The UN can't find Kofi Annan's son

The NY Post reported yesterday that Kojo Annan, Kofi Annan's son, is under investigation by a federal grand jury in Manhattan for activities related to the Oil-for-Food program. The story reports his connections to Cotecna SA, which won a $4.8 million contract in the Oil-for-Food program.

But the comical part is this: The UN spokesperson is quoted as saying Kojo Annan "couldn't be reached for comment". Or better yet, Bloomberg news reports that a UN official said he couldn't be contacted because "the UN doesn't have a phone number for him".

Wow. Now there's a dead end if I've ever seen one. No number in the Rolodex.

If this is the type of answer that a Federal Grand Jury gets, I hate to think what faces Paul Volker in his quest for the truth.
