South Sudan Diplomat Sued For Not Paying Wages11 Months Trashes Workers As Guterres

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 9 –  South Sudan's Deputy UN Ambassador Cecilia Adeng is accused not paying her driver for 11 months for transporting her and her family around in a Mercedes, usually on private trips.  

In a complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York which Inner City Press has reported from daily since UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres had it banned for asking about his collusion in genocide, driver Ridwane Mourmouni says he "drove both her an members of her family around the city on a daily basis. Many, and likely the majority, of the drives were personal in nature."

South Sudan has hired a Lexington Avenue firm and argues it is entirely immune under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act; it brags about "her UN Identity Card issued by the Chief of Protocol for the UN."

Apparently, a get out of jail card for non-payment and "slavery" of employees.

Now in advance of an initial conference, South Sudan's Lexington Avenue firm has told Judge Oetken about a murky "friend of Mr. Moumouni" which called it in advance of November 12.

The case is Mourmouni et al. v. Permanent Mission of the Republic of South Sudan to the UN, 20-cv-3603 (Oetken)
