Syria has agreed to allow U.N. investigators to question five senior Syrian officials regarding Rafic al Hariri's assassination at the United Nations building in Vienna, Deputy Foreign Ministr Walid al-Moualem said Friday. "The Syrian leadership has agreed to a suggestion by chief of the U.N. investigators committee, Detlev Mehlis, as a compromise, about interviewing five Syrians at the U.N. headquarters in Vienna," al-Moualem told a press conference.
On Thursday, Syrian Foreign Minister Farouk Sharaa' claimed that Mehlis was refusing to cooperate with Syria to facilitate the interrogation of six officers. The Syrian minister accused Mehlis of rejecting Damascus' offer to hold the interrogation at the UN command headquarters located at the Golan Heights and of refusing to sign a protocol to govern the interrogation process.
Well if the U.N. is behind this investigation all is lost.
