In Mali UN Peacekeeper Killed by IED Now SC Statement By Kenya Refusing Pandora Papers Qs

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NY Post

UN GATE, Oct 4  – The UN Security Council under China's presidency did not hold a single publicly-viewable briefing or issuance of Press Elements, on Mali or any other site of a UN Peacekeeping mission.

  Then as demonstrators calling for President Keita to resign were teargassed and at least two killed, there was not a word from the Security Council or even for usually robo-tweeting UNSG Antonio Guterres, Big Tony G. Maybe Guterres' silence is because he is cheering on the arrest of journalists, including  Liberté TV journalist Hawa Kamissoko, after he and Stephane Dujarric has Inner City Press roughed up and banned since, video here. Guterres' UN is corrupt.

On October 2, 2021 the UN mission said, and Inner City Press nearly immediately re-published, "A MINUSMA peacekeeper died today after his convoy hit an improvised explosive device in Tessalit, Kidal region, early this afternoon, with four others seriously injured.     The Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of (MINUSMA), Mr. El-Ghassim WANE, strongly condemned these attacks: "this incident is a sad reminder of the permanent danger that hangs over our peacekeepers and of the sacrifices made for peace in Mali", he stressed.     Mr. WANE paid tribute to the soldier who died in the performance of his mission. He also wished a speedy and full recovery to the injured, who have been evacuated and are receiving the necessary care. He offered his deepest condolences to the Government of the deceased, to his family and comrades-in-arms.     Mr. WANE reaffirmed that today's cowardly attack only strengthened MINUSMA determination to support Mali and its people in their quest for peace and stability."

 At the UN in New York, corrupt Guterres rather than listen to critics has them roughed up and banned. And where is the court for the UN, when it kills 10,000 in Haiti with cholera, or, right in New York City, roughs up and bans the Press, with no hearing at all?

Now on October 4, 2021, a UNSC statement by SC President for October Kenya, which has refused Inner City Press' September request for access, and October 4 questions about the overseas accounts of President Kenyatta and family exposed in the Pandora Papers: "The members of the Security Council condemned in the strongest terms the attack perpetrated on 2 October 2021 against a MINUSMA convoy near Tessalit, Kidal region, which resulted in one peacekeeper from Egypt killed and four others injured.      The members of the Security Council expressed their deepest condolences and sympathy to the family of the victim, as well as to Egypt and to MINUSMA. They wished a speedy and full recovery to the peacekeepers who were injured. They paid tribute to the peacekeepers who risk their lives.      The members of the Security Council called on the transitional Government of Mali to swiftly investigate this attack and bring the perpetrators to justice. They underlined that attacks targeting peacekeepers may constitute war crimes under international law. They stressed that involvement in planning, directing, sponsoring or conducting attacks against MINUSMA peacekeepers constitutes a basis for sanctions designations pursuant to United Nations Security Council resolutions.      The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security." Talk is cheap. Vlog here - and here.

  This as Inner City Press, which reports on Mali and South Sudan for example is excluded by the UN Secretariat from getting promised answers - for example to this question it posed: "what is the UN's response to the massacre" - UN failure.
