UN Guterres Gets 2d Complaint of Dujarric Lying of Spying For CCP Banned Press Pursues

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Song
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 4 – How corrupt and undemocratic is today's United Nations?

Well, now that Antonio Guterres is pushing for a second five-year term, while banning the Press for the 974th day for daring to ask about his finances and failures, he has collaborators. 

  On March 3 Guterres received a formal complaint about his spokesman Stephane Dujarric, for the latter lying about the UN providing the names of dissidents to the Chinese Community Party:

"Secretary-General, I am writing to ask that you immediately place under investigation your spokesperson, Mr. Stéphane Dujarric, for deliberately lying to the press as part of a broader cover-up of the policy of the UN Human Rights Office of providing the Chinese delegation with advance information on precisely which dissidents plan to interact with UN human rights mechanisms...

 On March 4, Dujarric while refusing all written questions from Inner City Press read into his "record" a canned statement of further denial.

  As Emma Reilly puts it, That was a lie. She has written again, and Inner City Press is publishing this:

"Dear Stéphane,  You are knowingly lying about me. Furthermore, you are directly contradicting the UN's court position. There is no argument on the facts. The UN position, in court, is that the list is somehow public and the request cannot be resisted. The only security assessment ever conducted was security of Chinese diplomats from the activists. The activists testified on my behalf.   The judge had written his judgements, that's why he had to be removed.  I look forward to your public correction."

  Note: even for directly UN Security guard Ronald E. Dobbins to rough up Inner City Press and break its computer, no apology from Dujarric. A fish rots from the head:  Guterres himself hid his links to convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy, and then banned Inner City Press which asked and asks about it. In today's UN, with the Dispute Tribunal ordering the destruction of evidence, for example, there is nowhere to turn. Needed is the ouster of Guterres.

  The current President of the General Assembly Volkan Bozkir, a strongman from Turkey who due to his bigoted comments even pro-UN New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wouldn't meet with, has the duty of circulating letters from candidates. 

  But for nearly the entirety of February 2021, Bozkir has refused to circulate the letter of UN staffer candidate Arora Akanksha.

Bozkir's spokesman Brendan Varma, who blocks Inner City Press on Twitter, dances around what the rules are and won't answer. 

 So, as a test - and to raise the issue of the UN's lack of content neutral media access rules, lack of a Freedom of Information Act (fought for the Free UN Coalition for Access) and lack of scruples - Inner City Press on the morning of February 26 submitted a signed letter and C.V. to the PGA's Office and to Varma.  

 Also to the President of the Security Council for February, Barbara Woodward of the UK Mission, along with a formal request for confirmation of receipt.

By 5 pm on February 26, nothing. Absolutely corrupt. Dereliction of duty. But we will not rest. Watch this site.
