Report Issued from Ad Hoc Group - Coll was told he "could not talk to anyone"

Reuters World Bank Panel Finds Wolfowitz Broke Rules

FT Wolfowitz Broke Bank Rules

Washington, D.C., May 14, 2007 - The World Bank Board of Executive Directors received the second report of the ad hoc group on Monday afternoon. In the interests of transparency they published the report and all associated documentation. They will meet with Mr. Wolfowitz at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday as part of their deliberations on the report.

The report finds Wolfowitz guilty of engaging in an actual conflict of interest, and violating the Bank's Code of Conduct and numerous staff rules.

General Counsel Excluded - Coll silenced

"From the time Ms. Riza presented her terms to Mr. Coll (head of human resources) until Mr. Wolfowitz instructed Mr. Coll to accept those terms, neither Mr. Wolfowitz nor Mr. Coll consulted with Bank counsel concerning whether the terms were in the Bank's interest. Mr. Coll states that during his August 10 meeting with Mr. Wolfowitz and Ms (Robin) Cleveland, they told him he "could not talk to anyone" including the General Counsel about his conversation with Ms. Riza. Mr. Wolfowitz has not denied that the General Counsel was excluded from the negotiations. However, he explains that he did not consult with the General Counsel because he considered the General Counsel to be conflicted from providing advice to both the Ethics Committee and management." (Note 47, page 21 )

No Evidence Wolfowitz disagreed with Ethics Committee advice

"Mr. Wolfowitz states that he had disquiet with his understanding of the advice (of the Ethics Committee) but that he nevertheless followed it. The Ethics Procedures make clear that Mr. Wolfowitz could have taken the matter up with the Executive Directors directly if he did not believe the advice he had been given was correct. He (Wolfowitz) has repeatedly claimed that he protested vehemently to the Ethics Committee that he did not wish to be involved, but the Ad Hoc Group did not find any convincing documentary evidence of such a protest. " (Note 84, page 31)

In its recommendations the ad hoc group asks the Board to consider

1. Whether Mr. Wolfowitz will be able to provide the leadership needed to ensure that the Bank continues to operate to the fullest extent possible in achieving its mandate.
2. To undertake a review of the governance framework of the World Bank Group with the aim of ensuring that it is capable of effectively dealing with the challenges raised for the institution. (page 52)

TIME FOR POTSDAM DECLARATION

Just in the event that the US ED will succeed in blocking a decision by the Board as to PW's future to Friday, the following draft declaration is prepared as a statement at the G7 meeting in Potsdam:


(1) DRAFT PROCLAMATION DEFINING TERMS FOR WOLFOWITZ SURRENDER

(1) We - the Executive Directors of the World Bank Group, excluding the Executive Director of the United States, representing the billions of our countrymen, have conferred and agree that Paul Wolfowitz shall be given an opportunity to end his Presidency of the World Bank Group.

(2) The prodigious financial resources of the OECD (except the US), many times reinforced by their resources from middle income and low income countries, are poised to strike the final blows upon Wolfowitz. This institutional power is sustained and inspired by the determination of all the Executive Directors (except the US) to prosecute the campaign against Wolfowitz until he ceases to resist.

(3) The result of the futile and senseless Wolfowitz cronies' resistance to the might of the aroused free peoples of the world stands forth in awful clarity as an example to Paul Wolfowitz. The might that now converges on Wolfowitz is immeasurably greater than that which, when applied to the resisting the Wolfowitz cronies, necessarily laid waste to the lands, the industry and the method of life of the whole Wolfowitz cabel. The full application of our institutional power, backed by our resolve, WILL mean the inevitable and complete destruction of Paul Wolfowitz and just as inevitably the utter destruction of the Wolfowtiz cronies.

(4) The time has come for Wolfowitz to decide whether he will continue to be controlled by those self-willed legal advisors whose unintelligent calculations have brought the Wolfowitz case to the threshold of annihilation, or whether he will follow the path of reason.

(5) Following are our terms. We will not deviate from them. There are no alternatives. We shall brook no delay.

(6) There must be eliminated for all time the authority and influence of those who have deceived and misled the cronies of Wolfowitz into embarking on World Bank Group conquest, for we insist that a new order of peace, security and justice will be impossible until wilful breaches of Bank rules, irresponsible corruption, nepotism and cronyism is driven from the World Bank Group.

(7) Until such a new order is established AND until there is convincing proof that Wolfowitz's crony and nepotisic power is destroyed, points in Wolfowitz's authority to be designated by the Allies shall be reserved to the Executive Directors to secure the achievement of the basic objectives we are here setting forth.

(8) The terms of the ad hoc Committee Report's recommendations shall be carried out and Wolfowitz authority as President shall be limited to the walls of his personal residence bedroom and such minor areas like the bathroom as we determine.

(9) The Wolfowitz cronies, after being terminated and escorted off premises, shall be permitted to return to their homes with the opportunity to lead peaceful and productive lives.

(10) We don not intend that Wolfowitz cronies shall be enslaved as a group or destroyed as a cabel, but stern justice shall be meted out to all criminals and those who wilfuly violated Bank rules, including those who have visited cruelties upon our Bank staff. The Wolfowitz cronies shall remove all obstacles to the revival and strengthening of democratic and rule of law tendencies among the World Bank staff. Freedom of speech, of religion and of thought, as well as respect for the fundamental human rights and Bank rules, policies and procedures, shall be established.

(11) Wolfowitz shall be permitted to maintain such employment as will sustain his subsistence and permit the exaction of just reparations in kind, but not those which would enable him to re-initiate proceedings, legal or otherwise, against the Bank. To this end, access to, as distinguished from control of, food and water shall be permitted. Eventual Wolfowitz participation in gainful employment outside of the World Bank Group shall be permitted.

(12) The occupying forces of the Allies shall be withdrawn from Wolfowitz's office and residence as soon as these objectives have been accomplished and there has been established, in accordance with the freely expressed will of the Shareholders, a peacefully inclined and responsible Leadership for the World Bank Group.

(13) We call upon Paul Wolfowitz and his cronies to proclaim now the unconditional termination of all hostilities by his cronies, and to provide proper and adequate assurances of their good faith in such action. The alternative for Wolfowitz is prompt and utter destruction.

Let's hope that Samy Watson who represents NOT ONLY Canada but the Caribbean and Ireland remembers this:
"Wolfowitz's name was on a controversial Pentagon document that barred companies from Russia, Canada, France and Germany — nations that did not back the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq — from bidding on contracts for postwar reconstruction. It was seen as a vindictive move, counterproductive to repairing strained ties with allies. But the move fit into Wolfowitz's political philosophy — namely, as he told the Atlantic Monthly in 2002, "You do have to treat your friends different from your enemies."

Show some integrity and do not be a puppet of the WH even though Harper wants to replace Blair as the POODLE.POODLE can become POOPOO
