Serious leaks from inside the Central Bank of Iraq!

 * The US Federal Reserve summons the Director General of Banking Control at the Central Bank, and she goes with an interpreter, along with a statement and information on all Iraqi banks.

 * The Governor of the Central Bank and the Director General of Investment with the Compliance Department of the Central Bank of Iraq went urgently to Amman to meet a delegation from the US Treasury a week ago, and Iraqi officials were (rebuked) for suspicious transfers in the currency auction over the past year.

 * All the talk revolves around what the federal and US treasury audits of currency sales witnessed during the current year (for a daily sale rate of more than $250 million) discovered that many of the transfers were intended to smuggle and launder money.

 * The initial decision of the US Treasury was to freeze four banks (the Middle East, the clutch, Al-Ansari, and Asia).

 * The current hidden is that there are suspicions of the work of 14 other banks during the past year, the discussion is taking place around it, and the Central Bank is trying to delay or stop the treasury procedures against these banks because depriving other banks in addition to the current four means the collapse of the Iraqi banking system.

 * The current sales of the auction, especially (remittances), are fully audited by the federation, and every day a group of remittances is returned, and this is the main reason for the rise in the price of the dollar because the price is linked to the remittance and not to cash. Therefore, the bank’s procedure to increase the exchange companies’ share of the cash remains a helpless and unscientific procedure.

 * The most dangerous thing is that there are leaks currently circulating that the US Treasury has given signals to the Central Bank that it will reduce the amount of dollars (cash cash) granted to the Central Bank in the future because it is against the policy of increasing cash cash in the Iraqi market for fear that this cash will reach groups, countries and others … and this will also affect the coming days On the amount of cash in the market and thus will inevitably affect the exchange rate.

 * It is clear that the current administration of the Central Bank as a whole (chairman and directors) has become internationally unreliable and its impact will focus on the poor citizen.

 * Iraq will pay the price for the options that the leaders of the financial, monetary and economic institutions are subject to partisan quotas away from competence, integrity and transparency.

Al-Sistani emphasizes “peaceful coexistence” in Iraq a meeting with UNAMI chief

Iraq NewsUNAMIAli Al-Sistani

2022-12-07 04:31Font

Shafaq News/ The head of the UN Assistance mission in Iraq (UNAMI), Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, on Wednesday met with Iraq’s top Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, in the southern city of Najaf.

Al-Sistani, 92, is considered the most important clerical authority for millions of Iraqi Shiites, as well as millions of others across the Shiite world. He lives in Najaf, which is home to the Hawza Najaf, the oldest Shiite seminary in the world.

In statements to reporters after the meeting, Plasschaert commended al-Sistani’s support for “peaceful coexistence” in Iraq, expressing gratitude for receiving her today. 

The UN High-Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, Miguel Angel Moratinos, said he conveyed the greetings of the UN secretary-general ans Pope Francis to Ayatollah al-Sistani. 

Moratinos reiterated in his statements to reporters after the meeting the UN upholds “national reconciliation” and “protecting civilizations” in Iraq.

The cleric rarely meets with foreign officials, although famously met Pope Francis during his visit to Iraq in spring 2021, when he also visited the war-damaged city of Mosul. He seldom comments on political events in Iraq, leading a quietist clergy that follows a policy of refraining from siding with any political party.

But he is widely considered a political moderate and has made statements in the past that some analysts have interpreted as being against established political parties in Iraq, indirectly criticising them for corruption and mismanagement. He has also spoken out against violence against civilians, be it at the hands of foreign forces, Iraqi security forces or terrorist groups.

In detail. Sistani’s office issues a statement on the meeting of the Supreme Reference with Plasschaert

Baghdad – Mawazine News
The Office of the Supreme Religious Authority, Mr. Ali Sistani, issued a statement detailing the Supreme Repertodian with UN Representative Jeanine Plaschaert.

Below is the text of the statement:

in the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate

His Eminence Mr. Sistani (Let’s stay) received this afternoon Mr. Miguel Angel Moratinos, Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations in charge of developing the Plan of Action of the International Organization for the Protection of Religious Sites after the attacks it has suffered in various places in the world in recent years.

His Eminence listened to his explanation about that plan and the principles on which it is based and the procedures followed.
During the meeting, His Eminence stressed the importance of concerted efforts in promoting a culture of peaceful coexistence, renouncing violence and hatred, and consolidating the values of harmony based on the care of rights and mutual respect between adherents of different religions and intellectual trends.
His Eminence pointed out that the tragedies suffered by many peoples and ethnic and social groups in many parts of the world as a result of the intellectual and religious persecution, suppression of fundamental freedoms and lack of social justice play a role in the emergence of some extremist movements that use blind violence against unarmed civilians and attack religious centers and archaeological sites of others who disagree with them in thought or belief.
His Eminence stressed the need to address the backgrounds of these unacceptable and condemned phenomena in all cases, and to work hard to achieve a measure of justice and tranquility in various societies befitting human dignity as God Almighty wanted it, which contributes to reducing the atmosphere conducive to the spread of extremist ideas.
His Eminence expressed his appreciation for the efforts of the United Nations in this regard, wishing Mr. Moratinos success in the performance of his mission, and carried his greetings to Mr. Antonio Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations. Finished
