The head of Iraq's Commission of Integrity has resigned.
Judge Alaa Jawad Al-Saadi (pictured) submitted his resignation to Prime Minister, Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, on Sunday. The Prime Minister confirmed that he had accepted the resignation, praising Al-Saadi's efforts at the Commission.
In a statement, Al-Saadi said he was, "unable to continue in [his] position, after the campaigns of distortion, misrepresentation and defamation against [the Commission]."
The Prime Minister appointed Judge Haider Hanoun Zayer to replace him.
