AMMONNEWS - Several countries appear to be finding excuses to violate human rights, the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Prince Zaid Bin Ra'ad said late Monday.

At a press briefing in Geneva, the UN official voiced deep concern over the use of rhetoric by states that they can "solve problems" and find ways around lawful safeguards.

"Violations by non-state actors of human rights norms and of international law do not, and should not serve as grounds for violations thereby by government actors," he said.

The commissioner for Human Rights also spoke out against the impact of human rights violations on the lives of people that result in increasing the suffering around the world.

In his remarks, he also expressed concern over the renewed state of emergency and violations of human rights in many countries urging the international community to protect and promote human rights of everyone.
