UN Must Reinstate Whistleblower Who Exposed Allegations of Child Sexual Abuse: Tribunal

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

A United Nations tribunal on Wednesday ruled that the agency unlawfully retaliated against an internal whistleblower who exposed allegations that French "peacekeeping" troops in Central African Republic had sexually abused children.

Presiding Judge Thomas Laker ordered the UN to immediately reinstate Anders Kompass, the director of field operations for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, who was suspended in April for leaking an internal UN report to French authorities last summer.
