Flash: explosive: Bashshar has close relations with his mom. Why Bashshar's Mother was added to the sanctions list

A source in Jordan who does not want to be identified sent me this:  "Have you seen the attached document? You wanted to know why Bashar's mother was on the sanction list? now you know: "Given the close personal relationship and intrinsic financial relationship to the President", isn't it weird that she has such a close relationship with the President, you would wonder why. But what is funny is that they impose sanctions on all the petroleum companies in Syria and then sanction the Minister of Electricity "for using power cuts as a method of repression"!!  If you use please don't not mention me."

Here is the official text: "Mother of President Al-Assad. Given the close personal relationship and intrinsic 
financial relationship to the Syrian President, Bashar Al Assad, she benefits from and is associated with the Syrian regime."   Source (no link): "COUNCIL IMPLEMENTING DECISION 2012/172/CFSP
of 23 March 2012 implementing Decision 2011/782/CFSP concerning restrictive measures against Syria".
