The Political Bureau of the Central Committee of Iraqi Communist Party has issued a statement (19th August 2009) strongly condemning the criminal bombings and mortar attacks in Baghdad today that killed in cold blood dozens and wounded hundreds of innocent people.
The statement said that murderers, who carried out these horrific crimes, are the enemies of the people, democracy and the ongoing political process. "The remnants of the Baath, al-Qaida, militias and organized crime groups are responsible for these atrocities that have escalated recently." It called upon the government, and the military and security forces, to intensify efforts to protect the citizens, as it is their first duty, and to punish the criminals.
"The political forces and parties must abandon political jockeying and unprincipled polarization, which these criminals are exploiting to implement their sinister designs. The citizens are also required to cooperate fully with the relevant bodies and report early on the criminals."
The statement concluded by strongly condemning the heinous crimes and calling for the pursuit of the criminals and bringing them to justice.
