Kurdish Alliance denounces intruding Issawi's offices BAGHDAD/ Aswat al-Iraq: Parliamentary Kurdish Alliance denounced today intruding the offices of finance minister Rafi' al-Issawi, calling these actions as "violating constitutional and legal values of the Iraqi state". Head of the bloc MP Muhsin al-Sdoun, said, in a statement, copy received by Aswat al-Iraq, that the Alliance supports any judicial order provided that they should have their independence and neutrality among political interactions". Interior ministry announced, earlier, the implementation of judicial warrant to arrest 10 persons of finance minister's bodyguards, with prior knowledge of minister Rafi' al-Issawi. Minister Issawi charged "militias" of kidnapping his bodyguards, calling Premier Nouri al-Maliki to protect them. In a statement by the Interior Ministry, it added that only the wanted persons were arrested according to military discipline. The arrest was made upon terrorism charges, while pro-Issawi elements called for peaceful demonstrations in Anbar province in his support. Iraqiya bloc will hold an emergency session to discuss the current situation and its implications. 386
