Letter to Volcker - Original Oil-for Food Document

Adrian Gonzalez-Maltes, attorney for Oil-for-Food witness Pierre Mouselli whose connections to Kojo Annan were detailed earlier on this blog and elsewhere, has written a lengthy letter to Paul Volcker, Chairman of the Independent Inquiry Committee into the United Nations Oil-for-Food Programme. Dated today May 9, 2005, it begins:

Oh behalf of my client Pierre Mouselli, I would like to draw your attention to the treatement he has received from the Independent Inquiry Committee (“IIC”) in the course of its investigation. Mr Mouselli is particularly concerned that you be informed of these facts in the light of the concerns you mentioned at your press conference on May 6 regarding persons in the investigation whose “lives are at stake.”

The rest of this letter and accompanying documents are available for you to read at the Pajamas Media website. They include information about the behavior of the IIC or of some of its members that should be of interest to all, especially in anticipation of possible testimony by resigned Oil-for-Food investigator Robert Parton before Congressional Committees.

Although several in the media have received this letter or will receive it, we at Pajamas Media believe such documents should be available to the public in their entirety and not taken out of context or redacted. This is a web exclusive as of this moment.
