The Syrian regime. The Syrian regime, according to the well-informed Al-Hayat correspondent Ibrahim Humaydi, will officially take legal action, NOW, against `Abdul-Halim Khaddam for a financial scandal in which he (and his son) were reportedly paid off to bury nuclear waste in Tadmur back in 1996. But the Syrian regime in 2001 arrested a Syrian, Nizar Nayyuf, and charged him with spreading false rumors against the "kind family" of `Abdul-Halim Khaddam.
