Read on for our continued coverage on Lisa Svensson.

Norway Today has been researching Lisa Emelia Svensson‘s alleged connection to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell since an email that seemed to name Svensson was released by a U.S. court.

You can find our deep dive on the situation here.

Employment discrepancies found

During our coverage of the alleged Epstein emails, we reached out to some of Svensson’s employers.

We found a few discrepancies.

Contrary to her personal LinkedIn page at the time, it appeared Svensson was never a “Director” for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and that she wasn’t carrying out any functions for the UNEP since 2019.

The LinkedIn update

Following our latest article on Svensson and the UNEP, Svensson changed her LinkedIn profile to more accurately reflect her position with the United Nations.

Before our article, Svensson’s LinkedIn headline read “Global Director for Ocean, United Nation Environment”, with Kenya as her location.

Under her Experience section, she was listed as “Director Ocean and Marine Programme” at United Nation Environment in Nairobi, Kenya, from Sep 2016 – present.

This has been updated in October 2020.

Now, her headline reads “PhD, Ambassador” with France as her location.

Under the Experience section, her UNEP job now reads “Coordinator (D1) Marine and Coastal Ecosystems Branch” at United Nation Environment Programme in Nairobi, Kenya, from Sep 2016 – Aug 2019.

So, Svensson’s LinkedIn has been updated to reflect the proper title (confirmed to us by the UNEP), over a year after she seems to have taken leave.

The location for the position is still listed as “Nairobi, Kenya” – though we have confirmed that Svensson was permitted to work from Europe for some time during her role as Coordinator.

  1. I hadn’t thought of Norway Today for investigative journalism.

    Impressive.
