Representative and former minister Wael Abdel Latif confirmed on Monday that the General Tax Authority is still captive to corruption mafias.

Abdel-Latif said in a statement to the Maalouma Agency, “The tax administrations and leaders in charge of the Authority are mostly involved in corruption,” noting that “state facilities, especially the Tax Authority, are a corrupt environment capable of growth.”

He added, “The tax system is unclear, and so far there are no penalties for those who fail to pay.”

He added, “The phenomenon of corruption has become common in all aspects of the state, including an important and vital joint represented by the General Tax Authority in Iraq, which has become a prisoner in the hands of the whales of corruption who have harmed Iraq’s reputation.”

He called on “the government and the Parliamentary Integrity Committee to monitor the work and procedures of this body and work to rewrite all laws related to taxes.”

Al-Sudani pledged earlier to “rein in” the rampant corruption in the joints of the Iraqi state, including the corruption scandal, the details of which were recently revealed in the General Tax Authority, which represented the theft of 2.5 billion dollars.
