The government launches an anti-corruption campaign to hold 1,000 people accused of corruption accountable


17th September, 2020


The Iraqi government campaign began with the arrest of figures accused of corruption in state institutions, including ministers, deputy ministers, heads of investment agencies and businessmen, whose number is determined to be 1000

Iraq has a number of institutions that follow the file of corruption, such as the Integrity Commission, the Supreme Council for Combating Corruption, the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, and others, and the country occupies the last ranks in the classification of Transparency International

A member of the Parliamentary Economic Committee, Ali Al-Lami, said that the despicable quota system produced corruption by distributing positions to parties, indicating that there are 27 people accused of corruption who will be arrested in the coming days, including 2 ministers, heads of investment agencies, deputy ministers and general directors. He pointed out that more than 5,000 corruption files exist with the Integrity Commission, and all of them contain evidence, but the lack of will disrupted the issue of combating corruption

And Iraq entered more than a trillion dollars since 2003 until now, but the country is still living in economic decline as a result of rampant corruption, and a large number of Iraqis welcomed any measures that limit corruption. The Anti-Corruption Council has identified 1,000 individuals accused of corruption since it began operating during the previous government

Informed sources indicated that the arrest of the former head of the retirement authority, Ahmed Abdul Jalil and head of the Baghdad Investment Commission, Shaker Al-Zamili, is due to corruption files, noting that there are 4 former ministers who will be arrested during the coming days, especially since there is international coordination to recover the corrupt figures

Meanwhile, a member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Alia Nassif, said that corruption in Iraq exists in the country's leaders, and they own economic bodies, and thus requires political will to eradicate corruption, noting that the black box for corrupt files is located in the Ministry of Oil. She emphasized that the contracts of the ministries of oil, electricity, trade and defense are marred by a lot of corruption, explaining that tax evasion has harmed the Iraqi economy, which is an important file of corruption

In the meantime, the head of the Reform and Change Foundation, Sabah Al-Kinani, said that corruption has become a reality in Iraq, and if there is an employee who is not corrupt, he fights and may be referred to retirement, explaining that there are contracts signed by state institutions, with fake companies under the pretext of social security for employees and retirees. Pointing out that one institution gives these companies amounts between 7-9 billion dinars per month. He noted that the arrest of the former head of the retirement authority, Ahmed Al-Saadi, was due to the signing of a contract with a fake company regarding social security, as 7 billion dinars were deducted a month from the retirees


Parliamentary Security: The coming days will witness the arrest of big names with suspicions of corruption



8th September, 2020

A member of the Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee of the Saeron Alliance, Badr Al-Ziyadi, confirmed, on Friday, that the coming days will witness the arrest of new and large names with suspicions of corruption, stressing that there are no red lines on anyone and everyone is subject to the law.

Al-Ziyadi said in a statement that Mawazine News received, a copy of it, that "the measures that the Prime Minister initiated in following up and arresting those with suspicions of corruption and files with the supervisory authorities are real measures that are supported by all political forces and parliamentary committees, especially the Parliamentary Security and Defense Committee." Noting that "the coming days will appear new and large names of different levels will be arrested as well, there are no red lines on anyone who appears on files of corruption and everyone is subject to the law."

He added, "The arrest of some of the suspects does not mean that they are categorically corrupt, and the final decision will be for the fair judiciary, because all those arrested will have payments to present to the court and the final word remains for the judiciary to decide the matter," pointing out that "there are many files being made." He referred it to the judiciary and supervisory authorities for follow-up. There are big names and everyone who has suspicions of corruption will be imposing the authority of law on them.

He stressed, "The judiciary understands what is happening and everyone knows that since 2003 until today, notable and influential figures have been arrested due to partisan and political pressures, but today it is up to the Prime Minister and the Anti-Corruption Committee to arrest everyone who has corruption files or suspicions and from all sides without There is a distinction between a specific bloc or entity and that everyone who caused the waste of the country's wealth throughout the previous years is held accountable in order to achieve a real breakthrough in the accountability of the corrupt and the heads of corruption."
