Iraq "issues Warrants for 26 Top Officials"

By John Lee.

The Iraqi government has reportedly issued warrants for 26 former and current top officials, including 11 ex-ministers, who are suspected of corruption.

According to the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), the warrants issued included 15 to director generals.

Sources told Asharq Al-Awsat that none of the warrants are for current members of the cabinet, and that some of the ministers live abroad and would require extradition in order to be charged.
