Economic and political analyst: The judiciary is required to play an active role in ending corruption

Baghdad The economic and political analyst, Jalil Al-Lami, confirmed that the judiciary is required to play an active role in ending corruption.

He told the National Iraqi News Agency / NINA /: that private banks played a major role in looting public funds in various ways, despite the multiplicity of oversight agencies in Iraq (the Federal Integrity Commission, the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, the Office of Financial Supervision).

Al-Lami justified this: because of the rampant corruption in the joints of the state, for the most important reasons are partisan interference and the assumption of less qualified people to government positions that are distributed on the basis of quotas and not experience.

He added: All government measures to stop the looting and theft of public money did not rise to the level of addressing and eradication of the scourge of corruption.

Al-Lami explained that the matter is still without radical solutions. The reason is that there is no political desire to fight corruption, because most of the rampant corruption in Iraq is covered politically. Evidence for this is that corruption whales who are arrested by the state are quickly released on bail that does not rise to the level of the crime.

He stressed: The Iraqi judiciary must play an active role and does not allow the release of those accused of these crimes on financial bail, but must prevent them from traveling and detain them and seize their money until all those involved in any theft or looting of public money are diagnosed.
