According to a report from NINA, the Iraqi government decided today (Thursday) to end the official contract for Ali al-Dabbagh as the Iraqi government Spokesman.
Dabbagh stated earlier:
"I'm the first one who alerted the Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki to the possible existence of suspicions of corruption regarding arms deal with Russia."
The following day, the Prime Minister reportedly denied Dabbagh's statement and some media outlets reported Dabbagh's name "as one of the suspicious officials [with a] role in the Russian arms deal for Iraq worth of $4.2 billion".
