And she said in a statement today: “The statements of Mr. Al-Zubaidi, via Al-Ghadeer channel, in which he claimed that the Economic Committee was canceled by order of Mr. Al-Maliki, are unfounded. The Committee still exists and its members are present, and the Iraqi street is not naive to believe these allegations.”
Nassif indicated that: “When a certain person takes over several ministries in several successive governments until he is called (Sit al-Bayt), he becomes an undesirable figure by the public and bears the bulk of any government failure because he is a repeated face in all ministerial formations, so that people forget what Is it his specialty? Is he a security commander to become the Minister of the Interior? Or is he an economist to become Minister of Finance? Or is he an architect to become a housing minister? .
And she continued: “But if we come to reality, the committees that he talks about were the source of contracts, and the ministers take the immunity of their ministries’ contracts by an exceptional decision from the Ministerial Contracts Committee, and the role of the committee was to pass contracts that exceed the minister’s authority, and everyone knows that Iraq’s money was and continues to be looted through the economic committees.
Which still remains to this day, and we talk to history and we record it that you did not allow Mr. Al-Maliki to cancel the gateway to the economics of looting and theft, and therefore it was better for the owner of the three ministries to stay away from the method of escaping forward.” LINK
