A Spanish judge summons 4 more Iraqis for attack on Iranian refugees

Madrid, 25 March (EFE) – Judge Fernando Andreu of the Spanish national court has charged two Iraqi soldiers and two government representatives in Iraq for an armed attack on Iranian refugees in Camp Ashraf in 2009. They have all been summoned to testify on May 31.


The assault, perpetrated on July 28, 2009, resulted in 11 deaths.

The Spanish judge declared admissible the complaint expanding an earlier case.

The lawsuit was filed by two individuals against Iraqi Army Lt. Gen. Abdol Hossein Al Shemmari, which the plaintiffs accuse of eleven counts of murder, 36 counts of illegal detention, torture and causing severe injuries to some 500 people.

Andreu, who declared the court competent to investigate these events after asking Iraq to report on whether it had launched a probe into the attack, summoned the president and director of the government Committee for the Closure of Ashraf, Sadeq Ali al Yaseri and Mohammad Kazem, respectively, as well as Lieutenant Colonel Nezar and Lieutenant Haydar Azab Mashi.
