Asma Al-Assad, The President of Syria Bashar al-Assad and his wife Asma al-Assad in 2010. It was announced on March 21, 2012 that the European Union plans to ban Asma al-Assad from traveling to or shopping in the EU after the release of e-mails revealed her support of the president’s brutal crackdown on the Syrian opposition.
The European Union has slapped sanctions on Asma al-Assad, the wife of Syria’s president, who was recently exposed over online shopping sprees involving retailers in London and Paris as her husband continued a vicious crackdown on his people.
All assets she may have there have also been frozen, the Associated Press reported.
It was also revealed British officials are looking at the possibility of stripping Assad, a 36-year-old British-born ex-banker, of the British half of her dual citizenship, the Vancouver Sun reported.
Assad once projected the image of a glamorous woman with Western-inspired values. However, Reuters noted, she had stood by her husband’s actions through the bloody, year-long crackdown on the Syrian opposition which according to the UN has left at least 8,000 people dead.
