UN Spox Dujarric Covers Up UN Rapes and Cameroon As UN Correspondents Association Sells SG

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR Letter PFTracker
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

UN GATE / WALL ST, Dec 6 – The UN has been so corrupted and dominated by China under UNSG Antonio Guterres that now its ostensible journalist award is controlled with Chinese state media. On November 22 Chinese state media "won" the third vice presidency of UNCA, albeit with only 40 votes of only 143 ballots supposedly representing journalists worldwide. The United Nations Correspondents Association is totally corrupt. Results here: state media in. Low turn out for a dwindling membership. Yet Guterres uses his scribes to continue censorship.

  On December 6 Inner City Press now banned from the UN 521 days and counting went after reporting on the SDNY court all day down to Wall Street. There Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman for Guterres and Ban Ki-moon before him, sauntered in tuxedo and flowers. Despite a previous on-camera promise to answer banned Inner City Press' questions, he has not, on ranging from Cameroon to UN child rapes. And on December 6, asked, he did not. Inner City Press tweeted video here.

The event? UNCA was selling access to Guterres to a slew of people in tuxedos and gowns, many with no UN connection.

Video here.

Inner City Press asked questions outside, of Guterres' chief of staff Viotta and USG Melissa Flemming (no answers), Nigerian UN PGA Bande about Cameroon (no answer), and to UNCA correspondents (VOA's long time UN bureau chief responded with her middle finger). Some were more polite, noted.

 An expensive car was auctioned outside. Inside, sponsored by a seller of facial sheet masks, UNCA celebrated state media and Egypt. Inner City Press has a right to re-enter the UN and asked questions, just like the retired and state media Guterres and Fleming allow in. We will continue on this.

 Now after UNsurprisingly omitting any and all coverage of China's abuse of Uighurs and Hong Kong from its bogus awards, the UN Censorship Alliance will hold a glitzy celebration of Guterres on Wall Street, no less, on December 6. They are entirely corrupt. No questions on the new UN rapes, links to fraud and bribes, nothing.

 Another proof: two of the top six spots are controlled by Italy, including a Treasurer Giampaolo Pioli who rented one of his Manhattan apartments, funded by a scam pasta company, to a Sri Lankan war criminal. He and Valeria Robecco quickly told a "publication" with UN office space, ONUItalia, that UNCA "remains Italian." The UN Correspondents Association is totally corrupt.

With China having a veto in UNCA, will stories about CEFC China Energy's proven bribery at the UN, and bid to buy an oil company linked to Guterres through the Gulbenkian Foundation, even get through a first round of review with this Chinese "journalism" veto? Fat chance.
