Syria: 'we've co-operated'

Just days before Detlev Mehlis delivers his final report, Syria has claimed that it has fully co-operated with the investigation.

"Syria has fully cooperated with the international commission of enquiry ... to cut the road to those who would try to use this enquiry to political ends against Syria and the region," Syria's Foreign Minister Walid Muallim said.

Mehlis's previous report criticised Syria for failing to co-operate, even though he had announced publicly just days earlier that Syria HAD co-operated.

This time his venom is sure to be stronger: he accused Syria of acting like a communist east European state when it televised Mehlis's only Syrian witness retracting his testimony. Mehlis's previous report relied heavily on that witness.

The goal is to blame Syria no matter what,and Hareri clan will provide the witnesses to justify the report by paying them,retracting the only witness testomony made the hareri clan ,Jumblat ,the US (they did not mention the witness retraction)and Israel angry which will show in Mehlas report,i hope the rusians and the chinese are alert to these manouvers.
