ERBIL - The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) has asserted that the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary- General for Iraq Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert has not submitted any reports on the recent anti-government protests in the country to the Security Council.
"The United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) asserts that the SRSG did not submit any report or statement to the Security Council on these demonstrations," reads a statement.
This comes as the Iraqi protesters have once again returned to the streets, demanding for improved public services, including electricity, which is the top demand during the hot summer.
"UNAMI is monitoring the situation and stands by the right of demonstrators to peacefully express their legitimate demands," the press release added. "Now, as always, we call for peaceful demonstrators to be protected."
The demonstrations first began in October last year and resumed until the outbreak of the coronavirus in Iraq, during which hundreds of protesters were killed and about 27,000 others were injured.
