33 member "white list" by 2005

04-10-2003 08:48

As the pigscum Blunkett pretends to ease on the onslaught for the national ID card (looks as if the timing is wrong again while the party political organs shout democracy) here comes the next wave.
EU as an explicit response to 9/11 events in NY has produced two draft regulations.

Solidarity campaign -Stop deportation of Komi Akalo from Germany to Togo!

04-10-2003 00:18

But despite all my criticism against the Togolese Government and the dangers that I am certain to face if forcibly sent to Togo, the VG Gera (Administrative Court) has not recognized my application for asylum.

Iraq and WMD

03-10-2003 13:40

I cannot emphasize too strongly that the Interim Progress Report, which has been made available to you, is a snapshot, in the context of an on-going investigation, of where we are after our first three months of work. The report does not represent a final reckoning of Iraq's WMD programs, nor are we at the point where we are prepared to close the file on any of these programs. While solid progress - I would say even remarkable progress considering the conditions that the ISG has had to work under - has been made in this initial period of operations, much remains to be done.
