Law Body Seeks Payment From China For Making Exemplary Damages To World
The London-based International Council of Jurists has urged the UN Human Rights Council to make China pay "exemplary damages" for its "grave offences against humanity", alleging the coronavirus pandemic is primarily a conspiracy of Beijing to catapult itself as a superpower.
"Chinese government's inaction in arresting the spread of the virus has resulted in recession across the world and loss of trillions of dollars and rendered jobless to millions of workers in India and rest of the world," ICJ President Adish C Aggarwala said.
It remains a mystery as to how the virus has not spread in all provinces of China but at the same time, has spread to all countries in the world, he said.
He urged the Geneva-based human rights body's intervention to hold China, its army and the Wuhan-based land responsible for the spread of the virus, which has killed over 50,000 people globally and brought the world to a grinding halt.
