A parliamentary source attended the meeting stated to IraqiNews.com “The Citizen bloc, al-Ahrar bloc and the Kurdistani Alliance refused to cancel Article (4) of Anti-Terrorism law where they participants agreed on amending it then sending it to the Parliamentary Legal Committee to approve it and specify the sides included within it.”
“Regarding the General Amnesty law, the participants agreed on the suggestion of the Citizen bloc which is not to include the involved persons in shedding the blood of the Iraq people and to be also amended to be approved,” the source added.
The source pointed out “Regarding the Justice and Accountability law, the attendants assured that this law needs to be amended and make the final decision for the judiciary in addition to avoid applying it selectively where this is the suggestion of the Citizen bloc and supported by al-Sadr Trend and the KA.”
