UN Staffer Elkorany Raped 13 in Iraq & US But Guterres Kept Paying Him, Probation Urges 15 Years

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

SDNY Courthouse, Sept 8 – UN former staff member Karim Elkorany was arrested then freed on $500,000 bond on September 2, 2020 in connection with drugging and raping women in Iraq while working for the UN in 2016, then allegedly lying to the FBI about it in 2017.

  A superseding indictment belatedly unsealed on October 29, 2020 said Elkorany raped a UN contractor, in the US and Dohuk, Iraq. And still the UN did nothing.

On May 24, 2022 Elkorany pleaded guilty: "KARIM ELKORANY, a former communications specialist with the United Nations (“UN”) in Iraq, pled guilty before United States District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald to sexually assaulting an internationally protected person and making false statements to cover up another sexual assault.  In connection with the plea, ELKORANY also admitted that he drugged and/or sexually assaulted seventeen additional victims."

He raped while employed by the UN - AND THE UN DID NOTHING. In fact, the UN helped him flee and do it again.

On September 3, Elkorany sought a long delay in sentencing - the day after another UN-linked fraudster, Cary Yan, has his indictment unsealed. See a pattern here? Elkorany's letter: "Our firm represents defendant Karim Elkorany in the above-captioned action. We write to request an adjournment of Mr. Elkorany’s sentencing, which is currently scheduled for September 29, 2022."

On September 6 in a partially redacted letter the US opposed, quoting Victim-2 that she mentally prepares for all court dates in this case and is hopeful that the sentencing will give her some relief." To seal / redact about Victim-1, the prosecutors cite US v. Amodeo on "venerable common law exception to the presumption of access to judicial documents."

On September 8, Elkorany's lawyer reiterated the request to delay sentencing - and included in the letter the the Probation Department in its pre-sentencing report is recommending a sentence of 15 years. Watch this site.

The case is US v. Elkorany, 20-cr-437 (Buchwald).
