Iraq launched a probe into Kurdistan’s lucrative oil revenues

Iraq ratchets up pressure on Kurds after independence vote

BAGHDAD,— Iraq’s central government on Monday unleashed a legal barrage against Kurdish officials and sought to seize key businesses in a fresh bid to tighten the screws over a disputed independence referendum.

The latest moves come exactly two weeks after an overwhelming majority of voters in Iraq’s autonomous Kurdistan region backed independence in a non-binding ballot slammed as illegal by Baghdad.

The central authorities have already severed ties between Kurdistan and the outside world by cutting international air links to the region, while neighbouring Turkey and Iran have threatened to close their borders to oil exports.

Now, in a new round of attempts to ratchet up pressure, Baghdad’s National Security Council announced that a probe has been launched into Kurdistan’s lucrative oil revenues and officials in the region who might have illegally monopolised the market.

“The corrupt will be exposed and the funds recovered,” said a statement from the council, headed by Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

The council also said that “a list of names” of Kurdish officials who helped organised the referendum had been compiled and “judicial measures have been taken against them”, without giving more details.

Kurdistan considered as the most corrupted part of Iraq. According to Kurdish lawmakers billions of dollars are missing from Iraqi Kurdistan’s oil revenues.

A Kurdish lawmaker said in March 2017 the amount of $1.266 billion from oil exports and Iraqi Kurdistan’s revenue has gone missing over the last three months.

Massoud Barzani, whose term as President of the Kurdistan Region ended on August 20, 2015 but refused to step down and remains unofficially in official and closed the Kurdish parliament, has been accused by critics of amassing huge wealth for his family instead of serving the population. Barzani’s son is the Kurdistan region’s intelligence chief and his nephew Nechirvan Barzani is the prime minister.

Also the Talabani family including Jalal Talabani’s wife, Hero Ibrahim and her sons Bafel and Qubad and their relatives alongside other PUK leaders accused by critics of amassing huge wealth from oil business.

According to local and international analysts the lack of control mechanisms in Kurdistan Region makes it a paradise for illegal financial activities by the Kurdish ruling leaders.

The central government — which has already demanded to take over Kurdistan’s airports and borders — is also looking to reclaim control over mobile phone companies in the region, including two of the largest providers in Iraq, the statement said.

Baghdad also once again called on Ankara and Tehran — which both opposed the referendum over fears of fuelling demands from their own Kurdish communities — to close their border posts with Kurdistan and “stop all trade” with the region.

The angry dispute over the referendum — also rejected by the US — is the latest twist in the decades-long movement by Iraq’s Kurds to break away from Baghdad.

The referendum spat comes as Kurdish fighters and central government forces have continued to work together in offensives to push back the Islamic State group, with Washington warning the poll could “increase instability” in the region.

The defence committee in Iraq’s parliament demanded Kurdish security forces hand over IS fighters captured in a recent battle to retake the jihadist bastion of Hawija.

The US-led coalition backing up the operations against IS has estimated that some 1,000 jihadists surrendered, mostly to the Kurdish peshmerga forces, during the seizure of the town.

The central committee overseeing the popular protests of Muqtada al-Sadr on Monday threatened to storm the Iraqi parliament building if the current electoral commission is extended.

A member of the Committee, Ikhlas al-Obeidi, said during a press conference held in Tahrir Square in central Baghdad that, despite its previous decision to postpone the protests in order to give the parliament a chance to choose a new commission, this decision did not benefit MPs, “and did not review their accounts and consciences once for the sake of Serving Iraq

Al-Obeidi stressed that the Commission rejects any extension of the work of the current Commission for any reason, and continued: “If the extension, the people will withdraw its mandate from the members of parliament, and will not be the last of the people’s grip, either respond to the voice of people, either to give up and leave the citizen to decide Destiny “.

Obeidi urged the Iraqi people to make “a two-million-dollar push to turn the page of parliament and open a new page,” saying that the blood shed on the bench would not be in vain.

He pointed to the need for the efforts of all deputies in parliament to achieve this goal and the fastest time, calling on the demonstrators to raise their voices.

Thousands of his supporters have twice broken into the Green Zone in the center of the capital and entered the prime minister’s office and the parliament building to protest against the failure to form a technocratic government to meet their leader’s demands.
