New York - Nicola Baroncini was charged in June 2009 with third-degree assault for allegedly biting a guard working for the United Nations who had escorted the individual after he complained about being passed over for a position that went to an official’s daughte
In June 2009, 38-year-old Nicola Baroncini was passed over for a position that later went to a daughter of a high-ranking United Nations official. The former UN employee said he was showing another official an e-mail from Doss, which showed that Doss was using his status to gain employment for his daughter.
When he went to complain about Alan Doss, a former UN Undersecretary General and Special Envoy to Congo, a UN guard escorted him out. He then allegedly began to bite the guard.
Furthermore, Baroncini said he was defending himself against the three UN guards when they used pepper spray and began to allegedly beat him.
Baroncini was offered a deal to plead guilty to a lesser degree charge of harassment, however, he declined it and said: “I want the case to go to trial, so I can have my say and show how people are hired at the UN.”
According to Reuters, a New York judge dismissed the case after Baroncini served and completed two days of community service and an anger management course.
