State of Law Coalition: Anyone who participated in the theft of the century will be punished by the hand of justice

Baghdad – Iraq Today:

MP for the State of Law bloc, Jawad Al-Ghazali, said that everyone who participated in the case of “theft of the century” will be held accountable and its file is not finished yet.

Al-Ghazali said in a press statement, “The previous government headed by Mustafa Al-Kazemi came after demonstrations, one of the reasons for the protest was corruption, but it caused the waste of the country’s money and many thefts.”

He added, “Some of those who came in the previous government had nothing and overnight they became owners of trillions,” noting that “the law in Iraq is not strict against politicians or officials.”

He explained that “the file of theft of the century is not over and everyone who participated and was involved in it will be held accountable,” pointing out that “the government is serious in this matter.”

Al-Fatah: US forces continue to transfer terrorists to Iraqi territory




Information / Baghdad..

Ali Al-Zubaidi, a member of the Al-Fateh Alliance, confirmed today, Friday, that the American forces are present in the Iraqi-Syrian border areas and are working to transfer terrorists towards Iraqi lands, pointing out that ending the flow of terrorist elements towards Iraq requires strong security measures.

Al-Zubaidi told Al-Maalouma, “The transfer of terrorists to Iraq has not stopped, and ISIS elements are still infiltrating or, through American wheels, being transported from Syria towards Iraqi territory.”

He added, “The terrorists are being transferred from Al-Hol camp towards Nineveh Governorate, and then towards the other camps in the Kurdistan region, where the transfer of ISIS towards Iraqi territory did not stop with the protection of the American forces.”

He pointed out that “the transfer of terrorists to Iraq is a huge security breach, as the National Security Service intervened in this matter, and National Security Adviser Qassim Al-Araji directed this issue in order to stop the flow of terrorism towards Iraq, as it needs to take strong security measures to ensure that terrorism does not enter the territory of Iraq.” 

Iran secures release of over $10bn of blocked funds: source – Mehr News Agency (8/11/23)

TEHRAN, Aug. 11 (MNA) – Iran has reportedly managed to secure the release of more than 10 billion worth of funds that have been illegally blocked in South Korea and Iraq for several years because of US sanctions.




A source has told official IRNA news agency that the release of the funds under the deal include $6 billion worth of assets blocked in South Korea as well as a “significant amount of Iranian funds held in the Trade Bank of Iraq”.

The source made the statement on Thursday after media reports said Iran and the US had reached a prisoner swap deal that also included the release of Iranian funds held in South Korea.

“For months, Islamic Republic of Iran has started indirect talks for the exchange of prisoners between #Iran 🇮🇷 and the #USA based on humanitarian reasons. These negotiations took too long with American political approach and tying unrelated issues, but the situation is changing,” Nour News wrote on X.

The statement said the funds in South Korea had already been changed into euro in a bank in Switzerland and were ready to be transferred to an account in the central bank of Qatar as agreed under the prisoner swap deal with the US.

The source confirmed reports that the prisoners had been transferred “to a place outside prison” for the purpose of exchange, adding, however, that they would not be freed until the funds were transferred to accounts designated by Iran.

It came after reports by US media outlets including the New York Times and the CNN quoted sources as saying that Washington will allow the transfer of nearly $6 billion of Iran’s assets in South Korea to an account in the central bank of Qatar where Iran can use them for purchases of food and medicine.

They said the US will also release several Iranian prisoners as part of the deal which will see Iran free five American prisoners.

They claimed that four of the prisoners had been already released from a prison in Tehran into house arrest. The report said the fifth American prisoner was already under house arrest in the country.

Despite having no diplomatic relations with the US, Iranian officials have said in the past that they will be open to prisoner exchange talks with the US out of respect for humanitarian issues.

However, Iran has denied reports that it will accept any restricted access to its blocked funds in other countries, including for humanitarian purchases.




The Iranian government started a procedure earlier this month to refer the dispute with South Korea over the blocked funds to international arbitration.

A lawmaker in the Iranian parliament said earlier this week that Iran will have many options to force South Korea pay back the debt it owes to Iran for purchases of energy products in the past.
