Russian ombudsman Vladimir Lukin is greatly concerned over the election results that remain unpublished in Iraq
"The election returns are too long in coming. This delayed count of votes is not gladdening but instead makes one think," Mr. Lukin told RIA Novosti after meeting with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour. "Just think what would happen if election returns remained uncounted for such a long time in Russia or neighboring countries, what would they tell us and with good reason?" he asked. Mr. Lukin believes that human rights, above all the right to live, are not being observed in Iraq. "The force which has undertaken on its own initiative without UN consent to decide the problem of Iraq is far from reaching its end," Mr. Lukin said. "The goal declared for the Iraq operation was to protect its people from the tyrannical regime, ensure their security and guarantee all the rights until they can undertake it," Mr. Lukin stressed. "Has it been carried out in practice? No, it has not. People are being killed every day, anarchy and violence are reigning is some regions. This is the main problem," he said.
