Would it interest you to note that the UN doesn’t actually have a paid intern programme

You may recall Golriz Ghahraman could not remember on Larry Williams radio on Monday about how she ended up as an intern for the defence team and suggested the UN may have assigned her.

It might interest readers, and those journalists who care about a lying MP embellishing her CV, that the UN does not have an intern program for the defence team. It only has one for prosecutors.

There is even a recruitment video about it that is lying around in a dark corner of the internet called Youtube.   

The accused hires a counsel from a pool of lawyers that have passed a check on qualifications and a police check for criminal convictions. There is means tested legal aid paid by the UN for these independent contractors.

It is absurd to suggest that either the court or the prosecution can allocate staff to the defence team.

If the court or the prosecutor hires members of your defence team, that defence team obviously compromised fatally.

The lead counsel may choose to run his own intern program. UN interns are unpaid, pay their own airfares and travel insurance and are specifically told they are on their own if there is an accident.

You must choose which side you intern for and are more likely to get a job in the defence team because the jobs are odious. The interning for the prosecution would be more competitive.

So for Golriz Ghahraman to claim she was in a paid intern role appointed by the UN is a false claim. Yet another one. She would have been hired, both in The Hague and in Tanzania by the lead defence counsel.

While we are speaking about legal teams, Golriz Ghahramen also claimed in her maiden speech that:

I remembered, getting notes and emails from my female interns, especially of minority backgrounds– telling me over and over again how much it meant to see someone like them forge that path. Some of them are carrying that mantle today. I realised then that it was important for that process to have victim of governance by repression and mass murder stand up in those courtrooms, mostly dominated by Western men. Representation matters.

Which is just her inherent racism against white people disguised as virtue-signalling, and more importantly is a lie as well that is proved by her own Facebook photos:

Note that she is the palest person in the photo. There isn’t a single Western man in that photo. This is just more of her mis-truths, lies and falsehoods designed to make her sound like she had far greater role in these tribunals than she has led us all to believe.

Make no mistake, we are going to uncover the rest of her misleading statements and right now I am aware of investigations being undertaken in Iran and in Cambodia.

So far not a single one of her statements are wholly true. Sure, there is a little bit of truth in them, but by and large they are falsehoods. We will get to the bottom of them.
