The Politician Izzat Shabandar Arrived to Baghdad From the United Arab Emirates
BAGHDAD, Sources said that the politician Izzat Shabandar arrived at Baghdad International Airport from the United Arab Emirates.
The Secretary-General of the Movement of Asaib Ahl al-Haq Qais al-Khazali, confirmed the detention of the UAE authorities of Iraqi politician Izzat Shabandar, while launching a scathing attack on Mohammed bin Zayed.
"Mohammed bin Zayed's detention of Iraqi politician Ezzat Shabandar is similar to what Mohammed bin Salman did to detain Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Al-Hariri," Khazali said in a tweet.
"But the fool missed that the UAE is not Saudi Arabia, and Iraq is not Lebanon."
An informed source, who declined to be named, confirmed, "I have been informed that the UAE is holding independent politician Izzat Shabandar for the fifth day in a Dubai hotel and withdrawing his passport."
