The deputy head of the U.N. agency for HIV/AIDS will not seek to renew his term in office though it is not reasonable to link his departure to a sexual harassment allegation that proved unsubstantiated, a spokesman said Friday.Forty allegations of sexual exploitation and abuse were made during the last three months of 2017 against U.N. peacekeeping missions, agencies, funds and programs as well as implementing partners, the United Nations said Thursday.Mahalingam said it was not reasonable to link Loures' departure to the harassment allegations but that UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibe had accepted the Brazilian national's decision not seek to renew his term, which expires at the end of March.
