Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has announced a general amnesty for crimes committed "by this day". Pardon also touches the persons convicted of criminal offenses, the RBC reported.


At the same time, citizens convicted of serious crimes will be able to claim only a mitigation of punishment. Thus, the death penalty will be replaced by penal servitude or life imprisonment; penal servitude for life or life imprisonment - by hard labor for a term up to 20 years. At the same time, persons convicted of crimes related to terrorism, as well as criminals who are on the run, cannot claim for amnesty. The latters may count on a pardon by the President in the event of surrendering to the authorities.

Thus, opponents of the current regime fighting against the government forces would not be able to claim for amnesty, since their guerrilla war, under the law, is a form of terrorism.

Meanwhile, according to the BBC, the death toll in the blast a car filled with explosives in a Christian district of Damascus has reached 10 people.

The explosion occurred on October 21, at a time when President Bashar al-Assad met with the UN special envoy Lakhdar Brahimi, who urged both sides to end the bloodshed. According to the authorities, the aim of the terrorist act was a police station.
