But at UNDP there is no public register to record "gifts" to its many USGs, ASGs, or Resident Representatives. As a matter of fact no Resident Representative or Resident Coordinator report any-longer the gifts they receive while servicing the World Body in a respective country. Many of them also have turned down the minimum financial disclosure required from such positions by UN's Secretary General himself.
So on top of the VIP First Class tickets and double DSAs (per diem), as well as salaries that for USG's like Helen Clark are even higher than that of Hilary Clinton or any European Parliamentarian, these UN high officials can also keep the "gifts" because they serve UN well.
We bet Mr. Stephan Dujarric, UNDP's Spokesperson will call the above a "fanciful statement".
But can Mr. Dujarric prove the contrary? Can Mr. Dujarric point a UNDP database of Gifts that is public and shows all gifts received from Helen Clark and UNDP's ambassadors in 160 plus countries?
