UN Stop Rape In Conflict Campaign Disinvites Press As Asks About UN Peacekeepers Raping

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

UN GATE, Sept 19 –  Under UNSG Antonio Guterres, the UN has been covering up rapes for years. Earlier this month a South Sudan Ambassador to the UN committed rape in NYC then fled the US with immunity; Guterres had no comments.

On September 19, three new cases of sexual abuse by UN peacekeepers were data dumped on the UN's website. Inner City Press banned from entering the UN due to its reporting, asked Guterre and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming in writing for basic information, of the type given under Ban Ki-moon, on the three casses. None was provided.  

Now they have gone further. Inner City Press RSVP-ed for a UN event on September 21, "Addressing CRSV: Private Sector Opportunities for Engagement” with CTG (Committed to Good), and the launching of an innovative partnership with Bibliothèques Sans Frontières." The event is promoted by the UN Foundation, at the Blue Gallery at 222 East 46th Street (not in the UN). 

 Inner City Press was told on September 13 by Laura Katherine Navalta,  Bernadette Sene and Fukumi Orikasa:
"Dear Mr Lee,   Thank you very much for your email. We acknowledge receipt of your RSVP and look forward to welcoming you to our event!"

But on September 19, suddenly:

"Dear Mr Lee,   I hope you are well.   Unfortunately due to an unexpected high number of RSVPs at the ministerial level and a last minute change in plans, we no longer have room for more press at this event. I do apologise for this change and thank you for your understanding.   Have a lovely evening!   Best,  Laura."

This went to a larger group, now includiing Lindsay Forslund and  Geraldine Boezio. In charge of this operation is Pramila Patten, These people take public money to cover up UN rapes. Watch this site.
