Corporate Governance and Ethical Leadership

"There are seven things that will destroy us: Wealth without work; Pleasure without conscience; Knowledge without character; Religion without sacrifice; Politics without principle; Science without humanity; Business without ethics". Mahatma Gandhi. When you evaluate the reasons for the collapse of global companies such as Enron, Tyco, Lehman Brothers, WorldCom, Global Crossing, and Indian company Satyam Computers, it is obvious that there was a complete disregard for ethics in their leaders. There is a need to emphasize ethics to ensure corporate governance.   Corporate governance means how companies can be controlled…

Gossip Reporter’s Death Haunts Chinese Media

BEIJING: On a balmy spring day in the capital city of China, a China Radio International (CRI) employee had discovered a dead corpse lying beside the radio station’s apartment complex. Yan Yinan, co-host of the gossip talk-radio program, China Drive, had died in an apparent suicide. It occurred on a Good Friday, which is three days before Christians celebrate Easter. Suicides in the Asia-Pacific region are not rare, especially for people aged in their 20's and 30's, when some feel as if their personal lives and careers have reached a…

What is Inner City Press?

A news website that claims to conduct hard-hitting investigative journalism on the United Nations faces questions over its credibility and motives. The Inner City Press posts articles with on-the-record quotes by high-level UN officials while exposing shocking details of alleged corruption. This seems relevant for the mainstream media, since there are many rumors and innuendos of rampant corruption at the UN, while officials enjoy diplomatic immunity so they can act with impunity and above the law. Yet, Inner City Press’s sole reporter is rarely mentioned by legitimate journalists when they…

Accountability – Transparency: Deceptive UN Words

Here is another disturbing case of the United Nations lack of Accountability and Transparency. We received this article from a current staff member of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), who requested to publish this article without revealing the identity of the staff member, to avoid reprisal. It is hoped that Mr. Ban Ki-moon, the United Nations Secretary General, will respond to these serious allegations, which if true, the United Nations top management will have a lot to explain. The article is published below: Whether you are a skeptic or…

Mexico and UN Convention Against Corruption

In 2003, the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) was formed, obliging its States Parties to “implement a wide and detailed range of anti-corruption measures affecting their laws, institutions and practices.” These measures were aimed to promote “prevention, criminalization and law-enforcement.” Ironically the Convention was formed in Merida, Mexico. I say ironically, because Mexico, seven years since UNCAC was established, is wearied by years of violence and corruption and is currently amid the throes of one of the worset and most shocking corruption cases the country has ever experienced –…

The former coordinator of Jesuit sexual misconduct investigations, referred to here as Fr. JG, faces allegations that he molested a high school boy in 1971.

Global Recession, Local Corruption

It is hard to believe this story specially in the midst of the global recession that many argue was triggered by the collapse of the housing and financial sectors in the USA, causing high unemployment rates unprecedented since the great depression, in the 1930s, and ravaging many key USA industries including the domestic auto manufacturing and its long chain of suppliers, in addition to further diminishing home values and damaging the housing industry and all its related financial services and products manufacturing for many years to come. Not to mention…

UN Medical Services

Is it possible for a prestigious medical clinic in New York City to exist if many of the hired doctors and registered nurses are not fully trained and licensed to practice medicine in New York State? Actually, "yes." The United Nations Medical Services Division (UN MSD) operates a walk-in occupational health clinic on the fifth floor of the UN Secretariat building in the heart of Manhattan.  Ironically, the Director of the UN MSD, is not a licensed physician in the State of New York.  More shocking, Fox News on April…

UN Performance Appraisal

The United Nations uses several tools to evaluate the performance of its staff, for example, the UN Secretariat uses ePAS (electronic Performance Appraisal System) while UNFPA uses PAD (Performance Appraisal and Development). However, it seems that these tools, especially the PAD system, are just a facade and charade used to promote cronies and to destroy the careers of other staff for various reasons mostly due to the ability of the UN bosses to abuse their authority without accountability. This post shows such alleged abuse of authority and corruption by the…

UN Mismanagement

This is the fourth round of the case we reported under UN Broken Justice, UN Internal Injustice and UN OIOS Inaction. This round shows the mismanagement and corruption inside the UN and how the organization continues to cover it up. These definitions are useful in understanding the case: Appellant is the UN staff member who filed this complaint, OIOS is the United Nations Office of Internal Oversight Services, UNFPA ED is the UNFPA Executive Director, and DSA is Daily Subsistence Allowance, a financial payment that is also called per Diem. The…
