Damascus – Syria’s highest political body, the National Progressive Front, on Sunday rejected a UN report implicating Damascus in the killing of former Lebanese premier Rafiq Hariri as a distortion of the truth.
The report drawn up by German judge Detlev Mehlis is “full of contradictions and has distorted the truth and the facts,” said the Front, which groups eight parties headed by President Bashar al-Assad’s Baath.
Could Syria be lying? Sure. But we’ve already been down the UN report raod which proven to be falso, haven’t we?
Iran on Saturday called for a more documented final report on the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, voicing hope that the case should not be used for political objectives.
