UN agency executives,'dodge Insider subscription fee'

Nunes

 ROME -- FAO senior economist Paolo Lourenco Dias Nunes and senior executives of the WFP, FAO, IFAD and UNESCO are among UN agency executives and diplomats who have failed to upgrade their subscriptions to the Italian Insider's modest diplomatic\institutional subscription rate despite repeated requests to pay the correct fee, the newspaper's subscription department says. Rein Paulsen, Director of the FAO office of emergncies and resilience, continued using an FAO subscription after it expired, ignoring repeated requests to renew his subscription and regularise his access to articles under the Insider paywall.

 The FAO Representative in Mongolia Vinod Ahuja ignored repeated requests to pay his subscription at the correct rate as did H.E. Nolasco and Maria Turco, a security specialist at the World Bank .  Also ignoring the request to subscribe at the correct rate were Advit Nath, director and controller of IFAD 'responsible for integrity and transparency in accounting' and Benoit Thierry, IFAD rep. for Senegal and director for West Africa. Another recalcitrant non payer is Mawira Chitima, an IFAD country director and head of the SSTC and Knowledge Centre at the UN agency. 
 Also not paying at the correct rate despite repeated requests was Clark S. Judge, of the White House Writers Group, Cornelia Moussa, HR director at IDLO and Roland Kassab, FAO Head of Operations in Nairobi. Diplomats from South Korea, Switzerland, Romania and China also are among envoys who have failed to upgrade their subscriptions to Italian Insider’s modest diplomatic subscription rate despite repeated requests to pay the correct fee, the newspaper's subscription department says.
 
 Romanian emissary Vlad Mustaciosu from Bucharest’s embassy to the FAO, and Shen Hong, a second secretary in the Chinese ministry of foreign affairs in Beijing, are among those who have so far ignored requests to pay the correct rate, the department added. Belgium’s ambassador to the FAO also has failed to respond to repeated requests to renew at the correct rate.
 
 A number of diplomats and Embassies in the Eternal City are turning a deaf ear to requests to pay the Italian Insider diplomatic subscription rate while others have paid the correct amount for access to specialized articles on the UN Food agencies and other exclusive material on the digital newspaper, Insider sources say.

 

  Embassies whose ambassadors or diplomats have signed up as non-diplomatic subscribers at a minimal rate are urged to upgrade to the correct amount of just 575,00 per annum as per the price list posted on the home page of the Insider digital newspaper at the following link
