Salar Mahmoud said on Tuesday, in a special statement to PUKmedia that "we remember every year the crime of Anfal and renew our condemnation of this crime, which was carried out by the criminal Baathist regime. We call on the regional and federal governments to work seriously on the Anfal file and compensate the families of the martyrs."


"The authorities must return the remains of the Anfal victims from the mass graves to the Kurdistan Region. DNA tests must be done for the remains to be buried officially." Mahmoud Added


The Presidential Adviser regretted that the areas of the Anfal victims in Garmian and Kirkuk were exposed to the dangers of ISIS terrorist attacks, calling for the intensification of security efforts to protect those areas.


Mahmoud noted that he recalled the Anfal crime by placing a wreath of roses on the Anfal monument in Garmian and planting a tree on this occasion, without holding memorial ceremonies amid the coronavirus Pandemic to abide by the preventive instructions.
