A four-day cease of fighting in Syria

2012-10-26 11:46

Temporary armistice between the Syrian army and the rebels took effect on Friday.


According to the BBC the initiative to introduce armistice between the parties on the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha belongs to the UN special envoy Lakhdar Brahimi.

Syrian state television has reported that the army stops fighting starting from the Friday morning until the following Monday. However, the state forces have reserved the right to respond to the attacks of the rebels.

Recall, on October 23, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad announced a general amnesty for crimes committed "by this day". Pardon also touches the persons convicted of criminal offenses.

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.
