Reclusive UNSG Guterres 9 Days Late on Boksburg SA Blast As Skipped Budget Spat He Banned Press From

By Matthew Russell Lee, Audio

UNITED NATIONS, Jan 2, 2023 – Nine full days after a railroad explosion in Boksburg, South Africa on Christmas Eve, on January 2 UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres issued a canned and much belated statement of concern: "Secretary-General @antonioguterres is deeply saddened by the death of dozens of civilians from the devastating gas tanker explosion in Boksburg, #SouthAfrica. He expresses his condolences to the families of those who lost their lives."

  Why nine days later? Guterres was absent from the UN when on December 30 the General Assembly belated adopted a more than $3 billion annual budget, some of which Guterres will devoting to covering up rapes by his UN Peacekeepers. And to censorship:

The UN maintains a secret list of people banned from entering its premises. Even the Security officers who enforce the ban are not told the reason why a person is on the list: whether it was for actual violence, or writing articles questioning the Secretary General Antonio Guterres' misuse of public funds, for example. One told Inner City Press the secret list includes "demonstrators" and "political activists," audio here.

In 2021, Guetrres and his head of Media Accreditation Melissa Fleming refused to answer a polite letter from pro bono law firm Quinn Emanuel. On December 2, 2022 I was banned from PGA Csaba Korosi's "Civil Society Town Hall" - his spokesperson Paulina Kubiak emerged to say an appeal to DSS was possible. It was filed on December 5 - but not even any confirmation of receipt. The UN has become North Korea under Guterres, and the UN press corpse / UN Censorship Alliance (UNCA) is complicit.

  A UN Security officer told me, No one is going to help you. You are on the list. I asked him, who else is on the list? He mentioned “demonstrators” and "political activists" and others. Audio here.

  Tellingly, NOT on Guterres' banned list are those who pleaded guilty to UN bribery for example in the Ng Lap Seng - John Ashe case. They are not banned by Guterres, UNlike the journalist who most closely covered those convictions, and the current UN bribery case of Patrick Ho and the China Energy Fund Committee. Guterres is fine with bribery, but bans those who investigate and expose it.
