WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senior political figures will be shaken by new US sanctions, including the leader of a coalition of state law, Nuri al-Maliki and the head of the popular rally, Falih al-Fayadh, as well as the leader of the Arab project in Iraq Khamis al-Khanjar, according to informed sources.

The newspaper “Al-Arab” London, quoted political sources in Baghdad, said in a press statement today, July 29, 2019, that “the new Washington sanctions will involve Iraqi political figures surrounded by the charges of financial and administrative corruption caused great destruction of the state, including the expected list in addition to Maliki Faleh Fayadh, and Khamis Dagger. ”

The sources pointed out that “there is a new batch of Iraqi personalities, will announce the inclusion of the sanctions of the US Treasury, as happened to the former governor of Salah al-Din Ahmad al-Jubouri (Abu Mazen) and the former governor of Nineveh, Nofal al-Akoub, and leader of the popular crowd Ryan Chaldean.

The Iraqi government’s response to the sanctions on these four figures would encourage the United States to issue lists of other figures, and the head of the Popular Mobilization Authority, Faleh al-Fayyad, may be at the top of a list of new sanctions to be issued by the US Treasury Department.

He pointed out that “the American punishment in the first list included four of those involved directly in the financial corruption related to the funds pumped for the reconstruction of cities hit by the devastation after the occupation of Mosul, which is the suspicions about the responsibility of al-Maliki directly on him when he was prime minister.”

According to the sources, “Maliki expressed concern about the inclusion of US sanctions, when he considered that US reports pointing to suspicious financial links between him and US officers back to the era of his second term, falls within the circle of political targeting and pave the way for the inclusion of sanctions.

“The repeated publication of US reports of accusations against him of corruption, in close timing, is aimed at implicating Iraqi national figures with the US sanctions file, which appears to be based on the principle of monopoly of power and the imposition of international tutelage on governments and independent political figures.”

Maliki also described US corruption charges against him as “false allegations,” including “overt political targeting” and not based on any official source or legal status.

The US DailyPast published earlier the results of an investigation into the large financial commissions received by Nuri al-Maliki, personally and some of his closest aides, to facilitate the acquisition of an American company managed by retired General Frank Helmick, preferential contracts in four military sites in the country .
