The representative of the Sadiqoun parliamentary bloc, Ali Turki Al-Jamali, revealed, on Saturday, the existence of a parliamentary move to open corruption files related to former Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari, noting that Zebari caused billions of dollars to be wasted.
Al-Jamali said in a statement to “The Information”, “Hoshyar Zebari was dismissed from his position and withdrew confidence from him by the House of Representatives in accordance with the legal and constitutional frameworks on charges related to financial corruption.”
He added that “the exclusion of Zebari by the Federal Court will not exempt him from legal prosecution,” noting that “there is a parliamentary movement towards opening all cases of resistance against the former Minister of Finance and referring him to the Iraqi judiciary.”
Al-Jamali stressed “the necessity of quickly prosecuting the dismissed former Finance Minister on charges of corruption, Hoshyar Zebari.”
The Federal Court had earlier decided to exclude the leader of the Kurdistan Democratic Party, Hoshyar Zebari, from running for the post of President of the Republic because of his dismissal in 2016 by the House of Representatives on corruption charges. finished / 25 h
