Burundi Orders UN Office Closed in 40 Days SG Guterres Is Silent As Bans Press Which Asks

By Matthew Russell Lee, Photo, Video, CJR

UN GATE, Nov 23 – Burundi's government wanted all human rights presence out, and its then UN ambassador Albert Shingiro pushed it, using a shadow Twitter account @Jabaga70 which talked about killing "dogs" - meaning humans, not canines. Inner City Press outed him here, and asked UN about it here.

  See also this (Guterres grinning cravenly at Shingiro), and Inner City Press video of Shingiro inside the UN, and here outside the UN after dictator (loving) Guterres threw Inner City Press out.

  Now the "new" Burundi government has ordered the UN rep Office closed by Dec 31, 2021 - and Guterres has said nothing, while banning Inner City Press which asks. The retirees and Chinese and Middle Eastern state media he lets in do not ask about it.  Typically, silence from Guterres who has been evading and violating COVID quarantine rules, going to Boston to meet a flight from Lisbon. The COVID - Nkurunziza connection has been reported even by those who ignore Guterres' censorship. And this while Guterres and Melissa Fleming take money from IKEA and Pierre Omidyar's Luminate to "drown out" speech they don't like, Inner City Press first story here.
 Another story is coming - now Fleming appears on Luminate's site.

 Guterres' "ASG for Africa" Bintou Keita went to Burundi and said that everything is fine, you - or perhaps just she - can move around the country at any hour and there is no problem. UN propaganda article here, ghoulish laughing English audio here. Expect nothing or worse from the UNSC meeting on Burundi set for the end of October by Kafando and the South Africa mission, complicit in Guterres' now 728 day ban on Inner City Press.

   So far in 2020, Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming have refused to answer any of Inner City Press' written questions on Burundi and other topics.
