McBride family take case to UN

Eamonn McCann has news of a new development in the Peter McBride case:

Mrs. McBride and the PFC wrote last week to Armanda Benavides de Perez, Colombian chairwoman of the UN’s new Working Group on the Use of Mercenaries (WGUM), asking her to consider whether the issues arising from the Aegis video come within the working group’s remit. The WGUM was established on June 16 at the inaugural meeting in Geneva of the Human Rights Council, (presided over by Kofi Annan,) which has replaced the long-standing UN Human Rights Commission.
