10:10 – 07/11/2020

Member of Parliamentary Law Committee Hussein Al-Aqabi pledged, on Saturday, the success of the government in eliminating corruption by taking several major steps, indicating that the judiciary cannot confront corruption without a high integrity court in which the judge is a security guard.

In a statement to Al-Maalouma, Al-Aqabi said, “The government and parliament are required to grant judicial powers to the Office of Financial Supervision to pass cases directly.”

He added, “Legislation regulating the government contracts law allows for the follow-up of contracts in a transparent manner, as well as the formation of a High Integrity Court to investigate corruption.”

He explained that “the Supreme Court of Integrity is similar to the Federal Court in which judges are appointed from jurisdiction and transfer their residence to the Green Zone to prevent targeting or threatening them, in addition to appointing 500 judicial investigators from the jurisdiction as well and granting powers to open corruption cases directly from FAO to Zakho without exception.”   LINK
