Arrest warrant issued for Iraq's vice president: official

Tuesday December 20, 2011 08:10:39 AM, IANS

Baghdad: The Iraqi Supreme Judicial Council, which is country's highest judicial body, has issued an arrest warrant for Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi, said an interior ministry official Monday.

The warrant has been issued based on Article Four of the country's anti-terrorism law, without giving a timeframe for the implementation, Xinhua reported.

"The judiciary panel (formed by the council) of five judges issued an arrest warrant for the vice president of the Republic," said Interior Ministry spokesman Major General Adel Daham in a press conference.

The ministry, at the press conference, presented confessions of three detained suspects, including two of Hashimi's security guards, noting that they carried out several terror operations with the knowledge of Hashimi or under his command.

Earlier Monday, the Supreme Judicial Council reportedly banned the vice president from travelling abroad.
