After Inner City Press Scoop on UN Prostitution Video More Pick Ups and Questions to UNTSO

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive, Patreon
Germany - Honduras - UN Q - Tel Aviv Austria

UN GATE, June 27 – 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.

  And this, more closely reported than BBC: "The video, released by Inner City Press on Tuesday, shows a woman in a red dress straddling a man in the back seat of a vehicle with U.N. marking as it drives away.    Inner City Press, an outlet that has reported and shined a light on corruption at the world body for years and was banned from reporting on U.N. grounds in New York in 2018, reports that the vehicle was part of a U.N. Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) mission in Tel Aviv, Israel."

  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.

  Inner City Press has written to UNTSO and... no response.

 Inner City Press formally requested the code to ask questions at the June 26 UN noon briefing, including to a UN Peacekeeping official who spoke there, misleading, about COVID-19 - and Inner City Press will continue to demand re-accreditation.

  On June 26, despite the story now being reported from Austria to Israel to Switzerland, those let in from Al Jazeera and other publications asked nothing - but one did, gratefully, video here. And, because they didn't want to double down on cover up at least right now, here in the UN transcript: "update on the statement regarding UNTSO, the Inner City Press story.  You said it could be UNTSO?"

UN Spokesman: "No, what I, what I'm saying is that it's clearly an UNTSO vehicle.… The people involved are just about identified." When?

   Now the UN is trying to reclaim the narrative. Their own propaganda UN News ran a story - which, like the BBC's pathetic story, made it appear that the UN proactively began investigating itself, ignoring that Inner City Press first published and asked Guterres et al about it on June 23. (Dujarric calls four days "a little more than two day). Who wrote the BBC pro-UN story? Their last listed UN Correspondent's a good friend of Dujarric. We'll have more on this. Watch this site.
