Sara got the toppings from the ministry of Agriculture and food to reduce the reindeer herd its like a part of a larger process to reduce the number of reindeer in Finnmark. The decision is that he must slaughter down his herd and live by the 75 reindeer, which is not economically feasible. Sara has lost the case in the Supreme court, but hope in the longest to get converted to the judgment, and has brought the case before the Un committee.Runar Myrnes Balto, Show more
The shock so very right now and that makes that the sámi society-now turn the ring about Jovsset Ante, is that while he is waiting for the Un treatment of the case, so he has received a letter from the state.
the letter states that he must slaughter a large part of his herd before new year's eve, before the Un committee considers the case. But if he slaughter the pack as the race is run for the young in his family. It is known not possible to bring the pack to life again on the judgment ultimately would be converted.David versus Goliath Debate
the Threat the state has hanging over him, is the fines that will ruin the young family's finances in the infinite future, and possibly send Sara out of the reindeer husbandry. The dilemma he faces is thus quite hopeless. Småbarnsfaren has in fact been given the choice to slaughter the herd to a number that he cannot live by, or to get huge fines as he sheds out in a hopeless economic situation at the same time as he is waiting for the right to self-determination.
This is both cold and hjerteløst of the state. But more serious for Norway as a nation, is the obvious contempt the government shows towards the UN and international law.
When you choose to execute a so absolute and irreversible judgment before the Un committee has considered the matter, as signalled in practice that you don't care what about the Un menneskerettighetsorganer says. The case is very embarrassing for Norway, which otherwise are very concerned that it must be possible to hold nations responsible for human rights violations in the international criminal justice system.Our time-the Alta-case Debate
We are many who are shocked over the brutal hjerteløsheten that appears opposite the Jovsset Ante Sara in this case, the signal Uk will send about how to look at the united nations and international law are say the least startling.
Parliament and the government now has the ability to delay the slakteordren until the case is finally processed, and I hope they take the chance and show Jovsset Ante Sara a little human compassion. Both the sami Parliament and a number of sami organizations have made strong decisions with the expectations of this. Norway can not continue with the brutal maktbruken towards young women and men who work with reindeer herding.
