Kurdish tusk - Attending the interrogation session of the Central Bank governor is a duty ... and legal measures against absentees{Baghdad: Al Furat News} The representative of the Islamic Group, Salim Hamza, stressed, on Monday, the importance of attending the interrogation session of the governor of the Central Bank, pointing to legal measures taken against absentees.
Hamza told {Al-Furat News} that “one of the actions and duties of the House of Representatives is to interrogate the executive authorities,” stressing that “we are with the questioning of the governor of the Central Bank because one of the most important actions of the House of Representatives is to follow up on the government’s actions, including the questioning of the executive.”

He pointed out that “the interrogation includes all the executive bodies, whether ministers or general managers or others.”

He added, “Attending the interrogation session is obligatory. Anyone who is absent will take legal measures against him by the council presidency.”
The House of Representatives was scheduled to question the Governor of the Central Bank by the head of the Parliamentary Wisdom Bloc, Faleh Al-Sari, after parliament was not convinced of the first’s answers during its hosting of one of the parliament sessions last November, but he announced that the interrogation session would be lifted for another notice.
The representative of the Nasr Bloc, Hoda Sajjad, revealed in a televised interview broadcast on the Al-Furat satellite channel, that a parliamentary bloc came to question the head of the Media and Communications Commission in absentia and evaded the attendance of the interrogation session of the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq scheduled for last Wednesday in the parliament session.
And she said, “The determination of some MPs not to proceed with the questioning of the governor of the Central Bank gave a bad message to the Iraqi street,” bearing the Presidency of Parliament.
While she announced her surprise that “the first deputy speaker did not ask the media department to publish the attendance as he does with the rest of the sessions, noting that all representatives were present from 3 pm to 6 pm, and the start of the session did not ring and we were surprised to raise it to another notice.”
