Machel Endorses ‘Code Blue’ Campaign

Machel adds her voice to a growing campaign to block staff in UN peacekeeping missions from hiding behind immunity when accused of crimes and sexual abuse

Former First Lady of South Africa and Mozambique has added her voice to a growing campaign to block staff in United Nations (UN) peacekeeping missions from hiding behind immunity when accused of crimes and sexual abuse.

Graça Machel has added her voice to a campaign called ‘Code Blue’ that calls on the UN secretary general to immediately waver diplomatic immunity for all mission staff when complaints of sexual exploitation arise.

The campaign launched in New York, is also calling on UN member states to appoint an independent Commission of Inquiry to examine every facet of sexual abuse in peacekeeping operations.
