YEREVAN. – Zhoghovurd newspaper of the Republic of Armenia (RA) writes: Yesterday, Anna Naghdalyan, spokesperson for the RA Minister of Foreign Affairs, stated that the tenure of the UNICEF representative to the RA, Marianne Clark-Hattingh, was terminated due to shortcomings in the implementation of her mandate and non-cooperative work style.
Although reports were spread on the Internet that the now former head of the [UNICEF] Armenia office had spied in favor of Azerbaijan and Great Britain, the RA MFA did not officially confirm it, not speaking about the real reason for the dismissal.
Zhoghovurd daily followed up on this information, and our sources close to the law enforcement agencies reported that the NSS [(National Security Service)] counterintelligence was engaged in the UNICEF representative, but surprising slowness, the information about this was disseminated only four months after the [recent Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh)] war, but it did not become known when the NSS detected her spying
And it is strange why she was not declared internationally wanted, but was only dismissed by the government decision. How did she manage to leave Armenia unhindered? In any case, we do not know where Marianne Clark-Hattingh was during the days of the 44-day war, what information she possessed, why during that she never reacted to Azerbaijan's various atrocities against children, In the case when the protection of children's rights is one of the main missions of UNICEF.
