In Senegal Corruption Construction Visit by UN DSG After SG Guterres Seck in NY Diamniadio

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 25 –  It was a huge construction project, too large - perfect for stealing money from.

Antonio Guterres stood in a hardhat surveying it. Just has the architect of the Senegal Mission to the UN in New York was having to sue Fode Seck for millions stolen from that project, imagine how much could be stolen from this "UNO House." Big Tony didn't have to imagine.  

 Inner City Press had covered the Senegal corruption case in New York, and been denounced on Senxibar for it. Guterres still had the Press banned from any entry to the UN [see here], trying to keep that money flowing. But here at Diamniadio it was all on display. 

And the UN Department of Global Communication under Melissa Fleming, who kept Inner City Press banned and refused even to answer letters from two pro bono law firms about it, shamelessly pumped out video of Big Tony in his hard hat. [Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said he won't answer questions due to "danger," see Fortune Magazine here]

 It was like footage from the corruption construction of Las Vegas. But who would play Bugsy Siegel?

On November 25, 2023, a work day, the UN skipped even having a noon briefing and instead pumping out this canned statement: "On 23 November, the Government of Senegal inaugurated the United Nations House in Diamniadio, a new city located some 30 kilometers outside the capital Dakar. The landmark event was chaired by President Macky Sall and attended by Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed and other dignitaries.  During the ceremony, Ms. Mohammed, representing Secretary-General António Guterres, expressed deep honour and gratitude for the establishment of the UN House." And Tony's UN said, Show Me the Money.
