Arab League banned 17 Syrians from Travel

(DP-News - agencies)

CAIRO- An Arab League committee convening in Cairo Thursday listed 17 Syrian VIPs banned from travel to Arab states, including President Bashar al-Assad's brother Maher who commands the military's elite Republican Guard and who is said to be Syria's second most powerful man. Reports indicated that President Bashar al-Assad was not named in the travel blacklist.

The list of names banned from traveling to Arab States, drawn up by a committee commissioned by the League to handle implementation of measures, included the Syrian defense and interior ministers, intelligence officials and senior military officers.


The president’s brother, Maher al-Assad, who was listed, commands the Republican Guard and is Syria’s second most powerful man. Also, President al-Assad’s cousin and Syria’s richest businessman was on the list.
The names and other recommendations will be presented to group of Arab ministers, led by Qatar, who have been handling the Syria file. The ministers meet in Doha on Saturday, the agency reported.
An Arab League committee also proposed stopping flights to and from Syria starting mid-December and recommended exempting wheat and related food items, medicine, gas and electricity from the embargo, the agency reported.

The Arab League, which voted to impose sanctions on Syria for failing to end a crackdown on protesters, has listed 17 people banned from travel to Arab states, including President Bashar Assad’s brother, Egypt’s state news agency said on Thursday.Breaking with decades of inaction against any of its 22 member-states, the Arab League has suspended Syria from the pan-Arab organization and imposed sweeping economic sanctions. Only Syria’s neighbors Iraq and Lebanon voted against the move.

Syria says the League has declared “economic war” with sanctions imposed on its central bank after Damascus ignored demands to end its nine-month crackdown on protests.
