As UN Supported Ghislaine Maxwell Norway Linked IPI Used Epstein For Gates Money

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

UN GATE / SDNY -- While Ghislaine Maxwell, now incarcerated for sex trafficking, was filming videos into the United Nations, now deceased Jeffrey Epstein she procured for was working the angles just across First Avenue at a think tank connected to an incoming UN Security Council member that refuses to answer questions.

   Inner City Press while in the UN asked questions about Maxwell and her UN-supported Terramar Project, here. Then, after UNSG Antonio Guterres whose UN Partnerships boss Amir Dossal was on Maxwell's Terramar board, had Inner City Press roughed up and banned, now 825 bans, Inner City Press on July 15, 2019, published this.

  It linked Epstein, then alive in the MCC jail, to UN-affiliate International Peace Institute, who murky moves in Bahrain using UN-paid staff it had previously exposed.

   Now with Epstein dead and Maxwell facing trial, the Norwegian business newspaper DN has dug in this same waters (Epstein - IPI), bringing in Bill Gates, to boot. They report:

"Gates had been introduced to IPI by Jeffrey Epstein at a meeting in Strasbourg, France...That day Epstein received an email IPI's then finance director David Witt had sent to a grant administrator at the Gates Foundation. It was forwarded to him by Rød-Larsen. Epstein reacted strongly. Epstein was unhappy of the fact that he had not seen the phrasing earlier, and gave Rød-Larsen clear instructions on how to communicate with the Gates Foundation. He wrote «do not send anything else, anything! without letting me see it before it goes. not after. please». Epstein was concerned that the email from the finance director might create problems due to lack of bookkeeping. Epstein's concerns were forwarded by Rød-Larsen to Witt, who confirmed the exchange to DN.... Rød-Larsen has repeatedly stated that he does not speak to DN.... Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway met Epstein several times between 2011 and 2013."

  Norway is joining the UN Security Council in 2021 - they have already started attending and observing closed consultation.

But its ambassador Mona Juul - the wife of Terje
Rød-Larsen - has like Guterres and his spokesman Stephane Dujarric refused to answer any questions from Inner City Press, even while Juul head UN ECOSOC, to which Maxwell's Terranova pitched.

Now UN General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir, whose spokesman Brenden Varma blocks Inner City Press on Twitter for asking, has as Chef de Cabinet "Ms. Mary Skaare, Deputy Permanent Representative of Norway to the UN." She also does not answer, and so colludes in the censorship.

Today's UN is corrupt and complicit with child sex trafficking, and arrogant in its refusal to answer questions or even refrain from roughing up and banning Press which asks. Accountability for all this is necessary, and Inner City Press (and apparently DN) will no rest.


 – While the United Nations speaks about press freedom and the UN General Assembly week under new President Zolkan Bozkir of Turkey, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has banned Inner City Press amid its questions about his finances and failures on Cameroon and in combatting or even just disclosing UN sexual abuse. 

 On September 17, Guterres' spokesman Staphane Dujarric was asked out it. Video here. From the transcript:

 Q: you were talking about press freedoms, a different part of the press. What's the latest with Inner City Press? They've apparently asked to be credentialed, and that's been ignored. They've played an active part in uncovering UN corruption over the years. Where does... where do they stand regarding UN credentialing?      

UN Spokesman Dujarric:  Mr. Lee's status remains unchanged. Okay...       

 Question:  And does that mean that that's going to stay unchanged, meaning he's banned for the next... for this General Assembly?      

Spokesman Dujarric:  Well, I mean, there's no... we're not issuing any new credentials for this General Assembly, because there's really nothing... there are no physical... barely any physical events here. So, there's no... no temporary credentials are being given, anyway.     All right. Thank you very much. I will leave you in the capable hands of Mr. [Brenden] Varma....   

Brenden Varma, for PGA Bozkir, has refused to answer Inner City Press' questions about his backsliding on the one reform from the UN corruption scandal Inner City Press reported on, often exclusively, about PGAs Ashe and Kutesa; Bozkir has an empty "Ethics" page.

Varma then blocked Inner City Press on Twitter. This is today's UN - we'll have more on this issue. Inner City Press should be given the codes to access and ask questions at briefings immediately, like the state media and retirees Guterres and Melissa Fleming prefer and favor.
