Iraqi Advisor Objects to Transparency International

The reports by the Transparency International over the corruption in Iraq are not “precise”, an advisor to the Iraqi government said on Friday, according to AKnews.

The annual survey by the Berlin-based organization listed Somalia, Myanmar, Afghanistan, and Iraq as perceived to be the most corrupt, with Denmark, New Zealand, Singapore, Finland, and Canada perceived to be the world’s least corrupt countries.

Economics advisor, Salam al-Qurayshi, told AKnews that the data upon which the organization has based its conclusions have not been taken from official governmental bodies and the independent Iraqi Integrity Board.

“The organization does not have a base in Iraq and its data on Iraq was based on information by those local and foreign companies who failed to implement service projects in the country.”
