Local | 11/04/2024  Mawazine News – Baghdad   , a member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Representative Alia Nassif, revealed the involvement of what she called some of Prime Minister Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani’s tools in projects to resolve bottlenecks with corruption, while she pointed out that the only solution for Iraq is a “code of honour” whose content is “We will not plunder the state.”

 Nassif said during a televised statement followed by Mawazine News: “A general director in the Ministry of Construction and Housing was summoned, and we then focused on the presence of Minister Benkin Rikani as well.

He was interrogated regarding the 14 billion that “Green Tahouat” carried, and his answer was that he disavowed his responsibility for any action after that. The money was delivered to the contractors and the rest of the details are in the judiciary and we are awaiting the results.”

She added, “The two companies (Danube and Emaar Al Badia) are the ones working within Al-Khadraa and the money was going to them, and so far they do not have final accounts. Their capital is 5 billion for each company and they receive projects worth 41 billion. If there is delay, the government will not be able to deal with them.”
