Departing U.N. official calls Ban’s leadership ‘deplorable’ in 50-page memo
The sooner the UN (Useless Nincompoops) is disbanded the better for the free world. This outdated, Marxist organisation needs to be treated with the contempt it deserves. It is corrupt and its sole purpose is to suck up our money (only the first world need contribute) for power and control of the world.
Knifed Ex-Australian Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, is now tipped to join this dinosaur organisation (as a Climate Change consultant – hahahaha). Yeah, like seeks like. Need I say more? Oh, and Australia (under Rudd) diverted international aid funds to UN voting countries – and hey, presto, Rudd has been offered a seat on the UN. Nothing to see here, move along.
UNITED NATIONS — The outgoing chief of a U.N. office charged with combating corruption at the United Nations has issued a stinging rebuke of Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, accusing him of undermining her efforts and leading the global institution into an era of decline, according to a confidential end-of-assignment report.
The memo by Inga-Britt Ahlenius, a Swedish auditor who stepped down Friday as undersecretary general of the Office of Internal Oversight Services, represents an extraordinary personal attack on Ban from a senior U.N. official. The memo also marks a challenge to Ban’s studiously cultivated image as a champion of accountability.
Shortly after taking office in 2007, Ban committed himself to restoring the United Nations’ reputation, which had been sullied by revelations of corruption in the agency’s oil-for-food program in Iraq.
But Ahlenius says that, rather than being an advocate for accountability, Ban, along with his top advisers, has systematically sought to undercut the independence of her office, initially by trying to set up a competing investigations unit under his control and then by thwarting her efforts to hire her own staff.
“Your actions are not only deplorable, but seriously reprehensible. . . . Your action is without precedent and in my opinion seriously embarrassing for yourself,” Ahlenius wrote in the 50-page memo to Ban, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Post. “I regret to say that the secretariat now is in a process of decay.”
Ban’s top advisers said that Ahlenius’s memo constituted a deeply unbalanced account of their differences and that her criticism of Ban’s stewardship of the United Nations was patently unfair.
