“The organization [United Nations] is quite happy to suppress them [sexual abuse reports] or to deny or try and manipulate the figures to downplay the scale of the problem,” conveyed former UN investigator Peter Gallo.
“Of those 528 [sexual abuse] cases I mentioned earlier, 203 over the last five years have been for either rape or sexual assault.” he denoted.
“How many of those 203 have actually been referred to the national authorities for criminal prosecution?” Mr. Gallo asked. “And the answer was a total of 52, which basically means that even if a UN official is investigated for a criminal offense, a sexual offense, he's only got a one-in-four chance of it ever being referred to the national authorities for criminal investigation anyway.”
