UN investigator Serge Brammertz commends Syria for fully cooperating with the former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri assassination probe

The Brammertz report was submitted to the Security Council Tuesday, March 14. If confirms former earlier debkafile coverage (Assad invites UN investigator “to tea”)
In his first report since succeeding Detlev Mehlis as head of the UN inquiry, Brammertz notes “progress in the critical area of cooperation with Syria” but adds that the commission will judge this cooperation on the merits of information provided and the promptness of requests accommodated.
He says the inquiry has moved closer “to establishing the exact circumstances and modus operandi” of the bombing, but names no new suspects. The Belgian prosecutor will head the UN probe for at least six months. He is also assisting the Lebanese government’s investigations into 14 other terrorist acts committed since October 2004.
