To punish the Syrian regime...The US Senate approves the “Captagon 2” law

Apr 24 2024

ARK Nes… The US Senate approved the Anti-Captagon 2 bill, which seeks to hold the Syrian regime accountable for drug trafficking.

The American Coalition for Syria and the Syrian American Council said in a post on the “X” platform, “The Senate approved the draft law to combat Assad’s trade in Captagon drugs (Captagon 2) as part of an urgent legislative package with a vote of 79 supporters and only 18 opponents. It is on its way to the president’s office now to be signed soon.” "It will then become an effective and enforceable law."

Last week, the US House of Representatives approved, by a majority, the “Captagon 2” draft resolution, which aims to grant the US government new and expanded powers to hold the Syrian regime and its associated networks accountable regarding the drug trade.

410 members voted in favor of the bill, while 13 members opposed it.

The draft law aims to grant the United States government new and expanded powers to hold accountable the Syrian regime, the networks associated with it, and all those who are active or involved in trafficking, manufacturing, or smuggling Captagon drugs, or benefiting from the profits resulting from them, regardless of their nationality.
