OBITUARY:  JULY 6, 2018 SEES DEATH OF FORMER MINISTER OF INFORMATION: ‘UMRAAN AL-ZU’BI, ESQ. 

NOVANEWS

We at SyrPer extend our sincerest condolences to the Al-Zu’bi family upon hearing of the untimely passing of Syria’s former Minister of Information, ‘Umraan Al-Zu’bi.  ‘Umraan was born in Damascus in 1959 to a family originally from Der’ah.  He subsequently went to law school at the University of Damascus.  He passed away after having been named Vice President of the National Progressive Front in 2016, a position he retained until his death.  He became Minister of Information in 2012 and was known for his very liberal approach to certain press freedoms.  I personally used to relish his interviews because of his unabashed contempt for the Saudis, Qataris and the rest of that bedounized trash he used to call ‘Irbaan or عربان .

We join the Regional Command of the Ba’ath Party, The National Progressive Front, Lawyers’ Union and the Ministry of Information in expressing our sadness over this fine man’s passing.  He died at the hospital after a very sudden cardiac arrest.  He was only 58 years old.

He will be remembered today at the Badr Al-Maaliki Mosque and interred at the Al-Sagheer Cemetery in Damascus.

In Pace Requiescat.
