UN withholds from publication LPDF bribery section of its report
By Sami Zaptia.
London, 17 March 2021:
The United Nations has chosen to withhold from publication the section in its Panel of Experts Report on the bribery allegations at the Geneva Libyan Political Dialogue Forum (LPDF) process.
The full 500-page plus report said the section on the bribery allegations ‘‘is kept for the confidential annex of the report’’ and that it ‘‘does not envisage any further reporting on the issue.”
The move is controversial, seemingly choosing political expediency over transparency, accountability and the full legitimacy and credibility of the newly installed Libyan government, the Government of National Unity.
