"Al-Saadoun said that "the formation of the Federal Council guarantees the right of veto for all laws, as well as the possibility of reviewing the legislation and the legal way to correct the course of Parliament," noting that "all laws currently legislated are incomplete for the lack of full legislative authority according to the Constitution." http://www.al-iraqnews.com/news/newwss/political-news/225763-%D9%88%D8%A7%D8%B9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%82%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%88%D9%86%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%86%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%A8%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D8%AC%D9%85%D9%8A%D8%B9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%82%D9%88%D8%A7%D9%86%D9%8A%D9%86-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AA%D9%8A-%D8%B4%D8%B1%D8%B9%D9%87%D8%A7-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A8%D8%B1%D9%84%D9%85%D8%A7%D9%86-%D9%85%D9%86%D9%82%D9%88%D8%B5%D8%A9.html

"The cooperation with INTERPOL has resulted in the arrest of one of the most wanted men on corruption charges for the Iraqi judiciary, where he exploited his position to control and embezzle billions of dinars through arms contracts and others," he said. "The idea of ​​arresting corrupt fugitives is that we send a strong message to the two wanted fugitives inside and outside Iraq that they will not escape punishment or justice no matter how long they have gone or the geography is over. We will pursue them anywhere in the world. Others who have been accused of corruption "The transfer of the headquarters of the network from Tunis to Baghdad is only a recognition of the recovery of Iraq and the role of the growing country," Abadi told the Arab Anti-Corruption Network conference held recently in Baghdad.
