On Haiti, Ban Claimed $100+ Million But It's Only $1 Million from S Korea, Blood Money

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, January 9 – The UN brought cholera to Haiti in 2010 and killed over 10,000 people and counting. Ban Ki-moon, a mere month before he left being UN Secretary General on December 31, issued an eleventh hour apology and claimed to be raising over $100 million.

   On January 9, Inner City Press Ban's holdover spokesman Stephane Dujarric how much as, in fact, been raised. Dujarric said $1 million from Ban's native South Korea - call it blood money -- and a few hundred thousand from France. That's it. Shameful.

  Meanwhile on a report that the UN is investigating the Indian peacekeepers deployed in Haiti for not having cholera vaccination, spokesman Dujarric told Inner City Press that he is looking into the report. Looking into whether the UN is in fact investigating? This is a new low in obfuscation.

   Many see Ban's late apology as meant to take one of the negative issues off his table as he runs for president of South Korea. Other issues include nepotism - promoting his own son in law Siddharth Chatterjee to the top UN job in Kenya - and lack of any accountability for rapes by peacekeepers under his watch.

There is also dropping Saudi Arabia from the Children and Armed Conflict annex for killing children in Yemen. The list goes on. Watch this site.
