Lubna calls to drop Iraqi citizenship from Hashimi
Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP Lubna Raheem of the Iraqiya Hurra Coalition called the Government to withdraw the Iraqi citizenship from the convicted Vice President, Tariq al-Hashimi, who is sentenced to death in absentia, after obtaining the Turkish citizenship.
Raheem cited that “Hashimi accepted to be a Turkish citizen; therefore the Iraqi Government should drop the Iraqi citizenship from him.”
It is worth mention that some media outlets have announced that the Turkish Prime Minister granted the fugitive VP Hashimi a Turkish citizenship.
Earlier, the Iraqi Supreme Judicial Court has sentenced Hashimi and his brother-in-law, Ahmed Qahtan, to death by hanging on 4th, November over charges related to prepare a car bomb in south of Baghdad to detonate it on visitors heading to Karbala holy shrines coming from Kut city.
