Amid ethics probe, UN appoints acting UNRWA deputy chief
[IsraelTimes] UN Secretary-General António Guterres
...Portuguese politician and diplomat, ninth Secretary-General of the United Nations. Previously, he was the UN High Commissioner for Refugees between 2005 and 2015. He was the Prime Minister of Portugal from 1995 to 2002 and was the Secretary-General of the Socialist Party from 1992 to 2002. He served as President of the Socialist International from 1999 to 2005. In both a 2012 and 2014 poll, the Portuguese public ranked him as the best Prime Minister of the previous 30 years...
appoints a new acting deputy head of the UN agency for Paleostinian refugees and their descendants, whose top management is under investigation by the UN’s internal watchdog over allegations of abusing their authority.

Deputy Commissioner General Sandra Mitchell of the United States resigned in July and denied all allegations in a confidential report by the ethics office of the UN Relief and Works Agency, known as UNRWA.

The report, made public this week by AFP, claims the agency’s top management, including Commissioner General Pierre Krahenbuhl, "have engaged in sexual misconduct, nepotism, retaliation, discrimination and other abuses of authority."

UN front man Stephane Dujarric says Guterres decided in coordination with Krahenbuhl to appoint Assistant Secretary-General Christian Saunders of the United Kingdom as the agency’s acting deputy commissioner general "to support UNRWA and ensure operational continuity."

The UN Office of Internal Oversight Services is currently investigating allegations of misconduct in UNRWA, Dujarric says, and "the secretary-general is committed to acting, as appropriate, once he receives the findings and recommendations."
Another Times of Israel article adds:
Saunders, the agency’s new acting deputy commissioner general, began his UN career in 1989 with UNRWA in Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
Dujarric said he brings over 30 years of experience in humanitarian and international affairs to the job, including in senior management positions. He is currently UN assistant secretary general for supply chain management and previously served as assistant secretary general for the Office of Central Support Services.
