Posted on | February 20, 2009

The Council of Representatives on Thursday 19 February 2009 voted to designate Judge Dara Nur al-Din as the new Minister of Justice.
Judge Nur al-Din, as a Civil Court of Appeal judge in Baghdad, declared a decree by Saddam Hussein to be unconstitutional which led to his imprisonment in 2002.
An independent Kurd, he was member of the IGC in 2003/2004.
