Speaker of Parliament Cleared of Corruption

By John Lee.

The Speaker of the Iraqi parliament, Salim Al-Jabbouri [Saleem al-Jabouri] has reportedly been cleared of corruption allegations on Tuesday due to insufficient evidence.

Last week, Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi claimed that al-Jabouri and at least five lawmakers and business people had tried to persuade him to secure specific contracts and to reinstate employees fired due to corruption, according to Associated Press.
