UN Guterres Empty Vow on Guinea Vote Like Cameroon As Bans Inner City Press 844th Day

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

UN GATE, Oct 23 – Antonio Guterres, the UN Secretary General who rarely takes questions and even had the Press which asked him about the mass killings in Cameroon thrown out of the UN, rolled up in three large SUV vehicles to the publicly-funded mansion he usually lives alone in, just before the COVID-19 pandemic spread in March Video here, & YouTube and Facebook.

On October 16, among with questions on Guterres' cover up of his links to UN bribery firm CEFC China Energy, Inner City Press asked him and Amina J. Mohammed, Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming, "On Guinea, in advance of the election what are the comments and actions if any of SG Guterres on that Tension is rising in Guinea, following the killing of senior army officer Col Mamady Condé.  It comes just two days before a presidential election in which President Alpha Condé is running for a controversial third term.  Armed men shot Col Condé dead in the early hours of Friday at a military camp in Kindia, 130km (80 miles) north-east of the capital, Conakry.  Residents of the nearby neighbourhood heard gunshots at 02:00 local time and heavy shooting continued for five hours.  There were reports of an attempted mutiny and that soldiers had seized weapons to free some of their colleagues who had been detained.  The minister of defence issued a statement saying that Col Condé had been killed. Separately, does the SG join the call for the Internet to NOT be cut off or slowed, noting wo disruptions of the internet and social media in Guinea this year, on March 21 and 22, during a constitutional referendum that granted President Alpha Condé the ability to run for a third term."

A week later, no answer. Just a Mad-Libs canned statement that could apply to any country. Today's UN is a corrupt sinkhole of public funds. #DefundTheUN

  Meanwhile this empty statement from Guterres on October 23 via his UNmasked spokesman Dujarric: "The Secretary-General takes note of the announcement of the provisional results of the presidential election in Guinea by the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI). He reiterates his call to all actors to resolve electoral disputes through established legal mechanisms and to refrain from violence.      The Secretary-General strongly condemns the violence that occurred following the 18 October presidential election. He calls in particular on the President of the Republic of Guinea and the leader of the opposition to prevail on their supporters to immediately end the violence and engage in meaningful dialogue to find a peaceful solution to the post-electoral crisis.        The Secretary-General also urges opinion leaders and the media to desist from inflammatory rhetoric and divisive appeals based on ethnicity.       The United Nations stands ready to support a dialogue process towards a rapid and peaceful resolution of the crisis.      Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General   New York, 24 October 2020." Support, like for Paul Biya in Cameroon.

Support for another third term octogenarian from Antonio Guterres. Corrupt.

 Guterres' own guards rough up and ban the Press, here.

  On September 12, still-banned Inner City Press went to check out the UN and Belarus protest across from it on 43rd Street, where it covered the UN after Guterres had it roughed up. Sept 12 Periscope here. Guterres sides with dictators - and his Melissa Fleming has not acted on Inner City Press' application a full week previous for access to briefing to cover UNGA Week 2020. We'll have more on this.

 As Inner City Press reported on August 4 when Haq and Melissa Fleming had it removed before it could ask a question on Guterres' lame "policy brief" on COVID-19 and education, Guterres' embargoed video was filmed July 23. This shows guilty knowledge.

  In March at public expense his wife Catarina Vaz Pinto was with him, just as she was in September 2019 in expensive seats at the US Open tennis tournament as Guterres - and she? - censored the Press.

   Catarina Vaz Pinto is no longer only Lisbon's Minister of Culture - she is now, somewhat absurdly, the "Minister of International Relations" of the city. In that role she was in Madrid, at an event making light of the spread of Coronavirus which Guterres is helping spread, while UN Spokesperson Stephan Dujarric and Melissa Fleming refuse all Inner City Press questions.
