Brazil Slams Rights Abuses by West

In an address to the Brazilian Senate on Thursday, Patriota criticized “developed countries” for their history of human rights abuses and urged them to re-examine their rights practices.

"The debate on human rights is polarized between north and south, as if only developed countries had something to teach developing countries. It is a mistaken conception, because the worst abuses were committed by developed countries," Xinhua quoted Patriota as saying.

The Brazilian foreign minister also slammed the duplicitous attitude of the developed and Western countries towards other nations regarding human rights.

In October of last year, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for the first time called on the United States to shut down its notorious Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba over accusations of human rights violations in the detention facility.

Council members in Geneva, Switzerland called for the closure of the prison and for investigations into alleged torture by US troops deployed abroad.

Former and current detainees at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp have reportedly been abused and tortured on numerous instances.

According to a new study published online on the PloS Medicine website, medical and psychological evaluations have basically proved allegations of torture and abuse at the detention center.

The US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have also caused huge civilian casualties in both countries.
