{Baghdad: Al Furat News}
The Parliamentary Economy and Investment Committee confirmed, on Wednesday evening, that the House of Representatives supported the questioning of the head of the Parliamentary Wisdom Bloc, Faleh Al-Sari, to the Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq, while it revealed what the dollar has been depleted by the currency auction.

A member of the committee, Ahmed Al-Kanani, said {to Evert News} that "all members of the House of Representatives support the request of Al-Sari in questioning the Governor of the Central Bank,"

calling on Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi to "be honest with the people about the one who caused the rise in the price of the dollar because it is a pledge in advance or is it transparent and honest with the people."".

The head of the Parliamentary Wisdom Bloc, Faleh Al-Sari, announced the completion of the interrogation aspects of the Central Bank Governor, Mustafa Ghalib, and that he called for the Presidency of the Parliament, to set a date next week for the questioning.

In turn, Al-Halbousi directed, in a session yesterday, Tuesday, to set dates for the interrogation of the head of the Media and Communications Commission, the governor of the Central Bank and the Minister of Finance, according to the council’s agenda.

He added, "The governor of the central bank is supposed to be a technocrat and a specialist, and his interrogation under the dome of Parliament will lead to his dismissal," adding,

"We asked the president of the council to set the date for the questioning as soon as possible," pointing out that

"all others denied his relationship with the bank governor and confirmed that he is not affiliated with his coalition."

Al-Kinani continued, "The Central Bank sold $44 billion in 2019, all of which went through forged invoices, and the Life Integrity report proved extravagance in the currency auction."

While he announced, "more than $312 billion has been depleted since 2003 in the currency auction and its fate is unknown, and that influential political parties control the currency auction and the Central Bank," noting

"the corruption of currency sales is diagnosed and needs similar funds to ISIS."

Al-Kinani also indicated that "mismanagement can be addressed; but the mafias of corruption must first be eliminated.

The collapse of the Iraqi dinar was expected due to the corrupt's control of the currency auction," blaming the Central Bank "major responsibility for this deterioration."

It is likely that the price of the dollar increased "after the government announced no salaries in January."

Today, Wednesday, the dollar exchange rate in Iraq returned to a rise after its decline yesterday, Tuesday, as the exchange rate on the Al-Kifah and Al-Harithiya Stock Exchanges in Baghdad reached 1295 dinars, or 129 thousand and 500 dinars per hundred dollars.

The price of the dollar in Baghdad fell yesterday to 1277 dinars, while the selling price in exchange shops in Baghdad rose also to 1300 dinars to the dollar, and the purchase price 1290 dinars.

With regard to the Anti-Corruption Commission, Al-Kinani pointed out, "This committee practices extortion and torture against the detainees according to information, and human rights must search for this matter and announce its report to the public opinion," saying,

"The committee practices political subjugation against some figures (he did not name them)."

A member of the Parliamentary Economic and Investment Committee concluded, "The detainees were subjected to extortion, according to what was transferred from the families.

There is also an unannounced list of the names of major merchants who were also subjected to extortion threats."
