UN Corruption in Somalia Detailed by Staff Whistleblower But Guterres Does Nothing

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, April 13 – How corrupt is today's UN? Its staff in places like Somalia write in to Secretary General Antonio Guterres and his officials about misdeeds in their Missions, and nothing happens. Then they write to Inner City Press, which Guterres and Melissa Fleming have banned from entering the UN to ask questions. Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric refuses to answer written questions, so we publish:

"We are writing to report the daily frauds and misuse of power of Ms. Qurat Ul Ain Sadozai, newly appointed Director of UNSOS and UNSOM D2 in Somalia, following a short transition period as D1, Chief Supply Chain Management, in the same mission, UNSOS, without any certification, professional competence and minimum knowledge on the subject...

In the new position as Director she is totally useless and continues her practice with the Somali Institutions. Her arrogant and abusive behavior is so blatant and obvious that she has been proud to deny Staff to attend mosque prayer on Fridays and others in Nairobi to go to Church on Sunday, calling them into meetings and bullying them. She is such a good Muslim that she used to go and drink at his place. She used Ugandan Colleague Juliet Kabuleeta who falsely reported against Mr. Harjit for sexual harassment. In exchange, Ms. Kabuleeta was sent on assignment to Mali  and from there was promoted as Chief Rations Officer back in UNSOS... Particularly now when she has to deal with the" Italian job"… 

Her protegees who have been helping her with the supply chain activities: Mr. Favio Mevoli is on the way to be D1, Chief Supply Chain Management, former post of Ms. Qurat and to comply with the well-established tradition that D1 are allowed to recruit their wives or mistresses, the same as done by Mr. Mevoli with his wife Letitia Carriero Property Management FS6. Obviously, there is no conflict of interest... this is the style of Ms. Qurat.  Very shady.

 It has been a long time that she has been acting like this and nobody seems to care about the fact that her husband is the Chief of Intelligence in the Pakistan Army.  Normally, it is a matter that should have been carefully evaluated in the UN but instead not.  Most probably because he is  old  and not so effective as an Intelligence Officer considering that his wife has an intimate relationship with Mr. Juan Palafox from Spain, Chief Engineering, newly promoted to D1 thanks to his performance and integration as she started using gowns and this should be rewarded.

 Previously Ms. Qurat entered into the UN thanks to a Somali Representative in NY to whom she had a relationship.  Qurat's father also has  connections with Somali political parties and she knows all government people.     Thanks to her family insights, she used to work with an NGO and then she came through a very strange kidnapping story. We all think it was a staged kidnapping and she was photographed smiling. Very strange….   

  Considering that our Mission will close within a year, and most of us will lose our jobs, we are scared that instead Ms. Qurat and her companions and boyfriend will continue the same abuses somewhere else.  We wonder if Mr. Khare . Ms. Di Carlo and Mr. Lacroix  will take actions as Somalia is another UN Mission run by bad people and incompetent.    We will have more on this - banned as we are from even entering the UN - watch this site.
