Mohammed Al-Dainy: victim of Maliki’s repression and sectarianism

by UNITED NATIONS and Dirk Adriaensens on 13-11-2021

Mohammed al-Dainy was elected in the Iraqi legislative election, December 2005 as one of the eleven MPs of the secular Iraqi National Dialogue Front party. In February 2009, two of his bodyguards were arrested on suspicion of involvement in the 2007 Iraqi Parliament bombing and other attacks. Alaa Khairallah Hashim, his security chief and Ryadh Ibrahim al-Dainy, his nephew, confessed on television and said the MP had given authorization for the bomber to enter the parliament area. Mohammed al-Dainy claimed that the accusations were lies and that his bodyguards had been tortured into making a false confession because he had been disclosing human rights abuses in Iraqi prisons. He had to flee the country. Read the whole story and relevant UN reports at http://www.brusselstribunal.org/Al-Dayni.htm. URL of the full UN report underneath: http://www.ipu.org/pdf/hrres191_en.pdf
