The Geneva peace talks shopping trip

Today from Reuters --

Syria has added opposition delegates at peace talks in Geneva to a "terrorist list" and seized their assets, including the house of one of them, anti-government negotiators and a diplomat said on Saturday. The opposition delegation only learnt of the decision when a copy of the Justice Ministry decision was leaked this week to the opposition website, the sources said. The memorandum, issued by the Justice Ministry, says the assets had been frozen under a 2012 anti-terrorism law.

Notice the well-accessorized Assad official on the right. Any chance of some of that bling being seized on her next trip abroad?
