DAMASCUS, Oct. 29 (Xinhua) -- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad granted on Tuesday a general amnesty, covering crimes committed before Oct. 29, according to the state-run SANA news agency.

The new presidential pardon covers crimes mentioned in the military service law, including those of fleeing from the mandatory service, SANA said, spelling no further details whether the pardon covers other crimes aside from the military ones.

Assad has previously issued many pardons that covered many crimes in addition to the military ones.

The fresh move came as preparations for the Geneva II conference on Syria which seeks to find a political solution to the long-standing conflict in the country.
