In Sudan Hamdok Resigns Now Troika Speaks As Guterres Bans Press From Norway's UNSC

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

UN GATE, Jan 4 – How corrupt has the UN system become under Antonio Guterres? Well, below is a sample retaliation complaint about his UN in Sudan, which has been provided to Inner City Press, which Guterres has had banned since 3 July 2018 without providing answers.

 Now to start 2022, Sudan's Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok has resigned. On January 4, as UNSC President Norway cravenly followed Guterres and banned Inner City Press from Ambassador Mona Juul's press conference, this from the Troika: "The Troika (Norway, the United Kingdom, and the United States) and the European Union underscore their continued support for the democratic aspirations of the Sudanese people.  Abdallah Hamdok played a major role in leading Sudan’s democratic and economic reforms.  His resignation as Sudanese Prime Minister, two months after the military’s unconstitutional seizure of power, reinforces the urgent need for all Sudanese leaders to recommit to the country’s democratic transition and deliver on the Sudanese people’s demands for freedom, peace, and justice.  No single Sudanese actor can accomplish this task on their own." No, but one individual can assure failure, or at least censorship: Antonio Guterres.

It seems, some say, it is Guterres who should resign, if he can't abide the First Amendment principles even while spending the public's money in a mansion in New York City. Watch this site.

  Inner City Press asked Guterres and spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming, and Amina J. Mohammed, about Sudan in writing on the morning of October 25, along with a new UN child rape by a "peacekeeper" from Morocco. No answers - totally corrupt.

 At the UN's lame noon briefing, Guterres' SRSG Volker Perthes said he could not speak to the impact in Darfur.

But now, after so much UN failure in Darfur (which Inner City Press visited with the Security Council, before Guterres had Inner City Press banned for its reporting), now on Christmas 2021, this: "The Secretary-General condemns the looting and reported violence occurring around the former United Nations logistics base in El Fasher since 24 December 2021 in a part of the former base for which custody was handed over to local Sudanese authorities on 21 December 2021. The safety of personnel from the former United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission in Darfur, UNAMID, that remain at the base is of paramount concern at present. Security of this section of the base that has been overrun and looted was to be maintained by Sudanese authorities once it was handed over.   This latest incident of looting and destruction is a tragedy for Sudanese communities that stood to benefit from substantial amounts of equipment and supplies gifted by the United Nations assets for civilian use. We remain hopeful that Sudanese authorities can put an end to the looting in El Fasher, and that remaining infrastructure, equipment and assets can be administered for civilian use as intended.  Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General     New York, 25 December 2021." Lies, all of it. Where is Guterres and why no answers on his links to Ghislaine Maxwell and cover up of UN rapes?

From the UN in Sudan, Inner City Press published this: "Please provide the name and position of the person(s) who has committed the alleged act(s) of  retaliation:   Mr. Mateen Shaheen; Deputy Representative UNFPA CO, Sudan; email:  Mr. Massimo Diana; Representative UNFPA CO, Sudan; email:    II. Protected Activity:   Did you report misconduct? To whom and when (date) did you make your report of misconduct?  Yes, to the Executive Director on May 24th. 2021  

What misconduct did you report? 

3. Discrimination and nepotism; specifically, un-unified methods of recruitment, including 12 new  positions were not opened internally following procedure’ referring to ‘fast track recruitments’ in order to  not extend contracts of national staff in the Sudan CO in favour of bringing in staff who have served with  senior management in former duty stations. As evidence, in the last six months, six new positions have  been recruited and filled by staff from Syria, the former duty station of the Representative. Further,  positions have also been filled through personal relations such as bringing on board the wife of the  1   Representative’s friends in Khartoum into the Youth Program without transparency or clarity on roles  and responsibility. 

V. History:   Who else besides the Ethics Office have you contacted for assistance?   No other parties and/or bodies have been contacted for assistance."
