UN Guterres Wastes Public Money in Lisbon Again While Banning Press Which Asks of Cost

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 11 –  While the UN cries poor and demands from the public more money - none of which goes to the UN's victims in Haiti of the cholera the UN brought, or the victims of its peacekeepers' rapes in central Africa - UNSG Antonio Guterres repeatedly uses public money to fly to his real home in Lisbon, Portugal.

    On January 11 and 12, soon after Guterres went on a three week junket the last ten days of which were undisclosed, he is back in Lisbon again on the public dime. Inner City Press has repeatedly asked for a disclosure by the UN of the costs to the public. These response has been ouster from the UN, and no answers.  

On January 11 Guterres or more likely one of his many publicly paid propaganda staffers tweeted a photograph of him in Lisbon (in a way that a recent photo of him in a tuxedo at the opera there, with UN Security, was not tweeted by the UN.) Inner City Press replied with a question, here. No answer.

  Here is the UN's spin, delivered on January 10 by Guterres Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq who has become, like his boss Stephane Dujarric, little more than a cover up for UN peacekeeper's rapes: "The Secretary-General tomorrow will take part in a ceremony in Lisbon to kick off that city’s designation as European Green Capital... The Secretary-General will attend the inauguration of an interactive installation titled 'One' and taking place at the Lisbon Oceanarium.  It is worth noting that the 2020 UN Ocean Conference will also be held in Lisbon in early June."  Worth noting by whom - Guterres' publicly funded travel agent?

 So Guterres will spend whatever is left of the public's money given to the UN to travel again to Lisbon in June. And how many more times between now and then?

  Often these trips are not disclosed. Inner City Press was banned from the UN while asking about just such undisclosed financial waste and conflicts of interest, such as with Guterres' taking money from Lisbon-based Gulbenkian Foundation which tried to sell its oil company to SDNY-convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy.

    Guteres is entirely corrupt, and a censor. Those officials and member states who do nothing about it are complicit in the corruption of the UN. We will have more, much more, on this.
