Sexual Harassment Complaint Against UN Official In Bihar

United Nations Population Fund's India Chief Diego Palacios is under fire from the architect of 'Bandhan Tod' campaign Prashanti Tiwari, who has levelled some serious allegations of "sexual advances" against him.

The victim was working as Bihar state manager for Patna-based Gender Alliance, an initiative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which had launched the Android-based app named 'Bandhan Tod' in September last year to sensitise people across the state against dowry, child marriage, domestic violence and gender inequality. Breaking her shackles, the victim revealed that she had been facing "sexual harassment" at the hands of Diego since March 2017 and her fight continues ever since. She claimed that she was removed in February, 2018 as she did not give in to the pressures and demands made.The single mother, who was leading the Bandhan Tod campaign, has taken on the United Nations in a fight for justice through the Ministry of External Affairs.

In her letter to the MEA, she had demanded that the immunity Diego enjoys under the UN body, be waived off so that it paves way for her to try him in Indian courts for Fair Investigation.

Let's Come Together To Support The Campaign Against Sexual Harassment & Demand Action To Be Taken Against Diego by Waving His Immunity And Call For Fair Investigation.
