Washington, DC – The Board of Directors and staff of IRI were shocked and saddened to learn of the murder of our former colleague Andrea Parhamovich in a terrorist attack in Baghdad on January 17, 2007.

“Andi worked with IRI in Baghdad helping to build democracy, the same work she undertook at the National Democratic Institute (NDI) just before the attack,” said IRI President Lorne Craner.  “An idealist dedicated to freedom, justice and peace, Andi will be missed by many colleagues, starting with those from IRI and NDI who worked with her in Iraq.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Andi’s family and friends, and with our colleagues at NDI.”

In Memory of Andi Parhamovich: Baghdad 2007 is a heartfelt tribute by California State GOP Vice Chairman Ron Nehring, who trained Iraqis in November 2006 with Andi.

At NDI’s request, all media inquiries regarding Andi’s work in Iraq are directed to NDI at 202-728-5500.
