Mehlis can question Showkat and Maher Al-Assad ... in private
In a shock announcement, Syria says it will allow Maher Al-Assad and Asif Showkat to be interviewed in private by the UN investigator.
They are the two members of Bashar's inner circle who Mehlis pointed the finger at for the Hariri murder.
"Mehlis can meet them completely alone, even choose a place in Damascus with a UN flag," Sami Khyami - Syria's Ambassador to London said.
He even suggested that Mehlis would be able to meet Bashar Al-Assad if he wants to.
