Parliament Speaker Investigated for Corruption

Iranian news agency FARS reports that senior Iraqi officials have launched a probe into corruption accusations against the country's parliament speaker, Osama al-Nujaifi.

Media reports in Iraq have leveled several corruption accusations against al-Nujaifi in recent days, and questioned the source of the $600,000 he has spent on repairing his house.

Some Iraqi officials have also accused al-Nujaifi of making too many visits to foreign countries. Hannan al-Fatlawi, an Iraqi parliament member from the State of Law Coalition, said:

"Is Nujaifi Iraq's parliament speaker or foreign minister that has taken up diplomatic duties? What are the fruits of these numerous visits to the other countries? Are there any other officials in the other countries who make so many travels?"
