Ένα blog ενάντια στο χειρότερο δημιούργημα του Δεξιού Κράτους της προ του 1974 εποχής: του αριστερού ψευτοδιανοούμενου. Με άλλα λόγια, αυτού που μπορεί μεν να είναι βολεμένος του συστήματος αλλά που έχει το θράσος να υποστηρίζει ότι το πολεμά και που προβάλλεται ως στοχαστής. Βασικό χαρακτηριστικό του, η απουσία γραβάτας, η αξύριστη μάπα, η απέχθεια προς τη ντουσιέρα και, φυσικά, οι φουσκωμένες δεξιές τσέπες. antikoultouriaris@gmail.com

Helsinki Federation Shuts Down After Fraud Scandal

By Claire Bigg
In mid-November, members and supporters of the International Helsinki Federation for Human Rights (IHF) converged on the Finnish capital to mark the group's 25th anniversary.


The gathering, however, was no occasion for celebration. The Vienna-based headquarters of the human rights movement announced its likely closure over a massive fraud scandal in which the IHF's former finance manager confessed to having embezzled some 1.2 million euros ($1.76 million) from its budget.


The offense was uncovered in September after going undetected for several years. The case goes to trial in January.


"The executive committee and a number of other supporters of the organization did everything they could to try and find a solution that would allow the IHF to continue its work," says Holly Cartner, who works for Human Rights Watch and served on IHF's executive committee. "But unfortunately, we were not able to find sufficient resources to pay for the debt, and as a result the IHF decided to declare bankruptcy."


The group's treasurer, president, vice president, and executive committee all immediately handed in their resignations over the scandal. The IHF shut down its office earlier this month, sealing the demise of one of the world's best-known rights watchdogs, which in recent years has focused much of its energy on documenting rights abuses in Belarus, Central Asia, and the North Caucasus."
