Israel's Channel 10 has broadcast details of corruption at the highest levels of the PA, including millions of dollars stolen from public monies (shelled out by the US) and a sex scandal involving a top Abbas aide.
The whistleblower, Fathi Shabaneh, was actually hired to root out corruption in the PA.
Elder of Ziyon skriver också om hur palestinska myndigheten reagerade med anledning av skandalen:
And how does Mahmoud Abbas handle the news that the scandal was going to be broadcast? Why, he did what he always does: he threatened to resign (in a letter to Netanyahu) if Channel 10 broadcast the report.
And Mohammed Dahlan led a meeting of Fatah officials this morning - not to discuss how to root out corruption, but to figure out how to contain the scandal.[…]
In fact, the Abbas aide who was literally caught naked in bed by Shabaneh's people said on the videotape, "Thank God it’s you and not the Israelis." He was secure in the knowledge that such a scandal will not ever be publicized by the PA.

Sverige har nyligen gett ett direktstöd till palestinska myndigheten, och ger årligen över 700 miljoner kronor. Så här kommenterar Fathi Shabaneh situationen på Västbanken:
“It’s hard to find people in the West Bank who support the Palestinian Authority. People are fed up with the financial corruption and mismanagement of the Palestinian Authority.”
Shabaneh said that many Palestinians in the West Bank have lost hope that the PA would one day be reformed. “The Palestinian Authority is very corrupt and needs to be overhauled,” he said
Det verkar inte ha bekymrat Sveriges regering, som fortsätter att ösa skattepengar över denna korrupta organisation.
