BAGHDAD – The Shi’ite militia group Hashd al-Shaabi continues to kidnap civilians in areas under their control. Amnesty international has previously accused the group of committing war crimes against Sunni Muslims.


Member of the Iraqi Parliamentary Committee for Security and Defence Affairs Shakhawan Abdullah told BasNews that they have launched an investigation into the cases of several Kurdish civilians kidnapped by Shi’ite militias.

Abdullah revealed that in the most recent case, Hashd al-Shaabi kidnapped a Kurdish resident of Erbil and demanded $100,000 for his release.

“His family paid the ransom but he is yet to be released.” He said.

“More than 80 people have so far been reported to be detained by the Shi’ite militias, some of which have been released for huge amounts of money while others’ fates remain unknown.”

Abdullah explained that their committee has interrogated people in charge of several checkpoints but all refuted the allegations of wrongdoing by the Shi’ite militias.

Four Kurdish members of the Iraqi presidential guard were kidnapped near Khurmatu earlier in May. Kurdish officials accuse Hashd al-Shaabi of arresting the guards.

Kurdish Member of the Iraqi Parliament Adil Nouri told BasNews that they have obtained information confirming that the Shi’ite militias have kidnapped presidential guards and they are developing negotiations with the militias.

“They are asking $280,000 for the release of the four guards which their families cannot afford,” Nouri added.
