Iraqi retirees expressed their outrage over the latest budget, saying that it cut their indemnity, which they have been waiting for months.

"The indemnity is an essential right for retirees, which we have been deprived from for months," some retirees told The Baghdad Post, affirming that the government has repeatedly promised to pay the end of service gratuity, but in vain.

They demanded to pay the indemnity as soon as possible, especially after bringing the 2018 budget into effect.
