Sexual exploitation and abuse in East Timor by UN staff continue

UNMIT reaction to recent media reports about Moon Bar

PRESS RELEASE - UNMIT reaction to recent media reports

Dili, 9 October, 2009 - The United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT) has seen the media report of the alleged presence of UNMIT staff at the Moon Bar in Dili, Timor-Leste during a raid conducted by the Immigration Police. This is one of a number of locations designated as "off-limits" to UN personnel.

UNMIT has a zero tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse. This includes a ban on paying for sexual services and visiting "off-limits" locations such as the Moon Bar.

UNMIT takes appropriate action in all cases where there is evidence of misconduct in accordance with the established procedures.

We request all concerned to share with us all information they may have on this or any case of apparent misconduct by UN personnel. UNMIT’s Conduct and Discipline hot-line remains open.
