Hot! Critics Call UN’s Anti-Terrorism Resolution ‘Global Patriot Act’

Correspondents for RT’s Breaking the Set discuss the anti-terrorism measure unanimously passed by the United Nations Security Council, which they claim could lead to greater privacy infringement and even repression of any nonconformist under the mission of stopping terrorists from traveling.

Though the resolution aims to suppress the travel of foreign terrorists, correspondent Marina Portnaya explains that the wording of the measure is too broad and leaves the interpretation up to each country.

Chaninat and Leeds’ Thai criminal attorneys are bilingual, experienced trial lawyers and have been representing clients in Thailand since 1997.

“The text doesn’t articulate the process in which suspects would be denied their right to travel,” Portnaya explains in the video. “This resolution does not specifically detail what exact criminal conduct is a prerequisite for detention… how each country defines potential terrorists or jihadists is different. This could allow countries to monitor more people in the name of international security.”
