Syria Complains of Golan Cover Up, Ladsous, Summoned by Malcorra

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive

UNITED NATIONS, May 30 -- On Syria, while UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is in New York it is his chief of staff Susana Malcorra who has summoned Syrian ambassador Bashar Ja'afari to meet this morning, topics undisclosed.

Inner City Press was exclusively informed about that meeting, and also that Ja'afari has written to Ban and to the Security Council to complain about the recent briefing by Ban's Middle East envoy Robert Serry. The complaint is that Serry didn't address the Golan, nor the repeated kidnapping of UN peacekeepers there by the Martyrs of Yarmouk Brigade and, Syria says, Qatar.

Last week, Inner City Press published a portion of the Syrian mission's May 22 letter to Herve Ladsous' Department of Peacekeeping Operations.

As noted, and complained about by the Free UN Coalition for Access, Ladsous only disclosed the most recent kidnapping in a "conversation" with friendly journalists.

Ban's Office of the Spokesperson has refused Press requests to know Ladsous' response; on May 29, Ladsous openly refused to answer any Inner City Press question, video here.

So what is Malcorra's topic? Watch this site.
