Is the UK the first country to face a UN inquiry into disability rights violations?

So quite without the UK public suspecting a thing and without the UK media feeling the need to let anyone know, the UK has become the first country to so undermine the rights of sick and disabled people, that the UN have chosen to look into whether they have violated the convention on the rights of people with disabilities. A convention that the UK - and most of the rest of the world, including Russia - have signed up to and ratified. The UK is accused of "retrogression" - taking sickness and disability provision backwards.
