On Zimbabwe Jailed Journalist Inner City Press Asked UN Guterres No Reply But Al Jazeera Scam

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

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, July 25 – On Zimbabwe, on July 23 Inner City Press formally submitted a question to United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric, as well as UNSG Antonio Guterres and his politburo:

"On Zimbabwe, what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on that Hopewell Chin'ono, an award-winning Zimbabwean journalist and government critic, has been charged with incitement to violence in a magistrates' court in the capital, Harare. He did not enter a plea.  Prosecutor Whisper Mabhaudhi accused Mr Chin'ono of inciting Zimbabweans to join a planned anti-government protest during the coronavirus outbreak, which showed "no regard for human life." Mr Chin'ono's lawyers complained about the circumstances of his arrest on Monday and his stay in custody.  A video clip recorded at the journalist's house showed the remains of the glass door that police smashed in order to gain entry."

    Dujarric refused to answer, and no one let into the UN's Zoom / WebEx noon briefing on July 23 and July 24, including Al Jazeera English's James Bays and SABC laughing about Mkapa, asked about Zimbabwe. Video here.

But on July 25 when Qatar royal family owned and controlled Al Jazeera reporting on Zimbabwe, it claimed the UN had strongly criticized Zimbabwe for locking up a journalist. This is intentional misinformation of the public, from a media which colluded with the UN to get the Press roughed up and banned from the UN. We'll have more on this.
