interesting - i heard this too. So exactly what jurisdiction does the UN have? Can they compel testimony, order discovery, bring and prosecute charges - anything like a civil or criminal trial under our US legal system? would they bring suit within Federal Court? Could someone describe how they make an argument for having standing in such a case?
I can see no way that they could do anything. GZ is a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil. Any ruling they make would only be symbolic. The only catch I can see is that it might be possible for them to make it unsafe for him to travel outside U.S. jurisdiction.
