On UN Day Failing Guterres Invites Killers Like Lankan Rajapaksa As Hides Rapes Bans Press

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Video
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, Oct 23 -- Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General who rarely takes questions as he undermines what's left of the UN's credibility and even had the Press which asked him about his links to the convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy thrown out of the UN, rolled up in three large SUV vehicles to the publicly-funded mansion he usually lives alone in, just before the COVID-19 pandemic spread in March Video here, & YouTube and Facebook.

 Now on October 23 - UN Day - Guterres has bragged to staff that "our global survey to mark this anniversary confirmed that the people of the world continue to put their trust in us to prevent conflict, promote human rights, advance justice, protect our planet and uphold the equality of women and men." This as he daily covers up rapes by UN peacekeepers and bans the Press which asks, as he fails on Cameroon and the UN has on other conflicts like in Sri Lanka and as even the Mayor of New York won't meet with UN officials like the PGA.

  For UN Day, as simple one example, the UN invited a speech by Sri Lanka's Mahinda Rajapaksa, responsible for the Bloodbath on the Beach, which the UN supposedly learned from. The UN75 event is led by a sexual harasser on the 38th floor, as Guterres covers up for UN staffer Elkorany who drugged and rapes women in Iraq and refuses to answer why his own head of Partnerships Amir Dossal was on the board of sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell's Terramar.

  Back on October 19 in a session exposed by Inner City Press - after an invite by a disgusted Ambassador -- Guterres bragged that he will travel in two weeks to Massachusetts to meet his semi-estranged wife who lives in Portugal, a country from which quarantine would be required in New York. This is open evasion of quarantine rules - or not open, since it was said in a meeting several disgusted participants invited Inner City Press to observe.

  Inner City Press asked UN Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming: "Immediately confirm what SG Guterres said this morning, that he plans to travel to Massachusetts in two weeks and meet his wife coming in from Portugal and explain how his is not evasion of applicable quantantine rules." Hours later, no answer at all. (Contrary to, for example, IMF answers to Inner City Press here.)

And then asked Guterres online, here.

  Perhaps most significantly, Guterres in the meeting expressed open preference in the current US president election saying that if one side wins, "Net Zero Emissions" can be advance, and if the other (Trump) wins, Guterres and the UN will rely on bankers like JPMorgan Chase.

Guterres also spoke about social media platforms - not the censorship of investigative articles but the need to censors more, citing what he called "Social Dilemna" a show he says he is watching on Netflix. We will have more on this.

Normally, one could ask Guterres' spokespeople to explain. But they refuse to answer questions, even for clarification of Spokesman Stephane Dujarric reference to two, and not one, trips. They are corrupt.

 After his return and faux quarantine for ten days, including maskless men going in and out of his mansion, on August 19 Guterres' spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that US Secretary of State would be meeting directly with Guterres in the mansion on August 20 at 2 pm, see below.

   Meanwhile Guterres ordered UN headquarters staff to return to New York by September 15 - or two weeks before, so that they (unlike him) can quarantine. See video leaked to Inner City Press, here, including on that Guterres' contempt for the public is spreading.

  On August 20 Inner City Press, though also covering the indictment and arraignment of Steve Bannon in the SDNY courthouse it covers, rushed uptown to see if this blatant violation of quarantine by Guterres would take place. It did: streaming Periscope video here; now on YouTube here. There were many UN staff and security, a waste of public money occasioned only by Guterres' selfishness and arrogance.
