العدد179                                     الانتهاكات الكردية

التاريخ  27 كانون الثاني 2010

 

ترى الجبهة التركمانية العراقية انه من الضروري ان تذكر حكومة دولة القانون بتصريح اللواء جمال طاهر قائد شرطة كركوك الذي ادلى به مع تمرير المادة 24 من قانون انتخاب مجالس المحافظات في 22 / تموز / 2008 والخاصة بكركوك , والتي نصت على استقدام قوات من وسط العراق وجنوبه الى كركوك , اذ اكد اللواء جمال بان قوات شرطة كركوك قادرة على حماية كركوك وكرر تاكيده حين ترددت انباء عن امكانية دخول الفرقة 12 من الجيش العراقي داخل حدود كركوك , ومن الضروري ايضا ان نذكر حكومة دولة القانون بان شخصيات سياسية كردية قد اعلنت وردا على المادة 24 بانها مستعدة ان تقف في حمرين لمواجهة القوات الحكومية التي ستحاول دخول كركوك .

ان حملات الاغتيالات التي تستهدف مواطنين تركمان ابرياء وباسلحة كاتمة للصوت والتي ما تزال مستمرة واخرها اغتيال الشاب التركماني احمد ابراهيم يوم السبت 23 / 1 واستمرار عمليات الخطف ومن ابرزها الجريمة التي قادها ضابط كردي قيل انه قتل على اثرها في مقر تابع لحزب كردي في منطقة شوان , واستمرار التهديد بوسائل مختلفة من اجل ارهاب التركمان مع استمرار الانتهاكات للقوانين في كركوك وبحجج مختلفة اخرها ما قامت به منتصف ليلة امس قوة من الاسايش مدعية بانها من التحقيقات الجنائية بمداهمة منزل عائلة تركمانية لديها اكثر من فرد في سلك الشرطة وحين تاكدت العناصر المداهمة بانها اخطات في تقديراتها هذه المرة وانكشفت انها من الاسايش , فحاول المسؤولون الاكراد للحزبين الكرديين لملمة هذا الانتهاك الصارخ للقوانين بذرائع شتى استمرت في استخدامها كلما ظهرت فضيحة من هذا النوع .

والغريب ان ادعاءاتهم يؤخذ بها مثل فضيحة الضابط الكردي الذي اعتقل متلبسا باستلام فدية قدرها ( 8000 ) دولار وكان التبرير الكردي بانه كان على موعد مع صاحبته في المنطقة التي تمت مصادرة الاموال منها ولم يقل المدعين الاكراد من اين كان يعرف وجود المبلغ في الموقع نفسه .ان الجبهة التركمانية العراقية اذ تصر على رفضها نشر قوات مشتركة في كركوك  واذ يدعي المسؤولون من اكراد الحزبين في كركوك بانها لم تنشر لحد الان فان هناك شهود عيان وادلة على تمركز ميليشيات كردية في انحاء مختلفة من كركوك بحجة انها سيطرات ضمن القوات المشتركة .

ان ما يجري في كركوك من انتهاكات واضحة للقانون ومنها ان تقوم عناصر من مديرية التحقيقات الجنائية بمداهمات , وكما نعلم ان مهمة هذه المديرية ان تقوم باجراء تحقيقات الادلة الجنائية في موقع جريمة ما .

اننا نؤكد عدم شرعية نشر قوات مشتركة ونطالب حكومة دولة القانون ان تكون ( دولة قانون ) حقيقية وان لا تسمح بالتجاوزات بسبب الحملة الانتخابية ونرفق مع بياننا هذا نسخة من كتاب مدير مكتب كركوك للمفوضية العليا للانتخابات بالرقم ك و / 107 بتاريخ 19 / 1 / 2010 والذي يؤكد فيه تمركز اللواء 110 من الميليشيات الكردية ضمن القوات الامنية في كركوك ومحاولة ادراج اسمائهم ضمن قوائم الانتخابات في التصويت الخاص …

وما خفي كان اعظم .

Turkmènes et Arabes opposés au déploiement des peshmergas à Kirkouk

Irak: opérations conjointes de l’armée américaine avec Arabes et Kurdes

 http://www.lemonde.fr/web/depeches/0,14-0,39-41512830@7-60,0.html

AFP – Le Monde

26.01.10  

L

‘armée américaine a commencé à mener des opérations conjointes avec l’armée irakienne et les Peshmergas, les combattants kurdes, dans des zones disputées du nord de l’Irak, a annoncé mardi le commandant des forces américaines en Irak, le général Ray Odierno.

Ces opérations sont destinées à faire baisser les tensions dans ces régions que se disputent le gouvernement central de Bagdad et les autorités kurdes autonomes d’Erbil (nord).

 

 

Mais cette mesure semble avoir eu l’effet inverse, provoquant la colère des communautés arabe et turcomane qui ont rejeté une force “illégale” qui risque de “légitimer” la présence des Peshmergas au-delà du Kurdistan.

Des barrages, contrôlés par les trois forces, ont été établis dans ces zones situées dans les provinces de Kirkouk, riche en pétrole, Ninive et Diyala, a affirmé le général Odierno.

“D’ici le 31 janvier, tous les barrages seront en place et nous allons commencer les patrouilles”, a-t-il dit, sans préciser le nombre de soldats américains déployés dans ces régions.

“Il s’agit de protéger la population (…) qui a été visée par Al-Qaïda et d’autres qui essaient d’exploiter les divergences politiques. Cette force (tripartite) a été mise en place pour essayer de mettre fin à la vulnérabilité des gens dans les zones disputées”, a insisté Ray Odierno.

L’établissement de cette force tripartite avait été annoncé à l’été 2009 au moment d’un regain de tension entre Kurdes et Arabes.

Les trois provinces du Kurdistan (Erbil, Souleimaniyeh et Dohouk) représentent 40.000 km2, mais les forces kurdes, dans le sillage de l’invasion conduite par les Etats-Unis en 2003, ont étendu leur présence sur 75.000 km2 en prenant le contrôle d’une partie des provinces de Kirkouk, Ninive et Diyala.

Les Etats-Unis et l’ONU font pression pour parvenir à un règlement pacifique, craignant que le conflit entre Arabes et Kurdes ne ruine les efforts pour stabiliser l’Irak.

Le chef de la police de la province de Kirkouk, le général Jamal Taher, un Kurde, a affirmé à l’AFP que la force conjointe américano-arabo-kurde dans cette province était composée de “100 à 150 membres de la police et de l’armée irakiennes, des Peshmergas et de l’armée américaine”.

La formation de cette force a toutefois provoqué la colère de la communauté turcomane, qui refuse toute présence kurde à Kirkouk. “Cette présence est illégale et inconstitutionnelle”, a affirmé Tourhane al-Moufti, un membre du conseil provincial et membre du Front turcoman.

“Les forces de l’armée et de la police à Kirkouk sont déjà conjointes et des Kurdes sont à leur tête. Déployer cette force tripartite n’a aucune utilité”, a-t-il argué.

La communauté arabe de Kirkouk s’est également opposée à un tel déploiement. “Cette force légitime la présence des Peshmergas à Kirkouk, qui sont une force spéciale du Kurdistan”, a martelé un dignitaire arabe, Hussein al-Joubouri.

“La présence kurde vise à couper Kirkouk du reste de l’Irak”, a-t-il ajouté.

De son côté, un cheikh sunnite de l’une des plus grandes tribus de Kirkouk, Abdallah Sami al-Assi, a conseillé de “renforcer le soutien aux forces armées irakiennes existantes”. “Le présence de la force tripartite va avoir l’effet inverse et sa présence n’a aucune justification”, a-t-il insisté.

Iraq – Security forces now biggest enemy for Iraqi journalists

 Excerpt:

Police used force to turn reporter Sami Ez-Al-Dine and cameraman Esam Omar of satellite TV station Turkmen Ele away when they went to cover a party at the police academy in Kirkuk (255 km north of Baghdad) to mark National Police Day on 9 January.

Police officer Samad Mustafa Abdullah pushed Omar violently and threatened him. The cameraman complained to the Kirkuk police chief.

The New De-Baathification Board?

The New De-Baathification Board?

Posted by Reidar Visser on January 26, 2010

The big news out of Iraq today is of course the passage of the 2010 budget, but since the final document has been a little slow to emerge, we might as well have a look at another interesting item in the meanwhile, published this morning by Sumaria TV.

Sumaria, which was also the first to publish the names of the 511 banned candidates for the 7 March parliamentary elections, claims to have obtained the revised list of candidates for the de-Baathification board that the government is eager to put in place in order to improve the legal façade of its de-Baathification process. According to the sources, the new names are Kamran Rasul and Bakhtiyar Umar from the Kurdistani list, Haydar Hanun of Daawa, Falah al-Shanshal of the Sadrist list (he has lately been the most outspoken parliamentary supporter of Lami/Chalabi’s de-Baathification policy), Muhammad Salim and Mahdi Salih listed as Iraqi National Alliance (presumably ISCI or close to ISCI since the Sadrists are listed separately), and Abd al-Razzaq Hassan of Tawafuq.

The apparent removal of Walid al-Hilli, Maliki’s preferred candidate to head the commission, is interesting. Other than that, it has to be said that with the exception of Shanshal, these aren’t individuals about whom a great deal is known. But if the party affiliations are correct as reported then this is bad news indeed. Blunt, straightforward ethno-sectarian and party-based muhasasa with 4 Shiite Islamists, 2 Kurds, 1 token Sunni Islamist and, as usual, no one representing the secular nationalists. The board was reportedly not voted on today even though Shanshal had pressed for such a vote.

The Ghost of Paul Bremer Strikes Again: Nine Entities Banned with Reference to CPA Order 97

The Ghost of Paul Bremer Strikes Again: Nine Entities Banned with Reference to CPA Order 97

Posted by Reidar Visser on January 25, 2010

The Iraqi elections commission (IHEC) has earlier queried the constitutional court about the relationship between excluded party leaders and the entities they represent. Last December it asked whether it would be constitutional to ban an entity if its leader were excluded; the court replied it did not want to issue an opinion on this and said the matter rested with the IHEC. It was subsequently rumoured that the accountability and justice board wanted to exclude between 10 and 15 entities, and it was thought that there might be an attempt at linking the banning of entity heads and their entire parties.

Today, the IHEC has acted in a bolder fashion. Referring to section 5 of CPA order 97 from 2004, they have cancelled the approval of 9 entities previously slated to take part in the elections. CPA order 97 is an unmistakable Paul Bremer creation. It pompously begins, “Pursuant to my authority as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority…” The relevant section simply runs as follows, “All further matters regarding the regulation and certification of political entities lie with the Commission exclusively”. Very general and wide-ranging powers indeed. The document was signed on 7 June 2004; the “commission” referred to is what was then the “Independent Electoral Commission”, which later became the “higher commission”.

The entities affected include two sub-entities within Iraqiyya (most famously the Hiwar front of Salih al-Mutlak); two parties within Unity of Iraq; the party of Nehru Abd al-Karim; one party within State of Law, and the rest smaller lists and independents. The commission does not spell out what the annulment of the approval of these entities will mean in practice. It says the candidates in the elections cannot use the names and logos of these parties. That may possibly mean that the practical implications are limited – the case of Iraqiyya is in any case more convoluted because the banned Hiwar technically merged with Wifaq to form a new movement or haraka last autumn, distinct from the coalition, and Ayad Allawi is the head of it.

What this whole issue shows is that once more the IHEC is acting in concert with the accountability and justice board. The reversion to a carte-blanche article in a law authored by Paul Bremer – no specific coherent legal justification for the exclusion is offered, just a brutal attempt at asserting boundless power –  serves to highlight the murkiness of the waters that we are headed for with this election.

Postscript: Finally, one more detail. By highlighting the names of the party heads in the list of excluded entities, one gets the impression that the IHEC wants to focus on the de-Baathification status of the leader as basis for exclusion.  But apparently, four of these leaders are not on the blacklist of the 511 excluded candidates, even though some expected them to be there! The only Arshad on the list is called Arshad Husayn Muhammad Yunis, and yet the party of Arshad Ahmad Muhammad Mustafa (Zibari, a Kurd) has been banned. Similarly, Jamal Nasir al-Karbuli and Saad Asim Abbud al-Janabi have had their lists banned, and yet the list of 511 contains only 4 Jamal and 4 Saad, none of whom have parental names that fits. That inevitably raises the question of whether there is any relationship between the de-Baathification status of the leaders and the banned parties at all, and whether the IHEC thinks that it can outlaw whatever list it bloody well wants to exclude, even for no good reason, as long as it is done in the name of Paul Bremer’s sweeping edict from 2004.

Details of Dr. David Kelly’s alleged suicide to be sealed 70 years

Details of Iraq whistleblower’s alleged suicide to be sealed 70 years

By Stephen C. Webster

 rawstory.com/2010/01/details-iraq-whistleblowers-alleged-suicide-sealed-70-years

 
Raw Story, January 24, 2010By 2080, anyone with a direct interest in learning how Dr. David Kelly died, will themselves be dead.

That’s how an Oxford coroner reacted to a recent ruling ordering the details of the former United Nations weapons inspector’s death locked away for 70 years, according to a Mail Online report.

Kelly’s story, however, was gravely important in 2003, just before he was found dead in the woods behind his home in Oxfordshire, U.K. As the BBC revealed in the wake of his passing, he had been the key source behind a story claiming intelligence on Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction was “sexed up.”

Hours before his death, he reportedly e-mailed New York Times reporter Judith Miller, warning her of “many dark actors playing games,” according to the BBC.

Lord Hutton, the British judge who led the state’s investigation into Kelly’s death, also ordered his written records pertaining to the case sealed for 30 years, according to UK’s Morning Star Online.

The report added that Hutton’s inquiry “concluded that Dr Kelly had killed himself by cutting an artery in his wrist. But the finding has been challenged by doctors who claim that the weapons inspector’s stated injuries were not serious enough to have killed him.”

A paramedic who responded to the scene was quoted by The Guardian, saying: “There just wasn’t a lot of blood… When somebody cuts an artery, whether accidentally or intentionally, the blood pumps everywhere. I just think it is incredibly unlikely that he died from the wrist wound we saw.”

The claims eventually led a group of six doctors to bring formal demands for an investigation into Kelly’s death. An initial inquiry was headed up by the British Ministry of Defense.

“[Just] how far were the Blair/Bush administrations willing to go in order to fabricate a reason for the Iraq war?” asked RAW STORY’s Investigative News Editor Larisa Alexandrovna in a post to her blog, At Largely. “The Bush administration was at the very least willing to out a covert CIA officer, committing treason in the process. What was Tony Blair willing to do?”

Sadly, with the court’s inquiry ended, the questions seem doomed to persist.

Elizabeth Wilmshurst, the Foreign Office lawyer who resigned on principle on the eve of the Iraq war

Chilcot inquiry will be told Lord Goldsmith’s top lawyer advised invasion was against the law

 By Brian Brady, Whitehall Editor

 Sunday, 24 January 2010

 A senior Foreign Office lawyer who quit in protest at the invasion of Iraq will this week lay bare the sharp divisions within the Blair administration and its Whitehall advisers as Britain careered towards war in 2003.

 On Tuesday, three days before Tony Blair faces the Chilcot inquiry into the Iraq war, Elizabeth Wilmshurst will make perhaps the most explosive contribution to date by revealing the confusion and infighting between officials and ministers over the legality of deposing Saddam Hussein without United Nations support.

Halabja, procès en catimini

Talabani accuse un rival d’être responsable du massacre

Gilles Munier

 http://www.france-irak-actualite.com/article-halabja-proces-en-catimini-43527829.html

 Le 17 janvier dernier, la Haute Cour pénale irakienne – ex Tribunal spécial irakien, créé en 2003 par les autorités d’occupation – a condamné à mort Ali Hassan al-Majid  pour avoir ordonné le bombardement au gaz de la ville kurde de Halabja, le 16 mars 1988. A l’époque, l’Irak était en guerre avec l’Iran et il coordonnait les activités militaires et de renseignement dans le nord du pays. La peine capitale prononcée à son encontre par le juge Aref Abdoul-Razzak al-Chahine étant courue d’avance, la tenue du procès avait été fixée d’un commun accord par Nouri al-Maliki et Massoud Barzani, pour tomber avant les élections législatives, alors prévues fin janvier.

Le procès de Hassan al-Majid ayant été uniquement instruit à charge, il est bon de rappeler que la bataille de Halabja a été provoquée par l’entrée au Kurdistan irakien d’une colonne de Gardiens de la révolution iranienne (Pasdarans), guidée par un groupe de peshmergas de l’Union Populaire du Kurdistan (UPK), le parti de Jalal Talabani, actuel président de la République. En pleine guerre Iran-Irak, c’était un acte de trahison.

Al-Sadr urges US forces to leave Iraq at once

  Al-Sadr urges US forces to leave Iraq at once

Sat, 23 Jan 2010
Iraq’s senior Shia leader Muqtada al-Sadr
Iraq’s senior Shia leader Muqtada al-Sadr has urged US occupying forces in Iraq to leave the country as soon as possible.

According to Al-Alam news network, the Iraqi top cleric made the remark in a statement on Friday.

Al-Sadr further urged the US to stop its intervention in Iraqi internal affairs.

The influential cleric also requested that the Iraqi government exert themselves to force the occupying forces from the Iraqi soil.

The United States announced on Saturday, January 16 that it will deploy 21,000 US troops in and around the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq despite the security agreement between Baghdad and Washington.

According to the commander of US forces in northern Iraq, Anthony Cucolo, 21,000 US forces will be deployed in Kirkuk and Mosul early next month.

Cucolo further claimed that the deployment is aimed at preventing what he termed “possible Kurd-Arab tension.”

The deployment is contrary to a security pact, known as the Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA), which was signed on November 17, 2008 by the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Hoshyar Zebari, and the then US ambassador Ryan Crocker.

Based on SOFA, both sides agreed that US troops should pull out from Iraq’s urban areas by the end of June 2009 and be completely withdrawn from the country by the end of 2011.
