The leader of the coordination framework, Jabbar Odeh al-Maamouri, talked on Sunday about the move of former Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kazemi to seek protection from the US embassy in Baghdad, he said.
Al-Maamouri said in an interview that “former Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi still frequents the US embassy building in Baghdad and asks for its protection, especially since there are many financial and administrative violations allocated, which will affect him in the near future according to the preliminary results of the investigation in addition to other issues related to the national security of the country.”
He added that “Kazemi is currently relucating between Iraq, Lebanon and the UAE, and the latter is currently the closest to move and live in it after his retirement,” stressing that “his political future is over and it has become a scorched card in the public scene.”
He pointed out that “2023 will carry surprises of high caliber, especially since investigations into the violations of the Kademi government have reached important facts that will appear to the public very soon in condemning many important issues.”
Last October, al-Kazemi left the palace, after parliament approved the government of Prime Minister Mohammed Shiaa al-Sudani.
Al-Kazemi served as head of Iraq’s National Intelligence Service on June 7, 2016, until he served as prime minister from May 7, 2020 until October 13, 2022.
