UN Guterres Covers Up Rapes in DRC and Haiti While Bragging of Sending 11 Tanzanian Home

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, June 9 – UN peacekeepers' rapes of those they are supposed to protect have escalated under current Secretary General Antonio Guterres.

His spokesman Stephane Dujarric refuses to answer Press questions about it, for example on June 8:

"June 8-1: Immediately provide all if-asked information on the new UN sex abused cases cynically data dumped June 7 at 12:02 pm, involving UN "peacekeepers" from South Africa, Malawi and Guatemala including child rape, what if anything has been done for the victims - and why while Ban Ki-moon provided Press with such info, each of you has refused, UN rape after UN rape."

   While leaving that unanswered, on June 9 Dujarric among other self-congratulatory press releases said "an update from our Peacekeeping Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) based in Bangui, which announced the decision by the Secretariat to repatriate a unit of 60 Tanzanian military personnel, who were deployed at a temporary operating base in the western part of the country. This follows serious allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse against these peacekeepers." 

But what about the many other charges, on which Dujarric and Melissa Fleming refuse to answer?

Those present at the June 9 UN noon briefing did not ask a single question about the UN rapes. Later one of Dujarric's state media cronies wrote up a puff piece to make the UN look good.

 But these are crimes, a systematic trafficking of sex offenders to failed states where they continue their abuse - and Guterres is at the top of the pyramid, complicit.
