UN Staffer Who Drugged & Raped 13 Women Got Soft Plea Deal now 15 Max Vs 20 for GMax

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 26 – Into a courthouse periodically enflamed by sex abuse scandal cases, from Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell to the quieter echo of Kevin Spacey, UN rapist Karim Elkorany came in quietly, indicted and quickly released on bond. 

 But any objective review of the case - at least 13 forcible rapes after drugging - make it clear it deserved more attention.

Was it the victims, aid workers in far away Iraq?

Or that the perpetrator was himself ostensibly an aid worker, or Communications Specialist, for the United Nations under Melissa Fleming?   

Fleming, who had been Elkorany's boss, refused repeatedly to answer email questions about the case, as did UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric. They banned the questioner, and refused to answer even a letter from pro bono law firm Quinn Emanuel.   

 Like Elkorany, who flashed his blue UN "passport" to get security to allow his to keep raping, they had immunity. That Elkorany, allowed to return to the US by UNSG Antonio Guterres, raped Victim 2 here too made no difference to them.  

 Despite the graphic description of penetration and surgeries, the text messages with a big-name journalist / UN Correspondent bragging about grinding up Zanax and causing pain, little was done. Outside of Inner City Press, and musing pieces involving Kurt Wheelock, there was little coverage.

A plea deal to a mere 33 months, when Maxwell got 20 years, and R.Kelly 30 years.
