The United Nations has actually stood up for the rights of men!
As most MRAs know, the UN is an organization founded by Communists and their sympathizers.
And through UN initiatives such as CEDAW, this corrupt body has been working against the interests of men (not to mention American gun owners) for many a year.
While any good news is appreciated, MRAs must not allow this tiny concession to lull us into a false sense of security.
Thanks to Glenn Sacks and Men's News Daily for getting the word out.
I’m surprised and pleased to see the United Nations actually call attention to the terrible problem of false accusations in custody and the ponderous, anemic way family courts adjudicate such disputes. In this case a father was accused by his estranged wife of abusing his children, and police investigated for nearly two years before deciding not to prosecute. The father was still denied access to his children and the higher courts forbade his appeal.
Human rights lawyer Tony Ellis took this accused father’s case to the UN’s Human Rights Committee, and won. Ellis is a hero, and we need more attorneys like him. See the full story below:
Father denied justice by NZ courts, says UN

The Government now has three months to explain itself to the international body and offer a solution to the man.
Human rights lawyer Tony Ellis took the man’s case to the UN’s Human Rights Committee saying his client’s right to a fair trial had been ignored by the Family and then the Appeal Courts.
The man, who cannot be named due to the ongoing custody dispute, was accused in 2001 by his estranged wife of abusing his two daughters and then, later, abusing his son.
Police investigated for nearly two years, but decided not to prosecute.
The father was denied access to his daughters and the Court of Appeal refused leave to appeal the decision.
The man is still fighting for access to see his son in the Family Court.
The committee found the lengthy proceedings violated the father’s rights to a quick and fair trial in respect of his daughters and son...
