Awareness Times is investigating report of Physical & Verbal Assaults on a very senior staff of the UN Mission in Sierra Leone which unconfirmed reports state might have occured inside the Living Room of the UNSGs Representative in Sierra Leone, Michael Von Der Schulenburg. Whilst the victims name has not been officially released, we have learnt that the victim is a highly placed member of staff assigned to the security wing of the mission. The temper tantrums of Schulenburg have led UN Staff to varying describe Mr. Schulenburg as a German Hitler whilst some others believe that because of his height, he is not really to be called a Hitler so they nickname him as The Russian Stalin whilst still some others simply call him the local Mike Tyson. We are investigating the issue which has reportedly already found its way to New York Headquarters as a formal complaint. Meanwhile, here follows a short article on the issue from Americas Inner City Press internet website.

Schulenburg & His Boss

-START OF INNER CITY PRESS REPORT-

UNITED NATIONS, April 17 -- UN representation in Africa is riddled with abuse of power. Beyond the misconduct of Alan Doss in the Congo, confirmed this week by the Office of Internal Oversight Services, Inner City Press has learned that Michael Schulenburg, the Secretary-General's Executive Representative in Sierra Leone, has been formally accused of physically abusing a staff member. Sources from various parts of the UN system have brought this to Inner City Press' attention, as another example of the UN's abuse of Africa.

- END OF INNER CITY PRESS REPORT -

This is the same Inner City Press which Schulenburg told last year that "only one journalist" in Sierra Leone disliked him and all the others "love" him. When he came back, he decided to use from the Peacebuilding funds on SLAJ thinking that will save him from criticism. However, patriotic journalists cannot hide the fact that there is a lot of bad blood flowing within the UN mission sent to our country with Schulenburg who is seen as a terror by many UN staff who quietly grumble to Awareness Times that he has been even nicknamed as The German or Hitler or The Russian or Stalin. Stay tuned as we dig in deeper for more on this alleged violent act that reportedly involved holding one high-level UN staff by the scruff of his neck collar, like a sick puppy, pushing him out of Schulenburg's living room into the Cabenda Hotel grounds and then asking the local security staff to take over where he left off. With such bad blood flowing, is our country getting the full benefit of UN presence? This is the million dollar question!
