With UN Retaliation Profiled Dudley & Pollard on Way Out amid Echo of Inner City Press Audio

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 19 – The UN's retaliation is not limited to banning the Press that Secretary General Antonio Guterres doesn't like - he also fired and penalizes UN staff who dare speak out about the Organization's abuses.  

 On June 16, a week before a documentary on the topic that's said to include leaked audio first published by Inner City Press, Inner City Press asked UN Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric, Farhan Haq and Melissa Fleming:

"What are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on the BBC piece about UN whistleblowers being retaliated against, set for worldwide view on June 21 but presumably already in the SG's awareness? See this."

 While Team Guterres has not answered, other parts of the UN system are said to be preparing damage control. Then there's these reports to Inner City Press from within the UN:  Michael Dudley is leaving OIOS.  Why would he do that at this time? 

Dudley has wanted the UN "D-2" post since he joined OIOS more than 15 years ago, and that post has still not been filled.  Dudley is 59. He has not reached retirement age, even in the UN, so why would he go now?  Has he been paid off? 

Dudley was always protected by Catherine Pollard, so now with her on her way out, did she approve a generous financial pay-out for Dudley while she still could?  Did Dudley realize he could not survive without her and so took the opportunity to run while he still could?  

Michael Dudley is married to Mercedes Gervilla, Head of Conduct & Discipline - the unit that publishes the minimalist data dumps about UN rapes that Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Farhan Haq then cover up.  Any news of movements with her post at this time cannot be dismissed as yet another “co-incidence.” 

Also, Ben Swanson -- who was promoted to ASG thanks to Catherine Pollard, and who has still not appointed a new Investigations Director -- has told staff in OIOS that the documentary next week (that Inner City Press has asked Dujarric and Haq about, without answer) will include a secret audio recording of him -- a recording exclusively first published by Inner City Press.

We'll have more on this.
