In Cameroon Biya Threatens To Kill More Civilians Emboldened By UN Guterres A Censor

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UN GATE, Jan 1 – Cameroon's 38 year ruler Paul Biya, propped up by France and now for three years by corrupt UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres who cut a deal with Biya for his support as chair of the UN Budget Committee, on New Years Eve made threats to kill more people.

  And from Guterres, who has been missing from New York for three weeks, similar to Biya's long convalescences in Geneva? Nothing. Absolute silent. And no answers by his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming, who continue Guterres' ghoulish ban on Inner City Press even entering the UN to ask questions.

  This was from Biya's speech, robo tweeted out by others just like Guterres' saccarine feed, on Biya's Twitter account from which Biya's like any dictator bans Inner City Press and others. Guterres' spokesman Stephane Dujarric also blocks Inner City Press, despite having promised on camera to answer its questions. Both will fall in 2020. But for the UN to be run by a corrupt censor? This is a new low. It is UNacceptable.

On September 29 Inner City Press was sent another tweet about Biya's platform for national dialogue, an account featuring a photos of the grip and grin between Guterres and Biya's foreign minister. This is the result of Guterres' sold out diplomacy - a Potemkin Village of fake dialogue accompanied by violence and censorship. Guterres is no better than Biya. At least Biya is officially senile. What is Guterres' excuse?

  Now while Guterres this week refused questions on Cameroon from banned Inner City Press submitted in writing every day -- December 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 -- in the middle of this, Biya's army burned down villages including Mamu. There is video footage of this all over the Internet. And from the UN of Guterres, dead silence. And Inner City Press which asks him about Cameroon is banned, now 529 days. Also still no answer or path to re-entry from from Melissa Fleming as she entered a decadent Wall Street event while the UN cut rations to refugees in Libya, on which she bans the Press that asks. Wall Street video here (Fleming halfway through), and separately Dujarric here. UNacceptable.

 On November 28 Guterres was silent again about Cameroon, the continued lock up of a sick journalist (Guterres in his sick away enjoys and continues his retaliation against investigative journalism which asks how he spends public money, today in Lisbon) - while "Yaoundé Special Criminal Court decision to reject a request for Amadou Vamoulké's provisional release although two medical reports say this journalist needs treatment abroad and his continuing detention violates Cameroonian law.

  On November 5 before 8 am Inner City Press in writing asked Guterres, Stephane Dujarric, Melissa Fleming and of course Amina J. Mohammed, "November 5-2: On Cameroon and press freedom, what are the belated comments and actions of SG Guterres on that the South West Chapter Cameroon Journalists Trade Union have showed up in court for their detained colleague, Samuel Wazizi.

  Five days later, nothing at all. Nor on Cameroon peacekeepers' sexual abuse. Guterres and the other three are entirely corrupt. And see their partners in censorship, for example here.

Inner City Press live tweeted the shameful May UNSC session and uploaded Guterres' envoy Francois Fall's failing statement here.
