UNRWA Chief Suspended Amid Corruption Investigation

Internal report: UNRWA top management involved in “sexual misconduct, nepotism, retaliation, discrimination and other abuses of authority”

Legal Insurrection:
The head of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for “Palestinian Refugees” (UNRWA) has been suspended amid ongoing investigations into widespread corruption under his watch.

Internal investigations “revealed management issues which relate specifically to the (UNRWA) Commissioner-General” Pierre Krahenbuhl, a statement issued by the UN said on Wednesday.

The allegations which first surfaced in a leaked internal report earlier this year, which found top UNRAW officials implicated in sexual misconduct and other “serious ethical abuses.” The UNRAW chief Krahenbuhl and organization’s top brass were involved in “sexual misconduct, nepotism, retaliation, discrimination and other abuses of authority, for personal gain, to suppress legitimate dissent, and to otherwise achieve their personal objectives,” a report compiled by agency’s ethics office had found.

The latest announcement is apparently a desperate move by the UN to clean the image of the troubled organisation. Major European donors such as Belgium, Holland, and Switzerland froze payments due to the corruption scandals. Last year, President Donald Trump’s administration ended all financial ties with the UN body, calling it “irredeemably flawed.” This is in sharp contrast to the Obama-era when the agency was receiving over $300 million each year in U.S. taxpayer money, covering around third of its billion-dollar budget.

  1. You cunt help but notice that gov’t charity does everything in reverse. All they do is hurt people.

  2. The leaders in this world don’t think the rules that apply to everyone else also apply to them.

    And, for the most part, they’re right. Occasionally one gets hammered, but not very often.

  3. There is absolutely zero need for the UN, unless you’re a globalist elitist. The few things they do that are good (post office, world health) can and are done outside of them.

    NATO would serve the US national security interests far better at a much lower cost. Imagine what would happen if:

    1. The US stopped paying 25% of the UN budget
    2. The US threw the UN out of the country (what was left of it)
    3. And, the above was done effective Jan 1 2020

    There would be no platform for dictatorships around the world to lambast us, extort us, and plot to bring us down. Sure there would be some chaos, but that just might work out well for the poor victims of the dictators.

    On the negative side, China and Russia might form an alliance of their own…but they already have.

    Just think of all those unpaid parking tickets NY could collect, and all the criminal arrests we could make once the ‘diplomats’ lost their immunity.

  4. Trump ought to thank the UN for all the work they’ve done over the years and then ask them politely yet firmly to leave and let some other country have the honor of hosting them. Put a date of January 1st, 2021 to be gone. Then figure out where and what all the land and assets associated with the UN is and expropriate them. Create a private sector body to appraise and liquidate it all and split the money with NYC. Then announce that while the US would not withdraw from the UN that they would be reducing it’s payments by 90%.
