UN Guterres Breaks Quarantine With Pompeo In Mansion With Maskless Men After Vacation

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Video
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, Aug 20 – Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General who rarely takes questions and even had the Press which asked him about the mass killings in Cameroon thrown out of the UN, rolled up in three large SUV vehicles to the publicly-funded mansion he usually lives alone in, just before the COVID-19 pandemic spread in March Video here, & YouTube and Facebook.

  In August with most New Yorkers locked down or, if they leave the City and returned, harassed by contact tracers, Guterres went on an unannounced publicly funded vacation to Portugal.

 After his return and faux quarantine for ten days, including maskless men going in and out of his mansion, on August 19 Guterres' spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that US Secretary of State would be meeting directly with Guterres in the mansion on August 20 at 2 pm.

Inner City Press, though also covering the indictment and arraignment of Steve Bannon in the SDNY courthouse it covers, rushed uptown to see if this blatant violation of quarantine by Guterres would take place. It did: streaming Periscope video here; now on YouTube here. There were many UN staff and security, a waste of public money occasioned only by Guterres' selfishness and arrogance.

For two Saturday in a row Inner City Press streamed video of the mansion, empty. August 1 here. July 25 empty here. Then on August 5 UN Deputy Spokesman Farhan Haq who refuses Inner City Press' written questions belatedly said Guterres in "away" and would quarantine according to the regulations, again at public expense, when he returned.

   On August 11 Inner City Press between court cases it is covering biked by the Sutton Place mansion. Just during its 20 minutes there, two separate men went in and out of the mansion without any masks on, carrying with them whatever Guterres brought back. Video here.
Full Periscope stream here. This is not quarantine. From the UN to Inner City Press' written questions, no answer, on August 12.

  But on August 12, from departing Dutch PR Karel van Oosterom, this: "Honoured to be received by SG @UN @antonioguterres for a farewell visit. Gave him my book," and a photo.

   On August 18 Dujarric admitted, "he did travel to, he was on leave. He went home. He travelled to Portugal. He came back here. He's on a strict two‑week quarantine, and he followed whatever, the health regulations in Portugal, as well." Video here.

  Guterres should be impeached.

 As Inner City Press reported on August 4 when Haq and Melissa Fleming had it removed before it could ask a question on Guterres' lame "policy brief" on COVID-19 and education, Guterres' embargoed video was filmed July 23.

  In March at public expense his wife Catarina Vaz Pinto was with him, just as she was in September 2019 in expensive seats at the US Open tennis tournament as Guterres - and she? - censored the Press.
