Francesca Albanase

We're live with Francesca Albanese, the new United Nations Special Rapporteur for the Occupied Palestinian Territory (oPt).

Mark Seddon will be hearing just what such a role entails at the UN and what powers are granted to it.

We will also hear the latest on ongoing cases including the search for justice for the incarcerated Ahmad Manasra & Mohammed El-Halabi, the latest on the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh as well as hearing the international legal perspective on Israel's ongoing colonisation of Masafer Yatta.
