Report: United Nations Rife With Sexual Harassment And Assault

Now we know what the UN is doing when it’s not passing resolutions to condemn Israel or sending peacekeepers around the world to molest local children. According to a report at the Guardian Thursday, the staff at the UN experience frequent sexual harassment and assault, including rape.

Of the employees interviewed, 15 said they had experienced or reported sexual harassment or assault within the past five years. The alleged offences ranged from verbal harassment to rape…

Three women who reported sexual harassment or sexual assault, all from different offices, said they had since been forced out of their jobs or threatened with the termination of their contract in the past year. The alleged perpetrators, who include a senior UN official, remain in their posts.

One of the women, who alleges she was raped by a more senior UN staff member while working in a remote location, said: “There are no other options to get justice, and I have lost my job too.”

She said that despite medical evidence and witness testimonies, an internal investigation by the UN found insufficient evidence to support her allegation. Along with her job, she says she has lost her visa and has spent months in hospital due to stress and trauma. She fears she will face persecution if she returns to her home country…

One aid worker, who claims she was harassed by a senior UN employee, said she has little hope of justice. “Even when you summon your courage to complain and you exhaust all the internal mechanisms, like I did, all the resources, all the processes, there’s nothing for you,” she said. “They mobilise friends, colleagues against you. I had threats, sent through friends, that ‘She will never set foot in this office again.’”

Whatever the number of reported incidents might be the number of actual ones is much greater. Some women describe incidents of assault which they chose not to report for fear of losing their jobs. Some employees also told the Guardian they were offered promotions in exchange for sexual favors.

As mentioned above, the UN has been heavily criticized for several incidents in which its own peacekeepers reportedly molested young girls and boys while stationed in Haiti and the Central African Republic. There was even a 2010 feature film, The Whistleblower starring Rachel Weisz, about UN peacekeepers involvement in sex slavery in Bosnia. The UN, like Hollywood, has a long-standing sexual ...

Six Chinese Ships Covertly Aided North Korea. The U.S. Was Watching.

At least six cargo ships linked to China furtively violated U.N. sanctions by taking on North Korean coal late last year, potentially providing a significant boost to the rogue regime's coffers, the U.S. alleges.

The U.N. Security Council in August hit North Korea with sanctions that were projected to cut nearly $1 billion from its annual exports revenue of roughly $3 billion, banning exports of coal, iron ore, and other products.

The move, which China ultimately endorsed, came after the isolated country fired two intercontinental ballistic missiles that raised international tensions.

But the six vessels, which the U.S. tracked by satellite and formally reported to the U.N. as sanctions violators in December, defied the sanctions by bringing North Korean coal to Vietnam, Russia, or other ships in mid-sea transfers, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing U.S. officials.

The paper found that the six ships are either managed or owned by Chinese companies or firms registered in Hong Kong. The U.S. also sought to have four other ships that have no apparent connections to China labeled as sanctions violators.

One of the Chinese-linked cargo ships, the Glory Hope 1, began violating the sanctions just days after they were passed in August, U.S. officials said, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The Chinese-owned ship flew a Panamanian flag and turned off its automatic identifying transmitter as it headed into a ...

Migrant Crisis: 77 Per Cent of Belgians ‘No Longer Feel at Home’

The massive rise in the proportion of Muslim migrants in the country has resulted in two-thirds of Belgians feeling their nation is being “increasingly invaded”, according to a new study.

This sentiment was especially marked among respondents to the detailed survey aged 65 and over, 84 per cent of whom likened the influx of migrants and refugees to an invasion.

Overall, two-thirds of the 4,734 people polled believe there are “too many immigrants in Belgium”, while 77 per cent agreed with the statement, “Today we no longer feel at home as we did before [mass migration]”.

Entitled Black Yellow Blues 2017, the research was an initiative of public broadcaster RTBF and liberal newspaper Le Soir, carried out by sociology research institute Survey and Action and the globalist ‘This is Not a Crisis’ foundation.


Reporting on the study, which looked at the attitudes of French-speaking Belgians and how they have changed since a similar survey was taken in 1997, RTBF laments that it depicts a population which is growing “increasingly xenophobic”.

“The results raise many questions, but they revealed a society that is filled with fear and the rejection of otherness,” writes the taxpayer-funded broadcaster.

Produced by This is Not a Crisis, an organisation which seeks to tackle populism at a time it says societies in the West must undergo “permanent transformations”, the report claims researchers “observed the development of a true anti-Muslim paranoia [among Belgians], which has taken on a ...
