On Colombia As Pompeo Calls Duque UN Guterres Criticizes Protesters While Covering Up UN Sex Abuse

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR Letter PFT Q&A

UN GATE, Nov 27 – Colombia was presented as one of the only successes in the three desultory years Antonio Guterres has helmed the UN, censoring Inner City Press to conceal his links to UN bribery. Now on November 27 from US State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus, this: "Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo spoke today with Colombian President Ivan Duque.  Secretary Pompeo welcomed the national conversation that President Duque has convened in Colombia in response to recent demonstrations, recognizing it as an opportunity for the Colombian people to work together to advance peace, security, and prosperity.  Secretary Pompeo reaffirmed the United States’ steadfast support for the government of Colombia in its efforts to facilitate peaceful democratic expression."

 As to the ever more corrupt UN, on November 23 after the UN cursorily acknowledged its sexual exploitation of Colombia but refused Inner City Press' questions about Colombia, this from Guterres as he sped away in pollution vans: "The Secretary-General follows developments in Colombia closely. He acknowledges the largely peaceful spirit that characterized the 21 November marches and welcomes the expressed willingness of the Government to engage in dialogue, as demonstrated by the announcement of the President to embark on a national conversation.     At the same time, the Secretary-General is concerned by incidents of violence and vandalism, including an attack late yesterday that claimed the lives of three police officers in Cauca Department and injured others.     The Secretary-General calls on all actors to refrain from violence, exercise maximum restraint and engage in peaceful dialogue.      Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General  New York, 23 November 2019." Total B.S..

After its  reporting on the United Nations as a resident correspondent for a decade, exposing war crimes and UN scandals from Sri Lanka to Yemen to Cameroon, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres had Inner City Press roughly ousted and banned from the UN since 3 July 2018.

  On 24 August 2019 Inner City Press applied to  Guterres and his new Communications and media accreditation chief Melissa Fleming to be admitted like hundreds of others to cover the upcoming UN General Assembly. After receiving from Guterres' Security chief Gilles Michaud an ill-informed response passing the buck to the Department now run by Fleming, 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 <>
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.
