Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) MP, Liqa Wardi of the Iraqiya Slate expressed her doubts over the number of the released detainees, confirming the need for documenting these numbers to verify them.
Speaking to IraqiNews.com, she mentioned “The announced numbers are huge but there is no side to confirm them.”
“The Ministerial Committee release the detainees without handing them the IS or the sides that organize the demonstrations so no proofs over their numbers,” she continued.
“We need to receive the released detainees to verify their numbers,” she remarked.
“In case there are huge numbers of released detainees, there will be a public and political reaction but such announced numbers are merely media statements away from reality,” she concluded.
