Arrest warrant against Kirkuk's Ribwar Talabani cancelled

The judicial authorities decided to cancel the arrest warrant issued earlier by the Kirkuk misdemeanor court against acting head of the provincial council Ribwar Talabani.

The Kirkuk misdemeanors court ordered in December the arrest of Talabani over charges including corruption, waste of public money, and raising the flag of Kurdistan in Kirkuk.

Talabani was sentenced to six months in prison in absentia, according to a decision by the Supreme Judicial Council of Iraq, before he could appear before the court, according to reports, and get his arrest warrant cancelled.
