UN Censorship Redux as Florencia Soto Nino Takes Public Money To Cover Up Corruption

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

UN GATE, Jan 8 – The UN has been corrupted by Antonio Guterres as Secretary General. He arrived and immediately refused to answer, even pretended not to hear, questions by Inner City Press, about Cameroon and his own link to CEFC China Energy.

  Then he had his spokesman Stephane Dujarric get Inner City Press roughed up by UN Security Ronald E. Dobbins and others as it covered one of Guterres' speeches, here, and the UN Budget Committee, video here.  

Guterres' designated censor Melissa Fleming, who uses public money for a vanity podcast, has kept Inner City Press banned  even from UN briefings on WebEx / Teams / Zoom of the kind it asks questions on at the IMF and attends at WHO. The UN is corrupt.

 Dujarric promised on camera that Inner City Press' written questions would be answered, here - but then stopped, and blocked Inner City Press on Twitter, and on WhatsApp on which he claimed to take questions.

  Guterres' Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq deleted or leaves Inner City Press' questions as soon as he gets them on WhatsApp.  

 Associate Spokesperson Florencia Soto Nino Martinez has joined Dujarric in blocking Inner City Press on WhatsApp. But on Jan 8, 2024 she was the spokesperson in charge - she was again taking public money. Despite that, she neither answered nor even acknowledged receiving written Press questions about UN rapes, and Gaza and Somaliland.

No answers at all. So who is Florencia Soto Nino?  

  She has no problem trying to promote herself. On Medium she describes her bike ride from Brooklyn to the UN; she puts a photograph with Guterres on Tumblr.

On Twitter she calls herself a "Digital strategist & communicator at  @UN" -- while having less then 800 followers. 

  One of her few public quotes is "to take the necessary precautions to ensure no sensitive content is public,” U.N. Spokesperson Florencia Soto Nino-Martinez said."

How much has she taken in public funds during this time, while refusing to answer a single question? Watch this site.
