Immunity to Iraqi MPFs, draft resolution
4:00 AM ADMIN
The draft resolution is designed to be submitted in the coming days to coincide with the moves to liberate Mosul city's liberation operation, the sources added.
"More than 70 MPs will sign the new immunity request", it was stated.
The news of this move stirred a state of "nervousness and fear" in the Iraqi society and the political scene.
All these circles were afraid that the new immunity law will be used to cover the reported atrocities committed against other non-Shiite components, which were regarded by PMFs as "pro-Da'ish elements".
Military reports disclosed that Mosul's liberation battle will be conducted in October next, which shall be discussed by both US president Barrack Obama and Iraqi Premier Haidar al-Ibadi during UN's annual sessions in New York this month.
An indication of the nearness of Mosul's battle was the tour made yesterday by Premier Ibadi in Qayara area, south of Mosul city.
Premier Ibadi held talks with the military commanders and made a tour inside the small city of Qayara.
On the other hand, informed sources reported US endeavors to form a province for the Christian minority in Iraq in Nineveh Plateau in post-Da'ish era.
Views on the new to be-formed province were varied, where some elements wanted to be annexed to the Kurdish region, or having its full independence and a third group wanted to be attached to the central government in Baghdad.
Fears are mounting on the post-Da'ish era in Mosul city after its liberation because it has a number of ethnic components.
Ideas called the concerned parties to have a joint dialogue to find solutions to the existing problems in Nineveh province, where some demanded that Mosul's people should decide their destination after the return of its displaced people.
