UNSG Guterres Crocodile Tears For 3 Dead in Chinatown in Solomon Island, Belt & Roadkill

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Nov 25 – The United Nations under Secretary General Antonio Guterres has become a place of corruption and self-dealing, lack of transparency and censorship.

 And of canned meaningless statements of concern. Like this, on November 26: "The Secretary-General has been following the violent protests in Honiara, Solomon Islands with concern. He calls for an end to the violence and the protection of hard-won peacebuilding gains. He urges dialogue and peaceful means to address differences. Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesman." Three bodies were found in a burn-out storefront in Chinatown there.

  But what good does Guterres' claimed concern really do, for anyone?

Forget that Guterres has only made worse the conflicts and coups in Yemen, Cameroon, Libya, Burma, Nigeria and elsewhere. 

He takes the public's money for his person trips to Lisbon, from which his wife Catarina Vaz Pinto has yet to join him in his publicly-funded mansion in New York.

When Inner City Press asks his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming how much this costs, in person than in writing after Guterres had Inner City Press thrown out, there is no answer.  Nor now from new PGA Abdulla Shahid spokesperson Paulina Kubiak Greer, here.

 Now Catarina Vaz Pinto has shown up in photos from Guterres' self-congratulatory junket to Colombia. See here.

 Who paid for her travel there from Lisbon, and her lodging there? 

Was the whole trip just a taxpayer funded vacation?

  Not only Dujarric and Fleming, but also the rest of the UN spokespeople including Farhan Haq and Eri Kaneko, Stephanie Tremblay and Florencia Soto Nino refuse to answer any of Inner City Press' written questions, emailed to them each day, including about UN rapes and Guterres links with indicted pedofile procurer Ghislaine Maxwell, on whose Terramar board Guterres' Partnership official Amir Dossal was one of only five members.  

 Inner City Press remains banned from the UN, with a polite letter to Fleming from the Quinn Emanuel law firm ignored. Today's UN is corrupt and should be de-funded. See also, Belt and Roadkill.
