The suspensions had been acceptable “given the seriousness of the allegations of failing to watch the requirements of conduct anticipated of worldwide civil servants,” Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the UN secretary-general, informed the BBC on Thursday.
The UNTSO has “re-engaged in a sturdy awareness-raising marketing campaign to remind its personnel of their obligations to the UN Code of Conduct,” he added. When the video initially emerged, Dujarric informed reporters he was “shocked and deeply disturbed” by it.
Stories in Israeli media recognized one of many males concerned as an officer from Trinidad. The UN has neither confirmed nor denied this.

UNTSO was initially established in 1948, to observe the ceasefire between the newly declared state of Israel and its Arab neighbors. It has in some way remained round even after two main wars in 1967 and 1973 rendered that armistice moot.
