DISINFO: UN Commissioner Michelle Bachelet is trying to downplay police repression in Chile


UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and former Chilean president Michelle Bachelet is downplaying the police repression in Chile, because there is a preferential treatment for certain governments who are allied to hegemonic powers.


The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights showed concern regarding the situation in Chile since the beginning of the protests, and on October 24 she announced that having monitored it, she had decided to send a verification mission. See similar cases alleging a supposed UN bias against Venezuelan government, and accusing the UNHCR of disinformation campaigns in Syria or the Czech Republic.
