Al-Halbousi directed to set dates for the questioning of the Minister of Finance, the Governor of the Central Bank, and the head of the Communications Commission
The Speaker of Parliament, Muhammad Al-Halbousi, has directed to set dates for the interrogation of three officials.
According to the parliamentary media department, Al-Halbousi was instructed in today’s parliament session “to set dates for the interrogation of the head of the Media and Communications Commission, the governor of the Central Bank and the Minister of Finance, according to the council’s agenda.”
Al-Halbousi also directed the Parliamentary Legal Committee to shine through its legislative procedures to complete the Federal Court law.
It is noteworthy that the head of the Parliamentary Wisdom Bloc, Faleh Al-Sari, is seeking to question the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Mustafa Ghaleb, because the House of Representatives is not convinced of the answers given during its hosting of last month, and has collected signatures to submit a request to question the governor regarding suspicions in the currency auction.
It is noteworthy that the Supreme Judicial Council announced, on the second of this month, that it would initiate the investigation of joint bank documents in the foreign currency sale window.
A statement by the judiciary media, which Al-Furat News received a copy of, stated that “the investigative court competent to combat money laundering and economic crime has responded to the Central Bank’s request and began conducting the investigation with the documents and documents submitted by the participating banks in the foreign currency sale and purchase window to verify their validity and compliance with the law.” Source
