Syrian President Bashar Assad has issued an amendment to the controversial Law 10 that allowed the government to seize property left behind by civilians who fled the war. Under the new law, civilians now have one year, instead of one month, to prove ownership of their properties. The Syrian government passed Law 10 in April to empower authorities to confiscate property in areas designated for redevelopment by local authorities. Law 10 initially gave people only 30 days to prove they owned property and apply for compensation after authorities officially chose an area for redevelopment.Those whose property is already registered in the government's land registry do not have to prove ownership.
