UN GATE, Nov 21 – Before Inner City Press was roughed up by UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres' Security on June 22 and July 3, 2018 and under a ban on entry since then, it insistently asked about Guterres' conflicts of interest, for example with murderous Cameroon chairing the UN Budget Committee where Guterres sought support or with the business interests of his family, as for disclosure of how many of Guterres' publicly funded trip took him through his real home, Lisbon. (The answer, with no UN help, was at least 17 at the time Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up and thrown out of the UN.)
Now questions are not being answered at all, for months, by Spokesman Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming, and Guterres continued having Inner City Press banned from the UN, by his Global Communicator Melissa Fleming who has failed to make even the minimal public financial disclosure called for under Guterres' predecessor Ban Ki-moon. Guterres' forms do not include the business interests of his direct children - but they should. Because, as Inner City Press now further reports, there is a Pedro Guterres who is listed as the Chief Financial Officer, Mota-Engil Africa BV.
And look - while Guterres has been UN Secretary General, his son Pedro was making money in, for example, Rwanda: "met with the President of the Republic, with the Minister of Infrastructure and with the Minister of Finance, along with Manuel Mota, CEO of Mota-Engil Africa, Pedro Guterres, CFO of Mota-Engil Africa."

Guterres son, making money in Rwanda, while his father in UN Secretary General, entirely UNdisclosed. Corrupt.
Now since June 2020 Pedro Guimarães e Melo De Oliveira Guterres has been in Real Estate at Explorer Investments. Photo here. We'll have more on this.
Long before publishing this story, Inner City Press in writing asked Guterres, Dujarric, Fleming and others to confirm or deny - that is, to Verify - that this Pedro is Guterres' son. Inner City Press asked them: "immediately confirm or deny this is SG Guterres' son Pedro - important to note any conflicts of interest, here."
No answer at all - even as Fleming takes money from IKEA and Pierre Omidyar's Luminate for "Share Verified" to supposedly expand transparency and help independent media. Just as no answers on the UN sexploitation Inner City Press first exposed on June 23, here. These people are a fraud. Watch this site.
Previously Pedro Guterres has been Manager of Planning and Control at PT Portugal since 2009, see here. And "PT Portugal has significant interests in telecommunications companies in Angola, Cape Verde, Namibia and São Tomé and Principe in Africa and in Timor-Leste in Asia," see US SEC filing here. (Guterres recently rebuffed, in an entreaty to stop banning Inner City Press, Time Leste's Nobel Peace Prize laureate Jose Ramos Horta, here).
