UN Condemns Trump Blackwater Pardons As "Violation Of International Law"

Officials on a United Nations working group specializing in monitoring the role of mercenaries in conflicts on Wednesday blasted President Trump's pardons last week of four Blackwater contractors convicted of murdering unarmed Iraqi civilians as "an affront to justice".

"Pardoning the Blackwater contractors is an affront to justice and to the victims of the Nisour Square massacre and their families," said Jelena Aparac, who chairs a UN working group on the use of mercenaries. "These pardons violate U.S. obligations under international law and more broadly undermine humanitarian law and human rights at a global level."
