Tibet has been listed among nine countries and one territory with the worst human rights conditions in the world in the latest annual report, released Jun 3, of Freedom House.The report, Worst 2010:The World’s Most Repressive Societies, lists the 10 as Burma, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Libya, North Korea, Somalia, Sudan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tibet.The report identifies the world’s most flagrant human rights abusers and was released at a side panel during the 14th session of the UN Human Rights Council, Geneva. The ten worst abusers received the lowest possible score of 7 (based on a 1 to 7 scale, with 1 representing the most free and 7 representing the least free) on both political rights and civil liberties.

An additional eight countries, including China, and two territories scored only slightly better, with a score of 7 in political rights and a score of 6 in the civil liberties category. Besides China, they included Belarus, Chad, Cuba, Guinea, Laos, Saudi Arabia, and Syria.

The UN Human Rights Council was established in 2006 to replace the widely discredited UN Commission on Human Rights. However, only a handful of “Worst of the Worst” states—Burma (Myanmar), Guinea, Somalia, Sudan and North Korea—have so far been the focus of resolutions or special sessions by the UN body.

“While it is shameful that three of the ‘Worst of the Worst’ regimes now actually sit on the Council (China, Cuba and Saudi Arabia) and a fourth (Libya) was just elected, we nonetheless call on the member states of the Council to fulfill their mandate and take actions to address the systemic abuses in these countries,” Paula Schriefer, director of advocacy at Freedom House, said.
