As UNSG Refuses Press Qs on His Sexual Abuse FP Insiders Virtue Signal But Cover Up #MeToo

By Matthew Russell Lee Patreon Periscope Song
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

UN Gate, August 9 – The United Nations under Antonio Guterres sinks ever lower into complicity with sexual abuse and trafficking, and lack of accountability. Now this from whistleblowers, about those who help cover up:

On July 30 Inner City Press while covering a UN Press Briefing Room propaganda session by Germany's Mission to the UN that it was banned from attending even virtually and even asking questions at tweeted, "This guy, who also tried to use UN Security against the press, is now praising Germany for being so good with him. No amount of hand-painting can make up for abusive sleaze - he once drunkenly hugged an Ambassador who demanded, Who *are* you?"

   Nearly immediately complaints rolled in, as this UN Correspondents Association official who is Ali Barada of France 24 and An-Nahar is widely known in the UN as engaged in sexual harassment and abuse. Several complainants, stating that Barada used his media company position to inappropriately touch them, said they want him identified and something done, that they still suffer PTSD.

   Two days after Inner City Press, banned 768 days from any entry into the UN including its Zoom room, reported on this, a UN insider chimed in publicly about the UN and gender: "Over time I have reduced my reading about the UN to two sources: @RichardGowan1 and @columlynch. This is why: rock solid analysis."

  Four days after this clanker, the two named men tried to distance themselves from it:

Richard Gowan @RichardGowan1 Replying to @AdamDayNYC: + @sarah_cliffe, @TCarayannis, @SherineT, @savita_pawnday, @AditiGorur, @wwwmac, @e_cousens, @kaysiebrown, @MeganMRoberts1, @sarahWPS, @KaavyaAsoka, @AAbdenur, @DeSachenka, @akd2003, @AkshayaSays, @joycebukuru, @renaticas, @AM_OMalley

and then

Colum Lynch [of Foreign Policy FP] @columlynch on reporting side, I'd add  @michellenichols   @whitney_hurst  ,  @SominiSengupta   @EdithLedererAP   @mbesheer   @PamelaFalk   @carrienooten    @pass_blue   @fillionsteph10 . sure I'm missing more

  Yes. And also missing UNCA Executive Board(s) #MeToo abuses, and Guterres' cover ups.

We'll have more on this - including if the media and UN who have known but not acted act now.

   UNCA despite a false policy has done nothing about the sexual harassment and worse of its own officials. Stories are also legion from the victims of a Middle East-based news / propaganda channel, whose in action is perhaps more expected that the collusion with Barada of Guerres, Melissa Fleming, Stephane Dujarric and the German mission. But this Gulf country, at least in the UN, makes many claims about its record on gender. We'll have more on this.

Ghislaine Maxwell used the United Nations, as reported by Inner City Press whose questions about it Guterres refuses.

  First Inner City Press showed that on the board of Maxwell's Terramar Project Inc. was Guterres chief Partnerships official, Amir Dossal, below.

  Now while UNEP official Lisa Svensson appears in the documents unsealed July 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York which Inner City Press covers since ousted from the UN by Guterres for is reporting, Inner City Press is continuing its exclusive 2018 reporting in Svensson's "Volvo Boating" and other scams at UNEP, here, where we published in full, on Scribd and Patreon, the agreement with Volvo Ocean Races signed by Erik Solheim, here, and the EUR 500,000 agreement signed by UNEP's Lisa Emilia Svensson, here and here.
