Arrest warrant issued against commander of federal police

Federal Police commander Gen. Raed Shakir Jawdat
An informed source has said that an arrest warrant has been issued against commander of the Federal Police Forces Gen. Raid Shaker Jawdat.
"The inspector general of the ministry of interior has issued an arrest warrant against Jawdat after a committee had been formed to interrogate him. The latter did not show up during a hearing held by this committee," the source said.
The move comes as he faces charges of overstepping his powers by attempting to reach prime minister directly and overlook the ministry of interior.
