SULAIMANI (ESTA) — An edict from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) on Sunday revealed that Azhi Amin has been “ousted” from the party since August this year.
The edict has been signed by PUK President Bafel Talabani in which Azhi Amin whose original name is Salman Nadr, an ex-member of the PUK committee of General Studies, has been ousted on August 8, 2022.
It also revealed the reason for Amin’s oust, saying that he violated the PUK by-law. “Amin was worked in contrast to the by-law as well as the party’s interests.”
For that reason, an official paper has been submitted regarding Amin’s case to the presidency of the PUK, and President Talabani passed the mandate on August, 11.
According to the edict, since then Amin has been deemed as “ousted” from the PUK.
Despite being an ex-member of the PUK General Studies Committee, Amin was appointed as head of the PUK intelligence in early July 2021. He held the position for a very short period.
Back then, Kurdistan Region Deputy Prime Minister Qubad Talabani appointed Amin as the new head of the Protection and Information/Information Agency. However, he had been “ousted” due to the “violations” that he has done.
