Gherardo Casini auto-nominate himself DESA Representative in Rome/Italy

These days Mr. Gharado Casini is presenting himself in Rome/Italy as the Head of DESA's Office in Rome.

We would like to ask Mr. Sha Zukang the following questions:
- Since when UN- DESA has a representation Office in Rome?
- Based on which bilateral agreement or letter of Intent does this office function in Rome?
- Who gave Mr. Casini the right to nominate this Office as DESA's Representation Office in Rome ?
- Did DESA inform the Secretariat Department of Management on this outpost in Rome and how come the DM has no clue of the existence of this office?
- We would like to ask OIOS if they have ever been able to audit and investigate the operations this UN-Secretariat outpost?
After many journalists asked the Secretariat and DM last week about DESA's Representation in Rome, a DM official (who doesn't want to be quoted for fear of retaliation) responded that as per DM/Secretariat - DESA has no representation in Rome and in no other country in the world for that matter. DESA has only listed one(1) Professional Project Staff in Rome under Parliamentary Project who is a Project Staff and as such has no rights to represent nor speak on behalf of DESA or United Nations unless previously instructed in writing from USG-DESA or Secretariat.

But Mr. Casini, seem so much confident about his title that he has also been able to put up a website called UN-DESA Office in Italy. After inspecting the website of Mr. Casini, we want to ask the following questions to Sha Zukang and Ban Ki-Moon:

- How come a UN official website like (http://www.undesa.it/conferences.htm) is NOT hosted inside the UN servers;
- How come a UN official website like UNDESA-ITALY does NOT follow UN's Information Property rules and regulatory formats put in place at HQs and elsewhere?;
Here is a link to the website of DESA's Representative in Rome - Mr. Gherardo Casini:

to tell you the truth the officers in rome are more than 1... there is for sure an italian paid and brasilian national JPO for the interparliamentary project+ casini+ 1 person for HR selection as the office is responsible for the italian JPOs selections + some team assistant... The office is in the center of Rome, in a building without security and separated from any other UN office present in rome such as FAO, IFAD or WFP...

Kindly keep us posted at the time Mr. Gherardo CASINI is dismissed from the U.N. They all regret, at this point in time, Ms. Maria Zenaide CAPPETTA, i.e., his predecessor! Her motto used to be: honesty and integrity come first!
