UNSG Guterres Rewards Sexual Harassment As Gives Hochschild Tech Post UNqualifed For

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive CJR  Video

UN GATE, Jan 23 – How corrupt and hypocritical is the United Nations of Secretary General Antonio Guterres?

So much so that while Guterres claims zero tolerance and to be a feminist, now he has again  rewarded and covered up sexual misconduct in his own office. In a musical chairs personnel move on April 18, 2019, a day after he continued his now 935 day censorship of the Press, Guterres named as his new Assistant Secretary-General for Strategic Coordination one Volker Türk, who when Inner City Press asked him about refugees chased by Paul Biya's Cameroon army into Nigeria seemed not to know about it. Guterres, as we have reported, not only took a golden statue from Biya, but went silent on the killings since Cameroon was chair of the UN Budget Committee.

But it's worse: Turk took the position from Fabrizio Hochschild Drummond of Chile "who was appointed as Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on the Preparations for the Commemoration of the United Nations’ 75th Anniversary." This promotion was, ghoulishly, Guterres rewarding what multiple staff say was Hochschild's relationship with another junior staff member.

On January 22 with the failed 75th anniversary complete with the censorship of critical views,  Guterres recycled this abuser as his chief of technology, while still refusing all questions from Inner City Press - which was answered on Jan 22 by Andrew Yang, and by the IMF and others.

And on January 23, from UN staff who know, this came to Inner City Press: "What is actually most astonishing about this appointment is that a Secretary-General who claims that the UN under his leadership is making the impact of technology on human rights a priority has chosen as his "Tech Envoy" someone who profoundly ignorant of technology.  Without his talking points prepared by others, he is instantly lost on any technical topic. He has no clue what a blockchain is, what machine learning is, etc.  How can you be an "envoy" to a community that you neither understand nor respect?"

Guterres and those around him are corrupt.

One of the staff members tells Inner City Press it in these words: Hochschild's "promotion to USG was because the SG wanted him out of his office after he was caught having an affair with a junior staff member. In terms of power play this is a reward for sexual harassment." Talk about MeToo - the faux feminist Guterres covers up and rewards such behavior. And later on April 18 Ms. Nahla Valji, Senior Gender Adviser, Executive Office of the Secretary-General, was bragging about Guterres and feminism. What hypocrisy. We'll have more on this - while Guterres and his spokespeople refuse to answer any of Inner City Press' written questions, we still have sources, many sources.
