Amid Cameroon Child Death UN Guterres Says Maybe Next Time As Drops Saudi UN For Sale

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

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, June 15 – With the Cameroon government's report on the killing of over 20 civilians including 13 children in Ngarbuh, promised by Paul Biya who then disappeared amid COVID-19 nowhere to be seen, back on April 20 Inner City Press asked Watchlist for Children and Armed Conflict about Cameroon. But when the UN held its own "press conference" on June 15, Inner City Press was not able to ask questions as it did under Ban Ki-moon. Guterres is a corrupt censor.

   But Guterres, who earlier traveled to Yaounde and took a golden statue from Biya, then by that government's own notes advised them on how to discourage press coverage of its abuses, has claimed credit for a ceasefire in Cameroon that most there say does not exist.   Now he says he might add Cameroon - probably unless they come up with cash like Saudi Arabia did. Here it is:

"243. In view of the gravity and number of violations reported and, where possible, verified in Cameroon (recruitment and use, killing and maiming, abduction, attacks on schools and hospitals, and denial of humanitarian access) and in Burkina Faso (attacks on schools, and killing and maiming) during 2019, both countries will be added as situations of concern with immediate effect and will be included in my next report." But under Guterres, the UN is for sale. He has no credibility. And allowed no Press questions, including on Cameroon. Periscope video here.

  The Watchlist press conference, and getting the Cameroon question in as one of four, was appreciated. We note that the meta-moderators from HRW insisted that priority would be given to members of the UN Correspondents Association. But only three of them had questions and UNCA did nothing when Guterres had Inner City Press thrown out of the UN on 3 July 2018 and banned since, amid its questions on Cameroon and other conflicts. And the same UNCA zombies were perfectly happy to have the Press banned from this and other "press" conference. We'll have more on this as well. Watch this site on that as well.
