Perhaps that's a little harsh on General Duba. As the "father" of Syrian intelligence, I'm sure he's a lovely chap. From the somewhat unreliable DEBKAfile:
Retired General Ali Duba, known as father of Syrian intelligence and loyal aide of Presidents Assad father and son has fled to London from Damascus.

This defection follows the blunt charges leveled against Bashar Assad by former Syrian vice president Khalam Haddam last Friday, and the UN inquiry commission’s demand that the Syrian president make himself available for questioning in the Hariri assassination.
As with all DEBKAfile stories, give this one a week before treating it as even a rumour.

Hat-tip: Charles.
