Epstein Links Triggers Barclays Departure But in UN of Guterres Pedophile Payday Continues

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

UN GATE / SDNY, Nov 2 -- While Ghislaine Maxwell, now facing a November 29 trial for sex trafficking (Inner City Press coverage here), was filming videos into the United Nations, now deceased Jeffrey Epstein she procured for was working the angles just across First Avenue at a think tank connected to a UN Security Council member that refuses to answer questions.

  While that resulted in belated action - and continued non-answers to Press by Norway's UN ambassador - in the rest of the UN, connections to Epstein, Maxwell and other pedophiles even closer to home remain. In fact, UNSG Antonio Guterres in 2021 is withholding basic information about child rape by UN peacekeepers in DRC and Haiti and CAR, and banning the Press that asks.

 Meanwhile, even often rogue-like bank Barclays takes some action: it announced its CEO Jes Staley is immediately stepping down after the company became aware of preliminary conclusions by British banking regulators. The officials are probing how Staley spun his relationship with Epstein while head of private banking at JPMorgan Chase. (And what about Chase?)

   Inner City Press while in the UN asked questions about Maxwell and her UN-supported Terramar Project. Then, after UNSG Antonio Guterres whose UN Partnerships boss Amir Dossal was on Maxwell's Terramar board, had Inner City Press roughed up and banned, now 1317 days, Inner City Press published this.

  It linked Epstein, then alive in the MCC jail, to UN-affiliate International Peace Institute, who murky moves in Bahrain using UN-paid staff it had previously exposed.

   Now with Epstein dead and Maxwell facing trial, the Norwegian business newspaper DN has dug in this same waters (Epstein - IPI), bringing in Bill Gates, to boot. They report:

"Gates had been introduced to IPI by Jeffrey Epstein at a meeting in Strasbourg, France...That day Epstein received an email IPI's then finance director David Witt had sent to a grant administrator at the Gates Foundation. It was forwarded to him by Rød-Larsen. Epstein reacted strongly. Epstein was unhappy of the fact that he had not seen the phrasing earlier, and gave Rød-Larsen clear instructions on how to communicate with the Gates Foundation. He wrote «do not send anything else, anything! without letting me see it before it goes. not after. please». Epstein was concerned that the email from the finance director might create problems due to lack of bookkeeping. Epstein's concerns were forwarded by Rød-Larsen to Witt, who confirmed the exchange to DN.... Rød-Larsen has repeatedly stated that he does not speak to DN.... Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway met Epstein several times between 2011 and 2013."

  Norway is joining the UN Security Council in 2021 - they have already started attending and observing closed consultation.

But its ambassador Mona Juul - the wife of Terje
Rød-Larsen - has like Guterres and his spokesman Stephane Dujarric refused to answer any questions from Inner City Press, even while Juul head UN ECOSOC, to which Maxwell's Terramar pitched.

Now UN General Assembly President Volkan Bozkir, whose spokesman Brenden Varma blocks Inner City Press on Twitter for asking, has as Chef de Cabinet "Ms. Mary Skaare, Deputy Permanent Representative of Norway to the UN." She also does not answer, and so colludes in the censorship.

Today's UN is corrupt and complicit with child sex trafficking, and arrogant in its refusal to answer questions or even refrain from roughing up and banning Press which asks. Accountability for all this is necessary, and Inner City Press will not rest.
