Expert says Shiite militias tax foreign oil companies in Basra


Several Shiite militias have taxed the foreign oil companies based in the Iraqi city of Basra, while the federal government keeps silent on the issue, an expert said.


The expert was clearly referring to the Iranian Militia in Iraq and Syria (IMIS).

Speaking anonymously to press outlets on Wednesday, the expert said the militiamen threatened the companies to halt their work if they refuse to pay taxes.
