Iraq - $800M In Money Laundering Every Week...
US: Iraqi Audit Points to Huge Money Laundering

Iraqi auditors believe as much as $800 million in U.S. dollars is being sent out of the country illegally each week, draining it of hard currency, according to a report by American inspectors released Tuesday.

The findings point to widespread money laundering and could focus further attention on oversight at Iraq's central bank, which is at the heart of a probe into alleged financial wrongdoing involving its former governor and other top officials.

The U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction said in a report that auditors in Baghdad fear up to 80 percent of an estimated $1 billion leaving the country weekly lacks proper documentation. . .

Turki also raised concerns about "what he called a triangle of sectarianism, corruption and violence, in which each element feeds off the others in a dynamic that threatens the well-being of the state," according to the SIGIR report.

BAGHDAD — The ousted governor of Iraq’s central bank on Friday criticized his removal amid accusations of financial wrongdoing as an attempt by the government to seize control of the institution.

Last month, Iraqi authorities abruptly fired Sinan al-Shabibi, a longtime bank governor, and issued arrest warrants against him and other bank officials. The moves came after a parliamentary committee began investigating alleged improprieties at the bank.

Al-Shabibi’s removal reignited charges that Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki is attempting to marginalize perceived opponents and grab control of the country’s independent institutions.

In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, al-Shabibi insisted on his innocence and that of other bank officials, saying his name is “very clear.”

He described the allegations targeting the bank’s leadership as “a farce that should be ended,” and said he fears the bank’s independence is now under threat.

“They want to control the central bank. If they control the central bank, they will destroy the economy,” he said of the Iraqi government. “I’m very worried about the central bank and the future of central banking in Iraq.”
