UN Sexploitation in UN Vehicle Leaked to Inner City Press Now Litmus Test For Officials and States

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

UN GATE, June 24 – 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 721 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.

  UN member states talk a lot about zero tolerance, and press freedom. Inner City Press sent formal request for action on the video, and on Guterres' 722 day long ban on Inner City Press, to countries' UN mission, including twice to those of France, Germany, Belgium and UK. From others, so far this, from Denmark: "Thank you for contacting the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs must inform you that your enquiry will be processed and filed in the Ministry." And?

  Inner City Press after inquiries uploaded the video and many hours ago asked Guterres, his head of communications Melissa Fleming, spokesman Stephane Dujarric and some 30 UN system officials about it: "This is a formal request for UNSG Guterres' comment and action on the video Inner City Press has just uploaded of UN sexual exploitation in a UN marked vehicle, here

  as well as on 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, as Inner City Press was also doing as to Cameroon when your UN banned it now for 721 day. What is the appeals process? On deadline."   Now by the next day, no response from these UN officials, except this from UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression: "Your message couldn't be delivered to [David A. Kaye] because it exceeds the size limit." Ironic. Inner City Press has sent out and will send out many more requests for response and action. Watch this site.
