At UN Silence on Journalist Murder Amid Italy Food Fest Pitched by UN Correspondents Assoc

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 24 –  How corrupt and bought by China is today's UN?

Well, amid escalating protests and repression of anti-Xi protests of COVID-lockdowns, from Xinjiang to Shanghai and Beijing, the UN of SG Antonio Guterres and his weak human rights commissioner Volker Turk have said nothing. 

Amid canned statements about other topics, including claims of UN concern at rapes while Guterres covered up for UN rapist Karim Elkorany and unindicted rapist UN Peacekeepers, nothing on the protests in China, the dead in Urumqi, journalists including from BCC beaten up.  

 In January 2023, no comments much less actions by Guterres' UN and his spokesman Stephane Dujarric on the murder in adn by Cameroon of journalist Martinez Zogo. And none of those allowed in even asked.

This after Guterres was sold on December 9, 2022 by the UN Correspondents Association, which has among its membership Iran state media which broadcasts forced confessions.  Guterres refused a Press question about his silence in Qatar here.

On December 6, UNCA released its clean slate of "leaders" for 2023 - with no competition for any post.

  It turns out there were only 50 voters - lowest turnout ever, for a groups that claims the right to block media globally from entering the UN -- and now China has two state media seats - Xinhua and CCTV, replacing AFP - Russia, Turkey, and the top award to a crony. Some got as few of 26 of the 50 votes, even with no competition. Photo here. No response to Quinn Emanuel's letter - nor this appeal of ban. It's the UN Censorship Alliance.

 What they do, under present "leadership," is promote Italy, gastronomy: " Dear colleagues,   UNCA is extending an invitation to the Region Piemonte reception that will take place tomorrow, Wednesday, January 25th, 2023, from 6 PM to 9 PM, at the UNHQ, South Dining Room (4th Floor).   Guests will have a chance to taste the specialties prepared by Michelin Star chef Massimo Camia and his daughter Elisabetta along with other unique food and wines from Regione Piemonte, famous for its white truffles and some of Italy's best vineyards.   Please see the invitation below.         Thank you for your attention,  Valeria Robecco President, United Nations Correspondents Association." This is today's UN - no comment on the murder of jouranlists, banning of Press, stuff your face with Piedmonte.
