SULAIMANIYAH, Kurdistan region 'Iraq', —  A Kurdish periodical Livin has steered up the issue of the budget of the Kurdistan president Massoud Barzani, reported Kurdish online Awene neswspaper on Monday.

The issue of the president’s budge has made the president very angry and his office stated that “the president has not received a single penny so far”, which means that the president does not function like the rest of Iraq’s civil servants.

The office of president stated that they take a legal action against

Livin however stated in its statement that the president’s language is hostile and far form any lawful language. “It is the language of conflict and contains threats on our lives and our safety. We inform the local and international organisations of this threat.”

Livin stated that knowing the president’s salary is the right of every Kurdistan citizen and in most countries around the world, including the dictatorship and totalitarian sates,
www.ekurd.netthe salary of the head of the states are known, in addition they are regulated by law. Alas the president of Kurdistan Region, Livin stated, has violated the law that is legislated by his own presidential council and himself.

On June 23, 2009, the Kurdish security forces, known as Asayish, of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), led by Massoud Barzani, the current president of Kurdistan region, collected the last issue of Livin magazine to destroy them.

Livin is an independent magazine published in Sulaimaniyah, which already has lost one journalist Soran Mama Hama, who was assassinated in Kirkuk in July 2008.

In 2007, Ahmed Mira published a cover story in his magazine Livin titled "The legacy of the sick man." The story was about the health problems of Iraqi President Jalal Talabani and a bitter leadership struggle within his political party, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK). Shortly thereafter, Mira, was arrested by Kurdistan's powerful military security. He says he was interrogated, subjected to "psychological torture," and held for 13 hours before being released.
