A middle-ranking official of the UN was accused of sexual abuse nine months after a UN contractor filed a complaint against him was reported by the New York Police Department (NYPD) on Wednesday.

Dushyant Joshi, who worked on the computers in the human resources department  to prepare and support emergencies of the UN, was arrested Tuesday, said a police officer.

Joshi did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the fact.

He was charged with third-degree sexual abuse, police said. According to the New York criminal code the maximum penalty for third-degree sexual abuse is three months imprisonment.

Joshi’s arrest came nine months after a woman who worked as a UN contractor filed a complaint against them through the internal justice system of the entity and eight months after it said it had filed a complaint with the police.

In a copy of the complaint made to the UN, accused of kissing and touching Joshi to forcibly employed in a bar near the UN headquarters in Manhattan on June 3, 2011.

On 5 June, the secretary general of UN human resources, Catherine Pollard, said the woman, whose contract ended in December, through a letter that Joshi would be subject to disciplinary action.

Reuters obtained a copy of the letter of Pollard, who said that Joshi denied the allegations of sexual abuse.

The UN spokesman, Martin Nesirky said it could only talk about the UN investigation, not on any actions taken by the NYPD.
