#1 Looks like they are zeroing in on Kojo as well - For example, an article published in the Times of London late last month detailed contact between Kojo Annan and Hani Yamani, the son of a former Saudi oil minister, in a failed bid for an oil-for-food deal. The paper quoted two unnamed "business associates" of Yamani, who claimed Kojo traveled to Morocco to help finalize the $60 million oil sale which later fell through. Link

#2 phil, I just posted an article about that from Newsday. It appears Kojo is not being 100% cooperative.

#4 "PAUL VOLCKER: Now first and obviously the most disturbing finding is the accumulation of evidence that the Director of the Office of the Iraq Program, Mr Benon Sevan, in fact did repeatedly solicit oil allocations for a small trading company called AMEP (African Middle East Petroleum)."

#5 ...Sevan, whose diplomatic immunity, the U.N. said, won't be lifted unless it's requested by Volcker or a prosecutor...

M'thinks any such lifting will occur within hours- of Mr. Sevan's flight landing in Cyprus.

#6 Seems there is a problem with lifting the diplomatic immunity. He lands in Cyprus.... he's in Cyprus's hands, and they have to give him up for any legal prosecution.
