UN Whistleblower Reilly Fired By Guterres Speaks To Inner City Press, Banned by Guterres

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

UN GATE Exclusive, Nov 10 – In the UN of Antonio Guterres, those who ask about his undisclosed links to Chinese bribery firm CEFC China Energy, or or blow the whistle on the UN given China the names of Uighur witnesses, get physically thrown out and banned, or in the case of staff, fired.   

 Inner City Press, which asked Guterres' spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming each weekday in August and September about the slow motion firing of whistleblower Emma Reilly, now publishes this answer from her:

"I was retrospectively placed on special leave with full pay from the moment the UN sent armed police to invade my home. They stopped even pretending I had functions - why bother, when they can just fire any judge at the Tribunal who isn't willing to simply copy-paste their position?  

And I was fired for daring to tell the truth. I am not and have never been accused of lying about this policy, just of revealing it and trying to warn people. The UN "anonymous" source in Le Monde (Eric Tistounet) all but admits the destruction of evidence I've reported - sorry, but a list of names handed over was allegedly stolen? Did the dog eat the UN's homework, too?

I, of course, dutifully reported that directly to the Secretary-General yesterday. The UN has absolutely no idea how many times names were handed over, whose names were transmitted, and whether it continues. Names appear to be now given orally. Still nobody thinks that it's worth investigating why this policy was put in place.  Guterres told me in a personal email once that he would see what he could do about my case with the "people in charge." His words. I guess the Chinese delegation gave its orders.

There isn't an amount of money on earth that I could be paid to be complicit in torture and genocide.

The UN considers my lack of "remorse" for that an aggravating factor justifying my immediate dismissal.  I have a message for UN managers. I no longer have immunity. Sue me for defamation if you pretend anything I have ever said is untrue. I will certainly be suing those who lied about me.  And you can quote me on all of that."   

This is today's UN under Guterres: absolutely corrupt. Inner City Press has applied to re-enter and cover it as closely as it does the SDNY court these days; a polite letter to this effect from law firm Quinn Emanuel has yet to be answered by Fleming or any of her allies in censorship.
