Oil For Food: A head rolls

Posted by: Hammer / 11:06 AM

BBC reports:
United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan has sacked a senior official accused of serious misconduct over Iraq's oil-for-food programme.

Joseph Stephanides, who is alleged to have steered a lucrative contract to a British firm, is the first UN employee sacked over the scandal.

Mr Annan concluded that Mr Stephanides, of Cyprus, had breached UN staff procurement rules, a spokesman said.

Mr Stephanides, 59, rejected the charges and said he planned to appeal.

Although Stephanides had been implicated back in February, Smilin' Norm Coleman has never made him a target of his UN-quisition.
