Alan Shatter represented Ireland in Geneva. Right: The banner at Liberty Hall.

Draped over Liberty Hall for the last few days has been a huge banner advertising Justice Minister Alan Shatter's appearance yesterday before the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Ireland's appearance before this body has been flagged for months by mostly left-leaning NGOs, and with good reason. They know it will interpret the UN human rights treaties to which Ireland is a signatory in ways that will be to their taste.
