False Degree Claim By UN Kate Gilmore Quietly Disappears in Geneva But Guterres Keeps It Up

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC The Times (UK) Honduras - The Source 

UN GATE / SDNY, Nov 26 –  What does the United Nations of Antonio Guterres do when it is exposed for having paid a high ranking official over $2 million in public funds without having checked the official's falsified educational qualifications?

Nothing. Or, quietly change one online presentation, while leaving Guterres' unchanged.

   Inner City Press has long reported on Kate Gilmore at the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights Michele Bachelet, including on her retaliation against whistleblowers with whom Inner City Press was worked on such stories as the UN given the name of dissidents to China, one of whom was killed.

   But among Ms. Gilmore's and the UN's frauds was her claim to have earned post-graduate degrees to justify her position and salary. A version of her resume on OHCHR's website which Inner City Press saved said "Ms. Gilmore holds a bachelor of arts degree from the University of New England and post graduate degrees in Social Work from the University of Melbourne and Community Development from RMIT." Here.   

  After inquiries, a new version was put online by Bachelet's OHCHR without explanation or comment or repurcussions much less disgorgement of improperly taken public funds, now saying "Ms. Gilmore holds a bachelor of arts degree from the University of New England and a Bachelor's degree in Social Work from the University of Melbourne and has pursued post-graduate studies in social work and community development in Australia." Here.  

There is no post-graduate degree from University of Melbourne, and initially claimed RMIT is not mentioned anymore.

   But at Antonio Guterres' UN, where Guterres himself omitted from his public financial disclosure covering 2016 the money he took from Lisbon based Gulbenkian Foundation which tried during his tenure to sell its oil company Partex to convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy, nothing has changed.

   Today on 26 November 2019, the 511th day that Guterres has kept Inner City Press banned from entering the UN for asking such questions, a form of censorship on which Bachelet has done nothing, his still online biography here says of Ms. Gilmore that "She is the holder of a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of New England and a post-graduate degree in social work from the University of Melbourne."   That was and is a lie: there is no post-graduate degree of any kind from Univerisity of Melbourne. Now what? Inner City Press is asking Guterres' spokesman Stephane Dujarric, who despite promising including on camera to answer banned Inner City Press' questions has refused to, including on November 25 lying that he was only that day asked about Michael Bloomberg quitting the UN to run for office in the US, when Inner City Press on November 11 in writing asked him, Guterres, Melissa Fleming, Amina J. Mohammed and others precisely this question, without answer.   The UN under Antonio Guterres is a fraud that steals the public's money, and uses it to cover up rapes of the indigent by its "peacekeepers" while refusing to answer the questions of the Press that asks. We'll have more on this.
