Distinguished President, Excellencies,
Over the past ten days, many delegations have shared with me their alarm about the growing disarray in many countries. And among other issues, I have raised with many of them my concerns about arrests, harassment and spurious prosecutions of journalists, activists, political opponents and human rights defenders.

GENEVA, 16 April (UN Information Service) -- United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson this afternoon told the Commission on Human Rights that refugees from Kosovo were telling members of her staff that Serbian police and paramilitary forces were continuing with their campaign of terror.
High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson told correspondents gathered for a 'press opportunity' at the Palais des Nations this afternoon that she had found it necessary to brief the Commission on Human Rights about the very serious situation in Kosovo, the desperate plight of people there and the serious allegations of violations of human rights. She would brief the Commission weekly for the remainder of the current session. It was important that there be reporting of the situation.
Highlighting the need for impartial verification of allegations of ethnic cleansing in Kosovo and for ensuring accountability for established violations, the United Nations Human Rights Commissioner, Mary Robinson, said on Thursday she would take immediate steps to help deal with those issues.
