SULAYMAAN AL-ASSAD CAPTURED AND TO BE CHARGED LIKE ANY ORDINARY CITIZEN FOR MURDER

الجهات المختصة تلقي القبض على سليمان الأسد وتحيله إلى الجهات المعنية

LATAKIA:  Sulaymaan Hilaal Al-Assad was taken into custody at about 9:00 p.m. Sunday night after eluding elements of the General Security Directorate, Military Police and the enraged citizens of Latakia.  Sulaymaan Al-Assad is the second cousin of the president and the son of a war hero, Maj. Gen. Hilaal Al-Assad who gave his life defending Syria in the northwest corner of the coastal province while leading units of the Popular Defense Forces.  What a disgrace to his great name that this thug would be now charged with the murder of one of Syria’s best officers in the Air Defense Corps.

He killed Colonel Hassan Al-Shaykh as he was returning from his air defense base while on leave to see his family.  The colonel was seated with his brother inside his car.  The incident which gave rise to this tragedy occurred after the colonel’s brother beeped his horn and sped around Sulaymaan’s car which the latter apparently viewed as an insulting maneuver given the military license plate he was sporting.  Sulaymaan, reportedly sped up, and forced the colonel’s car to stop.  When the colonel’s brother stopped out of his vehicle, Sulaymaan was seen reaching for an AK-47 assault rifle which he was licensed to carry.  The colonel, who was in full dress uniform and could not be mistook for anything but a full-bird colonel, excoriated Sulaymaan for his egregious behavior.  One thing led to another, and Sulaymaan aimed his rifle, and the colonel, who evidently did not believe the idiot would fire,  took a shot straight to the heart.

This incident took place on an intersection close to where the colonel was stationed.  Sulaymaan Al-Assad was found by the military police hiding in a shed close to the Qardaaha Dam area.  He was spotted by local residents.  His intentions were to escape to Tripoli, Lebanon; to Jabal Muhsin, from where he,  then,  planned to leave the Near East. (We think, probably to Marbella, Spain where he would seek the help of the notorious paternal uncle of the president, Rif’aat Al-Assad.)

President Assad has promised full prosecution for this heinous crime.  He has spoken to the colonel’s wife to give her confidence in the criminal justice system which will treat this relative of the Assad family like any other citizen.  It is said the president is furious over the loss of Colonel Al-Shaykh.

Sulaymaan has been interrogated by Military Police in the presence of a military prosecutor.  He will be referred shortly to the Military Prosecutor’s Office where he will be formally charged with murder.  Then, he will be delivered to the Investigating Judge and to the Criminal Court where the verdict and sentence will be handed down.   Wael, my source in Latakia, says Sulaymaan was a thug who used narcotics.   In Syria, that’s not a defense.

Ziad, much appreciated for this very detailed report on this sad event. No matter the blood he carries, a criminal is a criminal, and must be charged as any regular citizen, hope he takes what he deserves.
I am glad this event is behind already, of course it was widely used by idiotic MSMs as Dr. Assad’s doing, but what one could expect from the very sources that fund terrorism around the planet.

A great loss for the SAAB unfortunately the alienated human beings and their biggest drug consumers are Americans. The Syrian Arab penal system is far from Saudi and warranties, however the full weight of the law must fall upon this unworthy member of the Assad family. Peace at the tomb of another hero fallen because of the tax conflict to Syria by USA and its lackeys.

I saw the photos of him in the news and I thought to myself he looks like a young thug. It is possible that he was affected by the loss of his father which contributed. Unfortunately Australia ranks number 1 for recreational drug use and some young people think it is cool to king hit bypassers often resulting in deaths. In pubs you get people glassed in the face. I can only say again, after having a middle eastern family live here, that I was really shocked by the degree of westernization. Sugar, junk food, television, gadgets, computer games, rap… Read more »

If only Assad had adopted the same rigorous attitude towards his thug relatives torturing teenagers to death in Daraa in 2011, Syria might not be in its current sorrowful state.

It is a credit to President Assad that the wheels of justice are being seen to turn effectively in dealing with this disgraceful thug. May the national hero Colonel Hassan Al-Shaykh Rest in Peace in Paradise.

Syria – Latakia – The Tiger and His Bad Ass Troops in His Helicopter After Leaving The Hospital in Latakia – August 9, 2015

Published on Aug 11, 2015

The colonel reappeared in this helicopter that brought him back from the hospital with several of his bad ass soldiers. The colonel was supposed to be resting a few more days, but wanted to return voluntarily to the battle, where he’s needed.

Let us not judge too hastily here and potentially lose a great talent so badly needed by the Patria: even if sentenced, enthusiastic young Sulaymaan must be allowed out on a special work-release program to kill off about another 100 incompetent SAA generals, thus greatly improving Syria’s chances of surviving this war in one piece. Once he achieves this high score he should then be eligible for parole and a tray of medals.

Haven’t been around lately – has this been discussed here ? It’s about Syrian and Saudi intelligence folks meeting under Russian tutelage :

This may be good news. Trump is pro Putin.

Peace on earth. He accused the Zionist bitch of having her period, but apparently the Conservative public didn’t mind at all. Perhaps they don’t like Fox News?

Chavez didn’t either.

He is sorely missed!

If I were Suleiman defense attorney I might enter a plea of PTSD. I don’t know if it is a legally allowable defense in Syria. This is wartime and it takes a special kind of person to remain emotionally stable in the maelstrom of war and the daily sights of horrendous carnage. Drug usage is rife in combat zones. That is a given. Desperate people do desperate things. My theory is that most drug and alcohol addiction is due to individuals who are self-medicating their emotional problems. Everyday our headlines scream about the ravages of drug and alcohol abuse and… Read more »

Wouldn’t it be easier for everyone to just strap a parachute on him, put him in a helicopter and kick him out over Raqqah, Der EzZor or Tadmur? Or perhaps even Downtown Idlib?

Perhaps it’s “cruel”?
