Annan Takes No Action on Aide Who Shredded Papers - Yahoo! News: "UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan decided to take no action against his former chief of staff for shredding three years of files related to the oil-for-food inquiry, his spokesman said on Thursday.

The Independent Inquiry Committee, led by former U.S.
Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, said in its March report that Iqbal Riza, who retired in January, had shredded at least two documents that were not duplicated elsewhere.

But after reviewing the findings in the Volcker report in March, Annan found there was 'no ground for disciplinary action' against Riza, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

Annan, in his own letter to Riza, dated April 19, said, 'While those actions were careless, I do not believe they can be construed as deliberate attempts to impede the work of the Independent Inquiry Committee.'

Riza, a 70-year-old Pakistani, had been close to Annan for more than a decade. He was his deputy when Annan headed peacekeeping operations, from 1993 to 1996. He became chief of staff in 1997, when Annan became secretary-general, and retired in January."
