I bet Maliki's big dumbo ears lit up bright as a Christmas bulb when he heard "$178 million". Doubtful he heard anything else. This guy is a cancer, as can clearly be seen by his continuous support of Iran. Why he's not in la-la land with 7 virgin goats by now is a travesty to the Iraq judicial system. Fools.

      2019/07/23 12:31 Number of readings 288 Section: Iraq     The US Treasury explains the reasons for the inclusion of four Iraqis on the sanctions list
      BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The US Treasury Department revealed on Tuesday (July 23, 2019) that four Iraqi Iraqis, Ahmed al-Jubouri, Nofal al-Aakoub, Qado and Rayyan Chaldeani, were included in the US sanctions against human rights violators accused of corruption.
      "The United States has taken action against four people in Iraq who are involved in serious human rights abuses or corruption," said Seagal Mandler, Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, in a statement to the US Department of State.
      "We will continue to hold accountable those associated with gross human rights violations, including the persecution of religious minorities and corrupt officials who take advantage of their public confidence to store their pockets and hold power at the expense of their citizens," he said.
      "There have been many actions related to the corruption and ill-treatment of these punishable individuals in areas where persecuted religious communities are struggling to recover from the atrocities committed by Da'ash, so today's sanctions demonstrate their solidarity with all Iraqis who oppose corruption and human rights abuses committed by employees And affirms the administration's commitment to support the restoration of oppressed religious communities in Iraq. "
      The Treasury Department revealed the reasons for listing the four as follows:
      Ryan Chaldean
      "Ryan Chaldean was sanctioned for being a foreign person responsible for, or accomplices to, or directly or indirectly involved in serious human rights violations," the ministry said.
      She noted that "Chaldean is the commander of the 50th Brigade. In May 2018, a video was distributed among Iraqi civil society organizations for human rights, in which Chaldean was cut off by a handcuffed detainee."
      "The 50th Brigade is the main obstacle to the return of internally displaced persons to the Nineveh Plain and has regularly looted homes in Batnaya, which is struggling to recover from brutal rule," she said.
      "The 50th Brigade reportedly seized and sold farmland illegally and accused the local population of intimidating, blackmailing and harassing women."
      Kado promised
      "Sanctions have been imposed on Qadu's promise that he is a foreigner, a leader or an entity official, including any government entity, who has been involved in / or committed serious human rights violations with respect to the leader or the official," the US Department said.
      She noted that "Qado is the commander of Brigade 30. The brigade has extracted funds from the population around the city of Bartala, in the Nineveh Plain, through extortion, illegal arrests and kidnapping."
      "Major General 30 has often detained people without warrants or fraudulent orders, and imposed arbitrary customs duties at checkpoints," she said.
      According to the ministry, "local people claim that the 30th Brigade is responsible for committing horrendous crimes, including physical intimidation, extortion, theft, kidnapping and rape."
      Nofal Hammadi Sultan
      On the former governor of Ninewa, the ministry said, "Nofal Hammadi has been sentenced to the Sultan as a foreigner / current or former government official, or person acting for or on behalf of that official, who is responsible for, or who is involved in, Directly or indirectly in corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets or the confiscation of private assets for personal gain or corruption related to government contracts, extraction of natural resources or bribery. "
      "The Sultan is the former governor of Nineveh After the ferry accident in Mosul, the center of Nineveh, which killed about 100 people, the Iraqi parliament removed the Sultan from office."
      "The ferry, loaded with five times more than its capacity, was transporting families to an island on the Tigris when it sank," he said, adding that the Iraqi authorities issued an arrest warrant for the former governor, who fled shortly after the incident.
      "In a letter addressed to members of parliament after the ferry incident, Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi accused the Sultan of negligence and dereliction of duty and said there was evidence that the former governor was misusing the funds and misusing his authority."
      "On March 27, 2019, the Ninewa investigation court said al-Akeb and several other officials were suspected of misuse of their powers and waste of public money." The Sultan has faced widespread corruption allegations since 1994. "

      Ahmed al-Jubouri "Abu Mazen"
      "Ahmed al-Jubouri was penalized as a foreigner who is a current or former government employee, a person acting on behalf of or in charge of or in charge of / or an accomplice in / who has direct or indirect participation Directly involved in corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets or the confiscation of private assets for personal gain or corruption related to government contracts, extraction of natural resources or bribery. "
      She said that "Jubouri, also known as Abu Mazen, is the former ruler of Salahuddin in Iraq, and the current member of parliament, who participated in corruption."
      Al-Jubouri was dismissed as a governor and sentenced to prison in June 2017 after being convicted of misuse of power and federal funds and taking over land for personal use.
      "Jabouri is known to protect his personal interests by absorbing Iranian-backed agents operating outside the control of the state," she said.
