CEFC China Energy Bribery in UN Omitted By NYT As SG Guterres Bans Press To Cover Up

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

UN GATE, SDNY COURT, Oct 26 – The Chinese government energy and bribery firm CEFC China Energy is in the news these days, as having given a $1 million diamond and offered a vice chairmanship to Hunter Biden. 

  But Inner City Press covered the firm well before that, when it was caught and convicted paying bribes in the UN, offering to current UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres through the Gulbenkian Foundation, and wiring $500,000 to UN President of the General Assembly Sam Kutesa. Video Q&A with UN, here.

  Now with Inner City Press banned from any entry of the UN or its briefings by Guterres, still trying to cover up his links to CEFC China Energy which he omitted from his financial "disclosure" forms, the New York Times of October 25 has written a white wash article.

  While most intended to clear Joe Biden, tellingly it does not mention that CEFC China Energy bribed inside the United Nations, much less its link to Antonio Guterres which he has roughed up and banned the Press to try to conceal.

 The NYT reports that "CEFC focused on trading oil futures and securing the rights to overseas oil fields in strife-torn places like Chad, South Sudan and Iraq" - no mention of Uganda, proven in SDNY court, perhaps because the Uganda bribee, Sam Kutesa, was President of the UN General Assembly.

  At the very end of the article the NYT slips in that CEFC "was declared bankrupt in March of this year after it was named in a criminal investigation by the United States Justice Department. Named and CONVICTED was Patrick Ho, CEFC's UN representative. And that was well before this year's formal bankruptcy - Ho called the Bidens when he was arrested. We'll have more on this.

And, on October 17, we had more to exclusively report, since picked up by other media.   

Even the UN's own Office of Internal Oversight Services has now reported: "An investigation revealed that a staff member at the Office of the 69th President of the General Assembly had been involved in a range of activities that included diversion of funds, misuse of assets and self-dealing in the discharge of duties. The staff member had used their position to advance their personal interests and those of third parties, received undeclared gifts, solicited funds that were diverted to unofficial accounts and engaged in unauthorized outside activities. OIOS transmitted its findings to the Office of Human Resources for appropriate action and to the Office of Legal Affairs for possible referral to national authorities." 

OIOS on Kutesa

  The President of the General Assembly referred to by number instead of name is undeniably Sam Kutesa. The finding was conveniently withheld under after Kutesa left the US, so unlike CEFC China Energy briber Patrick Ho, he has not been arrested - yet?  

 The phrase "used their position to advance their personal interests and those of third parties" - the finger much point to China, as it must for Hunter Biden.

And censorship, while being attempted by social media platforms and Guterres' censors Melissa Fleming and Stephane Dujarric, cannot be allowed to work. Watch this site.
