Gaza Construction Funding “Incorrectly” Handled, UN Report Finds

10

israel-gazaAn internal UN audit report reveals that a UN Development Program office that funds and monitors spending on construction in Gaza allowed at least five non-staff contract employees to handle “core” procurement processes that only staffers are supposed to handle, including those for ordering up “significant” civil construction activities. Moreover, the report says the UNDP office: “was not monitoring and recording actual work” performed by these individuals.

Moreover, the Palestinian program office was not properly keeping track of expenditures or receipts in the financial system. “This practice increases the risk of paying for goods that are not delivered.” The findings point to a possible black hole in the supervision of civil construction, and perhaps other programs in Gaza.

The report adds credibility to Israeli accusations that internationally-managed relief supplies to Gaza were diverted into construction of attack tunnels.

  1. DONT WORRY, THE MONEY WILL BE STOLEN/DISSAPEAR EITHER WAY.

    NOW IF A JEW OVERSEES THE PROJECT, HE WILL GET IT WHOLESALE FOR 25% OF THE PRICE

  2. The UN handled this “incorrectly” on purpose, of course. As Gevald commented, this was the plan. No one was being naive. They knew just what was going on and looked the other way.
