We share with you a joint letter in which the signatories Syrian organisations, in Syria and abroad, call upon Bashar al-Assad to end Syria sanctions programmes.
March 31, 2021
Dear colleagues and partners,
In 2011, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on the situation in Syria between 15 March – 15 July 2011, stated “The mission found a pattern of human rights violations constituting widespread or systematic attacks against the civilian population…” Following such UN documented violations, in April 2011, Barack Obama signed Executive Orders (EO), starting with EO 13572 imposing specific sanctions against the Syrian government and its leadership, citing human rights violations and continuous violence against protestors. The EU followed suit and imposed its sanction in May 2011.
We share with you a joint letter in which the signatories Syrian organisations, in Syria and abroad, call upon Bashar al-Assad to end Syria sanctions programmes. Engage in the UN agreed political process, end human rights violations and submit to the pillars of genuine justice.
