Under fire: UN blasts secretary general’s hiring practices 

WHAT: The elite United Nations Joint Inspection Unit has condemned Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for excessive secrecy and favoritism in how he hires and replaces top managers.

HOW: Ki-moon was accused of not informing U.N. member states about high-prestige job openings, making slipshod reference checks and leaving positions vacant for long periods.

WHAT’S NEXT: Ki-moon allegedly stonewalled the investigation. In a rare counterattack, the inspectors urged U.N. member governments to demand to see the withheld information.
