We do not know whether the officials of the United Nations are either aware or watching. But they definitely should be, if they are at all concerned about the reputation of this leading and most powerful international organization.We say this because we are very concerned that too often and all too consistently, UN peacekeeping forces have been embroiled in sex scandals of the worst kind, involving even very young children. These unscrupulous, wicked UN people, who call themselves, and whom the UN calls, “peacekeepers,” have frequently been involved in the most heinous of sex crimes, molesting children. They have forgotten, neither do they care to remember, that the UN created in the 1940s, not long after its own founding, a whole new organization solely for the care and protection of the world’s children. It is called the UN International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF).Alas! It is these same UN people who go about molesting the world’s children, especially the most vulnerable, the children of Africa. And they do so with impunity—why? The United Nations, from the highest level, it seems, has for decades been bent on covering up its vicious sex offenders and child molesters. We vividly recall how three or more young girls were a few years ago molested by UNMIL personnel. When they were found and sent to court, UNMIL did not rest until they were freed and shipped out of the country. Who knows? Maybe they were later brought back and deployed in other stations to continue the same nefarious practice under cover.We recall, too, what happened last August when a 12 year-old was raped in the Central African Republic, while a 16 year-old boy and his father were indiscriminately killed by “peacekeepers.” There was another incident in that same country involving the molesting of women and children, some of whom were denied food until the “peacekeepers” could have sex with them! Yes, those involved were French “peacekeepers,” and there was a grand cover-up until a whistleblower, fed up with the indiscriminate atrocities against innocent women and children, reported the matter to the UN headquarters in New York. The headquarters’ first reaction was to say that the report had been “prematurely” leaked, until the thing became so foul (offensive) that the headquarters backed off, and a few peacekeepers and some of their superiors were investigated.We recall that it was this same cover-up involving thousands of Roman Catholic priests across many countries in Europe, but especially in the United States, that rocked the church and caused a major embarrassment to many bishops—and The Vatican— who had suppressed the evil behaviors of its priests for decades, until the whole thing exploded.Now here we are, finding this same filth in the very organization that was founded in San Francisco at the end of World War II in 1945 with the sole purpose of restoring peace to the world.Just this past weekend, Radio France International (RFI) reported that a nine-year-old boy in the Gbarnga area was found molested by the same UNMIL “peacekeepers,” who clearly have absolutely no interest in peace, but in patent (blatant) crime against an innocent and hapless Liberian child. How does the UN select its “peacekeepers”? Do they undertake comprehensive background checks? Or are the wrongdoers so entrenched that they consistently employ and give chances to one another?The world must be warned and know that there are some of these international organizations that are infested with many people of deviant behaviors. In this case, women, teenagers or children they come into contact with are at serious risk.Parents, school principals and teachers, student and youth organizations and all concerned organizations and individuals among the Liberian citizenry must beware of the people who enter our borders to engage in “doing good.” We must remember that not all “good doers” are genuine. Many are afflicted with miscreant (criminal-minded) behaviors. The sooner we know this and be on our guard, the better for our children and us.Eternal vigilance should be our watchword.

… says poor people will sufferOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has warned the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For ChangeOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo(APNU/AFC) Government that Guyana’s economy could soon hit rock bottom – a situation that would affect every citizen – and that a well planned out approach is urgently needed to keep this from happening.He made this pronouncement on Wednesday, even as he called on the Administration to “wake up” and acknowledge the problem so that a remedy could be derived.Jagdeo was at the time addressing journalists at the Party’s head office on Robb Street.According to the former President, with the current state of affairs, Government is failing to address the needs of the people.“Things are going to get worse, because we have a Government that is not acknowledging the problem. And if they don’t acknowledge it, they can’t fix it,” the Opposition Leader said.He said there is no doubt the economy will slide further “if these people do not wake up. They can wake up”, he said, continuing that it is not just supporters of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) that are hurting, “all Guyanese are hurting. People are losing their cars, they cannot pay their monthly installments for their cars and homes etc. It’s not a partisan thing, everybody will be affected,” he stressed.Jagdeo reminded of Government’s promise that the just concluded jubilee celebration would have seen a boom in the economy. However, there has been no indication of this.“My argument is that they can arrest this, they can change this, they can change the narrative around the economy. They can change the policies that would promote investments etc. It is within their hands to send the right signal that would say to everybody that it is time that we spend our money,” the former President posited.Jagdeo said he could not understand the logic behind the recent pronouncement by the Finance Minister that there is now a slowdown in the economy because there has been a slowdown in the flow of “drug money”.“I saw the central bank trying to talk up the economy a little bit, maybe following directions from the Minister. But this Minister is confused. Once he says there must be a slowdown, this must be a PPP propaganda. But what slowdown is he talking about?” Then a week later after he was fed some excuse that it is drug money, that its got to be about drug money. So he’s moving from there’s no slowdown to that there is a slowdown, but with drug money.”He said this assertion has caused the President to say recently that most of the huge buildings under construction have some link to illegal proceeds.“So people come to me and I say to them hold on to your money if you have money, because we don’t know where this is going… I would say to businessmen, do not put up another building in the city, because every time you do that and the President drives by, he will think that it is coming from drug money or illegal proceeds, then [Special Organised Crime Unit] SOCU might visit you,” Jagdeo said.According to Jagdeo, while opposition leaders would be happy that the economy is sliding, it is not the same for his Party, since “we want to make sure that the economy keeps sticking.”Meanwhile, Jagdeo took to task the recent statement made by the Finance Minister that any bailout of the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) could affect Government’s ability to pay public servants.“Are they going to pay the public servants, and how much are they going to pay them. That’s the question. Nagamootoo said they had money set aside for over 100 per cent increase in salary for public servants. When those payments will be effected?” he asked.He continued, saying “nobody is fights for the public servants. Many of them thought they had a champion in APNU. The President said some of them are lazy and they cannot expect high salaries. Is this not prejudicial to the negotiation? Is that statement going to be used to give the public servant paltry increases in salary? So when are they going to effect the payout to public servants? he again questioned.“Here is Jordan talking about some bailout of sugar affecting public servants, but he has just exposed the treasury to over 600 million of liability”, the former Head of State said.
