Exclusive: UN Guterres Wants Video Only GA Week And Drivers Licenses From New Jersey


By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive, PatreonBBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR PFT
UN GATE / SDNY COURT, May 13 –  UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on May 13 in an internal meeting with UN staff predicted that the COVID-19 pandemic will get worse because some countries don't want to give international organizations like his and the World Health Organization more power (or "teeth," as he called it).
Exclusive video on YouTube and Facebook.
    With a strange laugh, Guterres said If we can hunt with a dog, we'll hunt with a cat.
    No UN staff member ask, with regard to WHO, about the exclusion of Taiwan. Nor, unless censored in the way that Guterres has censored Inner City Press for its investigative reporting, did they ask about Guterres' personal financial links to convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy.
    Guterres seemed most committed to going forward with the UN's 75th birthday party this September, whatever the conditions in New York. 
   He proposed that each of the UN's 193 member states should sent only one staffer in to the General Assembly Hall, to watch pre-recorded statements by heads of state like Saudi Arabia's MBS and Cameroon's Paul Biya. (Xi Jinping, it is assumed, would feature prominently).
   UN staff, or at least its union officials, were concerned about getting drivers licenses in New Jersey. Guterres, mis-pronouning the state's name, bragged that he has intervened in the matter. Is Governor Murphy putting out for the UN, and those under US sanctions?
   Guterres, we note, has no respect for the laws of the US including the First Amendment or of its states. He allowed his personal guards to keep their gym open in UN Headquarters, international territory, long after Mayor De Blasio closed all the City gyms. Guterres said he saw some positive in the lock-down.
Inner City Press, now daily covering the Federal courts and jails while banned from the UN and even its Zoom rooms for 680 days and counting, will have more on this.

UN Scam Debate Of Lone PGA Candidate Volkan Bozkir With Conchita Wurst Echo and SG Guterres Hypocrisy


By Matthew Russell Lee, PatreonBBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR PFT
UN GATE / SDNY COURT, May 10 – How corrupt is today's United Nations? On May 15 the UN General Assembly will hold a "informal interactive dialogue" for the lone rubber-stamp candidate to be UN President of the GA, Volkan Bozkir. 
  Since there is no other candidate, it's akin to a presidential debate in North Korea.
And in other ways too: Turkish "diplomatic" Volkan Bozkir is best known for saying, after "drag queen" Conchita Wurst's Eurovision win, "Thank God we no longer participate in Eurovision."
   Yet watch corrupt UNSG Antonio Guterres speak warmly about it. Guterres believes in nothing but himself, wanting to "run" unopposed for a second term. This should be denied. Here's the notice, from another UN office whose spokesperson Reem Abaza like Guterres' Stephane Dujarric refuses to answer Inner City Press' written questions about its corruption:
 "The President of the 74th session of the General Assembly, Tijjani Muhammad-Bande will convene an informal interactive dialogue with the candidate for the position of President of the 75th session of the Assembly, Volkan Bozkir on Friday, 15 May 2020, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.     The dialogue will be held via a virtual platform due to the continued limitations on holding large in-person meetings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic."
  Under Guterres' Melissa Fleming, it seems Inner City Press will be denied video of the "debate." Inner City Press, banned from the UN and now its Zoom rooms for 676 days, will have much more on this. Watch this site.

WHO Denies Delaying COVID Info For Xi But UN Lied 6 Years On Taking Cholera To Haiti


By Matthew Russell Lee, PatreonBBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR PFT

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, Jan 4 – The World Health Organization has issued a denial, which Inner City Press published minutes after issuance, that China's Xi Jinping "personally asked WHO to hold back information about human to human transmission and delayed the global response for four to six weeks" at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, sourced to German intelligence by Der Spiegel.
   Inner City Press published WHO's denial first, noting that other questions about the current UNMISS Mission in South Sudan spreading COVID-19 with its admittedly lax practices (on which it and UNSG Antonio Guterres have refused Press questions) and WHO giving Cameroon's Paul Biya 14 luxury vehicles remain unanswered.
   But there a more fundamental problem or context to UN system denials, particularly on questions of deadly diseases.
    The UN lied for SIX YEAR about having brought cholera to Haiti. In the UN briefing room in New York, Inner City Press in person asked Guterres' spokesman Stephane Dujarric more than a dozen times about it, and Dujarric each time denied it, on UN video that he and Melissa Fleming now refuse to give to the Press. 
  Tellingly, even when denial became untenable, no one in the UN was ever disciplined for all the lies. Dujarric is still Guterres spokesman, now lying about COVID-19 and the UN system's role this time on Zoom since the UN has closed its headquarters other than allow Guterres' guard to continue to collectively use their gym there.
  And while for weeks now Inner City Press has sought answers from WHO, by email and raising its Zoom hand, nothing (except Tedros' lawyer about Taiwan.)
   So this UN system has no credibility, and continue to censor to try to hide its tracks. We'll have more on this.

Exclusive: UN In NY Proposes In Person Voting Or 45 Day Delay As It Spreads COVID in South Sudan


By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive PatreonBBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR PFT

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, May 1 – UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, while refusing to answer Press questions about his mission spreading COVID-19 in South Sudan and new rape charges against UN peacekeepers there and in Afghanistan and the Central African Republic, took seven pre-selected questions on Apri 30. Video with analysis here and here.
  Now from Guterres' corrupt UN Secretariat, Inner City Press has obtained its memo setting out options for the UN General Assembly to vote on electing to UN positions, for example for the next members of the now also dubious UN Security Council -- no answer from current President Estonia, here.

 The four page memo, pages of which Inner City Press is tweeting here, is called Options for Elections, and list four such elections in June 2020 (including ECOSOC, next PGA and VPs).
  The UN is so archaic that in New York which just cancelled its Presidential primary the UN is proposing voting in a specific venue, but with different time slots. A set up for fraud, several Member States have told Inner City Press.
Even more dubious would be Guterres' Secretariat running an "eBallot module." Yet even so the memo says it would take Guterres' DGACM a full 45 days to develop this. What have they been doing for the past two months? We'll have more on this exclusive.
On April 30, tellingly, of the questions picked by Guterres three were from the state media of Turkey, Russia and Qatar (China gets its answers and actions from Guterres off-line). 
  None of those selected by UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric asked about South Sudan, or UN rapes, or corruption. Inner City Press, which Guterres and Dujarric arranged to have roughed up by UN Security and banned now 667 days, submitted more than 20 questions in writing. 
  None have been answered or acknowledged, including questions about WHO in Cameroon and about Honduras' president, from whom Guterres through his spokesman bragged of taking $50,000 from, being named in a new narco trafficking indictment on April 30 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which Inner City Press now covers.
    At one point in the short briefing, Guterres literally closed his eyes while talking, or spouting platitudes. This is what the five powers want in a UN Secretary General - a lack of energy to criticize, a predictable stream of pablum.
   But with Guterres they also got a censor who is personally corrupt, hiding his financial connection through Lisbon's Gulbenkian Foundation with CEFC China Energy whose Patrick Ho was convicted in the SDNY courthouse and is now imprisoned. 
It is prison, it has become clear, where Guterres should be - but he enjoys the same immunity the UN used to pay nothing for killing 10,000 with the cholera it brought to Haiti, and that Dujarric lied about. Now it is being repeated in South Sudan, by Guterres. Inner City Press will continue to pursue this and re-entry into the UN, like the pay-to-play state media handpicked by Dujarric on April 30.

Exclusive: In UN COVID Scam South Sudan Demands WHO Info Amid Cash From Oil Consortium CNPC


By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Video SongBBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR PFT

UN GATE / SDNY COURT, April 19 – The United Nations in South Sudan acknowledged internally that a staff member has tested positive for Coronavirus COVID-19, while claiming it is taking all precautions, see below. SG Antonio Guterres has refused to answer questions from Inner City Press about this, and about his own UN Security guards still using their gym. Video here.
  Now on April 19 after the UN brags about unspecified discipline on an unidentified staffer who broke quarantine or self isolation and flew back to his or her unidentified country, Inner City Press has exclusive obtained and now publishes the South Sudan government document showing that government demanded information about the UN violation from the World Health Organization, here.
  The document, of South Sudan's High Level Task Force, also shows them taking money ostensibly for COVID-19 from tobacco company Carnak, MTN, Atlantic Energy and Patronas which, along with China National Petroleum Company, stands accused of funding militias through Dar Petroleum Operating Company. Inner City Press will be asking Juba and WHO about this.
    But what about the South Sudan UN bus without social distancing, which was Guterres rep David Shearer's fault? What about Guterres' own guards? This is another case of Do As I Say, Not As I Do (April 18 Matthew Russell Lee song here).
 Here is the disingenuous notice which does not mention the bus, the spread and the UNHQ gym: "a staff member who failed to complete self-isolation and left South Sudan without authorization.     The staff member was in isolation after it was believed he may have come into contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19. He received one test that confirmed him as negative and then left Juba on a flight without the knowledge of the United Nations. The flight was commercial, not a United Nations flight.     Since arriving in his home country, he has been tested again and is confirmed to be negative for COVID-19.     In the interests of openness and transparency, the United Nations informed the Ministry of Health and expressed its regret about what had happened.     The United Nations is continuing to strictly follow the health protocols relating to COVID-19 and is working cooperatively through the World Health Organization with the Ministry of Health.     Any United Nations staff who fail to adhere to the requirements for testing and self-isolation will face disciplinary action."
  So when will Guterres' guards be punished? When will Guterres (and Tedros) be fired?
On April 9 Inner City Press exclusively published a notice among Guterres' UN Security, which he used to oust and ban Inner City Press, violating all New York City (and state) laws by keeping their gym open, with up to three officers using it at once. Photo here.
  What will Mayor De Blasio's pro-UN office, which took masks not offered to UN staff quarantined at home (as lax practices at UN WIPO preceded the death of a staffer there) say? Inner City Press is asking Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming. The UN, including UN Security, is corrupt.
But the transcript of a meeting with staff by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres' representative in Juba, David Shearer, leaked to Inner City Press by outraged staff, shows for example that the UNMISS mission has been running busses for local staff without social distancing.
 They analogize it to when the UN brought cholera to Haiti and then lied about it for years, and has still to pay any compensation under Antonio Guterres "who instead spends the public's money on his own trips to Lisbon." Guterres and his spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming have refused all Press questions on this, choosing to ban critical Inner City Press and take staged questions from Xinhua.
Here's a first part of the transcript from Shearer's meeting with staff, after the misleading press release by Shearer's underling about COVID-19:
"The United Nations in South Sudan has confirmed a case of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) among its staff... The UN has previously imposed a travel freeze on all staff travelling into the country, ensured staff who arrived prior to the ban are self-quarantined for 14 days, introduced work-from-home measures to reduce numbers of people in offices, and enforced social distancing rules and frequent hand washing by all personnel."
This is false. From the UN Mission in South Sudan transcript leaked to Inner City Press: 
Leda Limann: SRSG, these are national staff specific. The majority of UNMISS staff have family members in Uganda. Can you please engage with Ugandan authorities?
SRSG Shearer: This is a bit tricky because for national staff, obviously, their country is here, and we expect them to work here and that is why we employ national staff because they are here. I think, what we can certainly look at what happens in the future, I am in contact with the Resident Coordinator in Uganda to see what options there are to visit family members. But it is not possible for the moment to evacuate people from South Sudan to Uganda because they are South Sudanese, that is why they are here. But we will look at the possibility of being able to access their families. At the moment, we have got no ability to be allowed into Uganda. Nobody has the possibility of entering Uganda and, likewise, coming back into South Sudan. So, we are a bit caught but let’s see what happens in the future.
    Leda Limann: National staff use the shuttle bus twice daily and the social distancing is not maintained in the bus. Is the mission taking any measures on this?
     Nope... More of the transcript is on Patreon here.
  The United Nations held a four speakers, one M.C. event to raise funds for itself off of Coronavirus on March 25.  But three of  the participants had refused to make public even the UN's bare-bones financial disclosures: Mark Lowcock, Henrietta Fore of UNICEF and Melissa Fleming.  The head man, Antonio Guterres, has lied on his form, omitting his financial links to convicted UN briber CEFC China Energy. So their credibility is questionable.
