Integrity Commission Investigates Sugar Deal

A member of the Iraqi Parliament’s Integrity Commission has said that southern Iraq’s Basra Integrity Commission had opened an investigation about a government’s deal to purchase 100,000 tons of sugar at above the international market price.

Aliyia Nuseif told Aswat al-Iraq news agency that “the Trade Ministry had signed a contract with Zahrat al-Jibal Company to supply it with 100,000 tons of sugar with prices much higher than the average international levels.”

He added that “the Committee that had signed the contract included the Trade Ministry’s Inspector, its Undersecretary and Advisor.” The sugar is currently kept in stores in Basra Province.
