Mehliss REPORT

MEHLIS TO SUBMIT REPORT TO KOFI ANNAN

German prosecutor Detlev Mehlis is submitting a new report on the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Al-Hariri to the United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan on Sunday.

Mehlis heads the panel probing Al-Hariri’s assassination in a Beirut bombing on February 14, 2005.

The report will be discussed at the U.N. Security Council on Tuesday, but members are expected to be given a copy of the report on Monday, in order to give them time to review the findings ahead of the discussion.

Investigators this week finished questioning five senior Syrian intelligence officials regarding the killing.

The interim report released in October implicated top Syrian security officials in Al-Hariri’s death.

Damascus denies any involvement in the killing.

The Security Council subsequently issued a resolution urging Syria to cooperate with the commission or face “further action.”

Al-Hariri’s killing sparked a wave of popular demonstrations in Lebanon against Syria’s presence there.

Syria subsequently withdrew troops from Lebanon in April, ending a 29-year presence in the country.
