    If you don't like the UNHCR (and just about every other human rights group there is) criticising you for abuses, stop doing the abusing. And, if you don't want to be cited more often than China (and I'd be curious to see if the statistics actually backed up that claim, so many similar claims turn out to not have a factual basis), quit trying to promote yourself as the perfect society. It is like the 'faith and fidelity' politicians claiming that the attention their affairs get is a sign of bias against them, rather than the result of their actions and claims.
