Al-Hasakah: Acquittal of charges of murdering a police officer

KURDWATCH, January 18, 2013—On December 13, 2012, Munzir Iskan Ahmad, Firas Jumʿah al‑Ahmad, Jiwan Yusuf Yusuf [further information on the case], and Husayn ʿAbdulkhaliq ʿAli were acquitted by the criminal court in al‑Hasakah on the charge of killing a police officer. They were sentenced to six and a half years in prison pursuant to Articles 287, 267, and 305 of the criminal code. The sentences of Ahmad and al‑Ahmad were reduced to three years due to mitigating circumstances and Amnesty Decree No. 10, dated January 15, 2012. Both were released from custody the same day. The prison terms for Yusuf und ʿAli were reduced for the same reasons, but since they have absconded, the sentence was reduced to five years only. The remainder of the sentence is still to be served.
