Corruption and bribery alleged in UN refugee office in Sudan

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 16, 2018

And, the allegations are coming from a humanitarian publication under the UN umbrella.

Why do you care?

Because the UN High Commissioner for Refugees is the first stop for most refugees coming to your towns. (We took 53 from Sudan in the last 7 months). 

This is just more evidence that the US State Department should be cutting the umbilical cord to the United Nations Refugee Program. If we are going to be taking refugees from third world hell holes we should be doing the choosing and the processing without UN ‘help.’

(Don’t miss the chart below showing the UN as the first step in the screening of refugees to be your new neighbors!)

You know this is going on everywhere!

 

From IRIN:

EXCLUSIVE: Refugees in Sudan allege chronic corruption in UN resettlement process

 

Refugees in Khartoum, interviewed by IRIN over a 10 month period, say that individuals working with the Sudanese branch of the UN agency responsible for resettlement engage in corrupt practices, and that life-changing decisions are often made based on bribes rather than eligibility.

That agency, UNHCR, says it has now mounted an investigation.

More than a dozen people told IRIN of experiences in which individuals claiming to be affiliated with UNHCR solicited money in exchange for advancing refugees a few rungs up the long ladder to resettlement, in a kind of “pay-to-play” scheme.

A recent staff list obtained by IRIN indicates that several individuals named in interviews with refugees as engaging in corrupt practices were still employed there as of February 2018.

“We call it the mafia – they’re supposed to be caring for refugees, but here, they think of themselves,” said one Ethiopian man in Khartoum, sitting on a bed donated by another refugee he said had paid to be resettled in Australia. The man asked not to be named because he fears arbitrary arrest and deportation by Sudanese security agents, a common concern among Khartoum’s refugees.

UNHCR spokesperson Babar Baloch confirmed that the agency’s independent, Geneva-based Inspector General’s Office (IGO), which is mandated to look into allegations of misconduct, is carrying out the investigation.

These complaints were echoed by a UNHCR staff member formerly posted to the Sudanese capital, who asked to remain anonymous because of fears of professional retribution.

“The magnitude of corruption in the office… is (on) an unprecedented scale… This operation is the worst in terms of corruption [and] mismanagement,” the staff member said.

The UNHCR employee said the alleged corruption had been going on for a long time, but had become significantly worse over the past four years, with no apparent action being taken to address it.

“If they [staff] talk they will lose their job. They will be attacked and harassed. I believe lots of people in UNHCR know about this but no one wants to talk about it. That’s a problem,” the staff member said. “They know talking about it will not do anything… Even IGO. The IGO takes a long time and nothing happens… Everybody prefers to be quiet.”

Continue here, it is a very detailed story.

What can you do?

Contact the White House and tell the President to make sure his Homeland Security Department is looking in to these allegations, but more importantly tell him to stop using the UN as the first “screen” for refugees we ‘welcome’ to America.

    The State Department does not care, nor does any other department care, and the reason for this is THEY WOULD NOT HAVE ALLOWED THINGS TO GO THIS FAR, they would have closed this country up long time ago. The governmental elite believe that they are completely immune to what we experience ourselves. This further indicates that they do not care:

  2. The USA has no obligation to take in or support half of the world this is the same thing I have said about Mexico as well as all of South America we need to close our borders an tell the UN what it can do with the dangerous people they are trying to send to the USA or we are going to end up like Europe with its No Go zones where the police won’t go not without a platoon of police to protect them.

    Off topic but – looks like this could possibly develop into a “here we go again” time:

    Ebola case count update – Democratic Republic of Congo

    “As of 13 May, there is a cumulative total of 41 cases, including 20 deaths (case fatality rate = 48.8%) and three healthcare workers from Bikoro (n=2) and Iboko (n=1). Of the 41 cases reported, two cases are confirmed ( Zaire ebolavirus species), 17 are suspected and 22 are probable.”

    Several African countries are already taking steps to try and keep Ebola from spreading into their countries (ie: Nigeria) Sudan/South Sudan doesn’t appear to be too much further from the Condo than Nigeria. Let’s hope this Ebola outbreak is quickly contained.

  4. Great flow chart – our local resettlement denies that refugees are picked by UN. I begged to differ. It is a matter of semantics. They have all the camps and start the process, we finish the process.

  5. We should have withdrawn from the UN long ago. It is much easier for the globalists to dump third world subversive parasites on us when there is no accountability in our own country. How do we benefit from membership, anyway? as far as I can remember, all they have ever done is caused problems for us, and dictated what we can and cannot do in our own country.
