Amid UN Sex Scandal In Colombia Canned Statement by MIA Guterres Hiring of Girlfriend

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC-Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 1 – In the UN system run by Antonio Guterres, high ranking officials can get away with physical sexual abuse - witness the "hands down the pants" audio Inner City Press exclusively first published here - and with inappropriate sexual relationships with subordinates.

   Inner City Press received many such complaints. On the morning of June 30, 2022 Inner City Press asked Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming to answer, on deadline, a question regarding the head of the UN's Colombia mission, below. They did not answer, and still have not, seven plus weeks later.

And so on August 24, we published these:

Dear Mathew,  I read with interest your articles on the corruption of UNVMC and the actors involved.  Please note that the UNVMC Chief Human Resources, Mar Brusola is not new to this type of non-transparent recruitment. It is a well-known secret that she was recruited into UNGSC because of her propensity for corruption and to facilitate the corrupt demands of her high-ranking benefactors.  Rumour has it that Mr Herbert Pecheck, D1 Chief Supply Chain Management requested her to be in Brindisi for this special skill of hers. Shortly after, Mr Pecheck got his wife Shabnam Huq-Pechek a cushy P3 job in Brindisi. What do you expect she will do for the UNVMC, SRSG or herself? Everything, more so as nobody is monitoring the situation or being vigilant about it. She is a rotten fish from head to toe, corrupt and morally despicable. She can request a PSJO, and somebody, highly blessed, will get clearance and the job, as has happened for many others, mostly her friends. All that’s needed is just a request from FPD or DOS and the game is over.   On this last topic, you might be interested to know that another DOS famous clearance and recruitment maker was involved in the embarking of the wives of Mr Pechek and Mr Anton Antchev (Ms Katerina Maximova P4 in UNMIK). Guess who? Ms Sandi Arnold, UNMIK CMS currently suspended. By coincidence, Ms. Arnold was always involved in all these activities on behalf of her high ranking supporters. Hopefully, somebody will put an end to this dirty, filthy game. We are all disgusted and have no more trust to work with such morally despicable and corrupt people, with no ethics.   If anything Ms Mar Brusola, now Chief HR in Colombia, has home. Her boyfriend (most likely recruited through similar connections) is the Head of Conduct and Discipline in UNVMC. A can of worms. I believe many other Colleagues can witness the above and can add more to this catalogue of disgusting stories of corruption.

  That is today's UN - that as canned statements like this one, from Guterres not seen in weeks, absent from the UN budget fiasco, now this: "The Secretary-General welcomes the announcement by the President of Colombia of the six-month ceasefire with armed groups, a development that brings renewed hope for comprehensive peace to the Colombian people as the New Year dawns. The Secretary-General trusts that adherence to these commitments will reduce violence and the suffering of conflict-affected communities, while helping to build confidence in ongoing dialogues.        The Secretary-General reaffirms the support of the United Nations to Colombia's efforts to achieve full and lasting peace.      Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General    New York, 1 January 2023." Canned lies, no answers.

Watch this site.

  Still no answer by Melissa Fleming (or UNCA) to this.

The earlier, 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.  Watch this site.
