Antonio Guterres Lies As He Bans Press Covering Up UN Rapes and Bribes He Takes

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Periscope
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, July 18 – Antonio Guterres has spent public money to promote himself, and to rough up and ban from the UN the Press that asks UN corruption and sexual abuse.

On July 18 from the UN Headquarters he has banned Inner City Press from for 746 days, Guterres read out a speech he had twice tried to promote in background briefings to the state media and retirees he lets in.

The speech was full of lies and hypocrisy:

Guterres said, "At the UN, we work to reduce inequality, every day, everywhere."   

But Guterres lives alone in a $15 million mansion on Sutton Place. And after the UN made people in Haiti even poorer, by killing 10,000 of them by negligently bringing in cholera, Guterres paid not a cent, and lied about it, at a lavish dinner on Long Island.

Guterres cited the "movement that has spread from the United States around the world in the aftermath of George Floyd’s killing is one more sign that people have had enough."  

But Guterres told UN staff not to join peaceful marches about the killing of George Floyd; his own staff call him racist, until they are threatened with retaliation.

Guterers said, "The legacy of colonialism still reverberates."  

But Guterres supports for example French colonialism, in Cameroon and elsewhere.

Guterres said, "women are worse off than men, simply because they are women."  

But Guterres actively covers up UN Peacekeepers' rapes of girls in DRC and CAR; mostly recently, he is covering up the UNsexploitation of at least three UNTSO international staff members in Tel Aviv, airbrushing the procurer entirely out. 

Guterres said, "tax avoidance and tax evasion remain widespread."  

But Guterres pays no taxes, as he lives in his mansion. Until COVID prevented it, he routinely spent public money on wasteful weekend trips to Lisbon, refusing to answer how much he spent and banning the Press that asks.

Guterres said, "We must break the vicious cycle of corruption, which is both a cause and effect of inequality."   

But Guterres refused to even audit to whom convicted UN briber Patrick Ho's CEFC China Energy gave money in the UN - not surprising, since Guterres omitted from his public financial disclosure money he took from Gulbenkian Foundation, which tried to sell its oil company Partex to China Energy Fund Committee's Ye Jianming. 

Guterres bloviated, "The greatest guarantee of accountability is a vibrant civil society, including a free, independent media."  

But Guterres had Inner City Press, which reported in depth on the UN bribery scandals and asked him about it, roughed up as it covered the UN Budget Committee meeting on July 3, 2018 and banned every since, with no answers to its written questions to UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric and USG Melissa Fleming. These people are hypocrites.

 These lies and more were told by Guterres as the "Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture," which his UN mis-spelled "Nelson Mandel." Photo here, Persicope here. This is Guterres' UN.
