In Corrupt UN of Guterres UNSC Post Set Aside for Nils Schmieder After Viotti Gave Filho GB

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

UN GATE, Dec 13 – The UN has been so corrupted and dominated under UNSG Antonio Guterres that his chief of staff Luiza Viotti has been allowed to pick an over the hill Brazilian and give him Guinea Bissau. The corruption reaches in the the Security Council Affairs Division, as Inner City Press showed by exposing Rosemary DiCarlo's chief of staff's photographer husband getting the contract for the Council's website, before Guterres had Inner City Press banned.

 Now on 13 December 2019 from banned Inner City Press this exclusive, on the corruption in recruitment about the chef de cabinet Viotti’s friend. She recruited her friend José Viegas Filho from Brazil as SRSG Guinea-Bissau. He is not anymore there, but according to multiple locals he had dementia and could not engage with anyone. In Bissau during a meeting with international community, he didn’t know why he was there and they took him out and the Deputy SRSG proceeded with the meeting.

  Whistleblowers tell banned Inner City Press he was there because CdC Viotti was doing him a favor to flee corruption charges from Brazil, and because he was not well mentally, his wife took charge of his functions and attended meetings with him. In a meeting with the President of Guinea Bissau, it was clear that he was not well mentally. A EU representative asked if it was true that the SRSG was not mentally well. But the representative said that they learned that he would be leaving the mission. This is a horrible story of how corrupt is Guterres' cabinet.

   SCAD -- the Security Council Affairs Division -- is also corrupt in recruitment, as Inner City Press previously showed regarding the website. They posted a P4 position and other male staff knew they would take German Nils Schmieder who has been there only for a few months and bypass so many experienced colleagues. He was picked up from the roster few days after posting the post which was advised for a month and the EO questioned the procedures, when they received the memo but they are still going with the recruitment

The name of the person being recruited is Nils Schmieder. Inner City Press will have more on this.

On December 8, in a new low in hypocrisy, Guterres robo-tweeted: "People are right to be angry about corruption.  It diverts much needed resources from schools, hospitals and infrastructure.  Anti-Corruption Day highlights the need for us to unite to stop illicit financial flows draining these funds."

But he is a fraud, and a censor. Inner City Press, banned by Guterres from entering the UN for 522 days and counting for reporting on his corruption, replied: " UN HYPOCRISY: SG  @AntonioGuterres  omitted payments he took from #Gulbenkian Foundation, which tried to sell its oil company to convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy, from his public financial disclosure covering 2016 - and has banned Inner City Press 522 days."

  We'll have more on this. We will not rest, including until Inner City Press is re-allowed to ask questions at the UN noon briefing like the stgate media and retirees Guterres currently surrounds himself with, like any corrupt dictator.

 On November 22 Chinese state media "won" the third vice presidency of UNCA, albeit with only 40 votes of only 143 ballots supposedly representing journalists worldwide. The United Nations Correspondents Association is totally corrupt. Results here: state media in. Low turn out for a dwindling membership. Yet Guterres uses his scribes to continue censorship.

  On December 6 Inner City Press now banned from the UN 521 days and counting went after reporting on the SDNY court all day down to Wall Street. There Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman for Guterres and Ban Ki-moon before him, sauntered in tuxedo and flowers. Despite a previous on-camera promise to answer banned Inner City Press' questions, he has not, on ranging from Cameroon to UN child rapes. And on December 6, asked, he did not. Inner City Press tweeted video here. UNCA was selling access to Guterres to a slew of people in tuxedos and gowns, many with no UN connection.

Video here.

Inner City Press asked questions outside, of Guterres' chief of staff Viotta and USG Melissa Flemming (no answers), Nigerian UN PGA Bande about Cameroon (no answer), and to UNCA correspondents (VOA's long time UN bureau chief responded with her middle finger). Some were more polite, noted.

 An expensive car was auctioned outside. Inside, sponsored by a seller of facial sheet masks, UNCA celebrated state media and Egypt. Inner City Press has a right to re-enter the UN and asked questions, just like the retired and state media Guterres and Fleming allow in. We will continue on this.

 Now after UNsurprisingly omitting any and all coverage of China's abuse of Uighurs and Hong Kong from its bogus awards, the UN Censorship Alliance will hold a glitzy celebration of Guterres on Wall Street, no less, on December 6. They are entirely corrupt. No questions on the new UN rapes, links to fraud and bribes, nothing.

 Another proof: two of the top six spots are controlled by Italy, including a Treasurer Giampaolo Pioli who rented one of his Manhattan apartments, funded by a scam pasta company, to a Sri Lankan war criminal. He and Valeria Robecco quickly told a "publication" with UN office space, ONUItalia, that UNCA "remains Italian." The UN Correspondents Association is totally corrupt.

With China having a veto in UNCA, will stories about CEFC China Energy's proven bribery at the UN, and bid to buy an oil company linked to Guterres through the Gulbenkian Foundation, even get through a first round of review with this Chinese "journalism" veto? Fat chance.
