BAGHDAD, — "The incident of kidnapping and killing Sardasht Osman is the first of its kind in Kurdistan region, and arresting the perpetrators is very important for the benefit of the region”, Mahmoud Othman, the Kurdish politician and leader in Kurdistan Alliance said on Friday.

"The security services must speed up in revealing the offenders.... The case caused great reactions, as foreign and European journalists sent a letter to the president of Kurdistan region Massoud Barzani after the incident."

Revealing who did the crime is important for the region because it would reveal the party responsible for the killing of the 23 young journalist, he added.                 

Dr Mahmoud Othman
Arresting the perpetrators would put an end to mutual recriminations and reveal the real party that carried out this crime. It will also prove the success of security forces in apprehending the criminals, maintenance of security and prevent the re-occurrence of more similar crimes."

On the fourth of May 2010 the young journalist Sardasht Osman was abducted in broad daylight outside Hawler University in Erbil in Northern Iraq. Four armed and hooded persons forced him into a car and 36 hours later his tortured body was found in Mosul. He had two bullet holes in the head.

The Kurdish journalist Sardasht Osman was critical of the Kurdistan regional government KRG and its head, Massoud Barzani.

He wrote extensively on how corrupted Barzani’s government has become. But it seems the Barzanis – the powerful tribe which Massoud leads – could not tolerate his criticism,

Sardasht Osman's last article, "I will marry Barzani's daughter" was a satire of the privileges you would carry if you did belong to the family of the Kurdish Prime Minister Barzani and the death threats the young journalist had been receiving would also stop.
