UNITED NATIONS GATE, May 13 – As the UN Security Council holds a belated session about Cameroon, albeit an informal one with no expected outcome and notably not co-sponsored by veto holding colonial power France, hypocrisy and cover up of the UN’s failure are evident.
The head of the UN, Antonio Guterres, took a golden statue from Paul Biya in his last interaction, and cut a deal of silence for Biya’s support in the UN Budget Committee which Biya’s Ambassador Tommo Monthe chaired.
The UK’s Liam Fox bragged about UK-based New Age’s hydro carbons deal with Biya, just as another example. Sycophant media which ignored than dismissed the killings now mechanically mis-report this “Arria formula” meeting, essentially to rehabilitate the remaining credibility of the UN and themselves, like Human Rights Warch which told Inner City Press Cameroon was not a top 90 problem to be included in HRW’s 2018 World Report.
Don’t believe the hype. In 2009, for example, after the UNSC belatedly held such sessions on Sri Lanka, the lack of outcome emboldened the Rajapaksas to go ahead and “finish off” the Tamils in what’s called the Bloodbath on the Beach. The UN system has not held anyone accountable; Guterres representative Singer was smiling with Mahinda Rajapaka this year. The only thing missing was a golden statute.
Will what Guterres accepted from Biya beseen, or even mentioned, in the May 13 meeting that Inner City Press for reporting on it cannot even enter to cover in person, bannedfrom entering the UN for the 313th day by Guterres, with similar inaction by the UNSC members? Watch this site….
