Iraqi Court Issues Arrest Warrant for Ayad Allawi

An informed source told FNA that the al-Iraqiya newspaper owned by Allawi - a senior Iraqi politician and the interim Prime Minister of Iraq prior to the 2005 legislative elections in the country - had published an irritant article against Alousi last year and after Alousi filed a lawsuit against the owner and editor of the newspaper, the court issued an arrest warrant for Allawi.

Deputy head of the al-Iraqiya party confirmed the news in a phone interview with FNA correspondent in Baghdad, but declined to reveal any further details.

Meantime, the Spokeswoman of al-Iraqiya Coalition, Maysoun al-Damaloujy, on Sunday denied the issuance of an arrest warrant against Allawi in the background of a case.

Damaloujy told Aswat al-Iraq that "the Leader of her Coalition, Iyad Allawi, possesses a Parliamentary immunity," denying the issuance of a court order to arrest Iyad Allawi in the background of a judicial case by the former Chairman of al-Umma Party in Wassit Province.

"We have contacted the said court, which denied the report," Damaloujy said.
