Oil-for-Food and Overseas Accounts
Why am I not surprised about this? Roger L. Simon has provided extensive coverage of the oil-for-food scandal at the U.N. Today, he points to a story in the Telegraph:
Investigators in the Iraqi oil-for-food scandal have discovered a network of overseas bank accounts operated by Benon Sevan, the former head of the United Nations programme, who is the subject of a criminal inquiry by New York prosecutors.The plot sickens.
Officials from investigative agencies, including the UN's Volcker inquiry, say that Mr Sevan has accounts in his native Cyprus, Turkey and Switzerland.
