GENEVA—The Geneva-based human rights organization UN Watch, which is accredited by the United Nations as a non-governmental organization in special consultative status with a mandate to monitor the world body’s adherence to the principles of its Charter, today sent the following letter to UK Prime Minister Theresa May, urging her government to consider expelling disgraced ex-UN official Richard Falk, whom it has officially condemned three times for antisemitism.

Dear Prime Minister May,
In a recent speech, you said, “I made sure we kept extremism—including the sort that peddles anti-Semitic vitriol—out of our country,” and you cited your barring of antisemites like Dieudonné, and your expulsion of terror supporters like Abu Hamza and Abu Qatada.
In that regard, we wish to inform you that Mr. Richard Falk—a disgraced ex-UN official who was officially denounced by the United Kingdom on at least three separate occasions for antisemitism, and whose glorification of the Hamas terrorist group was so severe that the Palestinian Authority sought to expel him from the UN—is currently in your country, and is planning to speak this week at various events in London.
We urge your government to examine the following facts and legal precedents, and to consider whether to expel this exponent of antisemitism and glorifier of Jihadist terrorism from the UK.
