The Iraqi authorities have reportedly released the deputy governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, Mohamed Salih, who has been detained for more than month on charges related to corruption.
In October, Prime Minister Maliki removed the head of the central bank, Sinan al-Shabibi, accusing him of mismanagement and currency manipulation. He is understood to be still outside the country.
The fact that the deputy governor was freed with no charges against him after a month, is a further indication that the accusations of mismanagement and currency manipulation were unfounded in the first place.
Hope Maliki considers filling CBI governor's position, then perhaps he could be removed from public service as well.
