UN Guterres Whispers On Fakhrizadeh Iran PR Letter Here As Soto Nino Steals Tax Money

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

UN GATE, Nov 27 – How corrupt is today's United Nations, under Antonio Guterres as Secretary General?

Well, beyond censorship for corruption, on November 27 Guterres' deputy spokesman Farhan Haq emailed the UN's list a canned statement on behalf of Guterres about Ethiopia.

 But Guterres' whispered comment on Iran and Israel was not similar sent out, but pubished on Reuters while thieving Associate Spokesperson Florencia Soto Nino Martinez who got paid, answered no Press questions. On Iran:

"We have noted the reports that an Iranian nuclear scientist has been assassinated near Tehran today. We urge restraint and the need to avoid any actions that could lead to an escalation of tensions in the region,” Guterres’ spokesman Farhan Haq said" - said to whom? Where? Today's UN is cowardly and corrupt.

Here now is Iran's letter to Guterres: "Excellency, I am writing to inform you that today, 27 November 2020 in Absard city of Tehran province, Mr. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, a prominent Iranian scientist, was assassinated in a terrorist attack. One of the latest services of Martyr Fakhrizadeh was his outstanding role in the development of the first indigenous COVID-19 Test Kit, which is a great contribution to our national efforts in curbing the COVID-19 pandemic at a time when Iran is under inhumane sanctions of the United States, strictly preventing our access to humanitarian goods including medicines and medical equipment. He was also supervising the development of a COVID-19 vaccine.   Over the current decade, several top Iranian scientists have been targeted and assassinated in terrorist attacks and our firm evidence clearly indicates that certain foreign quarters have been behind such assassinations. The cowardly assassination of Martyr Fakhrizadeh -- with serious indications of Israeli responsibility in it – is another desperate attempt to wreak havoc on our region as well as to disrupt Iran’s scientific and technological development. While during the past forty years, no amount of pressure and terrorist attacks were able to prevent us from achieving science and technology needed for our socio-economic development. Warning against any adventuristic measures by the United States and Israel against my country, particularly during the remaining period of the current administration of the United States in office, the Islamic Republic of Iran reserves its rights to take all necessary measures to defend its people and secure its interests. The Islamic Republic of Iran condemns, in the strongest possible terms, the criminal assassination of Martyr Fakhrizadeh, and expects the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Security Council to strongly condemn this inhumane terrorist act and take necessary measures against its perpetrators. I should be grateful if you would have the present letter circulated as a document of the Security Council. Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration. I should be grateful if you would have the present letter circulated as a document of the Security Council. Please accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration.   Majid Takht Ravanchi Ambassador Permanent Representative         H.E. Mr. Antonio Guterres Secretary-General."

While the UN belatedly admits and expresses concern that Tigrayan troops in the UN Peacekeeping Mision in South Sudan were suddenly "repatriated" -- the same thing the UN does for troops from Cameroon when they are charged with rape in the Central African Republic -- its Secretary General Antonio Guterres who refuses Press questions now on November 27 has a canned statement, not through vacationing Stephane Dujarric or the spokesperson on duty, Florencia Soto Nino, but deputy rape denier Farhan Haq:

"In response to questions on the situation in Ethiopia, the Spokesperson had the following to say: "The Secretary-General continues to closely follow developments in the Tigray region of Ethiopia as well as its regional impact. He welcomes the meeting today between Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and the African Union Special Envoys. The Secretary-General offers the full support of the United Nations to the African Union initiative and urges the parties to embrace this vital opportunity to peacefully resolve the conflict.        The Secretary-General underlines the need to ensure the protection of civilians, human rights and access for humanitarian assistance to the affected areas and appreciates the statement by Prime Minister Abiy today reaffirming the Federal Government’s utmost commitment to these obligations.      Farhan Haq, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General   New York, 27 November 2020." Guterres is a liar, and the spokespeople particularly Florencia Soto Nino Martinez, ostensibly on duty today but not answering even one of Inner City Press' questions unlike even WHO, is stealing public money. Watch this site.

"The Secretary-General is deeply concerned over the unfolding situation in the Tigray region of Ethiopia and its surrounding area. Amid reports of a potential military offensive into the regional capital of Mekelle, he urges the leaders of Ethiopia to do everything possible to protect civilians, uphold human rights and ensure humanitarian access for the provision of much-needed assistance. He also calls for the free and safe movement of people searching for safety and assistance, regardless of their ethnic identity, across both national and international borders. Stephane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General."

Dujarric has refused all Press questions about Ethiopia, and Cameroon, and Guterres' son Pedro Guimarães e Melo De Oliveira Guterres doing business in Africa while his father is UNSG.

Today's UN is corrupt and has not credibility.
