UN Corrupted by Norway Censoring For Jeffrey Epstein Links Mona Juul DRC Cameroon COVID UNAnswered

By Matthew Russell Lee Patreon Song Video Ruling
Maxwell Book Decrypt - LightRead - Radio - Podcast

SDNY / UN GATE, Jan 7 – Ghislaine Maxwell, charged with six counts of sex trafficking and other charges, was late on December 29 found guilty on five of the six counts. Inner City Press, which pressed for a public call-in line and unsealing of exhibits throughout, live tweeted it here. Now #MaximumMaxwell book here.

The day after the guilty verdict for Jeffrey Epstein's procurer and partner Ghislaine Maxwell, Inner City Press wrote to Norway's Mission to the UN, whose Ambassador Mona Juul is president of the UN Security Council for January 2022.

 Juul is also the wife and partner of Terje Roed-Larsen, whose International Peace Institute connections to Epstein Inner City Press exposed, before it was thrown out of the UN by UNSG Antonio Guterres (with his own Maxwell links. Inner City Press was also removed by IPI, here.)

Inner City Press again asked Norway's UN Mission about these connections, including Epstein's $130,000 personal loan to Roed-Larsen (and at least $650,000 in grants to IPI), and for access to Juul's January 4, 1 pm press conference of UNSC President. 

  A week later there had been no answer at all - total corruption. Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway cavorted with Epstein long after he served time for under-age sex; the Celina Mildfart connection was testified to at the Maxwell trial.  

 So on January 7 Inner City Press sent not only Juul but also Astrid Sehl, Trine Heimerback and Nini Pharo Halle (other Norway mission staffers, paid by the public, are listed only as firstname.lastname, corrupt) this:

"Again, because you are president of the UN Security Council for January, Inner City Press is sending you these questions for response on deadline - be aware they have been put to the UN Spokesperson and Secretary General as well, without answer - what has the UN come to? This is to you, on deadline:  On DRC / MONUSCO and Burundi, what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on that Burundian troops have been sighted in South-Kivu province, eastern DRC, according to local sources?  On Cameroon what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on that A senior official involved in Cameroon's hosting of the Africa Cup of Nations has assured that separatist rebels pose no threat to the tournament, which begins on Sunday.  Engamba Emmanuel Ledoux admitted that last week groups fighting for the independence of Anglophone Cameroon set off an explosion in the town of Limbé, which will host some of the games.  But he said the government had introduced security measures to stop the rebels from attacking the event or the nearby town of Buer, where some of the players are expected to stay.  "The threats have been going on. This is not the first time. You know, we organized the Chan [African Nations Championship] last year within the same environment," he said.   On Burundi, Rwanda and COVID what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on that twelve Rwandans including women and children have been pushed out by Burundian authorities after refusing to get the Covid jab.  They spent more than five days on the Nyakarama hill in Kirundo province in northern Burundi.  They said they had fled the ongoing mandatory vaccination campaign in Rwanda.  The provincial governor, Albert Hatungimana, directed that they be deported to Rwanda.  Last Thursday, nine other Rwandan nationals were repatriated to their country by the authorities in the province. They had also fled the mandatory vaccination campaign.  In a security meeting, the governor signalled on Tuesday that he could not welcome people who do not adhere to the government's Covid-19 response programme.  He said everyone had to get vaccinated so as to be allowed to stay in the country.      On the UN's ban of Inner City Press, from UNHQ and also UNDT proceeding, what  is SG Guterres' response to this:  UNAT:   my appeal was initially assigned to a three judge panel, two of whom ended up on the dissent favoring me. So it appears they recruit four more judges, without following their own rules and informing me.   From the dissent of Judge Colgan, Auckland, New Zealand, Judge Sandhu, Vancouver, Canada and Judge Neven, Brussels, Belgium: "In addition to not being entitled to use  it as a sanction for contempt against Mr. Lee for reasons set out by us above, we do not  consider that the UNDT can otherwise ban his attendance at hearings indefinitely and in  blanket fashion. Accepting that closing hearings of proceedings may arguably include closing  them selectively to certain persons, exceptional circumstances will be required for such an  order to be made, and on a case-by-case basis."   But SG Guterres has created a lifetime ban on Inner City Press, at least since 3 July 2018, with no answer by USG Melissa Fleming, to Quinn Emanuel's letter. How is this consistent with the most basic respect for press freedom?    Even the 4-3 majority decision of Judge Halfeld, Presiding,   Juiz de Fora, Brazil, Judge Murphy, Cape Town, South Africa, Judge Raikos, Athens, Greece  and Judge Knierim, Hamburg, Germanyconcludes: "insofar as Mr. Lee may or may not have a legitimate grievance, redress does  not lie in the hands of the Appeals Tribunal." And the SG??  On Tunisia what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on that Supporters of a former Tunisian justice minister say he’s fighting for his life after refusing food and medication since his arrest last week.  Noureddine Bhiri, deputy chairman of the Islamist Ennahdha party, is accused of possible terrorism offences. His supporters deny the allegations.  Mr Bhiri, who played a central role in Tunisian politics before President Kais Saied suspended parliament last July, is said to suffer from several serious pre-existing health problems.  His Ennahdha party colleague, Samir Dilou, said medical sources had described the former minister as being “between life and death”.  On South Sudan, what are the comments and actions if any on that South Sudan’s President Salva Kiir has dismissed the central bank governor and appointed a replacement.  The dismissal of Dier Tong Ngor was announced in a presidential decree read on the national broadcaster on Monday night.  No reasons were given for his sacking.  He was replaced by Moses Makur Deng who has been a director-general in charge of banks’ supervision and research at the bank.  South Sudan’s economy is driven by oil, which accounts for nearly 90% of the country’s national budget.  The economy is in a bad shape due to the conflict and the drop in global oil price as a result of Covid-19 pandemic.  On UN sexual abuse, as Inner City Press asked each of you on Dec 27, 2021 with no answer, "On UN sexual exploitation and abuse - alleged - this is a request on the new cases of UN sexual abuse by UN "peacekeepers" from Cameroon UN "peaceekeepers" in CAR and Indian peacekeeper in DRC data dumped at 11:31 a.m. on Dec 27, 2021 along with another case in CAR by a "peacekeeper" from Burundi, and the previous UN child rape in CAR by UN "peacekeeping" troop Burkina Faso (Oct 19) and from Burundi - child rape! - and SEA by Tanzania troops in DRC data dumped at 12:02 pm on Oct 7, and earlier (unanswered) from Peru (Sept 29), Gabon and "the Congo" - and Nepal peacekeeper child rape in DRC - data-dumped at 10:07 am on July 21, 2021 that you immediately provide the "if asked" information and answer this:    Why has USG Fleming not deigned to answer in any way the Quinn Emanuel law firm's letter to her dated July 6, 2021 regarding re-admitting Inner City Press as a UN resident correspondent?    also all those earlier in July and the June 15 data-dumped cases none of you have answered Inner City Press on, also about case of child rape in CAR by a Gabon "peacekeeper," a UN civilian child rape in DRC and a UN civil sex abuse case in South Sudan, all data dumped at 12:35 pm on Jan 5, 2021, after Farhan Haq's 2-question "briefing" and the earlier cases of  child rape and sexual exploitation by UN "peacekeepers" from Morocco, Uruguay, Ethiopia, Senegal and Benin and again Cameroon, in DRC and Central African Republic just cursorily data dumped onto the UN website today December 10 (Human Rights Day and that you immediately provide the "granular" information that was promised today at noon to correspondents who barely ask or publish about this topic. What is being done for the victims? Also, again, what is Guterres' answer, which you refused to provide after banned Inner City Press asked you and others in writing on the morning of August 19 that you "immediately provide all if-asked and additional information about the new allegation of SEA announced of child rape by a Cameroonian "peacekeeper" in DR Congo, and why this has been left so long UNanswered - and also why previously published charges are no longer in the data to which UN Peacekeeping Conduct and Discipline points, including what if being done for these victims and any steps taken to avoid this constant repetition of abuse despite the SG's ostensible commitments. Again, are new allegations being buried elsewhere on the data page? Inner City Press is asking in writing because banned from the noon briefings and any follow up questions, now for more than a year. On August 24 Inner City Press re-applied for admission to cover the UNGA high level week; on August 30 it was summarily rejected, with no or only Kafka-esque reasoning. Today, as before none of Inner City Press' written questions, including on Cameroon, have been answered. This is a request that you immediately confirm receipt of these questions and requests.  This is a request that you immediately confirm receipt of these questions and requests and explain how UN spox and official blocking such questions is not complicity -Matthew Russell Lee,"

  Nothing. No answer. Totally corrupted.

Inner City Press covered the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, and all the comes before and after it; #CourtCaseCast and song I, Song 2, Song 3, fifth song, Nov 27 song Dec 4 song and Dec 11 song (YouTube demonetized it) and Dec 18 song (no ads) and Dec 24 song (also no ads - demonetized by YouTube)

   In the media coverage of Maxwell, media all of the world used a video and stills from it of Maxwell speaking in front of a blue curtain, like here.

 What they did not mention is something Inner City Press has been asking the UN about, as under UNSG Antonio Guterres with his own sexual exploitation issues (exclusive video and audio) it got roughed up and banned from the UN: Ghislaine Maxwell had a ghoulish United Nations press conference, under the banner of the "Terramar Project," here.

 On July 5, after some crowd-sourcing, Inner City Press reported on another Ghislaine Maxwell use of the United Nations, facilitated by Italy's Permanent Representative to the UN, UN official Nikhil Seth and Amir Dossal, who also let into the UN and in one case took money from convicted UN briber Ng Lap Seng, and Patrick Ho of CEFC China Energy, also linked to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

  At the Ghislaine Maxwell UN event, the UN Deputy Secretary General was directly involved.

List of (some of) the participants on Patreon here.

  Inner City Press has published a phone of Maxwell in the UN with Dossal, here. But the connection runs deeper: Dossal with "25 years of UN involvement" was on Terrarmar's board of directors, one of only five directors, only three not related to Maxwell by blood and name.

The directors: Ghislaine Maxwell, Christine Malina-Maxwell, Steven Haft, Christine Dennison and... Amir Dossal. Inner City Press is publishing this full 990 on Patreon here.

  Dossal has operated through the UN Office of Partnership, with Antonio Guterres and his deputy Amina J. Mohammed, here.

And the links to the world of UN bribery, including Antonio Guterres through the Gulbenkian Foundation, runs deeper. More to follow.

Antonio Guterres claims he has zero tolerance for sexual exploitation, but covers it up and even participate in it. He should be forced to resign - and/or have immunity waived.

  Terramar has been dissolved, even though Maxwell's former fundraiser / director of development Brian Yurasits still lists the URL on his (protected) Twitter profile, also here.

  But now Inner City Press has begun to inquire into Ghislaine Maxwell's other United Nations connections, starting with this photograph of another day's (or at least another outfit's) presentation in the UN, here. While co-conspirator Antonio Guterres has had Inner City Press banned from any entry into the UN for two years and a day, this appears to be in the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) chamber. We'll have more on this, and on Epstein and the UN. Watch this site.

  The case is US v. Maxwell, 20-cr-330 (Nathan).
