On Afghanistan Question to UNICEF Blocked By SG Guterres As He Abandons Local Staff

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

UN GATE, Oct 27 – On October 27 Inner City Press received an invite from  UNICEF  to sign into WebEx online briefing to ask questions to Yasmine Sherif, Education Cannot Wait director.

But when it did, with questions about Afghanistan and UNICEF including its use of the public's funds, and about UN staff abandoned by Guterres , it was "removed by the host." Video here.

By contrast, only on October 26 Inner City Press was interviewed by NBC TV in Buffalo here.

Inner City Press has asked for now three at UNICEF / ECW for an explanation, on deadline. We'll have more on this. For now, podcast here.

Meanwhile Guterres pmitted his personal financial links to UN briber CEFC China Energy, convicted in the SDNY court, including by banning Inner City Press which reported on that case and asked UN Spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming about it.

(Neither has answered a polite letter from the Quinn Emanuel law firm seeking Inner City Press' re-accreditation and an end to UN censorship). 


This is today's UN - and, it seems, UNICEF. Watch this site.
