Climate Fund Seeks UN-Style Diplomatic Immunity

But it’s not even part of the United Nations.

Fox News reports:

The Green Climate Fund, which is supposed to help mobilize as much as $100 billion a year to lower global greenhouse gases, is seeking a broad blanket of UN-style immunity that would shield its operations from any kind of legal process, including civil and criminal prosecution, in the countries where it operates.

There is just one problem: it is not part of the United Nations…

Even if UNFCCC members decided to ask the UN General Assembly to grant them similar immunity it would require each UN member state to make changes in domestic legislation, the opinion declared.

According to an official of the US Treasury, which strongly supports the existence of the GCF, the full extent of the immunities still remains to be worked out by the fund board, although the wording of various UNFCCC resolutions indicate that immunities like those held by the UN are clearly envisaged.

  1. Why would the US Treasury ‘strongly support’ the existence of the GCF, as is claimed in the article? Is there a plausible relationship between the GCF and the agency’s mission? I don’t see it.

  2. No way these thieves and liars should get any immunity!! Most of them should already be in jail, especially king Obama!!!
