The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE -

A team from the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment (KRG) and a com­mit­tee from the Direc­torate Gen­eral of Mass Graves from the Iraqi Min­istry of Hu­man Rights, is to visit the Prov­ince of Sa­mawa to search for the corpses of vic­tims of the Nu­gra Sal­man An­fal process.

The joint team has al­ready started look­ing for vic­tims’ corpses in the prov­ince.

Foad Os­man, an of­fi­cial spokesper­son for the KRG’s Min­istry of Mar­tyrs and An­fal Af­fairs, an­nounced that “The team is drawn from the KRG min­is­te­rial direc­torate for Mass Graves, and is work­ing in col­lab­o­ra­tion with a team from the cen­tral gov­ern­ment’s mass graves’ direc­torate to find the corpses”.

Based on the state­ments from eye wit­nesses as well as of­fi­cial doc­u­ments, the KRG has re­quested that the mass graves near the Nu­gra Sal­man Jail be dug up and searched.

Ac­cord­ing to Iraqi Law 6/2006, the Hu­man Rights Min­istry is as­signed to pro­tect and dig up the coun­try’s mass graves.
