Immunity of Central Bank of Iraq funds abroad July 27, 2021 The legal authorities in the United States of America confirmed to the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq that all the reserves and funds of the Central Bank of Iraq are fortified and that no party can seize them. They also confirmed that they will defend its immunity with the rest of the countries, and these reserves cannot be compromised. As Iraq will complete during the coming period the full payment of the compensation and benefits accrued from it prior to 2003, this will lead to the lifting of the international immunity for Iraq's money abroad and it will be subject to implementation by some creditors from other parties and companies. In this context, those legal authorities confirmed that the funds and reserves of the Central Bank of Iraq are protected under the laws followed in the United States of America, and pledged to defend what is in the central banks and banks in other countries.
