As UN Guterres Comments on El Salvador Refuses Answers On Support of Honduras JOH

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon, Thread Video
Honduras - The Source - The Root - etc

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 3 – The hypocrisy of the UN of Antonio Guterres and the corruption of a president he partners with, Juan Orlando Herandez, was reported on by Inner City Press on October 18, 2019 with the SDNY guilty verdicts against presidential brother Tony Hernandez.

  Now in May 2021, with Inner City Press still banned for its questions from the UN by Guterres, he has made it even more corrupt during the trial of Geovanny Fuentes-Ramirez, who also paid bribes to JOH (and others).

  Yet on May 3 he robo-commented on El Salvador: "on El Salvador, we are also following that situation very closely.   The Secretary-General takes note of the concerns expressed regarding the procedures used in the dismissal of the members of the constitutional chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice and its impact on the system of checks and balances in El Salvador.   The Secretary-General calls for respect of constitutional provisions, the rule of law and the division of powers, with a view to preserving the democratic progress achieved by the Salvadoran people since the signing of the peace agreement."

  Making his silent support of narcos in Honduras all the more telling. Dump Guterres. 
  Guterres' Italian representative in Honduras, Alice H. Shackelford, on the very day that Devis Leonel Rivera Maradiaga was testifying about bribing JOH and working with the Honduran military to move cocaine, tweeted a photo of herself with a Honduras military figure, here.

  Mrs. Sheckelford has no excuse: the UN has bragged that she has a law degree from the University of Padova.

It is shocking, but entirely typical of how low Guterres has brought the UN while now seeking to steal a second five-year term. See here.

 So on March 12, Inner City Press asked Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming: "On Honduras, given the evidence that President JOH and high government and military officials are bribed by and involved with narco-traffickers that is coming out in SDNY court trial of Geovanny Fuentes, please immediately explain why SG Guterres' representative in Honduras Mrs. Shackelford on March 11 took and tweeted a selfie with a Honduran military official." Two days later, no answer at all - totally corrupt.

 But Shackelford and other UN / UNICEF official, even during the narco-trial took phones with JOH himself. In the UNICEF one, tweeted by Jean Gough, tagged is Mark Connolly, who follows Inner City Press. So since corrupt Guterres' censoring spokespeople won't answer, how does HE explain this collusion with narco-traffic and murder?

We'll have more on this.

  Back on February 8, 2018, Antonio Guterres had just typically sent a four person panel to Tegucigalpa to back up JOH: Marcie Mersky, Ana Catalina Soberanis, Mirna Cuenta  and Javier Cabreja.

  Inner City Press then still allowed into the UN noon briefing asked his spokesman: "on Honduras, what is the UN's role in Honduras?  It's reported that Mr. [Salvador] Nasralla is meeting with a team that was sent there.  Is the Government… who is it that's invited this mediation team of the UN, and what is its mandate? 

Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq:  I don't have any particular details to share. Video here from 26:16.

  On the evening of October 19, Guterres while still having no comment as Inner City Press has requested for week on the trial or now verdict, after he has repeatedly tried to help cover up for JOH, was rattling around in the publicly funded $15 million he lives alone his, this evening with an unidentified young man. Outside were two big cars, including a Mercedes. Inner City Press, on bicycle, waited to ask the questions that Guterres' spokesman who is paid to answer questions refuses to answer.

 When Guterres came out, Inner City Press audibly asked for comment on the Honduras verdict, and why none was forthcoming on that, or Cameroon, or UN corruption. Guterres drove away in two limousines. Video here.

  UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres is so corrupt he does not answer any critics; in fact, he had Inner City Press physically roughed up by his Security and banned from entering the UN for 982 days and counting. During that time Guterres supposed JOH's second term, and as the evidence of drug trafficking grew, spoke with JOH only about... climate change. This is corruption.
