arab Spring revolutions across the Arab world have shown.
The executive director of Human Rights Watch criticized United Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for calling the killing of Osama bin Laden an act of justice, saying that the Al Qaeda leader was denied due process.
Human Rights Watch singled out U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for especially harsh criticism Monday as it took world leaders to task for what it called their failure to be tougher on human rights offenders.
He said that the council retains the power to condemn governments by name with a majority vote, and said that the worst offenders would probably not be able to hide behind one another.
"Overall it's not ideal, but it's much better than we feared and it's certainly something we can live with," he said of the compromise.
