Kofi Annan son admitted to scandal


[Media Source*]

Hat tips to The Crusader for this one. It appears that the son of Kofi Annan has admitted to having "dealings" in the Oil-for-food program in Iraq.
THE son of the United Nations secretary-general has admitted he was involved in negotiations to sell millions of barrels of Iraqi oil under the auspices of Saddam Hussein.

Kojo Annan has told a close friend he became involved in negotiations to sell 2m barrels of Iraqi oil to a Moroccan company in 2001. He is understood to be co-operating with UN investigators probing the discredited oil for food programme.

I can hear the calls for Kofi's resignation now...

But their is more to this story.
Several senior UN staff are alleged to have profited from the scheme, and the apparent connection between Kojo and the programme has become the subject of intense international scrutiny. Critics claim that Kofi faces a significant conflict of interest if Kojo sought to profit from the discredited scheme.

Potentially more serious is his connections with Hani Yamani, the son of Sheikh Yamani, the wealthy former Saudi oil minister who set up Opec. Kojo acted as a director for Hani Yamani’s company and was a close business associate. The pair represented the coming together of two of the world’s most influential families.


I give Kofi Annan 6-12 months. Any longer and it will prove that the U.N. is as unreliable as The Diplomad says it is (and they work with the U.N. too!). Selah!
