SUMMARY RECORD OF THE 10th MEETING

President: Mr. DE ALBA ............ (Mexico)
The meeting was called to order at 3.10 p.m.
10. Ms. HASSASSIAN (Observer for Palestine) said that a footnote contained in the annex to Human Rights Council decision 2006/102 indicated that the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories occupied since 1967 had been established until the end of the occupation. Regrettably, the occupation continued to inflict daily suffering on the Palestinian people and to deprive them of many of their basic rights, including the right to life. The Council should closely monitor the occupation and the egregious human rights violations committed in Palestine.
