In Corrupt UN of Guterres ICSC Djacta Lets Cronies Stay On with Fake Degree now De Beer

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE,June 13 –   How corrupt is today's UN system under Antonio Guterres? The UN General Assembly raised the mandatory age of retirement in the UN to 65 years . The ICSC regularly monitors the implementation of the mandatory age of retirement in the organizations of the UN common system and report to the General Assembly. However, it is now clear that the ICSC staff members closed to the ICSC Chair, Mr. c, are treated differently than other retiring UN staff, whistleblowers tell Inner City Press.

The ICSC Chair, Mr. Larbi Djacta has been repeatedly extending his favorites beyond the mandatory retirement age and delaying years to replace them with new  staff with the necessary credentials, including advance degrees (Djacta's favorite senior staff lack any advanced degrees or credentials, then same as him). Some of those vacancies for these posts were announced early last year, but so far, no actions have been taken to select the candidates who applied for these posts numerous times due to reannouncements of those vacancies as a delay tactic. 

[Last year Inner City Press exclusively reported: On January 26, 2022 contacted by UN whistleblowers, Inner City Press asked Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming questions including "On USG Larbi Djacta, ICSC chair, the resume states Masters Degree St John's University 1991-93. Please immediately state a Masters Degree IN WHAT."    23 months later, no answer at all. This is fraud.

Here is the relevant information on one of those positions - Chief of Human Resources Policies at D-1 level in the ICSC

This is the case with Ms. Henrietta De Beer! Once again, Mr. Larbi Djacta has decided to extend her contract WELL BEYOND her mandatory retirement age of 65 years (see attached). The vacancy for the post has been announced two or three times over the last two years. Unfortunately, there was no action or news about that recruitment. So, the pertinent question that should be asked here for proper checks and balance is why Ms. De Beer cannot be replaced with a new talent! This kind of abuse of authority is one of the major hurdles in the UN towards rejuvenating the workforce.

Opportunities for new and younger talent pipelines in the UN organizations are blocked at the top because of not letting go of the old and out-of-date talent in the UN organizations by the heads of organizations/entities just for their personal benefits or quid pro quo! Watch this site
