As UNSC President Germany Refuses Press Q on Venezuela As On Censor SG Sex Abuse

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

UN GATE, July 29 – In the United Nations from which SG Antonio Guterres has banned Inner City Press 757 days for asking about his complicity in the killing of civilians in Cameroon and their mass imprisonment by China in Xinjiang, on July 29 German Ambassador Christoph Heusgen held an event about Venezuela, to end his July presidency of the UN Security Council.

   Inner City Press at first politely RSVP-ed for the (online) event; then, getting no response, it asked more publicly. Eventually the Zoom password arrived, and Inner City Press signed in.

Heusgen told attendees to "raise their hand," or indicate in the Chat they had a question. Inner City Press did both, even indicating the topic - prisons - so there could be no excuse to continue censorship.

 But censorship continued. Huesgen called on a person in the chat who asked after Inner City Press - and didn't respond when called on - but refused to call on Inner City Press, even after it turned on its camera and physically / visually raised its hand.

  Those listed, and complicit in selective banning of questions:

H.E. Ambassador Christoph Heusgen, permanent representative of Germany to  the UN H.E. Ambassador José Singer Weisinger, permanent representative of the Dominican Republic to the UN; Louis Charbonneau, UN director, Human Rights Watch; Dr. Kathleen Page, researcher, Johns Hopkins University Selene Soto, senior counselor, Women’s Link Worldwide

This is pure censorship, and collusion with Antonio Guterres who had Inner City Press roughed up and banned to try to cover up his financial links to UN briber CEFC China Energy, and unexplained links with sex trafficking including Ghislaine Maxwell. This, and the German Mission, are shameful - or shameless. We'll have more on this.

  Back on July 1 Heusgen took questions only from pre-screened in-house correspondents, one of whose media has no story by her since 2017, another with no stories at all. ignoring or even pretending not to see a question about Cameroon by Inner City Press. Twitter here, Periscope here.

 In late June Inner City Press wrote twice to the German Mission to the UN, about UN censorship and then about UN sexploitation. The German Mission has yet to answer.

 On July 1 Heusgen did not say a word about the slaughter in Cameroon, nor about the Tel Aviv UN sexploitation exposed by Inner City Press.

  The Program belatedly went up - with countries on which Heusgen ignored and censored questions: West Africa, for example. There will be COVID (which the UN helped spread in South Sudan) on July 2, "human rights" and UN Peacekeeping - UNTSO? - on July 7. Libya on July 8, West Africa including Nigeria / Cameroon on July 9. Colombia and Syria on July 14; Yemen (another UN failure) on July 16. Conflict related sexual violence, covered up by Guterres and Stephane Dujarric, on July 17. Cyprus on the 20th, Middle East on the 21st, climate on the 24. Then what? They never sent the Program. We'll have more on this.

When Guterres' spokes- / hatchetman Stephane Dujarric holds his noon briefings this month while refusing all questions from Inner City Press despite an on camera promise. And Germany? We'll report.
