Guterres of Corrupt UN Says He Wants to Move to Qatar While Maintains Secret List of People Banned from UN

By Matthew Russell Lee, Audio

UNITED NATIONS, March 4, 2023 – The UN maintains a secret list of people banned from entering its premises. Even the Security officers who enforce the ban are not told the reason why a person is on the list: whether it was for actual violence, or writing articles questioning the Secretary General Antonio Guterres' misuse of public funds, for example.

  Currently on March 4, 2023, Guterres is spending public funds traveling not to earthquake struck Turkey much less Syria, but to Qatar, which he last slipped into for the World Cup of Blood, not mentioning all the migrant workers killed to build it. In Doha on March 4 Guterres bloviated: "It’s an honour to join you, your Highness, to inaugurate this magnificent new UN House.      I have to say that when I saw it, I had a huge temptation. Temptation to consult the President of the General Assembly to know if I can participate online in the meetings of the General Assembly from an office here. If that would be possible, sincerely think of moving to Doha" - yeah, and why not China which bid on the oil company of Gulbenkian Foundation whose payments to Guterres he omitted from his public financial disclosure, he's grateful. The most corrupt Secretary General ever.

  On February 13, 2023, Inner City Press which reports closely on UN corruption and failures, with sources all over the world, received from the UN without further explanation and no due process this:

"From: noreply at un dot org Date: Mon, Feb 13, 2023 at 10:32 AM Subject: [Indico] Accreditation declined To: Matthew dot Lee at Inner City Press dot com

 Dear Matthew Lee,  We regret to inform you that Your accreditation for the accreditation type Media under Matthew Lee is now declined.

 To manage your accreditation follow this link: Manage my accreditation  This is an automated email. For inquiries, contact the +1 (212) 963-6934"  Photo here.

 This while Guterres is wasting public money with three February 14 photo ops --- Beatriz Argimón, Vice-President, Urugua, Ian Borg,  Malta, , Bogdan Aurescu,  Romania  - while Inner City Press, which is bans, is arguing in the SDNY to unseal about OneCoin.

Earlier, one told Inner City Press the secret list includes "demonstrators" and "political activists," audio here.

  Guterres or apparently his head of Global Communications Alison Smale, if only as a proxy, can put a journalist on the list without any review, any notice, any appeal. It is a dictator's dream come true.

   Inner City Press was physically ousted twice by Guterres' UN Security this summer as it reported on his now-15 flights to his home in Lisbon with public funds, his trading away of Cameroon human rights abuses for favors in the Budget Committee, and now his son Pedro's undisclosed business links in Africa.

In 2021, Guetrres and his head of Media Accreditation Melissa Fleming refused to answer a polite letter from pro bono law firm Quinn Emanuel. On December 2, 2022 I was banned from PGA Csaba Korosi's "Civil Society Town Hall" - his spokesperson Paulina Kubiak emerged to say an appeal to DSS was possible. It was filed on December 5 - but not even any confirmation of receipt. The UN has become North Korea under Guterres, and the UN press corpse / UN Censorship Alliance (UNCA) is complicit.


  Another UN Security officer told me, No one is going to help you. You are on the list. I asked him, who else is on the list? He mentioned “demonstrators” and "political activists" and others. Audio here.

  Tellingly, NOT on Guterres' banned list are those who pleaded guilty to UN bribery for example in the Ng Lap Seng - John Ashe case. They are not banned by Guterres, UNlike the journalist who most closely covered those convictions, and the current UN bribery case of Patrick Ho and the China Energy Fund Committee. Guterres is fine with bribery, but bans those who investigate and expose it.
