    The Iraqi Supreme High Court is not an independent body at all. So I would be very suspicious indeed of this verdict in favour of Warka.

    If the verdict blames the old administration of the ministry of finance and the central bank, then the Supreme High Court’s decision is a political one.

    Simply because it was a known fact that the previous administration of the ministry of finance and CBI were not in good terms with Al-Maliki.

    Please refer to CBI’s website for more information (Arabic version). CBI denies these news and confirms that Warka is still under its custody.

    Can anyone advise what is the next step for those people who have deposit with the bank. Is there any chance that we could get our money back. It is going to be three years soon since the depositor’s money has been frozen with bank, could the Bank give us some hints about what the bank will be doing in the near future.
