UN extends Mehlis investigation

October 23rd, 2005 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has extended Detlev Mehlis’s mandate in Lebanon.

It comes after Mehlis stated that the investigation was far from complete.

Annan rejected US calls earlier in the week for an extension of the probe, saying he did not want to see it politicised.

Sa’ad Al-Hariri has welcomed the extension.

    No matter what the Syrians said apparently Mehlis wrote the other side of the story as correct
