UN Police Yenigun & Ata Abuses Here Covered Up by LaCroix & SG Guterres Who Bans Press

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

UN GATE, April 17 – How corrupt is today's UN under Antonio Guterres?

  Well, its own staff are so afraid of retaliation by Guterres that their only outlet, they say, is to Inner City Press which itself has been banned from the UN by Guterres, with no due process and December 3, 2022 appeal ignored.

But we continue.  February's story, follow up below:

"Dear Matthew Russsell Lee / Inner City Press:  We are from the Police Division of the United Nations. We come to you as our last resort.

 Since March 2022, the Investigations Division of the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) has opened an investigation against Mr. Ata Yenigun, Chief of the Selection and Recruitment Section of the UN Police Division, Office of Rule of Law and Security Institutions (OROLSI), Department of Peace Operations (DPO).

The investigation concerned numerous reported incidents of serious discrimination, abuses of authority, cases of harassment and for creating an hostile environment to work. 

Mr. Yenigun bullies us in his own team but not only. He does the same to the entire staff of the Police Division. And, he has done so for many years. He has always been protected. He was particularly protected to not say that he was even empowered by the former Police Adviser Mr. Luis Carrilho during his entire time as Police Adviser with the support of ASG Zouev. year later nothing has been done and Mr. Yenigun continues to terrorize the staff of the Police Division. Mr. Yenigun has a strong bias against women and other minorities.

  it is not the first time DPO (USG Lacroix is also fully aware) and OROLSI let managers bullying their staff. In the past the Chief of UNMAS was able to do the same for years also…   [Inner City Press reported on that, before being roughed up and thrown out of the UN by Guterres' UN Security, which now ignored the written appeal directed by UN PGA Spokesperson Paulina Kubiak).

we are seriously afraid of retaliations.   Please help us by publishing our story.   

Done. This on April 17, this:

Hi, Matthew-  I read this article and can confirm everything in it. I’ve got good internal sources at UNPOL.    You might also want to look into the corruption of Mr. ATA, how he favorites certain countries, and how Turkish police officers often end up in key positions.    Further you might want to look into the process of the new Police Adviser. A man who was among the least qualified candidates (with references to his previous duty station in SPC Brindisi, according to sources very close to Ms. Ann Mari Orler. He was Ata’s choice in a weird process where PD (read: Ata) is responsible for screening (read: hiring) his new boss. And he always pick a candidate he don’t need to fear.    The hiring process made an unusual jump, when it went from UN PD and straight to USG, without clearance from ASG Zoev’s office.    It can also be mentioned that the Police Advisor is rarely wearing uniform, as he is not entitled to do it after he was suspended from the Pakistan police due to allegations of Human Rights violations. This is information well known to Mr. Ata.    At last you might want to look into his ridiculous travel expenses and how he is tricking with the DSA, how he is representing Police Division absolutely everywhere all year round. It is well known in PD SRS that he significantly increased his travels after one of his daughters changed to a private school."

We are asking Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming.
