Maliki accuses Abadi of corruption, deteriorating security

Former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki criticized on Wednesday the incumbent Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi's government.

In a press statement, Maliki said that Iraq's sovereignty is becoming at stake, as security deteriorates and factions are repelling against the state.

As the government is busy with the war against ISIS terrorists in Mosul, it forgot Basra, Baghdad and Samraa, Maliki added.

Iraq's economy is becoming weaker as the government is unable to pay employees and hospitals stopped treating patients, according to Maliki.

The incumbent government weakness led to vulgar corruption that has spread to the whole of the system.

The Institute of development studies revealed in later 2016 the disappearance of over 120 billion dollars from Iraqi treasury during Maliki's post as Prime Minister, leaving Iraq nearly bankrupt to his successor Abadi.
