NCRI – Belgium Senator Karl Vanlouwe, the president of Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in the Belgian Senate has written to the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urging him to “call the Iraqi government to immediately release these hostages and put them under UN protection.”
Senator Vanlouwe wrote: “Seven innocent refugees including six women have been taken hostage by the Iraqi forces last week and are reported to be on their way to be extradited to Iran.”
” We must make sure that Iraq will authorize a comprehensive independent genuine UN investigation into this crime. Had there been an investigation into the previous attacks on these refugees, this new tragedy could have been avoided.”
The text of the letter is published in Senator Karl Vanlouwe’s website.
