UN Guterres Pontificates To G20 After His Fundraiser Had 3 Officials Without Financial Disclosure

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

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, March 25 – The United Nations held a four speakers, one M.C. event to raise funds for itself off of Coronavirus on March 25. Then on March 26 the most corrupt of the speakers, Antonio Guterres, pontificated on the G-20 conference call, below.

On the UN's March 25 fundraiser, three of  the participants had refused to make public even the UN's bare-bones financial disclosures: Mark Lowcock, Henrietta Fore of UNICEF and Melissa Fleming.

The head man, Guterres, has lied on his form, omitting his financial links to convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy. And in his March 26 remarks, there was no mention of his paymasters: "Thank you, Your Majesty, for convening this meeting.      We are at war with a virus – and not winning it... We need greater resources for the International Monetary Fund and other International Financial Institutions, a meaningful emission of Special Drawing Rights, coordinated swaps between central banks and steps to alleviate debt, such as a waiver of interest payments." The IMF answers Inner City Press' questions, as to do others - but not Guterres' UN, all to protect or try to prevent coverage of the Dear Leader's corrupt ties.

  Inner City Press at noon on March 25 asked in writing Guterres, Fleming, Stephane Dujarric and others, "March 25-1: On the Coronavirus Covid-19 and the March 25 fundraiser, why is there no disclosure of USG Melissa Fleming among the most recent public financial disclosures? Why none for Mark Lowcock? None for Henriette Fore? How can the UN raise money on this opaque basis?" A day later, nothing. Absolute arrogance and opacity.

    Inner City Press, which for asking these questions has been banned from the UN for 632 days by Guterres and M.C. Melissa Fleming (who has not filed her financial disclosure), streamed their event along with analysis, here on Twitter, here on Periscope.  It also submitted questions through the UN's Periscope feed.

   But the questions Fleming picked, in advance and seeming providing them to Guterres in advance, were from China state media Xinhua, Radio France, etc. To this has the UN sunk under Guterres. We'll have more on this.
