Thank you for bringing this matter to my attention. I am currently on

your e-mail.

Subject: *Confidential: Potential Implications of UNDSS


Dear USG Drennan

Due to the current security climate in Paris and the events this
morning involving the IMF and the injury to a staff member, I firmly
believe now, that the following must be brought to your attention,
regarding potential wrong doing by senior managers of this department
and further implications by one, over the alleged and intentional
wrong doing involving the OUSG/UNDSS. I make the following assertion
as Staff Representative and furthermore, as a staff member of this
department, I will seek specific guidance and direction from the
ethics office, OHRM, Staff Union and OIOS, based on the below and
future action concerning any retaliatory action I might be subjected
to (or have been) as a result of this e-mail and my official
obligation to notify you of this (as a UN staff member) .

In June of 2016, I was deployed to Paris as per the department's
explicit terms of reference and by formal request of the Director
General of UNESCO, Madame Irina Bokova. On completion of the mission,
I was to submit a detailed assessment on the threat profile of the
Director General, Vulnerability Assessment on her office and
residence and an observation report. The report detailed operational
concerns on the UNSMS in Paris to UNESCO and Madame Bokova as
Designated Official for France.

Both reports were shared with the client who fully concurred with the
contents, before formal completion and subsequent submission through
my chain of command i e Director Mohamed Ragaey (TRS) and Mr. Igor
Mitrokhin (Deputy D/DRO) to you. I believe the report was then
subsequently submitted to you after the signed approval of both
reports by my supervisors (see UNDSS routing slip for the reports).

After the reports were submitted, and over a number of months, I

received multiple requests from the client to know of the report's
status. This is while official concerns were made by them on the
continued fluid security environment in France. During the same noted
time frame, TRS received internal STI from UNESCO of the well
publicised and specific death threats to the DG. Again, after
numerous attempts to garner some information on the report's status
to D/DRO Croll (especially after the death threats), I as well as the
client received no response or further guidelines from him concerning
the same.

After almost two months of requests, I, Mohamed and Igor met with the
D/DRO in his office at my request (please see note for file for
further details). During this meeting, I officially make note to you
that Mr. Croll implicated you as giving him direction/orders to
"bury" an official DSS assessment report (Observation Report) for
reasons he gave, as having personal political implications for you,
had Madame Bokova become Secretary-General.

This morning, the client again after today's events (see below e-
mail), has requested the status of the said report- as I have on
numerous occasions requested the same to the D/DRO as is clearly
stated in the above (see attached e-mails). It should also be noted
that lessons learned from the tragedies in both Baghdad and Algiers
were found to be partly caused by the intentional suppression of
UNDSS assessment reports. However they were never suppressed by order
of the head of department, as it has been alleged by the D/DRO in
this instance.

Because of the seriousness of these allegations, especially after
this morning's incident and injuries to the staff member, I am
respectfully requesting that you sir, as head of department, initiate
an independent investigation in to the matter that I have briefly
outlined to you. In order to avoid any conflict of interest,
especially over the implications by Mr. Croll, of your alleged
actions, the investigation should not involve anyone of this
department or anyone that might be known to you or Mr. Croll. I
suggest that OHRM be brought in to this matter in order to determine
the path forward.

Finally, in order to protect both you, your office and the
organization, I make this request based on common practices of the
organization when dealing with such senior members of the
organization, specifically in cases of potential wrong doing
involving security matters.

Dear all

This morning a device placed in an envelope addressed to the head of
office for the IMF in Paris ignited , injuring an IMF staff member -
also a member of the UNSMS and IASMN. TRS has received internal
information that the injured staff member was the security focal
point for the IMF.

It should be noted that TRS deployed an analyst earlier last year to
Paris, at the request of UNESCO, in order to develop an assessment on
vulnerabilities to the Director General and to the UNESCO premises.
TRS submitted an assessment report/Observation report, identifying
this identical threat (IED in parcel/post).

For your further information, please find in the below, internal UN
STI and Member State STI on the incident today in Paris.

International Monetary Fund in central Paris on March 16, slightly

offices. The incident comes a day after a militant Greek anarchist
group known as Conspiracy of Fire Cells claimed responsibility for a
parcel bomb mailed to the office of German Finance Minister Wolfgang

(SBU) SUMMARY: Letters containing explosives have been received by
the German Finance Ministry in Berlin and the International Monetary
Fund in Paris. The Berlin letter was intercepted and defused before
it was opened while the Paris letter exploded when it was opened by
IMF staff, injuring one person lightly. An anarchist group from
Greece with a history of using parcel bombs has claimed
responsibility for the Berlin letter. In 2010, the group, the "SPF"
or "Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei" sent letter bombs to multiple
embassies and EU leaders and offices.

Berlin Letter

(SBU) On Wednesday, March 15, 2017, the mail processing room at the
German Finance Ministry in Berlin discovered a suspicious letter
addressed to the German Finance Minister and apparently originating
from Greece. Upon further investigation by German police, the letter
was discovered to contain approximately 30 grams of fireworks
explosives. It was in a brown envelope with a percussion cap, office
clamp, battery, and clothes peg.

Subsequently, Greek media report that the "Conspiracy of Fire Nuclei"
group, an anarchist organization based in Greece, claimed
responsibility for the Berlin letter.

The Berlin letter's return address was:

Georgiadis Spyridon-Adonis
84 Akadimias str.
