UN Corruption 

Financial Times:

United Nations staff are dissatisfied with procedures to deal with corruption within the organisation and fear reprisals if they report offences, an internal UN report has found...

"According to the survey, staff generally perceive that breaches of integrity and ethical conduct are insufficiently and inequitably addressed by the disciplinary system," Mr Annan wrote. "At the same time, they voice concern about the consequences of "whistle-blowing" or reporting on misconduct, and uncertainty about the mechanisms for such reporting."

Another strong perception among staff, Mr Annan said, was that "integrity and ethical behaviour are not taken sufficiently into account in selection, promotion and assessment processes".
Gee, you don't say...
