ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 11th Sep, 2018 ) :The Chairman Kashmir Council Europe (KCEU), Ali Raza Syed has hailed the statement of new United Nation High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, on the rights violations in Occupied Kashmir.

In a statement issued in Brussels, the KCEU Chairman welcomed her remarks and said that there should be an international investigation into human rights violations in occupied Kashmir and UN should play its role to stop these violations, KMS reported. All the criminals involved in human rights violations in Kashmir should be tried under international court of law, Ali Raza Syed, he said, adding that the international investigation into human rights violations was a long-standing demand of the people of Kashmir.
