According to Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan’s December 9th 2017 statement; on November 17, Iraqi government is responsible for the lives of two Kidnapped Iranian Kurdish opposition in Iraq. International Community International Human Right Organizations, According to Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan’s December 9th 2017 statement; on November 17, 2017 two members of this party were on regular trip to Erbil, the capital of KRG, and mistakenly entered an Iraqi check point on Kirkuk’s territory. The check point was under the control of Hashed Al Shabi (MPF), The militias illegally and immediately detained Rashid Afshari and Saad Moazez in an unknown location. As stated in the Komalah’s press release “the detainees were traveling with legal documentation and they had no intention to breach any laws or regulations of the country. Due to many evidences, Mr. Afsahari and Mr. Moazez were kidnapped by MPF thus, unfortunately their destiny is unpredictable and in great danger”. During the last few weeks, Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan has tried all available means and paths, to find the location of its kidnapped members. However, all of the party’s endeavors have failed to lead to the two’s release. Therefore, we the signatory of this petition call on the international community, Iraqi authorities and human rights INGOs/IGOs to put pressure on the Iraqi government to free the aforementioned detainees. Iraq is a signatory member of many international laws, declarations’ and protocols, hence, the Iraqi government should accept its legal responsibilities and release Mr. Moazez and Mr. Afsari.
