Canada, Australia arrest 4 people who tried to blackmail an Iraqi deputy

The arrests took place in the Australian cities of Sydney and Edmonton, in the west of the country, as part of an investigation that was coordinated between the security forces in both countries following a series of attacks targeting a Sydney home, and an attempt to blackmail via the Internet from Canada.


The Australian police said that these crimes targeted the family of an unnamed “senior Iraqi political official,” saying only that he holds two Australian and Iraqi nationalities and “resides most of the time in Iraq.”


According to Australian media, this politician is Ahmed Al-Asadi who currently serves as a Member of Parliament for Baghdad, and is a former official spokesman for Popular Mobilization Forces.
