On Cameroon UN Guterres Support of  Biya Echoed By Al Jazeera While Covering Up Murder and Rape With Censorship

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UN GATE, September 11 –After Cameroon imposed life sentences and massive fines on Ayuk Tabe and nine others, for days UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres refused to answer the written questions and request for comment from Inner City Press which Guterres has banned from the UN for 435 days, now issuing Kafka-esque denials by his new Global Censor Melissa Fleming, see below.

  On September 10, after the UN of Guterres has repeatedly lied for Paul Biya and covered up his murders and even his soldiers' child rapes in the DRC, Guterres through his censor / spokesman Stephane Dujarric who has refused Inner City Press' questions about Cameroon for months puts this out: "The Secretary-General welcomes the announcement made today by President Paul Biya on the launch of a national dialogue process in Cameroon. He encourages the Government of Cameroon to ensure that the process is inclusive and addresses the challenges facing the country. He calls on all Cameroonian stakeholders, including the Diaspora, to participate in this effort. The Secretary-General reiterates the readiness of the United Nations to support the dialogue process.     Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General  New York, 10 September 2019."

  It is a total scam, like Tony "Back Door" Guterres, the 435 day censor. Tellingly Al Jazeera, whose UN correspondent James Bays most recently worked to alert Guterres how to avoid a Press stakeout question about Cameroon, merely reprinted Stephance "French Whine" Dujarric's canned statements without any analysis: "welcomed the announcement.  His spokesman, Stephane Dujarric, said in a statement that Guterres "encourages the government of Cameroon to ensure that the process is inclusive" and "calls on all Cameroonian stakeholders, including the diaspora, to participate in this effort".  This is the UN censorship alliance.

   It turns out that the UN, its UN News and also Media Accreditation and Liaison Unit are so far worse under Melissa Fleming than before. On August 30 Inner City Press was without reasoning barred from entering to cover the UN General Assembly week which for example Biya's CRTV is allowed into. Now a September 6 "UN News" story, under Fleming who previously defending a UNHCR staffer calling for "harsher repression" by Biya on Anglophones, has focused on Cameroon - but ONLY on "terrorism," nothing about what Biya is going in the SW and NW to civilians.

 And they are doing this will public money. We'll have more on this - every round of questions and formal demand for reconsideration and entering into UNGA74 is being sent directly to Fleming's UN Secretariat e-mail address, so far without any response. Watch this site.

Past 4 pm on Friday, August 30 the UN issued a denial of accreditation with no reasoning other than that accreditation had previously been revoked:

"From: malu malu at  un dot org
Date: Fri, Aug 30, 2019 at 4:23 PM
Subject: U.N. eAccreditation request for Matthew Lee Ref # M5413398 has been declined
To: Inner City Press:

Greetings Matthew Lee from Inner City Press,  Your media accreditation request, with reference no: M5413398, has been declined for the following reason: Media accreditation was withdrawn on 17 August 2018."

  This is Kafka-esque, and corrupt. We will have more, much more, on this.
