By RACHEL HAWKINSAssociated PressWASHINGTON (AP) The U.N. human rights chief has threatened to file a complaint against President Donald Trump for failing to address alleged racial discrimination in the U.K.’s publishing industry.
The U. S. Supreme court has begun to consider whether to review whether Trump violated the U,N.
Charter by not appointing a review body to oversee the U.’s bookshelves.
Human Rights Council says there is enough evidence to support a complaint but it has not been filed yet.
The council says its aim is to make sure that the U.,U.K. is taking full responsibility for the situation and that it has taken appropriate steps to protect its rights.
U.S.,Britain and France have argued that the council’s review body, which has been set up under the auspices of the U-N Human Rights Committee, lacks jurisdiction.
Britain said it is considering its options but that it does not plan to sue the U..
It’s the latest in a series of lawsuits that have brought to the surface widespread allegations of racism and the continued existence of segregation in Britain’s publishing industry, which had been in decline since the death of the last black Prime Minister.
The British government says it has tried to get the U to take measures, such as requiring all books to be signed by a single author, but has been unable to do so.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said that there is no discrimination against anyone, including people of color.
The British government argues that its bookstores are independent, not owned or controlled by a company.
Britain’s Culture Minister Anna Soubry said the government’s decision not to take any steps is a victory for everyone, including African Americans and others who have been fighting for years for better working conditions.
