LETTER DATED 4 MAY 2017 FROM THE SECRETARY-GENERAL ADDRESSED TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL
She vomited that night
and reported losing her vision for five days. Even though the neighbour who had helped
clean took a shower and washed the clothing that she was wearing, she experienced
similar symptoms during the same time-frame.
(...) Some of these scars do appear similar to
thermal burns; however, it is possibly due to inadequate treatment.
5.25 The casualties described losing vision with gradual restoration of sight and a burning sensation
in the eyes, which is typical for sulfur mustard exposure; however, there was no indication of
blepharitis, which is a common condition.
5.26 Both patients complained of some shortness of breath and tightness in the chest.
5.27 Overall, the history, presentation of the casualties, and subsequent treatment appears to be
consistent with exposure to sulfur mustard.
REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE RIGHT TO FOOD ON HER MISSION TO ZAMBIA
Men and women
who have traditionally farmed the land within chiefdoms are losing their access to land.12
Farm Block Development Programme
44. (...) In
Zambia, 10 per cent of pregnant women have a less than ideal body weight.26 Deficient
maternal nutrition, especially during pregnancy, has a direct impact on a child’s
development and survival. Undernourished mothers are more likely to give birth to babies
of lower than normal weight, and those babies are more likely to die before the age of 5
years (see A/71/282).
NUCLEAR TEST BAN VERIFICATION
Verification of the initial inventory (declared store) is done by
(a) counting the number of containers or shells, and
(b) establishing the average content of such containers or shells by
- chemical analysis (representative samples) and
- weight measurement.
Since not all containers or shells can be examined, "random sampling"
leading most likely to a "normal distribution" curve should be employed to
determine the chemical contents and weight.
2. (...) Material balance at the destruction facility will be established through
feed measurement* weight, chemical composition, etc.,
waste (product) measurement* weight, flow rate, pressure, temperature
(...) If the
process involved is incineration of CWs contained in a shell, measurement of
material (in weight) and the subsequent analysis of discharged waste may be
either on a continuous basis or according to some statistical sampling.
REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, ITS CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES, RASHIDA MANJOO :ADDENDUM
This reinforces the
idea of men “losing their property” to another man.43 Another challenge is the lack of
provisions regarding a woman’s entitlement to the matrimonial property after divorce,
which puts them at risk of being left destitute, especially considering that their contribution
to the household is usually through non-remunerated domestic work and child care. 44
Women are also at risk owing to the lack of specific criteria in the Act regarding the
allocation of maintenance payments for divorced women and their children.

Assistance was not provided with help for patients
who needed it to eat and drink causing de-hydration and weight loss. Some wards and
toilets were left in a filthy condition and patients were subjected to rough and painful
handling. (...) In one case, an older woman with Huntingdon’s disease suffered dramatic weight
loss because care workers simply left food and drink next to her, even though she was
physically unable to feed herself. In another case, an older man with dementia lost so much
weight due to not being given support to eat by home care workers that he was admitted to
hospital and died three days later.9
The EHRC therefore endorses the conclusions and recommendations of the Special
Rapporteur in particular that "examining abuses in health-care settings from a torture

NOTE VERBALE DATED 2008/03/10 FROM THE PERMANENT MISSION OF MYANMAR TO THE UNITED NATIONS OFFICE AT GENEVA ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARIAT OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL

as genetic factor, eating habits, food choices, etc are also led to turn out a child under-weight. All
malnourished children are under-weight but not all under-weight children are malnourished

REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE RIGHT TO EDUCATION, VERNOR MUNOZ VILLALOBOS : ADDENDUM
The Special Rapporteur also notes that the enforcement of compulsory education in
Mongolia does not carry any weight, since there are no penalty clauses provided for non-
compliance. (...) At the same time, rural areas are losing their once stable populations. The migration
to cities has thus brought new challenges to the education sector, by substantially increasing
demand for school services in urban centres.
