Assad's 3000 Emails2012-03-15 14:25
Three thousand emails of the Syrian leader Bashar Assad and his wife got in the disposal of the English edition The Guardian. Assad consulted on how to become a strong leader for his own people, as well as how to bypass sanctions imposed by the Europeans and Americans.
As reported by the IA Gazeta, three thousand emails of the Syrian leader Bashar Assad and his wife got in the disposal of the English edition The Guardian. Assad consulted on how to become a strong leader for his own people, as well as how to bypass sanctions imposed by the Europeans and Americans.
After analyzing Assad's emails, The Guardian states that Assad had regularly appealed for advice on the confrontation with the rebels. In his correspondence, the Syrian president also demonstrates his frivolous attitude toward political reform in the country, calling them "stupid laws on elections, parties and media freedom".
According to the letters, the Syrian leadership tried to bypass international sanctions. Assad used a company in Dubai with an office in London for making his own business, as well as for various personal acquisitions. Thus, Assad had been avoiding the U.S. sanctions with help of third parties who have addresses in the United States, the edition reported.
The emails also reveal that Assad had formed a special group of close advisers. These people used the opportunity to communicate directly with Assad through his personal e-mail - bypassing both members of the leadership of Syria and the security of the country, the RBC reported.
Preparing for the "big" speech in January, the second since the beginning of civil war, Assad had received a lengthy letter from his counselor on communication with the press Hadil Al-Al, who had studied in the United States. She had advised him to use "strong and tough" expressions since "the people needed to feel a strong leader, defending their country". In parallel, she had proposed to allow controlled leakage of information about the state of the national armed forces so that it would have become clear that the government is ready to violent opposition, the edition reported.
