UN Corruption Shown By Jeremic While PGA Making Potash Deals For CEFC Which Guterres Won't Audit Censors Press

By Matthew Russell Lee, HK here

FEDERAL COURTHOUSE, December 4 – That UN Presidents of the General Assembly do sketchy business deals not only after leaving office but during their tenure is proved by an email Serbia's Vuk Jeremic sent about potash while he was still PGA to the UN accredited NGO China Energy Fund Committee, which SG Antonio Guterres has refused to audit despite Inner City Press asking him about it for a year. Inner City Press has obtained and highlighted Jeremic's emails to CEF'c Patrick Ho, here. In it, Jeeremic wrote about a potash deal he hoped would be profitable for CEFC. Why did he hope that? Here on Scribd, here for download on Patreon.Soon after leaving his UN PGA post Jeremic signed a consulting agreement with CEFC and its affiliates. The only "cooling off period" with with Serbia; the UN was and is corruption. Antonio Guterres has refused to audit CEFC, whose Ho wrote that "A good friend of mine in Hong Kong is closely connection with the Central leaders of the Iranian revolutionary army... Iran has money in a bank in China which is under sanction. Iran wishes to purchase precious metal with this money. The precious metal is available through a bank in HK which cannot accept money from the Bank in China which holds the money but which is under sanction. The Iranian agent is looking for a Chinese company acting as a middle man in such transaction and will pay commission. (details to be presented orally)

The Iranian connection has strong urge to establish trading relation with us in oil and products, including the oil reserve initiative. We are asked to visit Iran again and bring with us concrete proposal for expedient discussion, negotiation and agreement. They are open to what we want. (details to be discussed in person)"
  So what did this UN accredited NGO want? Antonio Guterres has refused to audit to find out, nor to find out who else in the UN CEFC has bribed. Instead, he had roughed up and bannd Inner City Press which asked, now banned for 153 days with no end in sight. We'll have more on this. In the UN bribery prosecution by the US against Patrick Ho of China Energy Fund Committee, opening statements were given on November 26. US Prosecutor Paul A. Hayden said Patrick Ho used UN accredited NGO CEFC to cultivate Sam Kutesa while he was President of the General Assembly, and is caught on audio tape planning to bribe other high UN official(s) - and still no audit by UNSG Antonio Guterres. On November 27 after former UN President of the General Assembly Vuk Jeremic under subpoena testified about the role of Cheikh Gadio in CEFC reaching Chad's president Deby, Gadio himself took the stand at 4:35 pm. Post-testimony stand-up video here. Inner City Press' video has been picked up in Serbia, here, and though banned from the UN for the 153rd day by UNSG Antonio Guterres amid its questions , Inner City Press early on December 4 asked Guterres and his spokesmen "December 4-3: In US v Ho in the SDNY a wiretapped audio was played in which Patrick Ho of still accredited CEFC plotted with Sheri Yan who pleaded guilty about bribing PGA John Ashe (RIP). Given that there WAS an audit of some of the bribing of Ashe, why has SG Guterres done no audit of Patrick Ho, and payments to PGAs Jeremic and Kutesa? Also, it was described how PGA Kutesa went to Hong Kong and made CEFC's Ye Jianming a special consultant or adviser to the office of the UN PGA. Given what else has come out at the trial - offers of weapons by CEFC as well as bribery evidence - what did UN DSS observe on that trip and do afterward? What are the duties of UN DSS officers? Also an exhibit was shown of Patrick Ho's entries into the UN, showing that the UN keeps such information. This is a request for that information with regard not only to Ho but also Kutesa after he was PGA, Francis Lorenzo, Carlos Garcia and Cary Yan. On Nov 29 Cheikh Gadio admitted to filing false joint tax returns with this spouse, the UN's Resident Representative in Equatorial Guinea. Please immediately state whether she informed the UN of false tax returns, what rules apply to such legal violations, and her current status. Again, on Nov 28 there was more testimony about how UN accredited NGO China Energy Fund Committee offered Chad's Deby not only $2 million in cash in gift boxes, but also tanks and surveillance equipment. Beyond the other questions from Inner City Press about this UN scandal you have refused to answer, please explain what actions have been taken on the pitching of weapons and bribes inside the UN building, where Patrick Ho routinely met UN Secretariat officials, where Gadio made this pitch to Deby - at a “high level” meeting about CAR, no less and where UN Security witness much of this and apparently did nothing (but now bans Inner City Press from entering to report). Again, what is the duty of UN Secretary and Secretariat staff when they witness such wrongdoing?

December 4-4: Again and more specifically, given the UN NGO CEFC offered weapons to Chad (and Libya and South Sudan), what is the SG's comment and action on that and on that Uganda  defied a European Union arms embargo and purchased arms and ammunition from at least three EU members — Bulgaria, Romania and Slovakia — that were then transferred to South Sudan’s military and armed allies in Sudan before the United Nations Security Council imposed an arms embargo on Juba in July this year? Previous questions to Guterres on UN corruption and this case have gone unanswered.
