Al-Masala: A source close to Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi said, Saturday, September 19, 2020, that the Anti-Corruption Agency arrested 4 government officials on charges of corruption.

The source said that the Anti-Corruption Agency today arrested 4 directors.

He added that the detainees were the managers of Ramadi, Fallujah banks, Abu Ghraib Salah al-Din.

A private government source revealed to Al-Masalla the implementation of the legal arrest orders of six officials accused of corruption, after the arrest of the former director of the retirement authority, Ahmed Al-Saadi, on Tuesday, September 15, 2020.

The source said that the names of those responsible will be announced soon, and that the Corruption Investigation Commission is continuing its national mission to pursue the corrupt in an effective and serious manner.

The source revealed that the defendants will be brought before an investigating judge, and all of them are accused of corruption files with clear details.

On August 27, Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi formed a committee to investigate major corruption and exceptional crimes cases and began to deal with seven major corruption files involving large heads.

The source said that the Iraqi people will soon see and hear the removal of the most corrupt officials.

Iraq is one of the countries whose development is impeded by corruption, and the Iraqi citizen has reached a state of despair for not being able to hold accountable any corrupt, even if he is small, which encouraged the corrupt to appear on satellite channels and the media and talk about commissions and commissions without fear of punishment, or respect for them. The least to the people’s feelings.

Informed sources told Al-Masalla that arrest and summoning orders will include hundreds of officials from different governorates, and under judicial orders that cannot be appealed.

The source pointed out that strict implementation procedures accompany these orders, and not just routine notices and statements as used to in previous eras, where forces and influential personalities intervene to prevent this or that accountability.

The sources revealed that the procedures will include withdrawing the hand of those involved from service, referring their files to integrity and the judiciary, and activating judicial procedures in relation to previous files that were covered up by parties, courtesies or bribes.

And it seems clearly that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi, after forming a supreme committee to investigate major corruption files, is determined to implement justice for the corrupt.

A member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Jawad Hamdan, said, Wednesday, September 16, 2020, that Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi will be in confrontation with the leaders and heads of political blocs in his campaign against corruption, saying in a statement received by the obelisk that the Prime Minister’s steps are promising and come in The framework for its implementation of what it presented in its government program in fighting corruption

Malameh began serious steps in the efforts to combat corruption after the arrest of about seven officials by the special committee formed by Al-Kazemi, but these steps did not satisfy some of the influential forces that led a media campaign against Al-Kazemi’s actions in the new appointments that were within a functional context and not a radical reform measure. By itself, however, the political forces, which were surprised by the changes in positions, sought to distort the image, and portrayed themselves as being against quotas, while they were adhering to the sharing of positions, influence and special ranks.
