"
He added, "It is a matter of disapproval that these militias announced, in a frank statement, two days ago, that they are putting their elements in the arenas to confront the demonstrators without seeing a reaction from the official security authorities to deter them from committing their heinous crime. And I left it under the officials ’eyes.
Al-Ani indicated that "the resignation of the Prime Minister and the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces will not excuse him from judicial accountability for the systematic killing that takes place under his government, nor will he prevent him from international accountability if the Iraqi judiciary fails to carry out his duty towards these crimes."
