Macau casino kingpin says NKorea offering Saddam Hussein asylum
A Macau casino mogul has conveyed an offer of asylum from North Korea to Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
Stanley Ho Hung-sun told the Sunday Morning Post that high-level North Korean officials have offered Saddam and his family sanctuary on a mountain in the isolated Stalinist state.
"We have to take any chance to have peace, especially if it comes in the shape of good news from the East," the paper quoted Ho as saying.
"They told me there really was a chance to prevent a war, and said that Saddam Hussein could step down two days before the US and Britain started to bomb and he could call democratic elections."
Ho had no further details of the North Korean offer and said he was unaware whether it had been formally conveyed to Baghdad, where UN weapons inspectors are combing presidential palaces and other official sites to find Iraq's alleged arsenal of weapons of mass destruction.
No reason was given as to why Ho, who in 1999 opened a casino next to communist party headquarters in Pyongyang, was chosen as the conduit for the North Korean message.
The United Arab Emirates on Saturday at an Arab League summit in Egypt called for Saddam to step down to prevent a US-led war from devastating the region.
