2018 The UN Peacekeepers Rape Scandal Gets Worse. Whistle-blower says UN troops act with ‘complete impunity’. Report on sexual abuse of children went from ‘inbox to inbox’.(Bloomberg. 13/11/2018) .Washington Post 2019. UN Peacekeepers in Haiti fathered children and abandoned The United Nations’ peacekeeping efforts have previously been tainted by allegations of sexual .
2017 Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced new measures to tackle sexual abuse and exploitation by U.N. peacekeepers and other personnel. There is a mass of evidential information on global media as to the history of women and children being raped, prostitutes, sodomised and brutalized by UN officials, Aid Workers, UN Peacekeeping forces. Below I only scratch the surface of these terrible criminal activities against the vulnerable people that the UN are suppose to save
There are tens of thousands of UN Aid workers around the world that have paedophile tendencies, however if you wear a UNICEF printed T Shirt then these paedophiles are not likely to be questioned (Source: UN Emergency Coordination Centre Chief Operations Officer- The Sun British Tabloid)) The Sun tabloid reported that an estimated 60,000 cases of sexual exploitation had been committed over the last decade by 3,300 paedophiles working for the UN Organization.
Child rape crimes inadvertently funded by the UK Taxpayers (Reports Reuters as claimed by Oxfam whom condemned the behaviour of former staff in Haiti who had allegedly paid for sex while on a mission to help earthquake stricken victims in 2010
This is not the first time the UN has faced scrutiny over allegations of sexual exploitation by its staff. UN Secretary-General António Guterres admitted that the UN had “wrestled for many years with the issue of sexual exploitation and abuse,” (Source: British newspaper The Times).
In 2005 it was reported that Secretary General Kofi Annan admitted that UN Peacemakers and staff have sexually abused, exploited war refugees in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. There were 150 allegations some were captured on video tape this included rape & prostitution. Other UN Peacekeepers were accused of similar crimes in other countries. These crimes of sexual exploitation, rape came three years after another UN Reports that found evidence of sexual abuse of West African refugees. Various UN Reports have come to light over more than a decade, reports and interviews with humanitarian groups suggest that UN International Peacekeeping missions have created a predatory sexual culture among vulnerable refugees which include relief workers who demand sexual favours in exchange for food also UN Troops who rape women at gunpoint
Allegations of sexual abuse or misconduct by U.N. staff stretch back at least a decade, to operations in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. A 2001 report, released by the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Save the Children, found that sexual violence against refugees in West Africa was endemic (though some of its findings were denied by a subsequent U.N. team). A year later a coalition of religious organizations sent a letter to Secretary of State Colin Powell urging the United States to send more human rights monitors into Congo. The U.N. then introduced a “code of conduct” to help prevent future abuses, including prohibitions against sexual activity between staff and children and the exchange of money or food for sex.
It now appears, however, that little has changed on the ground. The U.N. Mission in Congo (MONUC) employs about 10,800 peacekeepers from 50 countries, in addition to many civilian staff. Yet there is no independent oversight of U.N. operations in its refugee camps. For that matter, none of the international agencies in the country has U.N. authority to protect the civil rights of internal refugees.Almost a year after the MONUC office in Kindu sent a memo in August 2003 to its headquarters in Kinshasa, detailing suspicions of sexual exploitation, the London Independent discovered action still hadn’t been taken. “We recognize that sexual exploitation and abuse is a problem in some missions,” said Jane Holl Lute, a U.N. assistant secretary general, at a recent press conference. “It’s obvious that the measures we’ve had in place have not been adequate.”
Relief organizations and human rights groups agree, describing as “urgent” the need to protect young girls from U.N. militia and staff. As Patrick Barbier, of Doctors Without Borders, told one newspaper: “It is clear that the necessary steps to protect the displaced population from violence and sexual exploitation have not been followed.”
The international operation in Bunia, home to about 16,000 refugees, threatened to become another monument to U.N. paralysis and failure. Investigators describe a “significant, widespread and ongoing” pattern of abuse at the camp–an astonishing conclusion given that many women are afraid to report sexual violence against them. At least one senior official in charge of security in Bunia is implicated in the scandal, and U.N. peacekeepers allegedly have threatened investigators with retaliation. According to the Economist, a U.N. probe is even considering the possibility that MONUC has been infiltrated by “organized paedophiles who recruit their friends.”
The U.N. abuses are especially grievous in Congo, where sexual violence against women and children has been a weapon of war employed by most of the armies involved in the six-year-old conflict. Called “Africa’s world war,” it has involved militias from Angola, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Rwanda, and Congo. Despite a peace agreement reached in 2002, the fighting continues: According to the International Rescue Committee, more than 31,000 civilians are dying a month from violence, disease, and famine; tens of thousands remain in refugee camps, mostly women and children. In Bunia alone, a U.N. Children’s Fund (UNICEF) program has treated 2,000 victims of sexual violence in recent months
Kofi Annan has insisted on “zero tolerance” of sexual exploitation by peacekeepers, but U.N. rules apply only to U.N. employees; military personnel fall under the jurisdiction of their own governments. Only a few peacekeepers have been deported, and no U.N. staff have been charged with criminal activity.
The U.N. episode, piled on top of the ongoing Oil for Food scandal in Iraq, may help focus the mind. The sexual abuses committed, or ignored, by U.N. personnel violate the institution’s Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women, and the principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A 2002 U.N. report characterized the sexual exploitation issue as “a betrayal of trust as well as a catastrophic failure of protection.”
UN Peacekeepers have a reputation in several countries as predators
An Associated Press (AP) investigation revealed in 2017 that more than 100 United Nations (UN) peacekeepers ran a child sex ring in Haiti over a 10-year period and none were ever jailed. The report further found that over the previous 12 years, there had been almost 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation by peacekeepers and other UN personnel around the world. AP found the abuse to be much greater than originally thought. After the AP report, U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, urged all countries to hold UN peacekeepers accountable for any sexual abuse and exploitation. As early as 2004, Amnesty International reported that underage girls were being kidnapped, tortured and forced into prostitution in Kosovo with UN and NATO personnel being the customers driving the demand for the sex slaves.
The UN’s department of peacekeeping in New York acknowledged at that time that “peacekeepers have come to be seen as part of the problem in trafficking rather than the solution”.[\Reporters witnessed a rapid increase in prostitution in Cambodia, Mozambique, Bosnia, and Kosovo after UN and, in the case of the latter two, NATO peacekeeping forces moved in. Instances of abuse in Cambodia caused widespread outrage after many of the abused women and girls also ended up contracting HIV/AIDS and other diseases that were not prevalent among the local population.
A Kosovo victims support group reported that of the local prostitutes, a third were under 14, and 80% were under 18. Amnesty said the victims were routinely raped “as a means of control and coercion” and kept in terrible conditions as slaves by their “owners”; sometimes kept in darkened rooms unable to go out. In Haiti, the Sri Lankan peacekeepers wanted girls and boys as young as 12 for sex. “I did not even have breasts,” said Victim No. 1, a girl. She reported to UN investigators that from ages 12 to 15 she had sex with over 40 peacekeepers, including someone called “Commandant” who paid her 75 cents. She stated that she slept in UN trucks on the UN base. In Haiti, 134 peacekeepers from Sri Lanka operated the child sex ring, luring children with candy and cash, according to the AP. After a U.N. report incriminated the peacekeepers, most were sent back to Sri Lanka, but none served any jail time
Canadian government analysis. Internal Canadian government documents reports dated 2016 suggest that The United Nations has “glaring gaps” in its procedures for tracking and prosecuting peacekeepers accused of exploitation and sexual abuse, and that only a small fraction of cases may be reported. The Toronto Star obtained the memo which reads in part: “Events in (the Central African Republic) and the data coming out of the (Secretary General’s 2016) annual report point to a system that is lacking in efficiency, transparency and coherency.” The memo goes on to say: “Part of the answer to these deficiencies lies in establishing enduring, system-wide structures but the nature of UN governance makes this a challenging endeavour. In addition, as we continue to unpack how member states themselves can better approach this issue from pre-deployment training to punishing perpetrators to victims’ assistance, there must also be a greater willingness by individual countries to examine and address internal shortfalls.” In 2016, a UN report named 21 countries that had 69 credible reports of incidents in 2015. It documented 69 allegations in 2015 alone. One briefing note obtained by the Star pointed to “unique, structural factors within the UN system” complicated goals of greater transparency and enforcement. “Although military personnel are covered by military codes of conduct and justice systems, UN police and civilian staff accused of SEA[clarification needed] in the field may face only minor disciplinary measures, such as repatriation and being barred from future deployments,” the unclassified document reads.
There was one highly publicised case where members of the UN peacekeeping force were accused of direct involvement in the procurement of sex slaves for a local brothel in Bosnia. The use of agents for procurement and management of brothels has allowed the military to believe itself shielded from the issue of sexual slavery and human trafficking. Some NATO troops and private contractors of the firm DynCorp have been linked to prostitution and forced prostitution in Bosnia and Kosovo, as have some UN employees in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where they were accused of the sexual abuse of girls.
In 2010, a film, The Whistleblower, directed by Larysa Kondracki, aired on the affair, based on Nebraskan police officer Kathryn Bolkovac, who served as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and outed the U.N. for covering up the sex scandal. The film featured Rachel Weisz, Monica Bellucci, Vanessa Redgrave, and many others.[
UN troops in Haiti and Sudan have been accused of sexual abuse of children. In 2004–2007, according to an internal UN report, over 100 UN soldiers were sent home for their involvement in a “sex ring”, but none were charged. In 2015, the UN started disclosing more figures about thousands of allegations of forced sex with UN soldiers in exchange for material aid, of which hundreds involving minors. In the Central African Republic, at least 98 girls said they had been sexually abused by international peacekeepers. UN identified 41 troops from Burundi and Gabon accused of sexual abuse and exploitation in Central African Republic in 2014 and 2015. The identified troops have now left the country.[ Toronto Star 100 UN Peacekeepers ran a child sex ring in Haiti were never jailed 14th April 2017
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) —The men who came from a far-away place and spoke a strange language offered the Haitian children cookies and other snacks. Sometimes they gave them a few dollars. But the price was high: The Sri Lankan peacekeepers wanted sex from girls and boys. Here in Haiti, at least 134 Sri Lankan peacekeepers exploited nine children in a sex ring from 2004 to 2007, according to an internal U.N. report obtained by the AP. In the wake of the report, 114 peacekeepers were sent home. None was ever imprisoned. In March, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced new measures to tackle sexual abuse and exploitation by U.N. peacekeepers and other personnel. But the proclamation had a depressingly familiar ring: More than a decade ago, the United Nations commissioned a report that promised to do much the same thing, yet most of the reforms never materialized.
For a full two years after those promises were made, the children in Haiti were passed around from soldier to soldier. And in the years since, peacekeepers have been accused of sexual abuse the world over. Alleged abusers came from Bangladesh, Brazil, Jordan, Nigeria, Pakistan, Uruguay and Sri Lanka, according to U.N. data and interviews. More countries may have been involved, but the United Nations only started disclosing alleged perpetrators’ nationalities after 2015.
The litany of abuses is long. U.N. data during the 12-year period reviewed by AP is incomplete and varies in levels of detail, particularly for cases before 2010. Hundreds of other cases were closed with little to no explanation. In its review, the AP analysed data from annual reports as well as information from the Office of Internal Oversight Services
The sheer toll of abuse uncovered by UNICEF staff has sent shockwaves through the UN. The incident attributed to French forces is also particularly alarming, as it suggests senior officials were involved in sexual abuse, which may have taken place in a central location with many witnesses.
