Eleven members of the Estonian Parliament, called the Riigikogu, sent a letter to WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to provide notification of the country’s rejection of the International Health Regulation (2005) Amendments and the international agreement on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.

“Hereby the Republic of Estonia, on the basis of Article 22 of the Constitution of the World Health Organisation, declares that it rejects and does not consent to the international agreement on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response, as well as complementary amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005) and improving the sustainability of financing of WHO,” the letter dated November 22, 2023, stated.

The reasons for rejection and not consenting are the following:

  1. According to Article 121 of the Constitution of the Republic of Estonia, treaties of the Republic of Estonia are ratified and denounced only by the 101-member Parliament the Riigikogu. The Riigikogu has not passed such a resolution.
  2. Taking into account the provisions of Clause 1, the resolution of 4 March 2022 of the European Union Affairs Committee, formed at the Riigikogu, which authorised the European Commission to negotiate on behalf of the Republic of Estonia on the international agreement on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response, as well as
    complementary amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005) and on improving the sustainability of financing of WHO, is therefore null and void.
  3. In the light of Clauses 1 and 2, the resolution of the European Union Affairs Committee of 4 March 2022 is null and void from the moment of its adoption as only nine (9) members of the Riigikogu out of one hundred and one (101) members of the Riigikogu voted in favour of this resolution.

Door To Freedom writes:

In order to reject the amendments approved by the World Health Assembly in May 2022, a nation must send a letter of rejection before the end of November 2023. (This month.) Estonia’s letter is an example of this.

The May 2022 Amendments reduce the amount of time a nation has to reject future amendments.

Please read “What Countries can do Right Now to Slow Down the WHO’s Global Coup” by Dr. Meryl Nass, available in multiple languages.

In May of 2024, we expect the World Health Assembly to approve the 300+ amendments of serious concern, which include:

  • Striking out human rights and replacing it with equity
  • Biological warfare agent proliferation
  • Social Media surveillance and censorship
  • Ongoing secret negotiations; we do not know what the amendments will contain until they are approved

“Dr Tedros said governments and multilateral partners have already commenced building the foundations for a safer world, with the establishment of the Pandemic Fund, the WHO Hub for Pandemic and Epidemic Intelligence, the WHO BioHub to voluntarily share novel biological materials, and the mRNA vaccine technology transfer hub,” the WHO wrote in a September 2023 press release.

“However, Dr Tedros added that the political declaration approved on Wednesday called for further strengthening of the global health emergency architecture to better protect the world from a repeat of COVID-19,” the press release added.

The press release stated the political declaration recognized the need for Member States to “conclude negotiations on a WHO convention, agreement or other international instrument on pandemic prevention, preparedness and response, otherwise known as the Pandemic Accord, and continue their work to make targeted amendments to the International Health Regulations (2005) by May 2024.

The World Economic Forum writes:

Negotiations on new rules for dealing with pandemics are underway at the World Health Organization (WHO), with a target date of May 2024 for a legally binding agreement to be adopted by the U.N. health agency’s 194 member countries.

A new pact is a priority for WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus who called it a “generational commitment that we will not go back to the old cycle of panic and neglect” at the U.N. agency’s annual assembly. It seeks to shore up the world’s defences against new pathogens following the COVID-19 pandemic that has killed nearly 7 million people.

“The pandemic treaty seeks to shore up the world’s defenses against new pathogens following the COVID-19 pandemic,” the World Economic Forum noted.

“The pact would include provisions for sharing data, funding research and development, and responding to outbreaks. It would also include provisions for strengthening surveillance and early warning systems and for building up stockpiles of medical supplies,” it continued.
