Campaigners Urge British PM May To Intervene In Alleged Mishandling Of UNAIDS Sexual Harassment Claims

The Guardian: Theresa May urged to demand top U.N. official quits over harassment crisis
“Female whistleblowers and global HIV activists have urged the British government to demand the resignation of a senior U.N. official over his alleged mishandling of serious sexual harassment claims. The high-profile group of campaigners, which includes Martina Brostrom, who maintains she was sexually assaulted by a former U.N. assistant secretary general while she worked for UNAIDS, wants Theresa May and the Department for International Development to intervene over the conduct of the agency’s executive director, Michel SidibĂ©. The U.K. will chair the organization’s programming board when it meets in Geneva in June…” (Beaumont, 6/1).
