Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has reportedly accused his predecessor, Nouri al-Maliki (pictured), of intervening in the daily duties of the PM’s office.
Sources close to the Iraqi PM told BasNews:
“Abadi told US officials that in recent weeks Maliki has involved himself in a few cases, causing political tension. This has made it difficult for his government to concentrate on fighting the extremist group in Iraq.”
Abadi told US officials that Maliki played a role in the death sentence handed down to the former Sunni member of the Iraqi Parliament, Ahmed al-Alwani, on charges of murder, which could harm Baghdad’s relationship with a the Sunnis.
