    In this context, the member of parliament for the Iraqi List Talal Zobaie told «Middle East» that «what is happening in areas belt Baghdad and down to the western border of the country is not spontaneous, but rather thoughtful and prompt Its aim is to terrorize people of those areas and coverage senior security failure suffered by the government and security leaders, which failed for ten years to provide minimum levels of security for the Iraqi people, and therefore no longer have solutions but to do more arrests in certain areas and certain component.

    The central bank starts to put the dollar at an auction for the sale of foreign currency at subsidized prices and the lowest of the real exchange rate in the market to support the dinar. "

    Observers fear stop CBI those auctions and then multiply the value of the dollar against the dinar. "

    The central bank is facing charges for the staff in conjunction with officials in the state with corruption, smuggling of currency, the Bank is currently subject to investigations in this regard.

    Employees complain and retirees who receive their salaries in dinars from the high cost of living, and that their salaries are no longer sufficient to meet their needs, and that the rise in prices has included real estate and rentals, as well as transportation, food and clothing.
