MOSCOW, February 25 (Itar-Tass) —— The Russian Foreign Ministry has commented on the “activities” of the London-based “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights”.
“We have noticed that some foreign information agencies, primary Western ones, often refer in their Syrian reports to information received from the so-called “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights” in London,”Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Saturday,February25.
“As far as we know, this organisation employs only two people (head and secretary-translator), it is headed by a R. Abdul Rakhman, who has no training either in journalism or law or even a complete secondary education,” Lukashevich said. “In an interview with mass media in November of last year he said that he is permanently residing in London, has British nationality and is engaged in entrepreneurial activities (owns an eatery).”
“The fact that representatives of the ‘observatory’ have been avoiding contact with our diplomats speaks for itself,” the spokesman said.
“We think that these facts allow one to judge how trustworthy is the information provided by this structure,” he said.
