SNC to Resolve Passport Renewal Dilemma

The National Coalition (SNC) has requested its Legal Division Head, Hisham Marwa, to communicate with the Canadian body that rejected a proposal sent by the Embassy of the National Coalition in Doha in regard to the renewal of expired passports by the embassy.


The National Coalition has formed a committee consisting of Hisham Marwa, Bader Jamous and Yahya Maktabi to communicate with representatives from a number of bodies in regard to the renewal of passports, including: the committee at Coalition’s Embassy in Qatar and the Embassy itself, Coalition member Nazir al-Hakim, Ambassadors of Syria’s friendly countries, and the Canadian body that rejected the renewal of passports.


According to information received by Zaman al-Wasl, the meeting’s conclusions included a proposal to communicate with the United Nations (UN) to evaluate the possibility of UN-issued passports.


Previously, President of the National Coalition Khalid Khoja confirmed to Zaman al-Wasl that the renewal of passports from the Coalition’s Embassy in Doha has been placed on hold, as the SNC continues to check the legalities of the process.
