Today, Wednesday, the Parliamentary Integrity Committee uncovered a fundamental cause demonstrating the previous Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s, involvement in stealing tax secretariat money, although the theft instruments were deemed “purely governmental.”
In an interview with Al-Maalouma Agency, Committee member Ali Al-Jamali stated that “the real and factual connection to evidence and confessions, which prove the involvement of the former Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, in the theft of the century, needs no more time.”
“Al-Kazemi facilitated and planned the process of stealing tax secretariat funds by appointing Haitham Al-Jubouri as his financial advisor,” he said, adding that “the evidence confirms that the one who planned the theft is Haitham Al-Jubouri.”
“These tools are all purely governmental and not external,” Al-Jamali added, noting that “higher government agencies in the Prime Minister’s office and the Minister of Finance intervened and facilitated matters, in the event that the disbursement of one of the financial instruments stopped.”
Earlier, Firas Al-Maslamawi, a spokesperson of the State of Law Coalition, accused Western nations of hiding the corrupt in Mustafa Al-Kazemi’s administration, calling on the government to issue international arrest warrants against all the corrupt.
The secrets of the theft of tax secretariat money and the personalities involved are being revealed day by day, at a time when fingers point to the involvement of officials from the previous government led by Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, as recently confirmed by Haider Hanoun, the head of the Federal Integrity Commission, who drew red lines around four senior personalities.
