Hashemi responds to Interpol's 'red notice'
Iraqi VP Tarik al-Hashemi has commented on the red notice as follows:
"With all my respect to the Interpol international efforts dedicated in pursuing criminals and suspects , I was expecting that interpol management spare more efforts and time in examining and testing Iraqi government fabricated and alleged crime charges against me , prior issuing notice in question , it wasn’t necessary to rush , I am still suspect , means innocent untill proved guilty , which still premature .
Confirming once more that my case is exclusively baseless and politicaly motivated , and all charges , repeat all charges are faulse and ungrounded , which case , I am ready to prove that through fair trial at any time and place .
It is becoming well known that Iraqi judicial sustem has lost integrity and no longer impartial , which repeatedly confirmed by various well reputable international organisations , accordingly many countries do not take care of such notices soonest they discover that it has been based on iraqi advise or notification . The Interpol management no doubt aware about these facts which should have been taken into consideration before issuing said
Persuant to that , lawyers intend to challenge circular legally in the coming days after compiling relevant information
Development was not surprising , regadless I am still free as notice is not represents an arrest warrant , it merely reflects charges al-Maliki and the deeply politicized judicial systemfabricated against me .
On the othe hand and its realy becoming phenomena , as while al-Maliki experiencing generousity and flexibility in releasing highly currapted and real killers and terrorists, he is on the other hand escalating against clean hand and nobel record politions , but last minute manouvre will never salvage him from a definate collapse , in the mean time Iraqi peaple look forward to Iraqi patriotic leaders to find a fair and fast way out of the current crises , besides they should be very carefull and never trust almaliki tricks .
I shall never give up despite pressure or blackmaling , I am not on the run , and realy feel confidant to the wide scale moral support that enjoing on international level , which enhancing my ambition to fulfill my commitment in surving my country and my peaple ."
