Party Told to Vacate Offices

August 11, 2004|From Reuters

BAGHDAD — Iraq's government ordered the Iraqi National Congress to vacate its headquarters, days after a judge issued warrants against party leader Ahmad Chalabi and a nephew, INC spokesman Haidar Moussawi said Tuesday.

The INC took over the former intelligence headquarters in Baghdad after the U.S.-led invasion last year.

Chalabi founded the INC as an exile group opposing then-President Saddam Hussein.

Chalabi denies charges of counterfeiting, and his nephew Salem Chalabi denies charges of murder.
