Catherine Colonna, the former French foreign minister, is speaking at the UN about the independent investigation she led into UNRWA. “UNRWA plays an indispensable and irreplaceable role in the region,” she said. She said the UN agency had a “significant number of mechanisms and procedures to ensure compliance with the humanitarian principle of neutrality” and UNRWA had a “more developed system than other UN organisations or agencies”. One recommendation is that UNRWA regularly shares digitalised lists of employees with host countries and Israel. She says host countries and Israel would need to provide screening results and evidence if there are any red flags.
