Report : After lifting immunity, former MPs leave Iraq
22nd October, 2021
On Friday, media reports indicated that former deputies left Iraq to some neighboring countries, Europe or America for fear of being prosecuted after the immunities were lifted. dissolved.
A report by Al-Araby Al-Jadeed website stated, today (October 22, 2021), that “the dissolution of the Iraqi parliament on the seventh of this October resulted in the lifting of the parliamentary immunity guaranteed by the constitution for hundreds of deputies whose results showed the last legislative elections that were held on October 10.”
More than 70 percent of them lost their seats, which means that the ministerial committee tasked with pursuing corruption files by the caretaker government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi, will be able to investigate any of them.
The government talk before the elections, invoking the reason for the immunity granted to many of these representatives, was that it was impossible to investigate them, and the Iraqi constitution grants parliamentary immunity to members of the House of Representatives that lasts throughout the duration of the parliamentary session, which amounts to four years, and the judiciary is not entitled, according to this immunity, to prosecute deputies during this period, with the exception of Crimes related to the flagrante delicto.
Officials in Baghdad spoke on more than one occasion about the presence of more than 40 deputies whose names were mentioned in cases of financial corruption after investigating officials who were arrested, most notably the Director of Public Retirement Ahmed Al-Saadi, the director of the “Key Card” company (smart card), Bahaa Al-Maamouri, and the head of The solution party, former head of the Red Crescent Society, Jamal Karbouli.
A government official in Baghdad, who asked not to be named, revealed that there are judicial files against at least 12 deputies in the dissolved parliament, including confessions of current detainees on corruption charges, who said that they provided deputies with sums of money in exchange for facilitating investment work, and others to stop legal procedures against them. According to the source, a deputy is also involved in blackmailing an official in exchange for not raising files related to him that involve crimes against public money, stressing that the special committee to follow up on corruption files headed by General Ahmed Abu Ragheef is expected to initiate recruitment procedures and arrest a number of them soon.
The official indicated that the demise of the immunity of members of the dissolved parliament will facilitate raising the files of some former MPs, whether in the Integrity Commission, or in the Commission to investigate corruption cases, indicating that the follow-up of this file will be carried out in coordination with the judicial authority, which will have the final say in that by accreditation. on the available evidence.
Other sources confirmed that some of the representatives raised about corruption charges and issues left Iraq after announcing the election results and making sure that their names were not among the winners, and that some of them left through Baghdad airport to various destinations, including Lebanon, Jordan, Iran, Turkey, and European countries, without being stopped. by the authorities.
Commenting on this, the independent candidate who won membership in the new parliament, Basem Khashan, explained that the end of the parliament’s immunity after the dissolution of parliament on October 7 gave the judiciary an opportunity to try members of the dissolved parliament, and currently there are fears that some of the accused may escape outside the country, and about the possibility of the parties’ defense and the powerful forces of former MPs accused of corruption, Khashan wondered: “We are waiting for the parties’ position on that, so will they stick to them?”
In turn, former parliament member Adnan al-Danbous confirmed, “People who have rumors and corruption cases are currently leaving the country, unfortunately,” explaining, “only the judiciary can prevent the accused from traveling.” Danbos pointed out that “immunity has been lifted from the former parliamentarians, and they are now subject to the laws in force, and any case can be submitted to the courts for resolution,” considering that public opinion “can be a pressing factor and an aid to taking legal measures against them,” noting that quotas ” It caused covering up many files related to MPs and former officials.”
Officials estimate the value of the money wasted due to corruption since the US occupation of Iraq in 2003 at hundreds of billions, including more than 300 billion dollars smuggled out of the country. The Commission for Investigation into Corruption and Major Crimes Issues, which Al-Kazemi formed, also arrested officials and politicians on corruption charges, some of whom were subjected to judicial rulings.
Al-Kazemi had formed at the end of August 2020, a higher committee, with wide powers, headed by Lieutenant-General Ahmed Abu Ragheef, to open corruption files, investigate officials, and put a special force affiliated with the Counter-Terrorism Service under the command of the committee, which succeeded in arresting a number of officials and politicians. And last April, Iraqi officials confirmed that investigations conducted by the governmental Anti-Corruption Committee showed the involvement of a number of members of the dissolved parliament and former officials in huge corruption deals. However, the request to lift the immunity was not granted.
The former Inspector General of the Ministry of Interior, Jamal Al-Asadi, said that the work of this committee is limited to looking into and investigating the orders or complaints that Al-Kazemi refers to it, or specifically referred by the Integrity Commission, estimating in a press statement the number of corruption files currently before this committee, including Between 30 and 50 files.
Al-Asadi indicated, in the context, that there is close cooperation between the Anti-Corruption Committee and the Integrity Commission, in order to resolve major corruption files related to those with special degrees, political figures, and issues that require the approval of the Prime Minister, or the approval of the intelligence, security and control agencies in order to present them for investigation.

The information on the digital transformation that is upon is everywhere. The amount of top level work completed now is main stream and straight from the highest in Finance in the world. They are openly talking about Retail Digital Currencies, digital cross border payments, etc..
With them even showing that the 1,000 – 10,000 notes are disappeared from the ATMs is very telling.
With the UST telling us the G-20 have 136 countries in agreement on digital International Taxation and a flat tax, the coss boarder data and digital trade noted by the G-7 today, it is not surprising that they would be adjusting for the NSCNs to replace those the 1,000 – 10,000s.
The need for them will diminish with a new international exchange rate applied. It doesn’t take long to replenish ATMS. The goal is not to worry the citizens, the goal is to make them happy with the new purchase power that the new smaller notes will bring.
Notice they use the words INCLUSIVE GLOBAL GOVERNANCE!!! That is because the digital transformation is approved and on stage for all to see.. IMO there is nothing to stop it now.. Lets see what they show us next.. ~ MM
“It also covers digital trade systems and fair and inclusive global governance.”

She added that the principles cover open digital markets, cross-border information flows, and protections for workers, consumers and businesses. It also covers digital trade systems and fair and inclusive global governance.
“We must address undue obstacles to transcontinental data flows as we continue to address privacy, data protection, and protection of intellectual property rights,” said a document accompanying the meeting.
“This agreement is a real breakthrough that came as a result of hard diplomatic effort,” said a British official familiar with the deal. LINK
