A parliamentary source reported on Saturday that outgoing Speaker of Parliament Saleem al-Jubouri and his deputies bought nine armored vehicles before the end of their official work.
The source said in an interview with “Mawazine News” that “Jubouri and his deputies Hammam Hamoudi and Aram Sheikh Mohammed bought 3 armored cars for each of them at the expense of Parliament, before turning them to retirement.”
He added that “according to the law of the House of Representatives and formations, these cars will keep them,” pointing out that “amounts amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
The parliament ended early this month.
The President of the Republic Fouad Masoum has issued a decree to refer 328 deputies from the third parliamentary session to retire on the basis of Article 13 / I of the Law of the House of Representatives No. 13 of 2018.
Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi rejected the law on the privileges of deputies, which was legislated by the House of Representatives in a vague manner, which the presidency has done now, and confirmed the submission of an appeal because it did not get the approval of the government as having financial consequences.
It is noteworthy that the new issue of the Iraqi fact sheet issued earlier, number 4499 included several laws and decrees of the Republic approved by the House of Representatives and ratified by the Presidency of the Republic, including the Law of the House of Representatives and Formations No. (13) for the year.
