BAGHDAD / Press-term
"Victim defends the executioner!" This is commented by senior political, a quench your TV ironically and sadly, after watching the dialogue channel Baghdadi businessman with Namir punitive, which appeared on some vague and ambiguous and confused, trying, gently push the accusations that dogged in an interview with Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki for "Champions" his son Ahmed, in a television appearance raises two weeks ago, a sensation among politicians and the public.
And Ahmed Nouri al-Maliki, a young mysterious in the Office of the Prime Minister, stirs controversy for years, but no one imagine that his father will appear on the screen to say he "hero" pursues a businessman accused waive the law and the security of the country, after the feared senior officers from prosecution, though he the state owes billions and has the weapons and silencers and smuggled cars, in the words of al-Maliki.
The businessman was the audience waiting for him to explain, is it a criminal really as Maliki said, why is the Studio Baghdadi not in prison, also asked Broadcaster who Interviewed by, or that he is innocent and that the Prime Minister of Iraq liar maligned the businessman did not like him and his son for some reason!
Businessman accused received the case throughout the two weeks understanding of the other, and many have said he is the victim, and Maliki يفبرك of the incidents and يحرفها to cover the corruption of his son, and proclaim it in the form of championships.
The people are waiting to announce punitive he is the victim of a lie-Maliki, but the surprise funny Alambkih, that the victim of this, claimed very little enthusiasm, to seek excuses for the owners, while trying to exonerate himself from these accusations large dogged by the words of the leader of a coalition of "rule of law".
The presenter asked him on the way questioning "What is fate الكواتم that found Ahmed al-Maliki in the company during the raid?". Vered punitive: There were not silencers, but weapons companies that have contracts to protect airports in Najaf and Mosul, and the Green Zone and the parliament building! Strangely adds: betrayed the memory of the Prime Minister, and made him talking about silencers do not exist!.
MP Jawad Alshahyla commented on this in a statement to the "long" that punitive leave the public "in حيص بيص, if his words are true, then this means that the memory for as long as betrayed Maliki during distribution charges on the political partners, and through his defense desperate for his positions and his aides."
Businessman justified on the screen how memory betray the president, saying, "It governs 30 million, how no memory تخونه?"!!
Either Alshahyla, an active member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, فيتساءل "How many times I wonder betrayed Maliki He defends the memory of his son Ahmed, and how often betrayed a mistake in the policy-making of the country's serious?".
Businessman continued Maliki accused rebutted the charges one by one, but remained adamant that Maliki is not a liar, even though he was not honest, but betrayed memory!
Punitive faced many questions about seizing drugs state inside the Green Zone, according to the claim al-Maliki. He heard a replay of the modern recording another deputy stressed that the punitive but those hired real estate "Maliki agents themselves" and got the power and privilege through relationships and partnerships with them. But punitive explained that he rented the property from the General Secretariat of the Council of Ministers, and presented documents to prove it displayed exit program, but he pointed out that "a small problem" emerged, while not renew his lease, and gave him notice 10 days only for evacuation, while he needs to 3 months for the transfer of his companies and equipment!
A parliamentary source said: punitive did not dare to clarify the circumstances, why did not renew his contract? Why Ahrjoh the only 10 days' notice to evacuate? And the mystery of the six billions of dinars, which punitive said only them it was a "just spreads rent, handed over to them."
Summary appearing confused and baffling and mysterious businessman accused, it involves a single message regrettable, in the words of parliamentary source, is that the ruling تغول to the extent that victims adult billionaires "يمتدحونه and seek his excuse, even as he paints their image خانعين under the whips of his son, Ahmed."
And between Tdaiv this conclusion and folds highlight the fact that Ahmed championships "fake, and the other tournaments in the homeland slaughtered, fakes, too, and that Iraqi losses merely the result of betraying the memory of Sultan." And ruler تغول to the extent that the victim divides that al-Maliki is not false, but it also confirms that it is not true, "the most outrageous portrayal of the contradiction that plagues the political process, lingering in the memory of infidelities and other" As expressed source of Deputies.
And seemed episode television mysterious They paint the effects of uncertainty on the face of the program as well, which ml of questions and spicy with the viewers, but that the end of the episode was filled with Lake businessman accused, who has been repeating: I do not know why Maliki said that senior officers feared arrest? But I do not know why I salute Maliki "misunderstanding has been resolved," and talked about three years after the incident. It seems it will remain part of the confusions surrounding the complex details of life and death, and profit and loss, in a country where killing half a million people have been killed since 2003, for puzzling reasons.
