    Asama Assad is a British citizen which gives her the right to enter any country in the EU at will without a visa. It will be interesting to see how she is dealt with when her husband is eventually toppled. If she returns to home to the UK there is a good chance she will be put on trial in the British courts or the British government will agree to let her be put on trial in the international courts for her role in Assad's killing spree which will mean no returning to the UK for sanctuary. Like her loser husband she will either end up executed after a show trial in Syria, on trial in an international court and prison or they will have to hope somewhere like North Korea will agree to give them sanctuary which is hardly the country where the Assad's want to live out the rest of their lives. Worst of all for Asama thanks to this EU ban it means no more shopping for luxury goods at Harrods.
