The central witness in Mehlis report is a condemned cheat

The credibility of one of the key witnesses in special
investigator Detlev Mehlis report on the Hariri murder
case is in doubt. Suheir Sadik is a multiply convicted

Hamburg -- The alleged intelligence agent al-Sadik, 42, on
whose testimony a considerable portion of the
investigation is based, has been convicted of ,
embezzlement and fraud, among other crimes. Even within
the UN Commission investigating the murder of Lebanon's
former Prime Minster Rafik al-Hariri, which presented its
report on Thursday, there is doubt of the credibility of
the Syrian witness.

Sources within UN circles say that Sadik had undeniably
lied. At first he had claimed to have left Beirut in the
month prior to the deed. Then, at the end of September he
admitted to having been involved in the implementation of
the assassination. Apparently Sadik had received money
from a third party for his testimony. According to a
statement by his brother, Sadik had called him from Paris
in late summer and said I've become a millionaire!

The skepticism is also nurtured by the fact that the
contact to Mehlis was initiated through the Syrian
dissident Rifaat al-Assad,, an uncle of President Bashir
al-Assad, who opposes the regime in Damascus. Sadik is
supposed to have made his apartment in the Beirut suburb
Chalda available for several preparatory meetings in which
Syrian intelligence officers participated. Sadik himself
claims to have collected information for Syrian
Intelligence in Lebanon's Palestinian refugee camps.

The Syrian administration had already made a dossier with
incriminating evidence about Sadik available to Western
governments weeks ago, which was to show that Mehlis had
been had by a notorious Syrian swindler. This is the
report on the basis of which Bush is trying to topple the
Syrian government.
