In Corrupt UN of Guterres UNDP Ombudsman Hands Panel Over to Rome Based ADR Center

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

UN GATE, Feb 15 – Alongside the rotting out of the entire UN system under SG Antonio Guterres, corruption in the UN Development Program has also been expanding. 

  The Ombudsman for UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNOPS and UN-Women, Giuseppe De Palo, completed his five years term August 2020.  The organization regulation didn’t allow the extension of the Ombudsman, but the UNDP management extended Mr. De Palo’s contract.  

Giuseppe De Palo was a co-founder and chairman of the board of ADR Center in Rome, Italy.  Before Covid-19 he was one of the many frequent travelers, like Guterres to Lisbon, and his travel expenses are more than $150,000 -- but his report can't be run by internal whistleblowers, because UNDP is locking the report. 

Whistleblower say that he is still indirectly involved in ADR Center.  “Over the last ten years, he has been the team leader for several multi-million euro consulting projects to foster ADR on four different continents. Currently, he chairs the board of ADR Center, one of Europe’s largest private ADR firms."

 Brazenly, he recruited more than ten staff from ADR to The UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNOPS and UN-Women Ombudsman International Advisory Board. Compare the names on the following two sites (UNDP Ombudsman, here)  and  ADR Center, here.

 For example:  Laila Ollapally, Camilo Azcarate, and Elena Koltsaki (photos here).

   Giuseppe De Palo is using the funds and Programs resources for his personal use.  There is no use of reporting this to OAI because he is highly supported by UNDP senior management. And so it goes in the UN corrupted by Guterres, who today banned Inner City Press for the 958th day while lusting after an UNmerited second term. #DumpGuterres.
