Ecuador Takes Over UNSC For December Short Presser No Answers on El Pollo Press Banned

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, Dec 1 – Ecuador took the UN Security Council presidency on December 1, 2023 - while Inner City Press is still banned from the UN, despite its June 19 application.

  New president Daniel Noboa, described as a banana heir, appointed as his ambassador José de la Gasca, described as an expert in criminal law. It could come in handy at the UN, where PGA John Ashe was indicted, and convicted Ghislaine Maxwell held a press conference and more. But under de la Gasca, no answers to the Press so far.

On November 29, Inner City Press wrote to the Ecuadorian Mission: This is a timely request that you allow Inner City Press to enter and cover, and/or provide the WebEx  pass code(s) to access Ecuador's UNSC Presidency press briefing by your Ambassador on December 1, 2023.

I have questions to ask on what you will do this month about Gaza and the coups in Gabon and Niger and the conflicts in Sudan, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Cameroon, Yemen and Libya, and the revelations of El Pollo now in SDNY - and on ongoing cases of sexual abuse and exploitation by UN peacekeepers on many of which Inner City Press first reported

Please note that Inner City Press and I participate in the WebEx briefings of, for example, the IMF: March 31, 2022 and since with new IMF spokesperson Sept 28, 2023

Two days later, no answer from the Ecuador mission. A press conference barely 20 minutes long, half speech, could easily has allowed Inner City Press' questions but didn't. Watch this site.

 Inner City Press on June 19 applied to the UN for access, as it gives 100s, to cover the UNGA week. Inner City Press has a NYC Press Pass and writes about the UN. From Ecuador and its UN Mission, nothing.
