When UN Staff Send Child Porn Through UN System, ICP Asks, Does UN Tell Police?

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, October 16 -- When the UN find a staff member using the UN's email system to trafficking in sexual images of minors, a crime, what does it do? On October 16, Inner City Press asked UN Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq about this paragraph from a UN report it had dug up:

ď49. A staff member sent, through the Organizationís e-mail system, pornographic material, including pornographic material involving a minor, and failed to report that another staff member had sent the staff member inappropriate material though the Organizationís e-mail system. Disposition: dismissal.Ē

  Inner City Press asked, was that all that happened, dismissal? Such that the person could, for example, work in a day care center? Haq said in instances the UN waives immunity.

  Inner City Press asked, how would law enforcement know that the person had used the UN's email system for child porn? Haq said there have been cases in which the UN told local authorities. Inner City Press asked, did it do so in this case? Apparently, the UN will not answer this. For now. Here are other paragraphs:

46. A staff member stored pornographic material, including pornography involving a minor, on the staff memberís United Nations computer, distributed other pornographic material through the Organizationís e-mail system and failed to report that another staff member had sent the staff member inappropriate material through the Organizationís e-mail system. Disposition: dismissal.

47. A staff member sent, through the Organizationís e-mail system, and stored on the staff memberís United Nations computer, pornographic material involving a minor and, on other occasions, distributed, through the Organizationís e -mail system, other pornographic material. Disposition: dismissal.

 48. A staff member sent, through the Organizationís e-mail system, pornographic material involving a minor and, on three other occasions, distributed other pornographic material through the Organizationís e-mail system and stored pornographic material on the staff memberís United Nations computer. Disposition: dismissal.

 The report is entitled "Practice of the Secretary-General in disciplinary matters and cases of criminal behaviour, 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015."

We'll have more on this. Watch this site.
