Ex-head of U.N. Palestinian refugee agency denies wrongdoing amid misconduct probe

The former head of the United Nations' Palestinians aid agency who resigned in the face of an inquiry into misconduct allegations has denied wrongdoing and said his agency was victim of a political campaign.


Commissioner-General Pierre Krahenbuhl, a Swiss diplomat, was replaced on Wednesday pending completion of a review of "management-related matters" at the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) said.


"I have rejected these allegations from the start and will continue to do so," Krahenbuhl said in an interview with Swiss broadcaster RTS on Wednesday evening. "There is no corruption, fraud or misappropriation of aid."
