HEWLÊR-Erbil, Iraq’s Kurdistan region,— The British Consulate-General to Iraqi Kurdistan capital of Erbil has expressed concern over the killing of Kurdish journalist Wedat Hussein Ali, whose body was found in Duhok Governorate over the weekend.
The consulate issued a statement on Monday saying the U.K. supports a “thorough investigation” into the kidnapping and death of Roj News journalist.
“We are saddened to hear of the killing of Roj News journalist Wedat Hussein Ali,” the statement read. “A free and independent press is a critical part of any democratic society.”

The Independent Commission for Human Rights in the Kurdistan Region denounced Ali’s kidnapping and murder and called on the authorities to bring the perpetrators to justice.
The commission also urged security institutions to launch a precise investigation into the incident and determine how the journalist was kidnapped and murdered.
Ali, a reporter for the pro-Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) news outlet, Roj News, was found dead on August 13 on the Duhok-Semel highway with reported signs of torture.
Ali, 28, was found dead several hours after giving his brother a ride to work in Duhok’s Melta neighborhood.
Iraqi Kurdistan has been sharply criticised by rights groups for infringing on free speech over the past years.
On January 16, 2016 A Kurdistan advocacy group said that it registered 173 cases of violations against journalists in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region in 2015.
In 2010 the Kurdish journalist Sardasht Osman was critical of the Kurdistan regional government KRG and its head, Massoud Barzani. He found dead later in 2010.

He wrote extensively on how corrupted Barzani’s government has become. But it seems the Barzanis – the powerful tribe which Massoud leads – could not tolerate his criticism, particularly in an article which appeared in the online journal, Kurdistan Post.
Sardasht Osman’s last article, “I am in love with Massoud Barzani’s daughter” was a satire of the privileges you would carry if you did belong to the family of the Kurdish president Barzani.
