BAGHDAD, — Iraq’s Sunni Vice President Tareq al-Hashimi is involved in about 150 armed operations in Iraq, including car bombs, assassinations, and attacks on Iranian visitors to Shiite religious shrines, Iraqi Jurisdiction Council said Thursday.

The new charges come as Mr Hashimi is still in hiding from the authorities on grounds that the charges against him are political and courts in Baghdad are not independent.

The high court in Baghdad issued an arrest warrant against Hashimi in December on terror charges and for maintaining death squads. Al-Hashimi has rejected the charges and has called for his trial to be held in Kurdistan Region or the mainly Sunni province of Kirkuk in the north.

“The investigative commission probing into Tareq al-Hashimi’s case has established the involvement of al-Hashimi’s guards in 150 armed operations under the guidance of Hashimi himself” said spokesman for the Council, Abdul Sattar al-Bayraqdar in a press conference held in Baghdad.

He said the guards of al-Hahismi, who are currently in detention of the Baghdad authorities, have admitted to “assassinating high-ranking security officers,
www.ekurd.net doctors, and Iranian visitors, in addition to carrying out car bomb attacks… placing IEDs that targeted army and police patrols and government officials”

Among the attacks allegedly carried out by al-Hashimi’s death squads is the suicide attack in 2010 near Baghdad’s al-A’ima bridge in al-Aadhamiyah area which targeted Shiite mourners during the al-Imam al-Kadhim ceremonies. And the killing of al-Sharqiyah TV representative Walid Ja’az in 2006.

Al-Bayraqdar called on the families of the victims to head to courts to file law suits against al-Hashimi.
