Subject :Iraqi President is a Dual-Citizen, Cheating Iraqi Institutions and Public
Dear Teresa McHenry , Respectfully
Please, accept wormiest greetings form the Iraqi National Center for Legal and Judiciary
Studies and Research. The Center is registered and licensed by the Iraqi Prime Minister’s
office for non-governmental organizations.
I would like to inform you that Iraqi president, Mr. Barham Salih is a U.S and British
citizen from Iraqi origins. Effective 2005, The Iraqi constitution prohibited senior
political positions to be filled out by dual-citizen candidates. Mr. Salih has cheated the
Iraqi institutions, and the Iraqi public, by announcing that he renounced his British
citizenship, as shown in the attached official documents. Everyone knows that according
the U.K.’s Neutralization Law, a person can renounce his citizenship, but apply later for
the citizenship to be reinstated for a fee. He can do just that when his term is over.
But more importantly, Mr. Salih purposely did not disclose his U.S. citizenship, to
circumvent the Constitution requirements, and to cheat the Iraqi institutions and public, to
achieve his ambitions for power. This is done in violation of the people’s constitutional
and legal rights, for pure personal gains, and away from any U.S. authorities scrutiny.
This act of deception has gone unchecked, while free and innocent Iraqis are being
slaughtered by the hands of official authorities and pro-governmental militia, for
exercising their rights to protest, and for demanding holding the criminal leaderships
accountable. As the president and constitution defender, Mr. Salih is responsible for
doing that, in addition to the Prime Mistier, who is also a French-Iraq citizen.
On the other hand, the Iraqi judiciary is broken. It’s involved in criminal and twisted acts
against the Iraqi people. It rejects carrying out its constitutional obligations of holding
politicians accountable. The influence of those politicians protects them, and they are
shielded behind security institutions and criminal militias.
Thus, our center and all activists in Iraq and the U.S. are kindly requesting answers to the
1- Are the U.S. authorities aware of the Iraqi president’s lies and manipulation to
assume his position?
2- Are the U.S. authorities aware that president Salih renounced his British
citizenship but did not disclose his U.S. citizenship?
3- Are the U.S authorities aware of the incident that president Salih renounced his
British citizenship, but concealed his U.S. citizenship?
4- Are the U.S. authorities aware that the Iraqi constitution obligated the Iraqi
president to bear responsibility of all constitution violations and humanitarian
scandals against the Iraqi people and Iraq’s national interest?
5- Are the U.S. authorities aware that Mr. Salih did not win in the parliamentary
elections, even in his own Kurdish province, Sulaimaniya?
6- Are the U.S. authorities aware that his lose of elections motivated him to expose
fraud acts, but as soon as he received the offer to assume the president’s office, he
changed his mind and his party? All that for power and personal gain.
7- Are the U.S. authorities aware that giving him presidency was by the orders of,
and in coordination with, the Iranian criminal general Suleimani, who is accused
of killing hundreds of U.S. soldiers and thousands of Iraqis, along with Iran’s
stooges in Iraq, when the U.S. troops were present in Iraq?
8- Are the U.S. authorities aware that he was one of the leaderships that provided
protection to the criminal militias that killed Iraqi protesters in front of national
and international press cameras?
9- Are the U.S. authorities aware that Mr. Salih’s quest for power is merely for
personal gains, not out of respect to the Iraqi identity?
10- Are the U.S. authorities aware that Mr. Salih was first to approve the Kurdistan
separation from Iraq, on October 2017, committing a federal crime by the Iraqi
11- Are the U.S. authorities aware that Mr. Salih used his position as prime minister,
in 2004, to abolish the Iraqi judiciary jurisdiction, that Ambassador Bremer
approved, on Iraqi minister accused of corruption? This is done in violation of the
transitional period law that gave all powers to the prime minister at the time.
12- Are the U.S. authorities aware that president Salih appointed advisors from
prominent businessmen, with or without pay, just to give them favor for their
personal gains on the expense of the public? He enabled them to gang-control
Iraqi resources, gave them presidential immunity, and protected them from
security institutions, militias and accountability..
13- Are the U.S. authorities aware of the atrocities that president Salih overlooked,
including massacres against innocents in Iraq? He falsely tries to distant himself
by meeting with criminal leaders with the excuse that he was holding them
responsible accountable, without due judiciary process.
14- Are the human and constitutional violations committed by the U.S. citizen
Barham Salih within the U.S. judiciary jurisdiction?
15- Are the U.S. authorities aware that president Salih is the first Iraqi president holds
U.S. citizenship and is responsible for the distraction and corruption in Iraq?
Along with the rest of the governmental gangs, they destroyed the American
project to liberate the Iraqi people and build democratic state.
16- Is anybody from the US government told our president that the president of the
most corrupt country in Iraq is holding US citizen before he meets him at the
United Nations on September 24, 2014.?
Dear the Chief of this department ,
Iraqis might understand that you lost more than four thousand soldiers, many more
wounded, and trillions of dollars spent to rebuild Iraq and achieving its national identity.
However, Iraqis are in rage because millions were killed, wounded, displaced or sought
refuge in other countries. They continue to live in hardship and disillusionment with their
children’s future, because of their leaderships- on top of them is Barham Salih. He does
not have any regard to the situation of the Iraqi people, let alone their future, as long as he
is immunized by the British and U.S. citizenships and potentials.
Should the U.S. authorities not hold its fellow citizens, the president of Iraq and other
security and civil leaderships, accountable, they wouldn’t tolerate us, and we would lose
what is left of our reputation in Iraq and the Middle-East. Moreover, the U.S. action
against its fellow citizen Barham Salih will give a lesson to other Iraqi-American leaders,
who have been, and still are, the reason for the destruction, corruption and baptizing the
culture of destroying the Iraqi identity, and Iraqis raise the motto “Looking for a Home.”
This is especially important because everyone knows that it is impossible t hold Mr.
Salih, and other criminal figures in Iraq, accountable by the Iraqi broken judiciary
system, which is also colluding with them in manipulating the constitution and laws for
the benefit of political and religious criminal figures.
We’re attaching the record of the president of Iraq, Barahm Ahmed Salih, 59 years old,
and his family, as shown by truthfinder.com, which extracted personal and financial
records from the states of Maryland and Virginia. We cannot determine the wealth of Mr.
Salih inside and outside Iraq, which he is obligated by the law to disclose.
Please find attached a copy of official bulletin published on the official Iraqi presidency
site shows that he renounced his British citizenship.
Thank you for cooperate in this human issue and don’t hesitate to contact me for any
