In Cameroon Biya Threatens To Kill For Election But UN DiCarlo Skips It For Nigeria

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UN GATE, Jan 18 – 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 had then been missing from New York for three weeks, and now again, 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.

  Nor did Guterres' UNSG Rosemary DiCarlo answer, when she online bragging was replied to. Instead, this: "Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (DPPA) Rosemary A. DiCarlo today concluded her first official visit to West Africa with a stop in Burkina Faso. The five-day visit also took the Under-Secretary-General to Senegal, Guinea Bissau, Niger and Nigeria.    Under-Secretary-General DiCarlo, accompanied by Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS) Mohamed Ibn Chambas...In Nigeria, Ms. Di Carlo had meetings with the Minister of State in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the UNCT and the diplomatic corps, focusing on Nigeria’s response to security, humanitarian and development challenges within the country and in the Lake Chad Basin and the support the UN provides...  Noting that several countries in the region will undertake election processes, the Under-Secretary-General stressed the need for all stakeholders to engage in peaceful, credible and transparent electoral processes and to refrain from any acts of violence. She emphasized that successful electoral processes are an integral part of democratic consolidation and the rule of law, which are in turn critical to sustaining peace and development in the region." And nothing on Cameroon. Guterres' corruption spreads, and DiCarlo is complicit.

  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?

   Guterres and his cronies 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.
