UN Quiet on Libya Isolation Law, As On Attacks on Press Where DPKO Is

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, May 5 -- After the Libyan foreign ministry was surrounded by armed men, today the Libyan parliament is passing the so-called political isolation law banned people with links to the Gaddafi era from any political role.

  Where has the UN, which rushed to put a UN Mission in Libya -- without 200 armed "peacekeepers," after its plan was published and exposed by Inner City Press, TV video here -- been on this? Very quiet. It wanted to go along to get along, as increasingly happens in so many places.

  Earlier this year Inner City Press asked UN envoy Mitri about the proposed political isolation, and his first and main answer was that it was up to the Libyans.

  This from a UN which just on May 2 pretended to be standing up for press freedom. Video here and here. Apparently, that too is just up to governments.

  On May 4, Inner City Press again asked the UN about South Sudan, the detention without charge of the acting editor of the Juba Monitor. No answer.

  The UN's Department of Peacekeeping Operations under Herve Ladsous, who refuses to answer any Inner City Press questions, runs a big mission in South Sudan. But as elsewhere, it's, go along to get along. And, even in UN Headquarters, partner with trolls who seek to get investigative media thrown out. To this has the UN sunk. Watch this site.
