UN Guterres Lied In Geneva While Retaliating Against Press and Covering Up UN Rapes Criminal
By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Audio Leak
UN GATE, Dec 22 – Today's UN system's attacks on whistleblowers extend from New York where Secretary General Antonio Guterres' armed Security officials ousted the Press on first 22 June 2018 (video, petition, Q&A) then on 3 July 2018 and for 529 days since, to Geneva where the Human Rights Commissioner's spokesman Rupert Colville deploys "hard talk" (and worse) against whistleblowers.
On August 1 Inner City Press reached out to UN whistleblower Emma Reilly for an update on her case(s). Noting that Guterres' Jan Beagle has said that staff are free to respond, we publish her response: "my two remaining cases were heard last month before the UN Dispute Tribunal. I felt I was given a fair hearing, and was feeling confident that the judgement of the Tribunal would go some way to restoring my reputation, which the UN so deliberately and maliciously attacked. The UN argued, in public hearings, that it was "unreasonable" for me to believe that human rights could, under any circumstances, take priority over the possibility of an improved political relationship with China. I had always hoped that was an error of the Ethics Officer assigned to my case, but the hearings confirmed it is in fact official UN policy. Instead of allowing justice to take its course, the UN intervened to remove the judge hearing my case. I will challenge that, but after six years of retaliation, I am frankly tired of seeing the UN ignore every principle it advocates. I can simply no longer ignore the hypocrisy of the UN Human Rights Office being complicit in the very reprisals its denounces, or the UN advocating for the rule of law while breaching the most fundamental principles of equality of arms, and independence of the judiciary. Can you imagine the UN reaction if the accused in a court case removed the judge between trial and verdict? I could not believe more strongly in the principles the UN claims to uphold, nor be more disappointed at the fact that the most senior officials are so willing to betray all of them in order to cover up a policy of complicity in human rights violations. Every time I reported that officials were handing names to China, I genuinely thought they would care about people's lives and safety and it would stop. I was clearly naïve."
It's that Guterres has a financial link to the UN briber CEFC China Energy, through the Gulbenkian Foundation, and uses publicly funded guard to rough up the Press that asks. Disgusting.
And so to is this leaked audio, from Guterres most recent junket to Geneva as a justification for spending public money to travel again to his real home in Lisbon. In it, he claims to be committed to protecting against retaliation, while retaliating against Reilly, the Press and others. He also claims to be against sexual harassment, while covering up UN rapes. He is a hypocrite.
We will have more from this UN Town Hall audio. Before publishing this first clip, on December 20 we asked Guterres, Dujarric, Melissa Fleming and Farhan Haq: "December 20-1: In SG Guterres' Town Hall in Geneva, what is your comment on what he said about whistleblowers, and if it in fact it is any way complied with in the cases of Emma Reilly, Miranda Brown, Kompass and others?" No answer at all. Totally corrupt.
