The attempt to assassinate Karwan ...

The attempt to assassinate Karwan Kamal, a lawyer and civil society activist, at 11pm on 26/06/2011, proofed one more time, the concerns voiced by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, Reporters without Borders, the EU and other international organizations about the deterioration of the respect, protection and fulfillment of human rights in Iraqi Kurdistan Region. It is shameful that the Kurdistan Regional Government is providing one excuse after another, for the continued "defamation" of Kurdistan by those reports through its apathy and unwillingness to find and sue those terrorists who are committing intimidations against civil society activists and make their names and affiliations public.

This recent terrorist attack is targeting a young, enthusiastic and caring lawyer who volunteered as an unpaid attorney for the families of the victims of February 7th. This attack is a terrifying message for all of the freedom seekers in Kurdistan and it is a clear statement about the unfounded claims of security and prosperity in the region. Karwan Kamal, the young lawyer who took on the cases of unarmed demonstrators shot dead in Sulaimaniyah last February, is in intensive care following a brutal assault on Sunday night.

We therefore, strongly condemn the attempts at taking Karwan Kamal from us, without any legal or moral penalties or consequences to face the perpetrators.

Attacks on human rights defenders must not be tolerated."
Kamal had just left a restaurant with a friend and was collecting his car from a nearby car park at around 11:30 p.m. when the shooting took place. A gunman in traditional Kurdish dress fired five bullets at close range, one of which hit the human rights lawyer in his left leg, causing him to be rushed to hospital.
His friend and a car park employee were injured by shrapnel when another of the bullets hit a concrete wall.
A second individual is said to have been waiting in a car and then to have helped the gunman escape the scene after firing.
Kamal told Amnesty International that he had not received any threats prior to the attack, but that he knows of others who have received anonymous threats for supporting those involved in protests earlier this year.
