UN Women Staff Karkara Sent Porn As Inner City Press 1st Reported Guterres Covers Up

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

UN GATE, Nov 28 – How corrupt is today's United Nations? Even when a proceeding about the growing trend of sexual harassment under Sec-Gen Antonio Guterres is supposed to be public, when the Press comes to cover it, it is denied access. Video here.

   From November 3 to November 6 Inner City Press each day asked Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming to explain this, and to state what happened in and was done about the case, below. No answers.

 On November 6, 2020 Inner City Press reported here on another UN Dispute Tribunal case, in which Karkara (who Inner City Press first  covered in 2018, here), "a former Senior Advisor at the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (“UN Women”) in New York, at the P-5 level, contests the decision to dismiss him for serious misconduct. UN Women found that the Applicant (a) sexually harassed, exploited and abused two non-UN personnel; (b) committed harassment and abuse of authority against an intern with the United Nations; and (c) misused the United Nations Information Communication and Technology (“ICT”) resources to obtain and distribute pornography to and from his UN Women email account. 2. The Applicant submits that the facts on which the disciplinary measure was based are not established by clear and convincing evidence. The Applicant argues that the victims’ testimonies are not credible and that their allegations were fabricated with the assistance of several individuals who had serious disputes with him. The Applicant also submits that the investigation was biased and ignored exculpatory evidence and several witnesses breached the confidentiality requirement by speaking to the media, thereby undermining the integrity of the investigation. 3. The Respondent submits that based on the credible oral testimony of victims, which are further corroborated by other witnesses’ testimony and text messages and the Global Positioning System (“GPS”) records, the facts on which the disciplinary measure was based are established by clear and convincing evidence. 4. A hearing was held before the Tribunal on 20-22 July 2020 at which nine witnesses and the Applicant gave testimony. 5. For the reasons below, the Tribunal finds that the facts are established by clear and convincing evidence, that they amount to serious misconduct, and that the imposed sanction was proportionate to the offense."

  Dujarric and Melissa Fleming never answered Inner City Press' written questions to them about Karkara, covering up his abuse.

Still the Guardian's Hannah Summers without credit has now weeks later reported "The agency previously declined to name the former employee, but details of the allegations against him were published in a judgment this month after Karkara took his case to the UN dispute tribunal... The UN was contacted for a response." And? The Guardian should write more.

Guterres' UN is corrupt and he is covering it up with censorship. Sources who contacted Inner City Press about what they call expanding sleaze in the UN blamed its spread on "dirty old man" SG Guterres, as one called him. Inner City Press has put the decision online on its DocumentCloud, here. Is this acceptable? Why no answer? Why the cover up?

 On November 3 Inner City Press arrived online to cover a sexual harassment proceeding in the UN Dispute Tribunal. But despite the promise of openness, it was blocked. Still, from exhibits, this live tweeted thread:

This UN staff member Mr. Andrea Padula allegedly  "a. “grabbed [Ms. VC’s] face, leaned forward and attempted to kiss her”; b. “when [Ms. VC] resisted [him] kissing her, [he] forced [Ms. VC’s] down and kissed her c. “grabbed [Ms. MV], held her closely, and attempted to kiss her”

 Those on this UN cover-up call, blocking the Press from an ostensibly public UN sexual harassment hearing, include Morten Michelsen, Omar Josef Shehabi, but ultimately the rape-cover-up-man in chief,  @AntonioGuterres . He has corrupted the entire Organization

 In the supposedly public UN "legal" proceeding that Inner City Press was just denied access to, here is an exhibit being presented - a UN cubicle, with a Patricia Dann sign on it and an apparently inflatable kangaroo. More exhibits from Big Tony Gutters' Animal House UN, presented in ostensibly public legal proceeding that Inner City Press was blocked from - note "Dance floor" - including the UN - and party boys / dirty old men. 

 This one of  @AntonioGuterres ' party boys is named Mr. Andrea Padula (in Iraq, Guterres' Karim Elkorany went further, into drugging and raping a UN contractors) - but here, note the involvement of "Mariuska of Accenture."

Update - the United Nations under  @AntonioGuterres  is spending the public's money to hold sexual harassment dances (and fly rapists like Elkorany in and out of Iraq) - but when the Media tries to cover a public proceeding, access denied. #ImpeachGuterres 202 views 0:00 / 0:27

Turns out this  @AntonioGuterres  party boy Padula "was doing the same thing with another UN staff, her name was Verouschka....  he tried to grab her" - note that the three UNTSO #sexploiters are *still* being paid by the public, despite Guterres' lies
