Killing Of Christians In Mosul

EDM number 1118 in 2010-12, proposed by Edward Leigh on 01/12/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Iraq.

That this House is deeply concerned by the targeted assassinations of Christians in Mosul, northern Iraq, in September and October 2008, which killed at least 14 Iraqi Christians and displaced over 2,000 families from that city; notes that a Washington Times news report dated 26 October 2008 stated that on 17 October 2008 Iraqi security forces arrested six men in connection with the killings of Christians in Mosul and found that four of them had links with Kurdish Regional Government militia, not al-Qaeda; further notes that the Kurdish Regional Government and its militia are dominated by the Kurdistan Democratic Party and that on 29 October 2008, Gulf News reported that investigations had been completed, and proved the involvement of Kurdish militias in the displacement and killing of Christians, a claim which was re-stated by Iraq's Prime Minister at that time, Nouri Al Maliki, during a discussion with Iraqi lawmakers, according to Osama Al Nojaifi, a deputy in the Iraqi parliament; and, in view of such serious and widespread allegations, urges the Government to press the Iraqi government to investigate fully these allegations and publicly announce all the investigation's conclusions.

This motion has been signed by a total of 42 MPs.
