UN Daniela Bas Hired Relatives & Moonlighted as Life Coach Staff Tell Banned Inner City Press

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, April 28 – In the UN of Antonio Guterres, there is scandal after scandal, each one covered up and/or ignored by the state media and scribes they let in, while banning the Press.

From the e-mail bag this week, while Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming refused all of Inner City Press' questions:

Dear Matthew Russell Lee: Tell the Daniela Bas story. This director of social affairs got fired from DESA for corruption and is running a huge consultancy firm now. The UN didn't bother to explain to anyone why she was fired.

We know very little. Over the weekend we were told that she was not coming in again (but she was in the office on Friday) and that John Wilmoth will be the acting director.

She was known to be very corrupt. She appointed her brother and her sister in law's company to do diversity training at the UN. She was accused of racism. She tried to get in people that were her friends and family and not qualified. She made statements about no-one being able to fire her because she is in a wheelchair.

In the end, she was apparently fired because she took paid contracts, in addition to her job, to do life coaching through an NGO.  She now runs a company where she prides herself on her history with the UN. Proudly announcing that she 'was a senior director' at DESA.

Despite the fact that she should have left with her tail between her legs, she walks proud and tall. The UN has not said a word to any of the staff. Nothing. Zilch. Her staff were left in the dark, stunned when she left.  Not sure whether you're going to get any more information but many, many, many of us are waiting to see what you print. Good luck."

  Well, the UN despite Dujarric's on camera promise to answer Inner City Press' written questions doesn't. Daneila Bas who smiled answering Inner City Press' questions until it was thrown out did nothing after. But we continue to report. Watch this site.
