Benon Sevan is winning some Australian coverage:

The former head of the scandal-ridden United Nations oil-for-food program has resigned, accusing the UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, of using him as a scapegoat to save his own political future.

Benon Sevan, who was on a token $US1-a-year contract, left before a report by the former chairman of the US Federal Reserve, Paul Volcker, which is expected to accuse him of soliciting allocations of oil and having unexplained wealth.

When Sevan was goofing about in Australia before the UN was pushed into investigating him, few here seemed concerned. Times have changed.
