14 June 2016 - Latest News about WIPO
The situation at WIPO has become extremely alarming for staff. After having fired the President of the WIPO Staff Association in September 2014, the WIPO Director General is now leading efforts to destroy the duly elected WIPO Staff Council and replace it with a more compliant management-friendly model. At the same time WIPO Member States are still struggling to obtain a copy of the OIOS investigation report which contains the findings of the investigation into allegations that the WIPO Director General corrupted an IT procurement process and was involved in the theft of staff members’ personal effects for DNA analysis without their knowledge.
The WIPO Staff Association has denounced the Director General’s illegal interference in the staff’s right to manage their own affairs in regard to staff representation as well as the Director General’s retaliation against the duly elected Staff Council for its whistleblowing activities.
More information on the WIPO situation is available via the below links:
