Kofi's Son Recovers His Lost Memory

He purportedly told a friend he became involved in talks to sell the oil to a Moroccan company in 2001, and is said to be cooperating now with investigators delving into the program.

In December, Kojo Annan had issued a written statement to CNN, denying any such dealings.

“I have never participated directly or indirectly in any business related to the United Nations,” his statement read.

In light of the disclosure, a California-based group leading the effort to get the U.N. out of the United States is calling upon both Kofi and Kojo Annan to testify before U.S. congressional investigators regarding their roles in the oil-for-food scam.

“U.N. officials have become vampire-like in their fear of the light of truth,” said Melanie Morgan, co-chairman of Move America Forward. “Well, it is time for them to stop running and hiding and face accountability for their corruption and attempts to cover it up.”


Paper admits libel of Annan’s son

Britain’s Sunday Times newspaper has agreed to pay damages to Kojo Annan, the son of the UN secretary general, after backing down in a libel case.

The paper had alleged that Mr Annan was involved in oil trading linked to the discredited Iraqi oil-for-food scheme.

A UN-ordered independent inquiry recently… investigated the allegation made by the Sunday Times - that Kojo Annan was involved in negotiations to sell two million barrels of Iraqi oil to a Moroccan company in 2001 - and found no evidence to support it.
