I don't this organization now run by the corrupt can be reformed. This is a world of bureaucracy run wild. a bureaucracy with minimal oversight and maximum budget.
Peter Foster: Cleaning up at the UN
The Secretary-General is said to be flagrantly obstructive of attempts to tackle corruption
Last year, a memo from a Norwegian diplomat described United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon as “spineless and charmless.” Two weeks ago, an even more critical memo was leaked, from the outgoing head of the UN’s Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), Inga-Britt Ahlenius, accusing the SG of being flagrantly obstructive of her attempts to clean up the organization’s persistent corruption. According to her memo, “[Y]our actions are not only deplorable, but seriously reprehensible.”
Under the circumstances — and given that the UN is recognized as one of the worst-managed organizations on earth — one has to wonder what would possess anybody to take up the position left vacant by Ms. Ahlenius. Last week a Canadian, Carman Lapointe-Young, was given the job.
