An investigation that inflames Iraqi demands to hold Nuri al-Maliki accountable

An investigation that inflames Iraqi demands to hold Nuri al-Maliki accountable

Amid Iraqi misery and popular discontent over political conflicts and rampant corruption in most parts of the country, Iraqis recalled former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki after the US DailyBest recently published an investigation into his involvement and relatives in corruption deals with an American firm.

The US Justice Department is conducting an investigation with the military contracting firm, Sayleport Global Services, to make sure it has allegedly played a role in bribing Iraqi officials in exchange for extraordinary contracts, the paper said.

She added that influential individuals – including Maliki – have relations with a Kuwaiti company called “Horizons”, which allegedly sold the access and facilities of a large number of US military contracts, and the story of the company Horizons and its relations with US military contractors in Iraq came from two amounts disclosed with their information on Despite the personal danger they pose.


She explained that she was able to verify the credibility of some of the allegations through documents and interviews with several people, including contractors and workers in the field of trade in Iraq, who asked not to be named for fear of reaction against them.

Saliport operates military facilities in various parts of the Middle East and Central Asia, but the company’s flagship projects are at Balad Air Base, a base in northern Baghdad that includes US-funded F-16s.

In January 2014, Saliport received a contract from the Air Force to provide security support, training and security services to Al Qaeda, including essential services such as food and electricity, where Saliport received $ 1.1 billion for its services.

A history of corruption

Many consider that the period of Maliki’s rule, which extended between 2006 and 2014, Iraq was exposed to many disasters and crises, including corruption crimes cost Iraq tens of billions.

The biggest crisis witnessed by Iraq under Maliki was the control of the Islamic state organization on large parts of Iraq.

Many are demanding an investigation into the reasons for the bloody fall of the Iraqi army in that period and blame Maliki for it.

Communication activists

After the newspaper revealed the involvement of Maliki and close to him, Iraqi activists commented on Maliki and accused him of corruption.

Activist Mohammed said that Maliki was the worst dictator witnessed by Iraq, and that he came on the back of tanks “Bush”, and destroyed the country in favor of Iran.

Blogger Gamal al-Hakim described the investigation, which was revealed by the US Department of Justice, as an alarming scandal and three-sided, the first is the Saliport company, the second is Maliki and his family, and the third is Afaq.

Iraqi writer Shaho Al-Qarra Daghi questioned Maliki’s accountability for his crimes and the corruption scandals he was involved in, noting that the Daily Daily revealed that Maliki, his son and son-in-law had dealt with a company that played a role in bribing US security contracts.

He called on the Iraqi judiciary to move to punish him and others like him for their corruption so that we believe that there is an independent judiciary in Iraq.

The media confirmed Mustafa Salem that the corruption of al-Maliki resulted in the destruction of cities and thousands of martyrs, adding that the investigations of the US Justice Department indicate his involvement and his son and son-in-law deals corruption.

Former PM Maliki accused of corruption, U.S. DOJ investigates


Former PM Maliki accused of corruption, U.S. DOJ investigates

Former Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki might be exposed as one of the corrupted officials according a recent investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice.

The Department of Justice is investigating a military contracting company, Sallyport Global Services, to find out if it played a role in the alleged bribery of Iraqi government officials in exchange for exclusive contracts that cost American taxpayers billions.

An investigation by the independent Government Accountability Project for The Daily Beast raised disturbing questions that go far beyond rogue employees of a Pentagon contractor.

Powerful individuals, including Maliki, are tied to a Kuwaiti company called Afaq which allegedly sold access and dictated terms for a significant number of American military contracts.

The story of Afaq and its ties to American military contractors in Iraq comes from whistleblowers, who spoke out at great personal risk, and we were able to confirm several details through public and corporate documents.

Of the more than 30 sources interviewed, including contractors and people in business in Iraq, all asked to remain anonymous, citing fear of potential retaliation.

In January 2014, Sallyport acquired an Air Force contract to provide security, training, and “life support,” which means providing necessities like food and electricity, on base. Sallyport has received $1.1 billion for its work at Balad. It predicts it will earn $800 million more by 2021.

Sallyport operates military installations throughout the Middle East and Central Asia, but its crown jewel is Balad Air Base, a large F-16 base north of Baghdad.

Balad is an Iraqi base, but it’s funded by the U.S. government.

Afaq is ultimately controlled by al-Maliki, according to 10 sources, some of whom had firsthand knowledge of al-Maliki’s involvement, while other sources’ information was secondhand.

Al-Maliki’s son, Ahmad al-Maliki, and later his son-in-law, Yasser Sukhail al-Maliki, were also involved with Afaq, sources said.
