ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - Iraqi President Fouad Massoum on Sunday signed execution orders for offenders convicted of terrorist offenses, his spokesman announced.

Khalid Shwani, the official spokesman of Iraqi president, explained that this was the third batch of executions that Massoum had signed for terrorist offenses, but did not disclose how many were endorsed.

“Fouad Massoum, President of Iraq, signed the third waves of capital punishment,” Shwani said.
He added that the orders are for “all offenders who have been convicted of terror-related offenses.”

Shwani said that signing the orders mean that the death sentences imposed on the offenders now moves into the implementation stage.

He assured the Iraqi nation that the decisions came after a special committee had investigated the cases. 

Last year, Shwani told Rudaw that from 2006 to 2015, Iraqi courts issued execution orders for 667 individuals, of whom 170 were convicted of terror-related offenses.

Problem is, your a president of Iraq working for Iraq/Shia's and Iran influenced... Your a Kurdish traitor, you shouldn't be president for Arabs or Iraq, you should be helping the Kurdish brothers and sisters in Kurdistan regional government.. Let the Arabs and Iraqis kill eachother and solve their own problems, start building KRG borders and claim independence , Iraq is a miserable war failed state, not even a country.

Reading the comments you understand why Kurds will never be free. Even if KRG becomes a Kurdistan it will be democratic as India, where muslims are taking over. Democrazy will kill us Kurds in the end. The gypsy in Iraq moved to KRG and they have a better life then Ezidi that are the real Kurds. This is democraty, the same in Sweden where swedes or a kurd like me getting to be second class citizen after a gypsy or a ISIS supporter arab/turk. We are doomed, really. Read about Hindustan and Sikhistan and how democracy destroyed them. We need a kurdish/ezidi nationalism democracy and not European one, look at EU today. No thanks.

For Turkey only Kurds that accept to be 3rd. class citizens are brothers, all others are enemies.
