Tishwash: Al-Amiri: The dollar’s rise is part of a scheme to control the Iraqi economy
The head of Al-Fateh Alliance, Hadi Al-Amiri described, on Friday, the rise in the exchange rate of the dollar against the dinar as a plan to control the economy in Iraq
This came during a speech by Al-Amiri during the “Perfume Al-Sawater” festival, which coincides with the third anniversary of the assassination of the deputy head of the Popular Mobilization Forces, “Abu Mahdi Al-Muhandis,” and the prominent Iranian general, Qassem Soleimani, with an American air strike in early 2020.
Al-Amiri said during the speech, “The Jihad Fatwa was able to unite all energies to fight ISIS.”
The head of the Al-Fateh Alliance indicated that “we have another battle that is no less important than the previous stage, which is the soft war, and we must contribute to this battle,” noting that “fighting the scourge of drugs is no less important than fighting ISIS, if not as dangerous.”
Al-Amiri warned that “the battle today must be a battle for economic independence and the rise of the dollar is part of a scheme to control the economy.” link
CandyKisses: Al-Sudani’s private lawyer reveals the details of the lawsuit against the governor of the Central Bank and the position of the Sadrist movement
Baghdad – Iraq Today:
The lawyer of the Prime Minister, Muhammad Majeed Al-Saadi, the author of the lawsuit against the Governor of the Central Bank, revealed that the current head of the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Mustafa Ghaleb Makhif, does not have an important condition of the bank’s conditions and lacks economic experience, ruling out the relationship of the Sadrist movement to support the governor in this regard, given his complete withdrawal from the state.
Al-Saadi said, in press statements, we have already filed a call to the Federal Court on this day, regarding the Central Bank of Iraq and its governor, because it is not possible to manage crises under exceptional circumstances, as he does not have an important condition of the Central Bank, namely to be a banking or economic man, but the governor is a man specialized in law, and we based the lawsuit on Article 13 of the Central Bank Law, which is the lack of conditions for the current governor of the Central Bank of Iraq.
The lawyer who filed the lawsuit against the governor of the Central Bank pointed out that his lawsuit will be held next Monday before the Federal Court, in person, and in the presence of his representative, Ahmed Mazen Makiya.
Mohammed Majeed al-Saadi pointed out that Central Bank Governor Mustafa Ghaleb Makhif “does not have any experience in this field in terms of financial and economic banking, as he is a jurist”.
He said the central bank “was run in a period where there were no economic crises”.
“The importance of management and leadership in light of crises is highlighted, and the management of the Central Bank was good until two crises appeared, the first in the time of Al-Kadhimi when the dollar exchange rate rose to more than 20 points, and now it has risen by more than 10 points, in addition to their financial and economic policy in other aspects that are not visible to the public,” he said.
“The matter has not been addressed by the central bank, as is the case experienced by the Russian government and currency, despite US pressure from the Federal Bank, due to political demands to pressure the Iraqi Prime Minister, Mohammed Shia al-Sudani,” he said.
The prime minister’s lawyer, Mohammed Majid al-Saadi, stated that he “went down the legal path in this file, not the political one.”
The Sadrist movement has withdrawn all its activities from the Iraqi state, he said, ruling out that the Sadrist movement is “supportive of the governor of the Central Bank”.
Tishwash: Iraq remains under the tutelage of the corrupt.” Research centers describe combating corruption as a “joke
Today, Friday, The National International News Network described the anti-corruption efforts of the Iraqi authorities as a “joke”, while confirming the country’s complete fall under the control of corruption sponsorship networks affiliated with official political parties.
In a report translated by the network (Baghdad Today), the network stated that “Iraq is waging today a losing battle against corruption that lasted for more than twenty years, during which it was unable to achieve any significant victory,” noting that “the defendants in the case of the theft of the century escaped from legal accountability.”
The network stated that “experts emphasized that the problem of Iraq, which represents an obstacle preventing its ability to win the war on corruption, is the involvement of many political parties in corruption networks and their direct sponsorship,” noting that “it is unlikely that the Sudanese government or its anti-corruption committees will be able to hold high-level officials accountable.” In the state apparatus and the political parties that form the government.
One of the officials of the former government records review committee, confidentially told Al-Shabaka, assuring it that “any research into a major corruption case leads to links to high-ranking political parties. There is no major theft that these parties were not given a share of.”
He went on to say that “special grades are one of the biggest factors of great corruption in the country, as they are appointed by the Council of Ministers and it is impossible to remove them from their positions or transfer them even by the minister responsible for the institution in which they work, as this requires direct approval from the Council of Ministers itself, the matter Which makes removing the corrupt among them impossible, especially if they have close ties to political parties within the Council of Ministers.
The network also indicated that “other experts and local officials in Iraq, who refused to reveal their identities, confirmed that” special positions are usually granted to incompetent personalities or those linked to influential political parties, who usually use their positions to obtain illegal funds through which they finance these parties.
For his part, Omar al-Nadawi, a researcher at the Peace Empowerment Center in Iraq, told Al-Shabaka also that “the biggest challenge facing anti-corruption committees in Iraq is the absence of qualified cadres or those who are not afraid of being intimidated by political parties,” stressing, “after twenty years.” Due to the growth of the system of official corruption sponsorship networks, there are simply no longer many honest officials or those who are able to assume the responsibility of combating corruption in official circles and to engage in war with those parties,” as he put it.
The director of the Etoica Rescue Consulting Center, Kiroc Soel, described anti-corruption efforts in Iraq as a “joke,” explaining that “the new and former head of the Commission, with political connections, failed under the administration of two authorities to achieve any tangible results with anti-corruption efforts,” he said. link
