As Inner City Press Asks How Much Gallach Let GSF Put Into Slavery, She Proceeds Saturday Eviction

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive series

UNITED NATIONS, April 15 -- As the UN bribery scandal gathered force Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called for an audit by the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services. The audit, completed early this year but first put online by Inner City Press, directly criticizes Cristina Gallach, the Under Secretary General for Communications and Public Information.

  Gallach, without recusing herself, unilaterally deactivated Inner City Press UN residential correspondents pass on February 19, and had Inner City Press' reporter physically thrown out on First Avenue without coat or passport. Audio here.

  This is called retaliation. Now, after misrepresenting the restrictions she has put on the Press, she has ordered the final eviction of all of Inner City Press' investigative files on Saturday, April 16 at 10 am.  On April 15, Inner City Press asked UN Deputy Spokesperson Farhan Haq how much Gallach allowed the corruption Global Sustainability Foundation to put into the slavery event Ban Ki-moon attended, and about the Government Accountability Projects letter to Ban Ki-moon charging him with retaliation. Video here.
