Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) The Governor of Kirkuk province, Najim al-Din Karim, threatens to sue the leader of the 12th Military Divisions if he orders to prevent the demonstrations in Kirkuk province.

In a press statement received by IraqiNews.com on Wednesday, he said “Holding the demonstrations legally and peacefully is an issue that happens in the developed countries and according to the constitution,” noting that “We have received a request to hold demonstrations in Kirkuk province and we authorized them where the demonstrations were held peacefully.”

“We have received information about preventing holding a demonstration in Rashad district, but we did not receive any complaint regarding this issue,” he added, assuring that “Preventing the demonstrations is clear violation to the constitution and in case we receive a complaint about preventing any demonstration, we will sue the leader of the 12th Military Division.”

“According to the constitution, the Prime Minister and the Military leader cannot prevent any authorized demonstration, but unfortunately a parliament member states that holding the demonstrations in Kirkuk is a betrayal,” he concluded.
