A human rights investigator who claims she was sacked for exposing the sexual abuse of Bosnian women by her United Nations colleagues, told a tribunal that girls as young as 15 were offered for sex," the Daily Telegraph of London reports. "Kathryn Bolkovac, 41, said women were forced to dance naked in Bosnian bars frequented by UN police officers. . . . "The former American policewoman claims she was sacked because she sent an email to Jacques Paul Klein, the chief of UN mission in Bosnia-Hercegovina, which highlighted the sexual exploitation of women by those who had been sent to protect them from the sex trade." Bolkovac was employed by U.S.-based DynCorp, which responded that she was fired for time-card irregularities. Bolkovac denied the charge. Instead, "she said she also found that international staff were helping local police to sell women for the sex trade and she feared this was being 'covered up,'" the Telegraph said.
