Corruption Inside the United Nations
For decades the United Nations has been portrayed as playing a vital international role in addressing economic, social and humanitarian problems. In this presentation, Peter Gallo will give a first-hand account of the abuses, corruption and lies he witnessed as an employee. He will show how the corruption is so deep-rooted that the UN is an unreliable source of information; that "peacekeeping" serves primarily to prolong conflicts and suffering, and that "human rights" is the ultimate perversity used to legitimize oppressive regimes. His experiences show us that US tax dollars are financing the most abhorrent crimes against the most vulnerable people in the world, and that the UN is not only bad for the US, it has become a malevolent organization that needs to be put out of business. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, Peter Gallo is a qualified lawyer admitted to practice in three countries and holds a Master's Degree in International Criminal Law. He spent 19 years as an investigator and leading authority on money laundering in Hong Kong. In 2011, he was recruited by the United Nations as an investigator in the Office of Internal Oversight, Investigations Division in New York. After his experiences there, he became an outspoken critic of the corruption in the UN and testified before a Congressional Committee on the lack of accountability and the organization's failure to address the widespread abuses in peacekeeping missions.
