UN demotes Singapore official

Posted by jtsmyth8 on October 19, 2007

After 21 months of being investigated for fraud and corruption, United Nations Assistant Secretary-General Andrew Toh, who is Singaporean, has this week been demoted to director and denied two months of his salary.

The rub is that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon is punishing him thus although two UN administrative tribunals have unequivocally cleared him of any such wrongdoing.

Sources said a demotion at the UN is very rare, and those demoted must have done something grave like misjudged a situation, resulting in the UN losing millions of dollars.
