Assad approves law to penalise illegal entry

Jun 25 2013, 7:00pm CDT | by

Damascus, June 26 (IANS) Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has approved a law that would penalise illegal entrants to Syria to several years of imprisonment, state-run SANA news agency reported.

Damascus, June 26 — Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has approved a law that would penalise illegal entrants to Syria to several years of imprisonment, state-run SANA news agency reported.

Whoever enters Syria illegally will be either imprisoned from one to five years or fined by five to 10 million Syrian pounds (around $25,000 to $50,000), the report said.

The law was approved just a day after the Syrian parliament approved a draft law that toughened the penalty to life imprisonment against illegal recruitment of minors in the current civil war in Syria. The penalty could reach execution if any of the children die, Xinhua cited the report as saying.

The Syrian government has for long accused foreign countries of facilitating the flow of armed rebels into the country and said that armed opposition groups recruit children in their fight against government troops.

Around 93,000 people have been killed in the conflict that began in March 2011, according to UN estimates.

TEL AVIV – Israel, at great cost, believes it has destroyed the complex tunnel network built by Hamas to smuggle arms and other contraband into Gaza and send suicide bombers into the Jewish state, but the possible existence of a similar and perhaps even greater underground system remains a threat to its national security.
