She added that “Abadi did not apply the rule of law against the spoilers condemned by the files that have been investigated by foreign experts,” indicating that “the fight against corruption need to apply the rule of law and leave the political niceties to promote the reality of the service and economic of the country.”

She pointed out that “foreign experts have achieved large files related to ministries and oil licensing tours and a lot of files before leaving Iraq .”
