After Inner City Press Scoop UN Prostitution Video No Contact By Investigators So Request

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - Jerusalem

UN GATE, June 26 – The United Nations claims to have a zero tolerance for sexual exploitation by its staff and peacekeepers, but routinely covers up their abuses including the rape of children, withholding basic information which was provided to the Press under Ban Ki-moon but not now under Antonio Guterres. 

   Inner City Press, which Guterres has banned from the UN for 724 days as it asks about these and his abuses, on June 23 received from outraged UN whistleblowers video of sexual exploitation, they said, in a white UN-marked vehicle, here.  Now Instagram, Facebook.

  Inner City Press has been informed in detail by UNTSO and Tel Aviv sources of the history of prostitution - which the UN calls sexual exploitation and claims it has zero tolerance for - at work here. HaYarkon Street is well known for prostitution, and now hotels are closed by COVID-19. There is also a history of those in the UN vehicle. UN whistleblowers who due to Guterres' retaliation won't speak to the UN Secretariat have spoken to Inner City Press. But the UN's belated investigation is excluding all this information. It is a cover-up. Inner City Press has formally requested the code to ask questions at the June 26 UN noon briefing, including to a UN Peacekeeping official who will speak / lie there. Watch this site.

  The UN has for four days refused to respond in any way, from Guterres through Amina J. Mohammed to Achim Steiner and Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric and dozens of other UN officials and member states, apparently hoping for another UN cover up.

Well, no.

  Inner City Press early on June 25 reported what it knows and has now been taken without credit, as part of this litmus test the UN has failed: the car belongs to UNTSO mission, in Tel Aviv, and the car plate is 205. Photo here. Both are civilian international staff of UNTSO mission headquartered in Jerusalem. "Their names are known."

It asked, now what will corrupt censor Guterres do?

 Belatedly, after trying to cover up for three days, on the evenin gof June 26 from Dujarric's $10 million penthouse apartment on 86th Street on Manhattan Upper East Side, this: "We are deeply disturbed by content of video apparently involving personnel from #UNTSO. An investigation was swiftly launched & is moving very quickly. Appropriate action will be taken. 9:25 PM · Jun 25, 2020 from New York, USA·Twitter for iPhone." Photo here, credit to Inner City Press for example here. And here, in Austria.

  Inner City Press does not have confidence in the UN's limited and belated self-investigation, which is excluding whistleblowers' information. Dujarric, presumably for Guterres, has been covering up dozens of UN child rapes for at least the past year. Inner City Press has been asking about them; Dujarric and Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up and banned. Dujarric said he would answer written questions, but then he stopped. And now, all if-asked information about UN rapes is withheld. So, no. It is time for accountability, and an end to UN censorship. Watch this site.

Tellingly, in terms of UN censorship (alliance), in a Press-less "press conference" on June 25 those allowed in by Melissa Fleming did not ask about this obvious scandal. Periscope here.

 Nor the June 22 admission by Sri Lanka former PR Kohona that his country led a campaign to get Inner City Press ousted and banned from the UN after it reported on mass killings in Sri Lanka. Inner City Press has sent out and will send out many more requests for response and action, and will report on results. Watch this site.
