Iraq’s Abadi reveals plans to name corrupts


Iraqi PM Haider Abadi revealed on Tuesday his government plans to release a list containing names of corrupt officials who were recently referred to integrity authority.

Speaking at his weekly press conference, Abadi has urged the legislative and judicial authorities to cooperate with the executive bodies to fight corruption.

Sweeping protests have hit the country’s major cities over poor services due to corruption.

Abadi said his government was serious in meeting the demands of the demonstrators.

To end the protests, Abadi declared earlier this week a package of national projects will be launched in Basra and other provinces.
