Iraqi Parl't speaker 'astonished' at PM remarks on amnesty law

Iraqi Parl't speaker and PM
Iraqi Parliament Speaker Salim al-Jabouri said on Wednesday he was astonished by the recent remarks made by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi in which he attributed the increase in the kidnappings to the parliamentary amendment to the General Amnesty Law. 

In a statement, al-Jabouri said the aim behind amending the amnesty law was to include innocent people. It is also seen as part of the national reconciliation project and one of the political settlement's items agreed upon when the Iraqi government was formed.

Also, al-Jabouri called on the Iraqi premier to announce as soon as possible the potential candidates for the interior and defense portfolios.
