Amid UN Sex Harassment Scandals No Answer on Colombia Leak on UN Carlos Ruiz Massieu

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 30 – In the UN system run by Antonio Guterres, high ranking officials can get away with physical sexual abuse - witness the "hands down the pants" audio Inner City Press exclusively first published here - and with inappropriate sexual relationships with subordinates.

   Inner City Press received many such complaints. On the morning of June 30, Inner City Press asked Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming to answer, on deadline, this, about this:

"Dear Matthew,   I work in the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia and would like to give an account of another cover-up of abuse by a senior UN official in the UN. Mr. Carlos Ruiz Massieu, Special Representative of the Secretary General in the mission has been having an affair with Ms. Daniela Vargas, a local staff member, since at least 2020.

After anonymous reporting in early 2022 to the Office of Internal Oversight Services, he rushed to New York to “voluntarily” declare the affair. What a coincidence!

After that, Ms. Vargas got a job in the Executive Office of the Secretary General. A P-3 or P-4 would have been investigated for an affair with a subordinate, but senior officials get away with anything.    If you decide to report it, I would appreciate if you do not show the email address." 

 Done. Dujarric did not answer in writing, nor at the subsequent noon briefing he, Guterres and Fleming ban Inner City Press from, while not answering this pro bono letter from a law firm.  Watch this site.
