Zebari loses Appeal against Removal as Finance Minister

By John Lee.

Iraq’s former Finance Minister Hoshyar Zebari has lost an appeal at the country’s federal court against his removal as minister by the parliament.

Rudaw reports that the 62-year-old former minister lost his appeal 6 to 3 votes on Tuesday.

The Iraqi parliament withdrew confidence from Zebari in September, in a move that he regarded as unconstitutional.
