Expert - Al-Maliki went to Tehran to persuade it to put pressure on Sistani after his support for Al-Kazemis governmentBaghdad / Al-Akhbariya

Strategic affairs researcher Ahmed Al-Sharifi believes that the goal of the President of the State of Law Coalition, Nouri al-Maliki, is to visit Iran and to persuade it to put pressure on the supreme authority, Ali al-Sistani, to stop the support he gave to the government of Mustafa al-Kazemi.

Al-Sharifi said in a press statement, that “Maliki’s concerns began to crystallize when Al-Kazimi embarked on” attempts to dismantle the deep state he founded, which could cause corruption cases that may affect him and other personalities close to him. ”

Al-Sharifi says that the directives of the Sistani authority “released the hand of the Anti-Corruption Committee and represented a clear mandate to run a campaign against those involved in corruption, murder and terrorism cases,” noting that the Supreme Authority‚Äôs meeting with the United Nations representative in Iraq, Jeanine Hennes – Plasschaert was a “mandate for the international will to make changes in If the Iraqi actor fails to take bold steps. ”

Al-Sharifi explains, “What prompted Sistani to intervene was his lack of conviction about Al-Kazemi’s performance in managing these files,” indicating that Al-Kazemi’s justifications for adopting a “soft method” in confronting the parties involved in corruption and murder cases are “unconvincing of reference.”

He concludes that “the short time limit and the state of support that Al-Kazemi enjoys is supposed to be an incentive for the government to launch a larger campaign and not rely on long-term plans.”
