CCLP WORLDWIDE ATTENDED TO THE OPENING DAY OF THE 23RD SESSION OF THE COUNCIL OF HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE UNITED NATIONS.
CCLP Worldwide attended to the opening day of the 23rd session of the Council of Human Rights of the United Nations. 

NAVI PILLAY, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that she hoped that the Council would be able to take tangible action to stop the escalation of violence in Syria, which had become an intolerable affront to the human conscience. Ms. Pillay also expressed concern about ongoing violence in other regions of the world. In addition, the global financial crisis, which had not been borne by those who were primarily responsible for it, had increased inequalities and undermined the fabric of society.Regarding the work of non-governmental organizations, Ms. Pillay said that it was depressing to observe policy debates and legislative measures which severely undermined non-governmental organizations in many countries around the world. Civil society remained vital to advancing the human rights agenda both at the national level and internationally.

In this framework, The Delegation headed by Bertrand Thibert was representing CCLP Worldwide as accredited NGO, with Special Consultative Status to UN ECOSOC. The opening debate was the opportunity to several NGO to provide their own statements and points of view, about the general situation of Human Rights in the world, the particular situation in Syria or the specific topics of the afternoons : access to health and rights of the migrants.

Due to extra discussions on the Syria conflict, the CCLP Worldwide delegates were not in a situation to declaim their statement, which finally was delivered as a written statement to all present delegations.

General Warning
CCLP Worldwide is an International Organization having special Consultative status with United Nations Economic and Social Council (2012).As per the bye laws and charter of the organization The International council is the only supreme body of CCLP Worldwide which can take decisions of the affairs of CCLP Worldwide.
The International Council represented by members from all continents is headed and chaired by International Chairman.
The International Chairman as per charter is the head of the organization. The office of International Chairmanship is co-chaired by three Co-Chairpersons duly elected from International Council.
Consul General Prof. Dr. Lamartine Hollanda Junior from Brazil is first International Co-Chairman of the organization.
Prof. Dr. Paul Ratnayake from Switzerland is second International Co-Chairman of the organization.
Dr. Vikrant Singh from India is third International Co-Chairman of the Organization and also statutory trustee of the Trust.

There is no post like "president” Chief Executive” or "Head of the Council” etc in CCLP Worlddwide and any representation as president or any other post which denotes head of the organization is bogus, false and misrepresented with malafide intention.
General public ,members and supporters are cautioned to take note of this and immediately inform the international secretariat if they find someone purportedly representing our organization as head of the Council or CCLP Worldwide
The International Council graciously welcomes Noted Diplomat and Educator H.E. Mr. G. Irving Levance as Chief Observer of CCLP Worldwide at United N

His Excellency G. Irving Levance,  Chief Observer, International Council, CCLP Worldwide at United Nations, Geneva.

After Secondary School he served in the Army from 1984 to 1991, specializing in  reconnaissance and counter terrorism. He became self employed on return to civilian
life and applied his military methodologies to business.He has well developed leadership and interpersonal skills and an ability to select appropriate talent and extract the best from it through delegation.  His business prowess saw him build up and sell on several worldwide businesses, ranging from property development, tourism, e-commerce ventures, service industry  and digital communications. This allowed him to effectively retire in 2010 at the age  of 43. He was head-hunted for the job of Secretary General of the Intergovernmental  Organization EDU because of his leadership skills and business contacts in the South  Pacific. He applies the same rigorous standards to that organization as he did in the military and in business.
