    Thanks Harry. This seems to be the rebuttal complaint to the CBI's decision to let the money exchangers take part directly in the auction. The 'terrorism' comment is ludicrous though. If the money exchangers were already funding terrorism the difference of about 20 dinars (cost of the bank middleman) in sell price isn't going to affect that. It is stupid stuff like this 'funding terrorism' complaint said by their "economic experts" that shows just how expert they really are. LoL

    Harry, great find. This appears to be "either" that the CBI is letting the Iraqi Street Dealers get directly into the auction "or" it is the big international currency dealers that get their currency deals directly with the CBI. Either way it means the Iraqi banks no longer have the CBI currency auction all to themselves. I would tend to think if this is the street dealers that the difference in street rate and CBI rate would evaporate since the banks would no longer get their middle man cut. Which would be good as a start. The only reasons it might not be street currency vendors is that it would cut into the bank profits and these street vendors were also who was blamed for funneling money to Iran. If it is the international money exchangers then we may see the IMF Article 8 move real soon. This will be interesting to watch.
