Economy News - Baghdad

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 ranks last 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 bodies, 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 experiencing economic deterioration 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 the head of the Baghdad Investment Commission, Shaker Al-Zamili, is due to corruption files, indicating that there are 4 former ministers who will be arrested in 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 eliminate corruption, noting that the black box for corrupt files resides in the Ministry of Oil.

She stressed that the contracts of the ministries of oil, electricity, trade and defense are marred by a lot of corruption, explaining that tax evasion has damaged 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 per month from the retirees.

Report: The Al-Kazemi Committee overthrew a figure linked to Al-Maliki ... and another linked to Hezbollah!
 

Baghdad - People   

On Saturday, a press report addressed a number of questions after the arrest campaign affected high-ranking figures close to influential political blocs and leaders, and focused on other parties' fear of the next steps.  

The report of the London-based Arab newspaper, followed by "People," (September 19, 2020), said that the former president of the General Retirement Authority made confessions that led to the discovery of a wide network of money laundering that serves officials, politicians and parties, and depends on collaborators in Beirut.  

  

The text of the report follows:  

The arrests carried out by the Iraqi authorities against officials accused of corruption cases revealed the amount of fear that the political class in the country is experiencing from any measures related to integrity, in exchange for the street's eagerness to hit the top corrupt, at a time when the arrests seemed to accelerate, reaching mediators and agents of major personalities, A message about Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi's approach to confronting corruption by big whales.  

And since 2003, corrupt officials and politicians in Iraq have squandered about a thousand billion dollars of public money, without developing any service sector in the country.  

Iraq suffers every year in the summer season because of the theft of funds allocated for electricity, while it is still dependent on hospitals and health facilities built during the era of the late President Saddam Hussein, as billions of dollars directed to this sector were wasted after 2003, while the education sector suffers under pressure from the age of facilities and the entry of parties On the line of investment in it through private schools and universities, while Baghdad suffocates on a daily basis due to the traffic momentum, because it still relies on roads and bridges that were built during the era of the Baath Party, which is banned from working according to the permanent constitution of Iraq.  

During the first years following the fall of the former regime, mercy for the "days of Saddam" represented a crime that brought shame and accusations to its owner in Shiite circles, but it has become a common occurrence now, and appears even on the screens of satellite stations.  

In recent years, the Iraqis have reached the conviction that eliminating political, financial and administrative corruption in Iraq is impossible, after they became certain that the continued existence of political parties depends completely on what their representatives steal from the state. Some activists even suggested legalizing corruption, such as the annual budget specifying a share. Each party has public money, so that the state can get what it can use to serve the population.  

The fight against corruption topped the demands of the largest mass movement that Iraq witnessed in October of 2019, when the government of former Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi, in partnership with Iraqi militias affiliated with Iran, was involved in killing about 700 protesters and wounding about 20,000 others, in order to protect the corrupt religious party system. in the country.  

The extent of the opposition expressed by the Abdul Mahdi government and the militias affiliated with Iran against the idea of overthrowing the existing regime, replacing it, or even correcting its course, highlighted the amount of financial gains that political Islam parties have that receive orders and directives from Tehran.  

When Mustafa Al-Kazemi formed his government, after the protesters forced his predecessor, Abdul Mahdi, to resign, the street placed high hopes on the former intelligence chief in eradicating the corrupt, due to his good reputation in popular circles.  

But Al-Kazemi's awaited campaign against corruption whales was long overdue, yet when its first signs appeared during the past three days, it garnered widespread popular sympathy.  

Al-Kazemi had formed a special committee to follow up major corruption cases, which was surrounded by much controversy, headed by the prominent General Ahmed Aburjief, and it was said that he had unlimited powers.  

The campaign began with the arrest of a middle-level official, Ahmed Al-Saadi, the director of the retirement department, which raised questions about the goals that Al-Kazemi could reach and his seriousness about pursuing adults.  

But the excitement was doubled when Bahaa Abdul Hussain, director of the "Key Card" company concerned with facilitating the payment of salaries of retirees, was arrested while he was about to flee from Baghdad airport two days after Al-Saadi was arrested.  

Informed sources said that Al-Saadi made confessions that led to the discovery of a wide network of money laundering, serving officials, politicians and parties, and relying on collaborators in Beirut.  

The arrest of Abdul Hussein caused a sensation, due to his strong ties to former officials and current leaders.  

The sources indicate that the arrest of Abdel-Hussein may lead to the arrest of other personalities and the recovery of funds from home and abroad.  

The new campaign of arrests also included the director of the Agricultural Bank, Adel Khudair, and 12 employees under his command.  

The official authorities did not reveal the reason for Khudair's arrest, but informed sources said that investigations linked it to the disappearance of huge sums of money in what is known as the "agricultural initiative", which dates back to the era of former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki.  

Al-Maliki took advantage of the coincidence of the rise in oil prices and the increase in Iraq's production of oil during his reign to obtain explosive budgets, but his government was not associated with any achievements despite this, leaving behind the largest files of corruption and waste of public money.  

Al-Maliki's name appeared in another case that Al-Kazemi is following, related to a giant water project in Baghdad, on which millions of dollars have been spent, without being completed.  

Judicial sources said that travel bans were issued against Dhikra Alloush, the former Secretary of Baghdad, and Director of Contracts at the Ministry of Planning Azhar al-Rubaie, due to their suspicion of collusion in dropping a fine of about $ 100 million on the company implementing the water project, as well as the arrest of the director of the Capital Water Department.  

The executing company’s manager, a contractor named Essam al-Asadi, has a close relationship with al-Maliki, and information indicates that he is still managing his broad commercial interests, under various interfaces.  

But the biggest blow in this campaign was that of Shaker al-Zamili, who is head of the Baghdad Investment Commission, whose information indicates that he is closely related to the broad commercial interests that concern the Lebanese Hezbollah in Iraq.  

Sources say that Al-Zamili took advantage of his position to grant companies affiliated with Hezbollah millions of dollars of contracts, without executing any of them, noting that the relationship of the head of the Baghdad Investment Commission with the Lebanese party led by Hassan Nasrallah protected him from legal prosecutions over the past years.  

And because it strikes in part the network of interests serving Iran's allies, Al-Kazemi's campaign against the corrupt angered the Shiite militias, and led them to brandish the threat.  

Naim al-Aboudi, a member of parliament for the Asaib Ahl al-Haq movement led by Qais Khazali, fears “there are revenge motives behind this campaign,” wondering why “a new committee was formed to combat corruption, despite the existence of an integrity commission.”  

Al-Aboudi says that "there are concerns about the possibility of political motives behind this campaign," noting that "Al-Kazemi overlooked the constitutional contexts by forming this special committee to combat corruption."  

"The committee may be involved in corruption of some kind," he said, noting that the Fatah bloc to which he belongs, and is the only political representative of the Iraqi militias affiliated with Iran in Parliament, "will face any selective and retaliatory measures that explode the situation in the country."  

He went on to say that "fighting corruption needs political agreements," meaning that Al-Kazemi must seek permission from the parties before arresting their corrupt, because "Al-Kazemi's current steps are not legal, and there may be reactions against them."

Corruption heads

Corruption heads

 
Alaa Hadi Al-Hattab
 


Fighting corruption has become a science with studies, strategies, arts, mechanisms and rules through which public money can be preserved and deal with administrative abuses, favoritism, and attribution in public administrative performance. Integrated parties, but this does not prevent the existence of important global experiences in dealing with corruption and its effects, including anti-corruption operations in South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Georgia and others, and each experience has its own strategies and tools, so it is not possible to put a fixed and one magic formula in anti-corruption operations for all countries that suffer from outbreaks. The phenomenon of corruption, for each experiment has its own objective conditions related to the nature of laws, customs, traditions, and their own social upbringing. Mechanisms and treatments that succeed in one country can fail in another due to the difference in the objective conditions of each country, so the process of combating corruption has become a science that is studied in advanced stages of studies.Supreme.

Perhaps Georgia’s experience in combating corruption is one of the important experiences, as it relied on ten principles in different sectors through which it was able to transfer Georgia from a country where corruption strikes all its joints in 2003 to a country that advanced in international transparency and anti-corruption standards in 2011, and eight years were sufficient and sufficient to reduce From corruption processes and a big jump in development indicators in Georgia. 
This experience relied in one of its principles on arresting what it called (bloodsuckers), meaning the big heads of corruption, from great merchants, politicians, deputies, ministers, and influential figures in Georgia. Arrests began after the judiciary issued arrest warrants against those involved in corruption. The arrests were accompanied by the media that were It documents what is happening and publishes the names and pictures of detainees accused of corruption in the media to block the way to internal and external pressures and political interference to prevent the trial of an accused of corruption here and there - yes, the process involves human rights abuse - considering that the accused is innocent until proven guilty - but experience explained that it will restore consideration to whom Prove his innocence in the media. 
The result was a fair and strict judiciary that does not compliment politically, merchant, notable or influential people, and even a "government" that may try to liquidate its opponents under the pretext of fighting corruption, as well as a strong government with a real will that does not fear any corrupt, big or small, and dealt in accordance with the law and the public interest to a large extent. 
This was accompanied by a societal welcome, satisfaction and acceptance of this performance and the role in combating corruption, which included, in parallel and horizontally, a group of sectors and files that were tampered with by corruption.
What we need today is to develop strategies for a complete and integrated Iraqi experience in combating corruption and not linking the success of its implementation to individuals, but rather related to the institutional strategy for which it was established as an institution and a crisis treatment system far away from those who implement it, and even the institutional system governs the experience even the individuals who manage it, accompanied by systematic media marketing Accurate and thoughtful, because the marketing error here is negatively attributable to the success of the implementation, which reduces the community’s confidence in the good performance of the experiment and then loses its acceptance, sympathy and social support for it, especially with the presence of pioneering studies in this field and academic figures who can look and formulate that experience and the tools for its implementation.

Iraqi government steps up fight against corruption

The arrest of six senior officials on corruption charges shows that serious steps are taken in the fight against corruption, amid calls that the government speeds up its reform program.

Sep 18, 2020

Soon after Iraq's top Shiite cleric denounced the corruption rampant in the country, Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi moved forward in replacing several top officials and ordering an arrest warrant against a number of high-ranking officials.

Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, special representative of the UN secretary-general for Iraq, said Sept. 13 following a meeting with top Shiite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani in Najaf that Sistani wants major corruption files to be opened and those involved held accountable.

Some political forces were quick to welcome her announcement, although there are figures accused of corruption among their ranks. What's more, the protesters who took to the streets in October 2019 have accused these forces of pocketing public money.

Speaking to Al-Monitor, a close associate of Kadhimi confirmed that serious steps are taken to hold accountable those involved in corruption cases. The source said, “The investigation committee that Kadhimi set up Aug. 27 led to security forces arresting Sept. 15 seven senior corrupt persons — who will be named later — including the former director of the pension authority.”

A day after the special representative’s remarks, Kadhimi imposed changes to a number of government positions. The changes include appointing former Defense Minister Khalid al-Obeidi as head of the operations section in the Iraqi Intelligence Service that Kadhimi himself is still heading.

 

Yet political forces, including the Sairoon-Fatah alliance, lashed out at this measure, viewing that such a measure “could reach the point of overthrowing the Kadhimi government.”

The Sunni forces have also lashed out at the new appointments, while the State of Law Coalition perceived that “the administrative appointments have expanded the quotas.”

Commenting on such reactions, the source noted, “The political parties are mired in the sharing of quotas that they openly do and refuse that their privileges be touched. They cannot deceive the Iraqi people by saying that they refuse [such practices]. The appointments involve professional figures and do not consist of radical changes. The names were selected from within the institutions themselves, given that the legal work deadlines have passed, while taking into account their integrity, experience and the national balance.”

The political forces are obviously wary and fear the street and are trying to enhance their image in any way possible. That has prompted Fatah Alliance leader Hadi al-Amiri to release a statement Sept. 14 indicating that he did not know about the appointment of Sami al-Masoudi as head of the Hajj and Umrah Authority. That would mean that Kadhimi did not consult with the political parties about the appointments and did not opt for quota-sharing.

Alia Nassif, a member of parliament for the State of Law Coalition, told Al-Monitor, “Combating corruption is among the most significant challenges facing the Kadhimi government. The government is yet to get to the level of the serious challenge that the state faces in fighting corruption and illicit arms.”

She said that she believes that “so far, the changes in the positions that Kadhimi made continue to be part of the blocs’ desires for quotas, which is worrisome for the Iraqis who pin great hopes on Kadhimi as a person in founding a new path in the state administration away from quota-sharing of positions.”

Nassif added, “The citizens’ despair stems from the fact that they did not see any corrupt individuals appear before the judiciary under the previous governments, and they are hopeful that this will happen under the Kadhimi government.”

On June 20, Kadhimi pledged to move forward with financial and economic reforms, while some political forces fear that combating corruption affects them. The first steps were made June 29, by tasking the Counter-Terrorism Service with managing the border crossings and appointing new heads for the civil aviation authority and Shiite endowments.

Iraq's former Communications Minister Mohammed Tawfiq Allawi — who was nominated to form a government before Kadhimi, but failed to win the parliament’s vote of confidence — told Al-Monitor, “An important factor in combating corruption is to hold early and fair elections, which Sistani reiterated three times in his meeting with Hennis-Plasschaert. Thus, Kadhimi is at a crossroad — either fair elections or failure. This is because fair elections would end the ongoing corruption.” 

Allawi warned against “seeing the public unconvinced with the elections’ results, because this would deepen the country's problems and pose a threat to the unity and the future of the people.” 

Yet member of parliament Falah al-Khafaji told Al-Monitor, “Ending corruption and enforcing the law ought to take place before early elections are held … otherwise there are no fair elections.”

Shorooq al-Obeiji, secretary-general of the National Civil Movement, told Al-Monitor, “Outlawed forces outside of the state are in control of the state’s key positions. Iraqis do not feel that they are citizens of a state serving them through its institutions.” She denounced that “the political class-linked forces have exploited the country’s wealth to their advantage.”

Obeiji added, “All of this defect did not speed up steps to achieve reforms, which should have been very clear by now. Also, a clear methodology to achieve reforms is still absent even though corruption prevails.” She called for “a strategy based on legal mechanisms and a mass mobilization so as to implement such a strategy, before [the people] start to feel that the government is weak in the face of the corrupt forces. The prime minister needs to be aware of that and refrain from holding the stick in the middle.”

The editor-in-chief of Al-Sabah newspaper, Abbas Abboud, told Al-Monitor, “Kadhimi has more than one quality required for success, given that he is an honest person whom the majority of parties at home and abroad accept. Yet he needs to back up words with actions and to be open to the people. The reforms will not roll out before the elections, because it is neither the right time nor the right circumstances.”

In a speech to the UN General Assembly in September 2019, President Barham Salih stressed the challenge of corruption, which he labeled the “political economy of conflict."

The dominant forces are expected to desperately prevent any measures from being taken against corruption symbols within their ranks. Yet that will necessarily reactivate the protest movement, particularly since Sistani announced a supportive position.

Baghdad / Al-Akhbariya:
The legal expert, Ali Al-Tamimi, considered, on Monday, that former Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi and Lieutenant General Jamil Al-Shammari are responsible for the murder of the protesters in Nasiriyah, indicating that the crimes are not subject to the statute of limitations, even after the passage of years.
Al-Shammari said in a statement to Al-
Akhbariya that "there are 11 legal points against former Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi and Jamil Al-Shammari, which are as follows: 1. According to Iraqi law, Article 24 of the Military Penal Code, the matter is responsible for the crime and is considered an accomplice, even if he does not give the orders to kill, and the same is the case." In Article 52 of the Internal Security Forces Law, and even in the Iraqi Penal Code, articles 48 and 49 are held accountable for incitement, instruction and assistance, and commanders are held accountable for premeditated murder, disability, and bodily harm.
2- Articles 6, 7 and 28 of the International Criminal Court Law punish leaders for genocide and crimes against humanity even if they do not give orders because their duty requires them to know, as happened in the case of the Yugoslav President Milasevsch, who was ruled by this court for 60 years, as well as what the criminal court ruled in Cairo against Hosni Mubarak for the same thing and killing demonstrators ... 3 - These
crimes do not lapse by prescription or the lapse of time, as happened in the trial of the Chilean president after he retired in a wheelchair. 4 - The
presence of weapons for hunting. Have they been distributed with the knowledge of the officers and are they present in all governorates, and the existence of these weapons is not new. They were only used in the demonstrations a year ago, so the investigation needs to be retroactive ... to know their source ... in particular. These crimes are not subject to the statute of limitations or the lapse of time, and they can be moved at any time. Time is coming ....

5- The legal description of these crimes according to Articles 406, premeditated murder and 410 beatings that lead to the death of 412 minors with impairments and 413

injuries and harm, all of which are felonies punishable by imprisonment or the death penalty ... And the Iraqi constitution is in Article 38 of it..and therefore the Iraqi government is obligated according to international law to uncover the perpetrators ...

who are ... murderers ... instigators ... and accomplices ... and even the third party ... 7. Clues to uncover the crime, in my opinion, they are the witnesses of the accident. From the rest of the demonstrators ... to uncover the facts of the crime ... as well as personal claimants and surveillance cameras ... and their statements can be submitted to the investigation court ...

... the responsibility of the security leaders is in accordance with Article 24 of the Military Penal Code 19 of 2007 of Where knowledge of the crime or weapons or giving orders or not ... all of them are revealed by the investigation in the investigation court

9- Although Iraq is not regulated by the 1998 Rome Convention of the International Criminal Court, but ... a group of Iraqi lawyers submitted a complaint to this court, which accepted the complaint because the complaint was filed against Abdul Mahdi and those with him because they are citizens of foreign nationalities, so the countries of their nationalities were organized for this convention ..
10.hzh crimes no statute of limitations or time lapse in accordance with Article 28 of the Convention relating to the Court and is considering the crimes of murder, genocide and crimes against humanity and racial discrimination ...
11.omsaolah presidents based on the killing of demonstrators , even if did not give orders , as happened to the President Yugoslavia, President and Egypt of Hosni Mubarak.

Parliamentary parties are ruling out for Al-Kazemi to open corruption files related to Kurdistan
Ultra Iraq - Editorial Team

With the issuance of the first package of measures by the Supreme Committee set up by the Prime Minister to open the files of corruption, and despite its being limited to figures who held middle positions and did not live up to those whom Iraqis define as "corruption whales", calls are mounting to expand its duties to include major issues.

The past weeks have witnessed the arrest of a number of former and current officials on charges of financial and administrative corruption, as well as the issuance of travel bans against a number of officials, and with expectations that other arrest warrants will be issued in the coming days.

The great financial distress that the Kurdistan region suffers from and the rampant corruption in the joints of some institutions, in response to the demand of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, to include the region in the anti-corruption measures in the country, including MP Sarkut Shamsuddin.

Shams al-Din said, on September 16, that “the border crossings, the file of oil smuggling, the transfer of land and other matters are dangerous, and the Integrity Commission in the region is affiliated with the ruling authority parties, and it cannot open corruption files, and the Federal Integrity Commission and the Prime Minister if it has seriousness Opening the file of corruption and following up the balances of a number of officials in foreign banks, headed by Prime Minister Masrour Barzani and other personalities.

While the deputy of the Al-Fateh Alliance, Hanin Qaddo, confirms the difficulty of opening "files of corruption and arresting the corrupt in the Kurdistan region," noting that "Kurdish leaders refuse to enter federal committees into Kurdistan."

"The Kurds refuse to enter the Anti-Corruption Committee, the Integrity Commission, or the Board of Financial Supervision, to the region for fear of exposing the large corruption files," Qadu told Ultra Iraq, stressing that "Kurdish officials told Al-Kazimi that the oversight committees in Kurdistan are the ones that handle the matter." Checking the files and if there are suspicions of corruption, we will inform Baghdad. "

For his part, independent MP Basim Khashan confirms in an interview with Ultra Iraq, that “Al-Kazemi seeks to stay away from confronting corruption files in the Kurdistan region,” pointing out that “Kurdish parties are trying to preserve their interests and not prejudice them, and the government is also trying not to prejudice these. Interests in order not to lose Kurdish support. "

Khashan describes the prime minister as "weak" in front of the Kurds and "unable" to impose his authority on the border crossings, saying that this usually means "the lack of equality after imposing control over the outlets of provinces only."

Since when was Kurdistan not part of Iraq? Al-Kazemi should make a point to these thieves that if you want money from Iraq you fall under the same guidelines as everyone else. The corruption in Kurdistan is probably 10 times worse than the rest of Iraq. He would probably have to open files on all the Barzani family is the reason their telling Al-Kazemi to chill out you can't open any files up here an we will take care of this ourselves....yeah right

      I honestly don't know who the Chinese guy in this video  is.  I don't know the youtuber either, but apparently he/she is a Chinese tanslator.  I do know the video has almost 300,000 views since it was posted Sept 24, which tells me a lot of people are interested in it.  It is in Chinese with English subtitles.  Sometimes the titles go by fast, so you may want to slow down the playback speed down to .75. He talks about 3 hard drives that some people in the Chinese government who apparently would like to take down the CCP (Chinese Communist Party), gave to the Trump administration last month.  Interestingly, the first hard drive seems to corroborate the sex and pedo stuff, along with Biden-China deal information, that was found on Hunter's laptop that was only just reported about this past week.  Also interesting is that the second hard drive is about Xi Jinping's assets and the third is about a bioweapon which I assume is Covid.  According to this guy, he  thinks this may actually take down the CCP.  On a side note, he says copies of the 3 drives were also given to Nancy Pelosi by the CCP to remind her and the other corrupt politicians that China owns them and that they better make sure Biden wins the election.  This could explain why Nancy is particularly crazy lately.  But if Trump wins in a big landslide which I think he will, it will be hard for the Dems to try and forge enough ballots in time to overturn his victory and that could cause a world of hurt for the crooked politicians (probably mostly Dems, but no doubt also some republicans) and hopefully topple Xi Jinping and the CCP, too. 
       
      However, as I said, I know nothing about who this guy, so I almost hesitate to post it.  Still, some of what he says does match other things that I know to be true, and that makes me think the other things he's talking about might be true as well.  In any event, I like to hope it's true because I pray every day for Trump to drain the swamp and get rid of the corrupt and unjust people in government and also for Xi Jinping to lose power and for the CCP to collapse so I'm happy to learn of a potential plan that might actually make that happen soon.

      Hunter Biden email story: Computer repair store owner describes handing over laptop to FBI
      The man, John Paul Mac Isaac, said he “can’t be 100 percent sure” it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the computer for repair.
      By Thomas Barrabi, Jacqui Heinrich, Tara Prindiville | Fox News NY Post: Emails indicate Hunter Biden introduced dad to Burisma exec
      Fox News talks to computer shop owner who found hard drive with emails; Jacqui Heinrich reports
       
      The owner of a Delaware computer repair store where a man he believes was Hunter Biden dropped off a laptop that allegedly contained emails detailing an opportunity for a meeting between former Vice President Joe Biden and a top Burisma executive and other "disturbing" items, told Fox News on Wednesday that he was frightened by what he saw.
       
      The man, John Paul Mac Isaac, said he has a condition that affects his vision and “can’t be 100 percent sure” it was Hunter Biden who dropped off the computer for repair. The Wilmington shop owner said he contacted the FBI out of concern, but declined to specify what he meant.

      HUNTER BIDEN EMAILS UNDER INVESTIGATION BY SENATE HOMELAND SECURITY AFTER HARD-DRIVE REPORT EMERGES 
       
      Isaac’s claim that the laptop in question belonged to Hunter Biden has yet to be substantiated. Isaac told the New York Post, which first published the emails earlier Wednesday, that he determined it was Hunter Biden because the laptop had a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, which is named after his late older brother.
       
      “I just don't know what to say, or what I'm allowed to say,” Isaac said. “I know that I saw, I saw stuff. And I was concerned. I was concerned that somebody might want to come looking for this stuff eventually and I wanted it out of my shop.”
       
      When asked, Isaac, whose social media posts indicate is a supporter of President Trump, rejected the possibility that the laptop did not belong to Hunter Biden and was an attempt to set him up.
       
      FACEBOOK REDUCING DISTRIBUTION OF HUNTER BIDEN STORY IN NY POST

      Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings drew renewed scrutiny following the New York Post’s publication of a 2015 email purportedly exchanged between him and an executive at Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings. At the time, Hunter Biden served on the company’s board of directors.
       
      Isaac said the man who he believes to be Hunter Biden dropped off three laptops at his store in April 2019, only one of which was salvageable. While repairing the laptop, Isaac said he discovered disturbing material.
       
      The customer did not return for the laptop within 90 days and Isaac could not get in touch with him. Isaac said he first searched the emails by keyword in June or July of 2019.
       
      TRUMP CAMPAIGN BLASTS BIDEN OVER NEW HUNTER BIDEN-UKRAINE STORY, CLAIMS IT SHOWS HE ‘LIED’
       
      “If I'm somebody that has no journalistic ability, no detective ability or investigative ability and I was able to find stuff in a short period of time, somebody else should have been able to find something to show,” Isaac said.
       
      In September, he contacted an intermediary about the emails. The intermediary then contacted the FBI.
       
      Isaac said the intermediary is an American citizen who he has known for decades, but declined to provide further details about their identity.
        According to Isaac’s account, the FBI first made a forensic copy of the laptop, then returned weeks later with a subpoena and confiscated it. When he stopped hearing from the FBI, Isaac said he contacted several members of Congress, who did not respond. At that point, his intermediary reached out to Rudy Giuliani’s attorney, Robert Costello.
       
      An attorney for Hunter Biden told the New York Post that Giuliani “has been pushing widely discredited conspiracy theories about the Biden family, openly relying on actors tied to Russian intelligence.”
       
      An FBI spokesperson declined Fox News' request for comment, citing the bureau's practice of neither confirming nor denying the existence of an investigation.
       
      Representatives for Delaware's U.S. Attorney's office did not immediately respond to multiple requests for comment. When contacted by the New York Post, a spokesperson for the Delaware U.S. Attorney's office said, “My office can neither confirm nor deny the existence of an investigation."
       
      The New York Post published photos of a Delaware federal subpoena that detailed the FBI's seizure of a laptop and hard drive.
       
      When asked what he hoped would come of the information once it went public, Isaac was ambivalent about his motives. He acknowledged the current political landscape had played a role in his actions and specifically referenced Trump’s impeachment as a motivating factor.
       
      “I wanted -- above all, I wanted safety and security,” Isaac said. “I wanted anonymity. I wanted just to be [able] to wash my hands of it, and like it never happened. And that did not happen.”
        In the email published by the New York Post, Vadym Pozharskyi, an adviser to the board of Burisma, thanked Hunter Biden for introducing him to then-Vice President Joe Biden. Less than a year after the meeting took place, Biden is accused of pressuring the Ukrainian government to fire a prosecutor who had launched an investigation into Burisma.
       
      “Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together. It’s realty [sic] an honor and pleasure,” the email reads.
       
      In an earlier email from May 2014 which was obtained by Fox News, Pozharskyi, who was said to be Burisma’s No. 3 executive, asked Biden for “advice on how you could use your influence” to help the company.
       
      The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is investigating the newly released emails, Fox News confirmed.
      The Biden campaign pushed back on the allegations in the report, asserting that a review of the former vice president’s “official schedules from the time” showed that “no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”
       
      "Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as 'not legitimate' and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement. “Trump administration officials have attested to these facts under oath.”
       
      Critics have long alleged that Hunter Biden leveraged his father’s position in the Obama administration to enrich himself in his personal business dealings. The Trump campaign has repeatedly attacked Biden on the campaign trail regarding his son’s conduct.
       
      When pressed on the matter by Trump during the first presidential debate last month, Joe Biden again denied Hunter had engaged in any wrongdoing.
       
      “My son did nothing wrong at Burisma. He doesn’t want to let me answer because he knows I have the truth,” Joe Biden said. “His position has been totally, thoroughly discredited -- by the media, by our allies, by the World Bank, by everyone.”

      Baghdad / Obelisk: Legal expert Ali al-Tamimi confirmed, on Wednesday, January 29, 2020, that the Administrative and Financial Anti-Corruption Agreement of 2005, which Iraq joined in 2007, allows the country to request assistance in recovering the smuggled money estimated at $ 500 billion.
      Al-Tamimi told Al-Masalla, the possibility of fighting administrative and financial corruption in Iraq with the help of international law:
      1- There is the Administrative and Financial Anti-Corruption Agreement of 2005, which Iraq joined in 2007, and it allows Iraq to request assistance in recovering the smuggled money, which was estimated at 500 billion dollars.
      2- Article 50 of the Charter of the United Nations allows Iraq to request international assistance, as Security Council Resolution 2170 of 2014, which placed ISIS under Chapter VII, allows that.
      3- Iraq can also ask the Security Council to refer the file to the International Criminal Court, where corruption crimes are considered genocide and crimes against humanity.
