Good evening, Sir. Thanks for writing back quickly even though you
are on annual leave. Also, thank you for reassuring that the issues
raised by Ken will be dealt with in the appropriate manner. Regarding
rumors: yes that is all they are, and I hope that's all they remain.
I have informed those that made these statements to me that if they
have verifiable facts, then, please put them in writing, otherwise
there is nothing that is actionable on my part as the current Vice
President of the UN Staff Union. If anything does come to me in
writing which can substantiate specific claims, I will certainly
bring them to your attention. However, I did feel it was necessary to
inform you of rumors (although only general in nature). As an aside,
I once let rumors go riding for about a year and they did nothing but
fester causing fear and anxiety, as well as foster discontent among
and between staff and toward management. So, again, of course if
anything verifiable arises, I will inform you immediately.

As far as the BOI is concerned, the Staff Union was wondering why it
is taking so long. We know it has to run its course, but it has been
nearly two years since the incident. We always ask for the results to
be made public. Even in the aftermath of the UN House bombing in
Nigeria, perpetrated by Boko Haram, we (all the unions that went to
Nigeria at the time) pressed Ms. Helen Clark to make the results of
the BOI public. The unions attending SMC in April of 2015 also
pressed for public release of future results of other inquiries. It
is what unions do. As we all know, former SG, Ban ki Moon, was at the
top of the accountability framework; and will no longer be held to
account for decisions at that time. So, hopefully, the results of the
BOI will be made public so that the staff at large are made aware of
the findings. I ask this both respectfully and formally.

I have to own what I stated about the survey. It was the first thing
that came to my mind. I misinterpreted our ranking. I should have
stated that we are in the top 5 of the most unethical. Once the
results came out the vibe ''on the street" indicated that morale is
low. (And not just in our department). We are not a horrible
department. We always can seek self-improvement, though, especially
since it is the department which sets the standards and policies for

the security and safety of all the UN staff. Since the creation of
DSS I have felt that we are one department, although it is difficult
to erase years of the "us vs. them" sub-culture. And, yes, there are
some positive comments in the survey.

Again, thanks for responding quickly even though you are on annual.

See you out and about.

Dear Tim

Thank you for this note. Please be assured the issues raised will be
dealt with in the appropriate manner. I note you make a specific
mention of 'rumours' concerning the BOI in response to the suicide
attack in Garowe, Somalia. This is a serious allegation. I request
that if you have any substantive information or evidence supporting
this-allegation that it provided to me as a matter of urgency so that
it may be validated.

In regards to the survey conducted by the staff unions, I have read
the document and failed to see the category 'the worst place in the
Organization to work' and therefore I'm not sure on what basis you
draw this conclusion. I encourage you to read the document and
hopefully place equal emphasis on the positive things said about the
Department in this survey.

Good afternoon, Mr. Drennan. I'm saddened to learn of both the injury
to our colleague and about allegations of Mr. Croll concerning your
stewardship as the USG of DSS. On behalf of the staff at large, I
must indicate that both the Ahtisaari and Brahimi Reports have done
little to curb the Department's and the Organization's apparent
insatiable desire to place staff at risk; as well as the fact that
Boards of Inquiries have met in the past, and that there are rumors
of allegations that some of the information provided to the BOI on
the bus-bomb attack in Somalia, was false, thereby alluding to a
possible cover-up of the real facts.

Concerning the aspect of avoiding a conflict of interest, the staff -
at-large would expect that an independent panel outside the
Department of Safety and Security be convened to investigate the
allegation presented by Mr. Croll. In light of the injury to the
staff member, it (the entirety of the issue) must be shared with the
Administration in the very near future. I'm hopeful that the DDRO has
provided some clarity to you on the issues raised by Ken.

I'm also disappointed on how the Global Staff Satisfaction Survey
results show DSS as the worst place in the Organization to work.
Attached is the survey.

All the best.

UN STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL

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

https://webmail01.un.org/mail/kennedt1.nsf/(%24Sent)/E0696BE381DEFOBB852580EA00773AB6/?0penDocument&Form=h_PrintUI&PresetFields=s_NotesF... 5/11

.ex c:l \J s1ve,
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

the Paris police department said an operation was ongoing at the
offices. The incident comes a day after a militant Greek anarchist

(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.
Attiki Greece

Paris Letter

IMF office, which is 2 kilometers from U.S. Embassy Paris, when the
letter bomb, which the spokesman described as "like a firecracker",
exploded. The assistant to the head of the office (nationality not

envelope. Her life is not in danger, and she is being treated for her
wounds.

(SBU) The World Bank confirmed that the return address on the parcel
that ignited in Paris is the same as the one sent to the German
Finance Minister.
