Sevan and Nadler charged with Fraud: Oil for Food

Fox News has an article on the indictments of Kofi's son and another man: Over Bribes From Saddam's Regime. Sevan is facing 50 years maximum time in prison and Nadler is facing 112 years imprisonment.
    Specifically, the two were charged with wire fraud, based on their depriving the United Nations of its right to Sevan's honest services; bribery concerning an organization — the United Nations that receives more than $10,000 annually from the federal government; and conspiracy to commit these offenses.

    If convicted, Sevan would face a maximum sentence of 50 years' imprisonment. Nadler, who was also charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud by engaging in prohibited financial transactions with Iraq and violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, would face a maximum sentence of 112 years' imprisonment if convicted.
It is about time something was done about this. This has been reported about for almost decade. Sevan is thought to be in Cyprus.

Not likely. So let's concentrate on preventing FUTURE such scandals. The UN should adopt a policy of 100% transparency. That would be a good start. Also...

The UN cannot do that, because they have too many thugs in there all for their own purpose. I hate that organization. They rape more children and allow more people to be killed than anyone.

We should set up a group that has only republics that are represented by their people. (Hint: democracies are not. They are mob rule.) I could back something like this with your ideas incorporated.

The first sign of genocide? We go in and squash it. We help the weak, not the poor. The poor countries are usually that way because of their government's corruption. Mind you, I'm referring to the governments, not the people. We could help the people. It would have to be well worked out before I could sign up to anything that threatens my country's sovereignty. Ya know? :)
