Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. From Sky News:

    Story is here.

    Well, he has a point when the Secretary-General's own son was involved in similar tales of brown envelopes and creative accounting. That said, Sevan has become a byword for a particular kind of corruption in the UN - an organisation hardly lily-white when it comes to investigating or policing itself. It simply isn't good enough to imply that because some people got food, everything else is excusable. In this instance, ends do not justify means.
  2. Well I am familiar with quite a few of the people who are conducting the OFF Investigation.

    I am sure that if there is evidence of corruption they will find it.

    If this guy is guilty of all that he is accussed of - which has yet to be determined I hope he goes to prison for a very long time.

    Meanwhile lets not forget that these is a political element that is determined to use this matter to discredit the entire UN in general and the UNSG in particular.
