LEGAL WARNING FROM PRESIDENT ASSAD’S FATHER-IN-LAW #Syria
Sunday March 25,2012

PRESIDENT Assad of Syria’s father-in-law, Dr Fawaz Akhras, who had the temerity to send me a legal warning about my article on his involvement in the present crisis, is under increasing pressure over his defence of Assad’s murderous regime.
Now the British Syrian Society, which Dr Akhras founded, is in trouble. Its co-chairman Sir Andrew Green, a former British ambassador to Syria, admits the society is in disarray and the e mails were the last straw. he said: “In light of the recent revelations, the five British board members have resigned.”
Meanwhile Dr Akhras is on leave from his consultancy, and his secretary tells me she is “not sure when he’s coming back”. hopefully he’s gone to Syria to use his medical skills to help citizens whom the president’s thugs have tortured
