In the last 12 years there have been thousands of allegations of sex abuse against UN peace keepers. 300 involved children. But only a few have served jail time.


The Associated Press uncovered nearly 2,000 allegations of sexual abuse, 300 of which involved children in the past 12 years by United Nations officials and peacekeepers. Including only a few who served jail time.


The names of the guilty are kept confidential. The UN has no legal binding jurisdiction over peace keepers. This makes the countries that "hire" the troops to dish out penalties. So who is really in control here?
There was a Haitian 9 child sex ring where 134 Sri Lankan peace keepers exploited the children for 3 years, 114 of the peace keepers were sent home, no one went to prison.


The investigation found that the names of those found guilty were kept confidential, making accountability impossible.

Exposing that the U.N. itself has no legal binding jurisdiction over peacekeepers, leaving penalties to the countries that hire the troops.

“It’s an indictment of how the whole U.N. system works,” Peter Gallo a U.N. investigator told the AP.

In Haiti alone at least 134 Sri Lankan peacekeepers exploited nine children in a sex ring from 2004 to 2007, according to an internal U.N. report obtained by AP. In light of the report, 114 peacekeepers from Sri Lanka were sent home. None were ever imprisoned or tried for their crimes against the children.


UN Secretary General António Guterres basically said they know about it and are working on it. Oh but he said he won't let anyone cover up these crimes, and every victim deserves justice. That must be why the names of the guilty are being kept confidential.


The report comes a month after UN Secretary General António Guterres, admitted that the organization, “continues to grapple with the scourge of sexual exploitation and abuse, despite great efforts over many years to address it,” RT reported.

“We will not let anyone cover up these crimes with the United Nations flag. Every victim deserves justice and our full support,” U.N. Secretary General António Guterres said.

Still a great story, and I think they should all get
burned before there's a chance to rot.

A relatively small percent of Soldiers tend to rape and pillage when put in high stress combat type situations where they have little or no accountability?!?!!

No way...

Soldiers never commit atrocities and if they do they are almost always prosecuted for it later?!??

Lol

It's a story as old as time...

I would be surprised if that is even a relatively high number when counting atrocities committed in wars..
