Six Years After Inner City Press Exposed UN Staffer Fadil He Resurfaces in WhatsApp Report in Khartoum

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, December 22, 2019 -- Beyond the UN's failure to respond to questions about its performance in South Sudan and Central African Republic, it refused even before banning Inner City Press on 3 July 2018 to answer Inner City Press on questions of UN corruption raised by whistleblowing staff. Here is simply one example. Inner City Press asked, without answer:

"Please confirm or deny that Abdullah Fadil is with the UN-OPCW joint mission on chemical weapons in Syria, that while at UNTSO he managed to have Ministry of Foreign Affairs cards from both Israel and Lebanon, and separately that he is under investigation by OIOS and/or other UN bodies for recruitment irregularities and SEA."

  The question was not acknowledged, much less answered. Here was Inner City Press' 23 December 2013 story. Now six years later, this: "Dear Mr. Lee: Reference to the report publish in your respectable website (Link bellow ) , about the corruption of one of the seiner UN official at that time , the story is begin again but now in Sudan and about the same person , the story is distributed by Whatsapp on   21-22 Dec 2019 in Khartoum:

'Corruption that prevailed in urban and villages in the era of "No Rescue" was not confined to government institutions only, but also exceeded it to include the private sector and even the United Nations organizations .. Today in leaks (New Corporation) and after opening the files of the World Health Organization we open the files for the United Nations Fund Children's (UNICEF) ... the first episode: The UNICEF organization is run by Mr. Abdullah Fadel, who is Somali / Yemeni who holds Canadian citizenship .. Fadel was working with the African Union Mission in Darfur, where he got acquainted and has close relations with a number of rescue figures from governors, accreditors and humanitarian aid commissioners, in addition to generals in the various security services ..

These relations prepared for the master Fadel is the way to return to Sudan again as a delegate for UNICEF in 2016 despite suspicions of administrative corruption and complaints that affected him during his work in Syria and Palestine (see the link below the article) .. The man, if these suspicions are true, is proportional to the character of the budget and is compatible with dirty rescue policies ... and Since the first months of his assumption of his new position in Sudan, signs and manifestations of corruption in the organization have emerged ... These aspects include the following: 1. Loyalty to the rescue system and attempts to beautify it: Fadel worked to strengthen his presence in Sudan by creating more relations with rescue leaders, including ministers and members of the National Conference and employees of the security services ... Fadel often boasted these relations to his employees during official and unofficial meetings, and also in order to satisfy the salvation employees with much Of the financial and administrative facilities for governmental institutions, including the Ministry of Health and the National Council for Child Welfare without consulting the technical staff of the organization ...

He also tried through external trips made and technical reports submitted to the United Nations to improve Sudan's file in relation to children's rights, in an attempt to K the gallows and the international tightening of the neck of the dilapidated rescue system .. Also, after the outbreak of the glorious December revolution, despite the occurrence of a number of victims among the children, Fadel - as representative of the largest organization concerned with child issues - refrained from issuing any statement condemning and denouncing rescue practices and its security apparatus Humanity against innocent and defenseless children .. It is worth noting that UNICEF / Sudan has remained, even after the fall of the rescue system, trying to polish the image of the security services through the statements of its officials that there are no cases of child recruitment among the army and rapid support (these statements were published on the organization's Facebook and Twitter page and were erased and infringed After being attacked by the goers of social media ... After the success of the revolution, Mr. Fadel was unable to hide his dissatisfaction with the fall of the Al-Caizan regime, but he kept repeating that the revolution is doomed to failure and that the fate of Sudan is Filipina or Yemen ..

According to informed sources, Fadel is still meeting with symbols from the previous regime through which he tries to create new relations with the military component and communicate with him."

We will have more. There are a number of other Press questions long-pending in the Office of the Spokesperson, never responded to, stonewalled. And then they roughed up and banned Inner City Press. But we will not desist. The people demand the fall of the Guterres regime. Watch this site.
