With UN Retaliation Profiled By BCC Stolen Audio and BBC Collusion with UN Censorship

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 20 – 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, on June 20 BBC World tweeted, "The BBC was handed a secret recording of Ben Swanson, staff had come to him in tears describing how an assistant secretary general had put his hand down her trousers."

HANDED? Inner City Press exclusively published the audio long ago on SoundCloud here. It has asked the BBC about it, and why its correspondents so rare ask about UN wrongdoing including banning Press, in which some of them have colluded.

  One BBC correspondent at the UN (still on BBC TV) protested when Inner City Press reported the anti-Tamil comments of one of the UK's UN Relief Chiefs, saying, You cost us access. Another, still on BBC Radio, took part in the UN Correspondents Association push to oust Inner City Press for reporting that UNCA's president Giampaolo Pioi took rent money from a Sri Lankan war criminal then gave his government's genocide denial film an UNCA screening. There's more - what this site.
