BAGHDAD, — The proposal made by the Kurdistan Region's President Massoud Barzani about resolving Iraq Sunni VP Hashemi's issue is the most politically acceptable suggestion, the Kurdish Blocs Coalition (KBC) said today.

Barzani made a proposal last month to resolve Hashemi's issue politically through holding a meeting for the three presidencies along with Iraqiya List. This was considered by the State of Law Coalition as trespassing the judiciary and the lives of innocent people.

The vice chairman of the KBC Mohsen al-Saadoun told AK news: "We believe that the applications that reach Kurdistan Region calling for the delivery of Hashemi without political consensus will affect adversely the street and we're close for holding a national meeting and the meeting of the Arab summit.

"The KBC rejects the political and media bidding in Hashemi's issue," he said.

"Hashemi did not enter the Kurdistan region as a defendant but as vice president of the Republic and if Hashemi was accused he would have been prevented from traveling," he added.

Hashemi stated on Monday that he plans to stay in the Kurdistan Region unless he becomes an "embarrassment" to the Kurdish authorities.

Iraq's Central Criminal Court has set May 3 as the date for the first trail session of Hashemi and his secretary and son in law Ahmed Qahtan in absentia with three charges attributed to them. There are also 70 other people in the VP's office wanted by the courts.

Hashemi accused the Iraqi judiciary of being subject to the power of the executive after his requests to the judiciary to transfer his case from Baghdad to Kirkuk province were denied.

The Iraqi Supreme Judiciary Council issued an arrest order for Hashemi on December 19 on terrorism charges after his guards confessed the VP was involved in series of attacks.

Hashemi denied the charges and fled to Kurdistan, where he is currently under the protection of Iraqi Kurdistan regional officials.

The VP, who is a member of the Sunni-backed Iraqiya bloc,
www.ekurd.net believes Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is behind the accusations. Hashemi said previously that he may resort to the international community for assistance.

On February 16 the council announced Hashemi's involvement in 150 armed operations that targeted judges, doctors and senior officers in the ministries of defense and interior by using silent weapons and missiles.
