UN Guterres Lies With Correspondents After Withheld That UNnamed Philippines Dip Has COVID 19

By Matthew Russell Lee

UN GATE, March 14 – How corrupt and irresponsible is the UN of Antonio Guterres, enabled by his in-house sychophant correspondents? Well, while Guterres roughs up and bans the Press which asks about Coronavirus and his complicity, with Cameroon, an unnamed diplomat from the Philippines came down with COVID-19.

 On March 13 it emerged that when the UN had this information it only sent it to its less than 100 "active" resident correspondents, members of the UN Correspondents Association on which Chinese state media Xinhua has an ongoing veto-weilding seat. Aren't organizations supposed to tell all those who are in jeopardy? Today's UN and UNCA are irresponsible, and a menace.

 Now on March 14 this from UNCA a/k/a the UN Censorship Alliance: "Dear colleagues,  As we all continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 at UN Headquarters, the UNCA Executive Committee would like to take the opportunity to advise all colleagues to take the necessary precautionary measures detailed by the United Nations Human Resources Portal , New York State Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  In our latest update with the Spokesperson's Office and MALU we have been informed that UN Headquarters will remain OPEN in the next days for essential staff and all UN accredited media until further notice. The daily noon briefing will take place at its regular time in the press briefing room.  In addition, should you need to alert us of any recent cases or situation on your behalf or your colleague’s behalf please communicate with the UNCA office as soon as possible in order to ensure the safety of the press corps and all colleagues at the UN.  Thank you for your attention.  Valeria Robecco President, United Nations Correspondents Association."

 Yeah - tell them so they had withhold the information, giving it to Xinhua but not the independent Press which actually watchdogs the UN. This symbiosis, mixed with legal immunity / impunity, is dangerous. We'll have more on this.

  Inner City Press has asked, before the UN's March 13 noon briefing, "March 13-1: On the Coronavirus Covid-19, please immediately state the conditions and mitigation for the lay off of all Delegates Dining Room staff which Inner City Press reported yesterday after being contacted by staff complaining there is no mitigation of economic harm. Separately, has SG Guterres been tested for COVID-19?" No answer at all, nor to a question about a Portuguese visitor to Guterres. Watch this site.

While the United Nations preaches how countries should mitigate the impacts of their response to Coronavirus COVID-19, at UN Headquarters under Secretary General Antonio Guterres the Delegates Dining Room workers are being summarily laid off, with no mitigation. Photo here.

  Workers in the UN Delegates Dining Room, outraged at the callousness of Guterres who lives alone in a four story mansion on 57th Street and Sutton Place, sent banned Inner City Press a copy of their lay-off notice.

  Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up by his Security - one of whom Augustine Pavel recently jumped off a building on 45th Street and Second Avenue, Inner City Press exclusive here after no answers from UN - rough up Inner City Press after it interviewed Cameroon's Ambassador on 3 July 2018; his Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming have banned Inner City Press since, without no explanation or right to appeal. These people are corrupt hypocrites - and increasingly, criminals. Watch this site.

On February 29 Inner City Press exclusively published an internal UNESCO email leaked to it about the agency's contact with the Coronavirus COVID-19 and its cover up. UN system boss Antonio Guterres, typically pro-China, has refused banned Press questions on it.

   This is Antonio Guterres' UN. We will have more on that.
