The family and friends of Sardasht Osman and the undersigned freedom seeking organisations and groups need your support to establish a fare investigating committee and an independent and public trial for the assassination of the young journalist Sardasht Osman in Iraqi Kurdistan.


Sardasht Osman was a 22 years old Iraqi Kurdish final-year university student from Erbil who was kidnapped on 4 May 2010 outside the College of Arts in Arbil where he studied English. Two days later his body was found in neighbouring Mosul city. His body had bruises and signs of torture and he was killed with a bullet in his mouth. He was known in Iraqi Kurdistan for writing articles criticizing the Kurdistan Regional Government; and in particular the ruling family of Barzani. Some of his articles were published under a pseudonym on several Kurdish websites. 


After almost three years of waiting, his family, friends and the whole society were shocked by the outcomes of the formed investigating committee by Massoud Barzani. According to the shocking report from this committee who alleged that Osman was “tied” to Ansar al-Islam, a Sunni-Kurdish extremist group that has claimed attacks against American and Iraqi forces. “Sardasht Osman was killed by terrorists because he had promised to work with them and then decided not to,” the committee said. They also introduced a person called Hisham Mahmoud Ismail as the main executioner and send the case to court.


Sardasht was turned from a victim of freedom of speech and a free thinking journalist in to a terrorist based on twisted, made up and vague evidences. The truth behind is murder and the reality has been twisted by a partial investigating committee.


Everyone in Iraqi Kurdistan knows that the place where Sardasht was kidnapped near his college is surrounded by Erbil security forces’ armed guards. There are several CCTV cameras operating 24 hours. Furthermore Erbil city’s borders towards other cities are much secured with various barriers and check points by the security forces. All these realties and other facts about who was Sardasht, beside all the threats and his own article about the threats and his expectations to be killed tell a very different story and introduces different evidence to those of the investigating committee. 


The final stage of this set-up was that on 27th March 2012 the first trial took place in Erbil; But this hearing was postponed to several months because of scandalous mistakes in recording dates of the arrest and the confession of the offender; during this first hearing it became very clear that the security forces in Erbil recorded a confession on 30 /08/2010 while the alleged offender was arrested on 08/09/2010, which meant that he had confessed before he was even arrested. Also from to the questioning by Sardasht’s family’ lawyer it became very clear that the offender was in prison even before Sardasht was murdered. 


All above show that this process of investigation and trial of Sardasht’s murder has been twisted, unfair and unjust, the court had acted and still is under the pressure of a political party and therefore is has lost it is very principle of independency. The next day for hearing based on the same investigation and partial court is the 20/01/2013. 


We the under signed organisations and groups urge you to put pressure on the president of Kurdish Region and the Kurdish Regional Government to meet the demands of Sardasht’s family , journalists and freedom seeking people in Iraqi Kurdistan to :


1- Stop and put an end to the current trial scenario and to discharge the biased investigating committee. 


2- Establish a new independent investigating committee formed from representatives from Sardasht’s family, none government organisations and International Human Rights organisations to launch a new investigation. This new committee need to be cooperated with and supported by KRG and the Security forces in Erbil. 


We can reassure you that Sardsaht’s murder has a direct link to the question of Freedom of Speech and Expression in Iraqi Kurdistan; therefore a fare trial, justice and the truth behind this case will have a great impact of the process of establishing a society that protects those basic rights for everyone and will have a direct impact on the security and protection of any opposition voices to the current authority. 


We urge you to show your solidarity with this mass movement and send your letters to KRG representatives in your countries or regions of work.
