UN Sexual Abuse By Guterres Spreads to ICAO WIPO and UNOPS Amid Ban on Press Asking

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, June 18 –    The UN run by Antonio Guterres, who daily covers up child rapes by UN peacekeepers by withholding information that even his predecessor Ban Ki-moon used to give upon Press request, is increasingly characterized by sexual harassment and abuse.

Here is part of yet another sample account submitted to Inner City Press since the state media and retirees Guterres and Melissa Fleming let in collude with these two, and Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric, Farhan Haq and Eri Kaneko refuse to answer any even written questions from Inner City Press which they have been 716 days and counting:

"Dear Matthew,   I hope this letter finds you well.   I have evidence of sexual harassment and assault committed by senior officer of the World Intellectual Property Organization of the United Nations (a former Acting Director of Internal Oversight Services (IOD)) and collusion among WIPO, and several other UN agencies (ICAo and UNOPS) and the Member States to cover it up.  

I have evidence of WIPO launching investigation against the victim with advice and involvement of the perpetrator (which WIPO falsely denies). The Head of WIPO Investigation Section was also taking part in supporting the perpetrator to hunt the victim and was actively engaged in launching investigation against the victim. 

I have evidence of Axis Helvetia (external investigation company) taking part in a corrupted scheme of WIPO administration by:  - leading1st  retaliatory investigation against the victim of sexual harassment with numerous violations of due process rights and making ridiculous references to non existing staff of WIPO; - filing a complaint against the victim (after the 1st investigation was completed) to launch and leading 2nd retaliatory investigation against the victim (conducted with numerous violations and intentional reputational damage of  the victim) - Was hired by the Chairs of GA (Vietnamese Ambassador) and CoCo (Iranian Ambassador) to" investigate" an alleged retaliation the Director General against Mr. Wei Lei (a whistle-blower at WIPO) and definitely they found no evidence of retaliation;  - WIPO Director  General illegally dismissing harassment complaint against Avis Helvetia.    I have evidence of the investigator of sexual harassment intentionally distorting the evidence  to dismiss allegations of sexual harassment, but there was finding of harassment (and other finding, e.g.  the perpetrators being illegally involved in investigation against the victim). WIPO Director General dismisses all allegations and findings against the perpetrator.  

The UN Secretary General is well aware of the case and ignored the requests of the victim to step in and ensure impartial investigation. [Guterres is a corrupt censor - and worse.]

The Member State also never reacted  on numerous requests from WIPO staff and the victim to investigate systematic violations of human rights in WIPO.   I have an evidence of WIPO’s Chair of General Assembly (Ambassador of Vietnam) neglecting his duty and protecting WIPO Director General against any investigations. In return, her was offered a fixed term job of Director in April 2020.  

I have evidence of WIPO's current Chair of Coordination Committee (French Ambassador) breaching his duty of care and sharing confidential information sent by the whistle-blower  with the WIPO Legal Counsel (he was also a subject to institutional harassment allegations). I also have evidence of current Charis of GA (Moroccan Ambassador) and CoCo (French Ambassador) illegally  dismissing institutional harassment complaint filed by the victim.  

I have evidence of WIPO and UNOPS ethics  officers falsely accusing the victim of filing the sexual harassment complaint in bad faith. I have evidence of WIPO Administration threatening financial independence and security of the victim through stopping to pay her salary, falsely accusing her of abuse of the system *by pursuing her case legally) and requesting WIPO internal Appeal Board and ILO Tribunal to impose financial sanctions upon the victim."
