Media Center of the Supreme Judicial Council reveals on what was published by some of media regarding (the parliament has not received requests for waivers immunity of any member).

The Supreme Judicial Council  has sent by Presidency of  Public Prosecution request for waivers of immunity of (10) members of parliament on charges of administrative corruption during their tenure  in executive positions and it has sent request for waivers of immunity of (11) members on other crimes not  related to administrative corruption. The Supreme Judicial Council has replied the Committee of Integrity at the Council of Representatives on sending a list of those  required to waive immunity and it has been done.

It stressed that the Supreme Judicial Council takes into account the privacy of political and social situation of the members of parliament whose immunity has required to be waived especially their legal situation is still in stage of investigation and trial and they have not convicted by final judgment yet so that their names can be released

The Supreme Judicial Council  reveals that it follows this approach in general regarding not to release information may harm a certain person until information are proved according to final judicial judgments.

It pointed that anyone who is willing to ensure the veracity of communications regarding the request for waivers of immunity can call upon the certain administrative bodies at the presidency of Council of Representatives.
