Parliament

The Kurdistan Parliament plays a central role in our activities, including approving our annual budget.

Parliamentary Committees, including the Security and Defense and the Committee on Human Rights, regularly meet with Council Members and visit our premises to ensure the law is upheld. The Committee on Human Rights visits detention facilities to follow up individual cases and reports.

The Kurdistan Region Security Council has in the past invited Parliamentary Committees to oversee intelligence activities and individual cases. The objective is to ensure the Kurdistan Parliament is informed of our activities. We are open to independent investigations.
