Giorgos Bizos –Nelson Mandela’s greek lawyer- is due to visit Australia for a series of lectures on Human Rights in South Africe.
As expat lawyer and organisor of the visit, George Georgiou of Perth announced, George Bizos will be arriving at the end of the month with his son Alex, and will be giving lectures in all the large cities. Refering to the situation of human rights in South Africa, mr. Bizos noted:
“Most dictators in Africa, although considered by themselves elected leaders, only make a mention of human rights without truly believing in them. Neither does their Parliament nor their governments have any respect for human rights. They also claim that human rights as proclaimed in 1948 by the U.N. are for Western Democracies. They try to place on the map of rights a different democracy, an African democracy. They claim that African nations are not ready for democratic principles. That is an insult to the people of Africa.”
