BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Parliamentary Iraqiya bloc Chairman Salman al-Jumaili stated that his bloc will follow up the finance minister Rafi' al-Issawi's case, as well re-opening vice-president Tariq al-Hashimi's case.
Jumaili, during a press conference, followed up by Aswat al-Iraq, reviewed the developments of Issawi's case and the steps to be taken by his bloc.
Last Thursday reports said that a number of finance minister Rafi' al-Issawi's bodyguards were arrested for terrorism charges, while Issawi's closed circles called for peaceful demonstrations in protest for such arrests.
Iraqiya bloc held an emergency meeting, during which Premier Nouri al-Maliki was criticized for "attacking the Sunni sect"., as stated later.
Finance Minister Rafi' al-Issawi called for the resignation of Maliki and called the parliament to withdraw confidence from the government, which was initiated few months earlier.
