BRIDGETOWN (AFP) - UN rights chief Navi Pillay on Thursday called for an "immediate investigation" into the circumstances surrounding the February death of an unarmed black US teen, shot by a neighborhood watchman.

Pillay made the comments about the controversial Trayvon Martin case at a press conference in Barbados, as she wrapped up a three-day visit to the Caribbean island nation.

"As High Commissioner for Human Rights, I call for an immediate investigation," Pillay told reporters.

"Justice must be done for the victim. It's not just this individual case. It calls into question the delivery of justice in all situations like this."

Justice must be done for the victim.

I contend that justice was done for the victim.

I contend that the victim is Zimmerman. His whole life is upside down because of a kangaroo press and the rabid left. Poor guy.
