Today, Saturday, the Iraqi Ministry of Interior said that initial information regarding the death of a company director Daewoo Korean refers to his suicide.
“After examining the evidence and cameras and hearing the testimonies of witnesses, all of them from foreign nationalities and not including any Iraqi, it became clear that the initial information indicates that the director of the Korean company was committing suicide,” said the ministry’s spokesman, Major General Khaled Al-Muhanna, in a statement to the official Iraqi News Agency.
He added, “Investigations are still continuing to follow up any information that may appear in the future.”
He continued: “Basra Police Department, after receiving the news of suicide, formed a working group that included all security, intelligence, anti-crime and forensic agencies.
Yesterday, Friday, the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Iraq said: “Park Tul Hoba,” director of the South Korean Daewoo Company in charge of building the large Faw port, committed suicide by hanging in Basra.
Suspicions about the Korean director’s suicide came after the publication of photos of him hanging from a rope inside a “caravan”, where he appeared wearing formal clothes (trousers and a T-shirt), and a watch in his hand.
Political figures and blocs in Parliament called for an investigation into the incident, while others close to Iran spoke of a “conspiracy by neighboring countries to prevent the establishment of the Faw port.”
Iraqi activists and journalists spoke of “the company has recently received threats and blackmail operations from influential parties inside and outside Basra Governorate.”
The company executing the port of Faw during the tenure of former Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi was subjected to pressure and threats from armed groups, forcing it to stop its work several times.
This is the second suicide incident for the director of a giant South Korean company operating in Iraq, as the director of the STX company for the manufacture of turbines and stations preceded him before last year.
