After the arrest of the main accused, a legal expert clarifies the expected penalties for tax thieves

10/25/2022 15:13:12

Legal expert Ali Al-Tamimi explained, on Tuesday, the expected penalties for tax thieves, pointing out that the confession of the arrested suspects will inevitably lead to the arrest of important figures, and these figures may deny the charges against them.

Al-Tamimi said in a statement received by {Euphrates News} that “the arrest warrants were issued in accordance with Article 444/11 of the Iraqi Penal Code, theft of state funds, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison with the aggravating circumstances contained therein. Emphasis is provided in this article…where the arrest warrant was followed by a ban on travel and investigation or search to seize all his money in connection with the crime. 


He continued: “I think this will be followed by placing a sign not to dispose of the movable and immovable funds of those interested, and to open the general traffic, real estate and government banks to prevent the disposal of the money until the case is resolved,” noting that “the accused who were arrested, important confessions necessitate that the investigation be confidential in these cases.”

And by a decision of the investigation court, so that information does not leak to wanted persons, they will be recognized by those arrested, and this leads to their escape or the scattering of evidence.” 

He added, “Even those who fled abroad can prepare files to retrieve them as wanted persons, whether in the public prosecution or integrity, and retrieve them with the smuggled money, especially with the existence of the 2005 money laundering agreement ratified by Iraq in 2007, and that the confession of the arrested suspects will inevitably lead to the arrest of important figures and these figures may deny.”

The charges brought against her, but the Code of Criminal Procedure resolved this, so it obliged the investigation court to file independent cases against them, and the accused who were recognized as a witness against them in this case .. according to Article 125 of fundamentalism, and no one is above the law. 

And he indicated, “Popular pressure was great in this case, and its important results came. In fact, the people are the source of the authorities. I think that this case will be a gateway to eliminating financial and administrative corruption in Iraq…whether internally or what is smuggled and recovering.”  LINK

Think I have to call ca ca on this 1. 
Kuwait had a full-page article saying they would not add value to their currency.
They did it the very next day.
I think it is a ploy to throw off speculators.
Not saying they will do it tomorrow!
But expectations are alive.

The central bank resolves the controversy over the dollar exchange rate plan

24th October, 2022

On Monday, the Central Bank of Iraq resolved the controversy over reducing the value of the dollar against the dinar, in response to a report by a member of the Parliamentary Finance Committee, Nermin Maarouf.

Nermin said in a statement she received (Al-Oula News) a copy of, “A few days ago, as the Finance Committee in the House of Representatives, we asked the Governor of the Central Bank about rumors of a depreciation of the dollar against the dinar, in response to a report we sent.”  

The deputy added, that the central bank replied, “that it does not intend to change the value of the dollar for several reasons, as the current exchange rate of the dollar achieved some positive results and reduced the government budget deficit to a good degree, although the government was able to pay off some of its internal and external debts.”  

The bank explained, according to Nermin, that “changes in the dollar exchange rate in the near future will create a state of instability in the currency market, cause distrust of the dinar, negatively affect economic activity and the investment situation, and increase speculative activity in the currency.”  

The bank’s answer also stated, “The devaluation of the dinar against the dollar will enhance the competitiveness of local products and reduce the demand for foreign imports.”  

The bank stated, “With regard to the negative impact of the current dollar exchange rate on people’s livelihoods, especially for the poor, the central bank believes that the government can provide aid and assistance to these groups and improve food stamps to mitigate the consequences of dollar appreciation instead of returning it to its old value.”   LINK

They are clearly trying to keep everyone on the back foot for a purpose.. Just like the rehashed articles about not changing the exchange rate again (like the above), when they clearly have every intention of doing so.

There are at least 4-5 that counter the calls for not to change the exchange rate.

They printed new notes in 2018 to the tune of $500 million real close, it is the Governments program to new currency issuance and therefore, the date of the cabinet not disclosed consistently is used to keep those in expectation of that at bay until the final moment.. imo…

I like what I am seeing this week.. This month is coming to a close and the world is liking the progress. The calls for assurances have been many.

There are repercussions for not seating the government.. They all know it..  Far to costly not to get it done now.. imo ~ MM


Harvester » October 25th, 2022

All these news articles that come in all day long IMO are like a dust storm, which I am sure Iraq is familiar with lol. But then MM posts and it is like the dust clears and we find we are still moving on the right path in the right direction. So appreciate and look forward to your afternoon posts MM. Thank you

MilitiaMan » October 25th, 2022

Thank you too. I am glad to help. Lets see what the next couple of days bring us.. From the looks of it there is serious anticipation for the GOI to have a vote on the cabinet.. There are side bar things that are going on in the Middle easy starting tomorrow..  Of which has implications to Viet Nam imo as well.. The middle east and emerging markets are going to explode again into next year. Much is likely to hinge on what we see in the short term.. Follow the money… imo ~ MM
