Al-Darraji Demands The Central Bank To Adopt A Real Rate Of The Iraqi Dinar

الدراجي يطالب البنك المركزي باعتماد سعر حقيقي للدينار العراقي | وكالة الصحافة المستقلةAl-Mustaqilla .. MP Muhammad Sahib Al-Darraji called on the Central Bank to adopt the real price of the Iraqi dinar, away from the prices offered in the currency auction.

Al-Darraji said in a tweet on his Twitter page, Tuesday, “The central bank must adopt a real price for the dinar, away from breaches of the window of selling the notorious currency.”

He also called for “disclosing bills and documentary credits provided by banks in exchange for transferring hard currency abroad and checking their credibility.”

Al-Darraji stressed that the bank’s failure to do so is that it “is considered an accomplice in the crime and we will have to resort to legal methods to remedy this defect.”

The window of selling the currency in the central bank faces many criticisms, while leaks stated that a number of banks acquire the amounts that are being traded in the currency auction for the purpose of increasing their profits.

He added, “This requires a serious stand by the executive government towards those who manipulate this issue.”

Al-Skini stressed that “due to the large number of these violations recently and their exit to the media in frightening numbers and numbers, this phenomenon must be reduced today with the existing decline in the dollar prices and the low level of a barrel of oil due to its connection to the global market.”

And a member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Kazem Al-Sayyadi, revealed yesterday, Monday, enormous money that had been smuggled by the corruption of the currency auction of the Central Bank of Iraq.

Al-Sayyadi told Al-Furat News that “the question of the head of the Parliamentary Wisdom Bloc, Faleh Al-Sari, to the Governor of the Central Bank was accurate; but unfortunately, the answer was inaccurate and vague and we noticed a favoritism for banks at the expense of the Iraqi people, behind which political forces stand to steal the people’s money,” he said.

While the representative of the Iraqi coalition, Zahra Al-Bajari, considered the currency auction as a threat to the bankruptcy of the country and told {Al-Furat News} “The currency auction greatly affects the economic situation and the Iraqi economy in general because this is a hard currency that goes out of Iraq.”

Al-Bajari demanded “to stop this auction because it affects the Iraqi economy in a large way, and we will have a pause in this matter, especially as it is trading in the halls of parliament and among the MPs interested in it.”
