>no letter from UN, no int’l interference: outgoing UN resident coordinator

>INTERNATIONAL community did not interfere in any way and the UN did not send any letter that apparently led to the postponement of January 22, 2007 election and declaration of state of emergency, said outgoing UN Resident Coordinator Renata Lok Dessallien.
“International community including the UN did not interfere in Bangladesh’s internal affairs…our only concern was to create a congenial atmosphere conducive to holding a free, fair and impartial election,” The Daily Star cites to be saying during in an interview.
She categorically said the UN did not send any ‘special letter’ to the then Bangladesh government. “There was no interference. There was continuous urge for accommodation,” she added.
Renata, who is going to take up her new assignment in China after more than a three-year eventful tenure in Bangladesh, did not agree with former Army Chief General Moeen U Ahmed’s contention that Bangladesh Army personnel would have lost jobs in the UN peacekeeping mission if the army had played any role in the general election originally slated for January 22, 2007.
“This was never discussed,” Renata added.
