In a statement, the council said that "it was decided today, Tuesday, to establish a judicial investigative commission specializing in the investigation of assassination crimes in the capital, Baghdad, and in the rest of the provinces, in coordination with the Ministry of Interior."0
He added, "The commission is made up of three judges and one public prosecutor."
The commission was formed after several assassinations of political activists, the most recent of which was the assassination of a prominent security expert, Hisham al-Hashemi.
The Iraqi Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, has pledged to hand over the Al-Hashemi killers and bring them to justice, stressing that his government will stop the scene of assassinations in the country.
