Al Jazeera reports it. Does ABC? Only in Australia.
Fraud and abuse have reached unexpected levels at the UN, an internal investigative unit has said. Investigations are curently being undertaken into about 250 alleged financial and sexual offences, highlighting the scale of possible impropriety afflicting the world body. Inga-Britt Ahlenius, head of the UN office of internal oversight services (OIOS), said in a press conference: "Our caseload has been very steady over the last three months, around 250 cases. "We found mismanagement and fraud and corruption to an extent we didn't really expect."
