The Iraqi government is waiting for an announcement to begin to prosecute those responsible for suppressing the protests
"The failure to announce the results of the investigation into the events of the demonstrations has nothing to do with the pressures, but the investigation committee ended its work a few hours ago and the results of the investigation are expected to be revealed very soon," Hadithi told Shafaq News.
He pointed out that "Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi, will adopt this report in making a series of decisions with regard to the issue and accountability and prosecution of each party and a person proved in the report that he committed legal violations or minors in the events that occurred during the demonstrations, or committed any form of crimes, against the demonstrators Or against members of the security forces or against public or private money. "
The Iraqi government spokesman added that "Abdul-Mahdi will take a number of decisions against the background of the report of the investigative committee, and refer the negligent to the competent judicial authorities to issue appropriate penalties against them and take decisions in order to send messages reassuring that the Iraqi government is determined to address anyone who caused casualties in the demonstrations."
Iraqi security forces violently confronted protests in several cities earlier this month that killed more than 100 people and wounded 6,000.
