Mehlis P.I.

"In Hariri's case, it is possible to put suspects on trial."

This is what Detlev Mehlis announced to the press yesterday.
He went on to deny that the UN investigation team which he is heading had named any particular suspect in the assassination of Rafic Hariri on Feb 14 of this year. This is in response to the article published in Le Figaro on Wednesday which claimed that he had named Brig. Gen. Hamdan (head of the Presidential Guard) as the prime suspect during the paper's interview with Mehlis. He urged the media to wait until the investigation is complete, and added that he is hopeful it will be concluded before the Sep 15 extension deadline.

But, in what I perceive as a subtle hint to the direction of the investigation, he had this to say at the end:
"Our objective is to put (the Lebanese) in a position of bringing suspects to trial. I do not want after three months of investigation to merely tell the Lebanese who gave the orders to clean the crime scene."
(Brig. Gen. Hamdan is reported to have ordered the clean up)

From the first day they announced a German investigator was on the case, I expressed my full confidence.

Looks like they won't let me(us) down.

Gotta love 'em!

Close enough to what really happened, we went for Chinese and it was a pleasant peaceful albeit painful stomach situation for me.

I see your a doctor, thats what I'm planning to do with my life. One step at a time though, let's see how premed goes!
