Integrity Commission to issue new arrest warrants against officials

Commission of Integrity

Integrity Commission will issue new arrest warrants against governors and heads of provincial councils soon, MP Ali al-Bideri revealed on Sunday. 
In a press statement, al-Bideri said that the commission will issue these arrest warrants against officials and governors over corruption charges.
However, he did disclose their names for fear that they would flee the country.
Public opinion pressure and the upcoming election have been a robust driver of Integrity Commission’s recent increased activity, he noted. 
Last month, Bideri said unveiled an arrest campaign targeting local officials few days before issuing arrest warrants against Anbar’s governor Suhaib al-Rawi and Salahuddin’s  governor Ahmed Abdul Allah al-Jabouri. 
Previously, Integrity Commission’s reports revealed that 250 officials were accused of plundering funds, including three ministers living abroad.  
The commission’s latest report said that 216 officials are on a no-fly list, including 18 ministers. 
Earlier this month, it was reported that the governor of the oil city of Basra Majid Mahdi Abd al-Abbass al-Nasrawi stepped down and gone to Iran after the commission of integrity began investigating graft allegations against him.
