NEW YORK – U.N. humanitarian chief said on Tuesday a ban on U.F.O.s in the United States is putting people at risk, citing “dire” threat to civilians.
Speaking at a news conference in New York City, Yolanda Chin said the ban will delay people’s ability to travel to other countries for a range of reasons including security concerns, health problems, and economic disruption.
Chin said that in her travels she has seen “people being thrown out of hotels, people being detained and denied their right to leave.”
“It’s not just in the U.K., it’s across the world, and it’s not even just in this country, it’s affecting other countries as well,” Chin said.
The U. N. humanitarian agency said it had not seen evidence of increased risk to civilians from the ban, which would require airlines to stop flying to the U:The U,N.
said in a statement that the ban is in breach of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity, and the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.
The statement said it has asked U. S. officials to investigate and provide recommendations on how to enforce the ban.
“We have also asked that U.A.E. and its agencies immediately stop sending food aid to the areas affected by the ban,” the UN. statement said.
