"February Youths" movement considers suing Maliki's government in ICC
6/4/2011 9:13 PM

BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: The February Youths Movement is looking into suing Premier Nouri al-Maliki's government at the International Criminal Court in the Hague for violating human rights, freedom of expression, peaceful demonstrations and the Geneva Convention, as stated by the Movement.


In a statement, as received by Aswat al-Iraq, the Movement said "we are studying the case, particularly using ambulances for other purposes, that were not for medical reasons."

It called on national and  international organizations, particularly Lawyers Without Borders, to facilitate their presence at the court to raise the case.


The movement charged security forces of arresting four of the demonstrators and transporting them in an ambulance on 25 May, 2011 during a peaceful demonstration at Tahreer Square in Baghdad.


The demonstration was demanding political, economic and services reforms.


"We are trying with our friends at the NGOs to release the four detainees, but we express our fears that they were subjected to torture."
