Ahrar launches new security plan
Saturday, 20 February 2010 03:10
Ahrar is the only party to have developed a comprehensive plan to bring peace and security to Iraq, which launches today in Baghdad. The plan was drawn up in consultation with former Generals and security experts, as well as the Iraqi public.
The scheme will end sectarian violence and intimidation by immediately disbanding sectarian militias, and securing Iraq's borders from outside interference. The police and army will be enlarged and improved, and anybody who commits a crime will face the full force of the law.
Ahrar Party leader Ayad Jamal Aldin said: "Security is the number one, number two and number three issue for almost all of us. The government has lost control, but today Ahrar puts forward a real plan to bring an end to the violence and intimidation that blights the lives of all Iraqis."
"With Ahrar, it is the people who hold the power. That is what scares the corrupt and foreign-controlled. Nobody should be above the law. The police and army will be the servants of the Iraqi people - and NEVER the other way around. No more bribes. No more interference from outside. These are the principles of the Ahrar Plan."
