A member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Thamer Theban, confirmed, Thursday, that there is difficulty in questioning the governor of the Central Bank, Mustafa Ghaleb, because of a "political will" that prevents this, indicating that the governor has placed the country in additional financial burdens on the border poor and low-income people.

Theban said in a statement to "the information", that "there is difficulty in questioning the governor of the Central Bank," indicating that "there are understandings and defense from some, forgetting the worries and pain of the Iraqi people."

He added that "the poor citizen bore additional financial burdens as a result of raising the dollar exchange rate," noting that "the questioning file of the central bank governor is a thorny and complex file."

The spokesman for the political bureau of Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq, Mahmoud al-Rubaie, had revealed in a previous statement to Al-Maalouma that the House of Representatives intended to host Finance Minister Ali Allawi and Central Bank Governor Mustafa Ghaleb in preparation for their interrogation inside the parliament, considering that their interrogation has become a popular demand.

Gulf War Compensation.... a UN committeer pays $380 million to Kuwait
 

image.jpeg.7524b4b46a2dc68b6ebbdcef4448dd37.jpeg
 

28th April, 2021

 

The United Nations Compensation Commission said on Tuesday that it had paid 380 million dollars to the government of Kuwait, an Iraqi payment of the total amount owed by Baghdad due to its 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

The committee stated in a statement, "By paying the amount deducted from the revenues from the sale of Iraqi oil, Baghdad will have paid 50.7 billion dollars."

She pointed out that the amount of $ 1.7 billion remains on Iraq, and represents demands made by the Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, for "the losses resulting from the invasion and the loss of oil production due to the damage that some fields faced during the invasion."

The Security Council Committee and the Foundation decided in 1991 that Iraq must pay $ 52.4 billion to Kuwaiti individuals, companies and government agencies, who suffered losses due to the Saddam Hussein regime's invasion of Kuwait. 
 
The committee was established to handle claims and pay compensation for losses and damages incurred by individuals, companies, governments and international organizations, as a direct result of the invasion of Iraq and its occupation of Kuwait.

Claims are paid from the United Nations Compensation Fund, which receives a percentage of the proceeds from export sales of Iraqi oil and its products, and this rate has been set at 5%, and the percentage has been reduced on more than one occasion, while compensation values are paid every 3 months.
