    [size=52]General amnesty...a law stuck between the jaws of controversy and obstruction[/size]

    [size=45]After Parliament failed to elect a new president in its extraordinary session held last Wednesday, the Taqadum Party warned against procrastinating the discussion and approval of the “General Amnesty Law,” especially after the dismissal of its president from the House of Representatives.[/size]
    [size=45]The leader of the party, Anwar Al-Alwani, said in an interview with (Al-Mada), “The Federal Court’s decision that removed Muhammad Al-Halbousi from the House of Representatives will lead to obstructing and delaying the approval of the general amnesty law.”[/size]
    [size=45]“malicious” claims[/size]
    [size=45]He adds, “The general amnesty is the most important humanitarian law that the Iraqi street hopes to pass, especially in the liberated provinces.”[/size]
    [size=45]The leader of the Taqaddam Party calls on the Iraqi Parliament to “read and legislate the laws included in the political agreement paper that led to the formation of the government.”[/size]
    [size=45]He is counting on “the general amnesty law to be on the agenda of the House of Representatives in the coming sessions,” considering the law “relates to the lives of people and detainees who died (as a result of) the secret informant and malicious lawsuits,” (according to him).[/size]
    [size=45]It is noteworthy that Iraq has enacted more than one amnesty law during the past years, including the General Amnesty Law of 2016, but objections to the law remain, because there are many who were classified as terrorists and whose confessions were forcefully extracted during the investigation, according to political forces.[/size]
    [size=45]Parliamentary “deportation”.[/size]
    [size=45]The Parliamentary Legal Committee announced last Sunday the transfer of the general amnesty law to the next legislative year.[/size]
    [size=45]Committee member Ahmed Fawaz said, “The general amnesty law is one of the important laws, and it needs political consensus and agreement before it is included on the agenda of the House of Representatives,” noting “the necessity of creating the atmosphere within the Parliamentary Legal Committee for its approval by its members before sending it to the Presidency of the House to present the law.” On the Parliament’s agenda.”[/size]
    [size=45]Fawaz pointed out that “the current time does not allow for discussing it due to the Council’s commitment to the legislative recess. Therefore, the general amnesty law will be carried over to the new legislative term of the next legislative year.”[/size]
    [size=45]“vague” version[/size]
    [size=45]For his part, a member of the Parliamentary Legal Committee, Muhammad Al-Khafaji, said in an interview with (Al-Mada), “The general amnesty law has been enacted since 2016 and includes many categories specified in the law for those sentenced to life imprisonment or otherwise according to conditions, most notably the absence of indebtedness to public funds and the waiver of the victims’ families.” Personally,” he pointed out, “The version proposed for amendment is ambiguous and unclear.”[/size]
    [size=45]Al-Khafaji adds, “The sensitivity of the general amnesty law is the possibility that some dangerous elements may adapt and be placed under the law, but we have high confidence in the Iraqi judiciary in implementing the laws,” noting that “the draft law contains exceptions, namely those accused of terrorism, international crimes, and drugs.”[/size]
    [size=45]Political warning[/size]
    [size=45]Other political forces warn against including “terrorists and those accused of serious crimes” in the new draft of the general amnesty law.[/size]
    [size=45]The representative of the Fatah Alliance, Fadel Al-Fatlawi, said in a statement followed by (Al-Mada), that “the draft amendment to the general amnesty law is being studied and circulated in the corridors of Parliament by the Parliamentary Legal Committee,” noting that “there are political parties trying to pressure to include all prisoners, even if They were terrorists and those who were arrested while they were in the ranks of the terrorist organization ISIS.”[/size]
    [size=45]It is noteworthy that the Council of Ministers voted last July to prepare a new draft of the draft general amnesty law, which represents one of the most prominent demands of the Sunni political forces, in accordance with the political agreement paper on the basis of which the current government was formed.[/size]
