BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – According to Dr. Jawad Abu Hatab, an incumbent within the anti-Assad Syrian Interim Government, the opposition polity is completely strapped for cash to the point where it officially relies on volunteer work to keep it running.

Mr. Hatab announced on Monday that all positions within the Syrian Interim Government have been considered voluntary since the beginning of August and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.

Despite this however, volunteers will receive some monetary compensation (referred to as a “bonus”) at the end of each month, which will be payed out according to available finances and the amount of time put in by a given worker.

The opposition representative pointed to a recent “reluctance” in hitherto regular financial donors as the main reason for the current budgetary crisis plaguing the self-declared alternative Syrian government.

The foolish puppets are not required anymore, their masters left them. Minions on their search for a new master.

Based in Turkey.
Qatar stopped to fund them…
UN doesn’t recognise ’em and even the US are reluctant to fund a gvt in exile without a seat at the UN, so do others…
200 of the 530 staff outside Syria resigned or were fired, 3000 staff in Syria work without pay…
Nice luxury four-story office in Gaziantep, salaries from $2.5k to $8k, thus, now 2 car-rental companies are suing them as they failed to pay monthly dues of at least $26,000 for a fleet of more than 30 leased cars.

Corruption, mismanagement, false-jobs to families, internal discords, etc etc…
