The United Nations has identified and suspended another staff member without pay over his alleged involvement in a recent viral sex video in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The UN announced the suspension of two employees involved in the video, which went viral on social media in June earlier this month.
The 18-second video revealed a couple having sex in the back seat of a clearly marked UN car in the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv.
The disclosure was made by Mr. Farhan Haq, the Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary-General.
He confirmed the news during the daily news briefing held virtually on Monday, July 27, saying: “A third male international staff member who was in the UN vehicle in Tel Aviv has also been identified as having engaged in the alleged misconduct”.
He noted that the staff member has been placed on Administrative Leave Without Pay, pending the results and conclusion of the ongoing OIOS (Office of Internal Oversight Services) investigation.”
