In UNGA Circus of Censorship Guterres Meets Petro Amid UN Sex Scandal in Colombia

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

UN GATE, Sept 18 – Just before the UN's hyped and often decadent General Assembly week, Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Sunday, September 18 met with "Gustavo Petro Urrego, President of Colombia and discussed the Government’s plans to deepen and expand peace, to protect vulnerable communities from violence, to fight inequality, to foster sustainable development, and to address the drug issue in a holistic manner. The Secretary-General reaffirmed the readiness of the United Nations to strongly support Colombia’s efforts across these priority areas."

This amid a sex scandal in UN Colombia, exposed by banned Inner City Press:

"still unanswered questions: "Dear Matthew,   I work in the United Nations Verification Mission in Colombia and would like to give an account of another cover-up of abuse by a senior UN official in the UN. Mr. Carlos Ruiz Massieu, Special Representative of the Secretary General in the mission has been having an affair with Ms. Daniela Vargas, a local staff member, since at least 2020.

After anonymous reporting in early 2022 to the Office of Internal Oversight Services, he rushed to New York to “voluntarily” declare the affair. What a coincidence!

After that, Ms. Vargas got a job in the Executive Office of the Secretary General. A P-3 or P-4 would have been investigated for an affair with a subordinate, but senior officials get away with anything.    If you decide to report it, I would appreciate if you do not show the email address." 

 Done. Dujarric did not answer in writing, nor at the subsequent noon briefing he, Guterres and Fleming ban Inner City Press from, while not answering this pro bono letter from a law firm.

Meanwhile Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming gripped and grinned, for money, with the spokesman of the Qatar ministry of foreign affairs Dr Majed Mohamed Hassan Abdullah al-Ansari and took selfies. Anything for a buck.
