(NACIONES UNIDAS CINUP –  3 de Junio de 2011).-

 

Casi 20 años después de la Cumbre para la Tierra de 1992, el mundo se encuentra una vez más de camino a Río, ciudad que acogerá en junio de 2012 la Conferencia de las Naciones Unidas sobre el Desarrollo Sostenible. En las dos últimas décadas se han producido muchos cambios, tanto geopolíticos como en el medio ambiente.

MADRID, May (IPS)  Ha llegado el momento de plantarse, de decir con serenidad y firmeza que la humanidad no puede seguir padeciendo los inacabables estertores de un sistema que ha desembocado en la gravísima y múltiple crisis actual (social, financiera, alimentaria, medioambiental, política, democrática, ética…).

La moderna tecnología de la información permite hoy la participación no presencial. Y, por tanto, facilita la transición de una economía de especulación y guerra a una economía de desarrollo global sostenible.

El tiempo del silencio ha concluido. De ahora en adelante, delito de silencio.

Statement Attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General
Arrest of Ratko Mladic
New York, 26 May 2011

The Secretary-General welcomes today’s arrest of Ratko Mladic, former Commander of the army of Republika Srpska in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He commends President Tadic and the Serbian authorities for this significant step toward ending impunity for those indicted for serious violations of international humanitarian law during the conflict in the former Yugoslavia.

The Secretary-General’s thoughts today are first and foremost with the victims and their families, who have waited almost sixteen years for Mr. Mladic to be brought to justice for crimes including those committed at Srebrenica. This is a historic day for international justice and for the world’s collective fight against impunity. It sends a powerful message that those who are alleged to have committed crimes against humanity may try to evade justice but they will, in the end, be held accountable.

This important arrest will enable the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia to move closer to completing its mandate. Ending impunity is essential for reconciliation, sustainable peace and justice in the region.
