Iraq's Commission of Integrity (COI) has announced that an accountant at the Al-Amara branch of the Agricultural Cooperative Bank has been given a 30-year prison sentence for the embezzlement of 996 million Iraqi dinars ($680,000).
Her assets were also seized, and she will be required to repay the amount.
A former director of the branch had recently been sentenced to 21 years in prison in relation to the same offense.
