UN Diplomats Mock Coronavirus On Instagram Protected By Spain Gallach and UN Guterres

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, March 23 –   In the midst of the Coronavirus crisis, diplomats at the United Nations in New York partied on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, celebrating the cancelation of the meetings of the Commission on the Status of Women.

    They put the hashtag #CoronaFree on their internal Instagram photograph, leaked by a disgusted diplomat to Inner City Press banned from the UN 630 days by corrupt Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

  Inner City Press tweeted the photograph, here, cropped to avoid exposing the source, and tagged Spain's minister Cristina Gallach. One of those partying in the photo - all of them are named - is  José María Bastida Peydro of Spain's Mission to the UN, which Inner City Press also tagged.

So what will they do?

How corrupt is the UN under Guterres, whose spokesman Stephane Dujarric now doing "briefing" for his friends from his penthouse apartment on the Upper East Side, has blocked Inner City Press on WhatsApp on which he says he is taking questions? And Melissa Fleming, who has refused to explain the 630 day ban or provide any appeals process? These people are corrupt. Watch this site.
