West Germany Takes
Action Against Syria

Bonn (JTA) — The West
German government said last
week that limited sanctions
would be imposed on Syria.
Government spokesman
Friedhelm Ost said Bonn will
freeze all economic assistance
to Syria, the post of Am-
bassador in Damascus, va-
cant for some time due to a
routine personnel change, will
not be filled, and five Syrian
diplomats accredited to Bonn
will be asked to leave.
The measures were an-
nounced after a West Berlin
court sentenced two Jor-
danian nationals to prison
terms for bombing the Ger-
man-Arab Friendship Club
there last March and ordered
the arrest of A Syrian Em-
bassy intelligence officer as
an accomplice in the crime.
Ahmed Hasi, 35, was
sentenced to 14 years' im-
prisonment and Farouk
Salameh, 40, received a 13
year sentence. Hasi is the
brother of Nezar Hindawi
who was convicted in a Lon-
don court and sentenced to 45
years in prison for attempting
to smuggle explosive aboard
an El Al airline at Heathrow
Airport last April 17.
Presiding Judge Hans
Joachim Heinze issued a war-
rant for the arrest of Hay-
them Saed, a senior Syrian
Air Force intelligence officer,
after finding evidence of
Syrian complicity in the
bombing. The evidence was
based on the pre-trial confes-
sions of the two defendants.
Saed, also known as Abu
Ahmed, was implicated at
Hindawi's trial. The Syrian
connection with the attempt
to blow up the Israeli airliner
led Britain to break diplo-
matic relations with Syria.
The Bonn government's
measures, though clearly in-
fluenced by the West Berlin
court's findings, fell far short
of the British response. Ost
stressed that West Germany
wanted to maintain its good
relations with the Arab
world. However, West Ger-
many must demonstrate its
resolve to flight against inter-
national terrorism, he said.

The Arab League had
warned the Bonn government
against taking diplomatic or
other measures against any of
its member states.
The decision to impose
limited sanctions was taken
after Chancellor Helmut Kohl
consulted with Foreign
Minister HansDietrich
Genscher and other senior
Cabinet ministers and aides.
The Foreign Ministry re-
portedly warned the Chan-
cellor that breaking diplo-
matic relations with Dam-
ascus could have dangerous
repercussions on Bonn's
standing in the Arab world.
The Chancellor was also
reportedly warned that tough
action against Syria could
result in that country giving
covert aid to urban guerrilla
groups active in West Ger-
many. The most dangerous
group is the Red Army Fac-
tion which received training
with the Palestine Liberation
Organization based in Arab
countries.
Moreover, officials here said
Bonn could not act against
Syria on the basis of accusa-
tions made in the West Berlin
trial. Nevertheless, the court's
clear cut finding of Syrian in-
volvement in the March 29
bombing could not be ig-
nored.
In their confessions, which
Judge Heinze considered "ge-
nuine", Hasi an Salameh said
they were recruited by Hin-
dawi and were given the
bomb by Saed at the Syrian
Embassy. The bomb was
delivered to West Berlin in a
Syrian Embassy pouch.
The Bonn government is
already participating in
limited sanctions imposed on
Syria by the European Eco-
nomic Community's (EEC)
Council of Ministers at the in-
sistence of British Foreign
Secretary Sir Geoffrey Howe.
The most severe EEC mea-
sure is a ban on arms sales to
Damascus. It is not con-
sidered likely to have much
impact inasmuch as Syria
receives most of its military
equipment from the Soviet
Union.
