   BAGHDAD, Sept. 20 (Xinhuanet) -- An Iraqi judge said court would summon the interior minister and intelligence chief over complaints filed against them, Al Sabah newspaper reported Monday.

   Judge Zuhair Al Maliky, investigative judge in the special criminal court, said a warrant to summon the Interior Minister Falah al-Naqib and intelligence chief Mohammed Al Shahwani held, and investigation would be opened.

   Hizb Allah Movement filed complaints against the two officials, claiming that its rights were violated by the government institutions after some of its members were briefly arrested.

   Iraqi intelligence forces raided the office of Hizb Allah Movement in Baghdad and arrested some members, including the movement's general-secretary Hassan Al Sari, without any arrest warrant.

   The judge said the court looked into the case according to Iraqi Administration Law and decided to summon the two officials and open investigation.  Enditem
