At the United Nations under Antonio Guterres, there are only failures, excuses and fundraising on crises like UkraineBurma, Haiti and Cameroon.

There is impunity for sexual abuse by peacekeepers and UN staff like Juan Carlos Cunillera, just “along the way” during sex in the UN van exposed
by Inner City Press.

But now that we’ve watched and asked about Guterres’ omission of his ties to the UN CEFC China Energy bribe, which led him to ban the press (and Melissa Fleming continued the ban, not even to respond
pro bono of a law firm letter), on April 17, 2022, we published on other officials – including longtime UNOPS officer Vitaly Vanshelboim (whom Inner City Press covered under UNOPS gag orders prior to being banned from the UN by the corrupt Guterres.)

We noted Vanshelboim’s skeeze in the UNOPS Grete Faremo S3i scam or Inner City Press repeated asked UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric in writing, with no response, nor by Melissa Fleming.

Weeks later, the NYT, silent on most of the corruption of Guterres and his cronies, came to the UNOPS story. Fine. And a quick spin from Dujarric: “The Secretary-General has accepted the resignation of Grete Faremo, the Executive Director of the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). Ms. Faremo’s resignation is effective Sunday, May 8. The Secretary-General is grateful for Ms. Faremo’s commitment and dedication to the Organization Mr. Jens Wandel of Denmark is appointed Acting Executive Director, effective 9 May, while the Secretary-General launches a process of recruitment, in consultation with the UNOPS Executive Board, to find a successor to Ms. Faremo.”

out by SG Antonio Guterres,
Dujarric and Fleming exposed
Wendel too, for example here.]

But while the NYT notes, for example, that longtime member of the UN Correspondents’ Association Gloria Starr Kins (previous tweet Inner City Press here) played a role in abetting the fraud, they do not mention UNCA or NYT correspondents’ membership in it and their role in the press ban. That the NYT, so active on certain beats, is usually little more than a cheerleader at the UN is a travesty. Look at this site – and Vanshelboim, here:

Two (2) residential properties, Ukraine
Two (2) residential properties, held in condominium, United States

Annuity, ING, United States
Investment funds, Citi Bank, USA
Investment fund, Danske Invest, jointly owned, Denmark

While Citibank (“Citi Bank”) still does business in Russia, what is the status of Vanshelboim properties in Ukraine? Anyway, no friend of freedom of the press.

We will have more on this.
