The adoption by the Council of Ministers of the Law (Social Insurance) concerns the political blocs of the possibility of canceling the institutions of martyrs and political prisoners.

Recent demands have been made for a review of the laws of political prisoners and martyrs, given the privileges described by the beneficiaries.
The Dawa Party bloc, earlier this month, rejected the violation of the transitional laws that were legislated after the fall of the regime. She considered that the loopholes and legislative loopholes in some paragraphs of these laws are "common", and not a justification for the abolition of the law as a whole.
During its regular session on August 1, the Cabinet voted on the draft Social Insurance Law. The council affirmed that the law "will guarantee all workers in the private sector a corresponding pension salary for the pensions of state employees, in addition to guaranteeing the rights of the families of the martyrs to provide a suitable source for their livelihood."
In turn, the parliamentary bloc criticized the law of law, on Saturday, dealing with the victims of the former regime and accused them of looking at them by "Ain Awra."
"The Council of Ministers voted on the Social Insurance Law, which included substantive provisions that would abolish the laws of the transitional justice institutions, specifically my institutions," MP Khalaf Abdul-Samad, head of the State of Law bloc, told a news conference held in the parliament building with the participation of deputies from the province of Basra. Martyrs and political prisoners and victims of terrorism and then cancel all privileges and benefits allocated to those covered by the provisions of these institutions and approved in the Iraqi constitution.
"The government justified its cancellation of these institutions to achieve justice and provide financial resources added to the treasury of the state." He added that his bloc "does not know about any alleged justice intended by the government as it looks blindly at the abolition of laws and institutions that began to raise the voice of the oppressed in the face of oppression and the overthrow of them."
The head of the State of Law bloc said that "the government at the same time is keen to provide the large sums of money to kill the people and cadres of the repressive apparatuses dissolved, who colluded with terrorism and paved for him to seize the cities of Iraq through platforms of sedition not known and conspiracies in the dark rooms and in neighboring countries" .
The MP and leader of the Dawa Party said that "the law of social insurance included material and paragraphs in which errors and fundamental errors against the martyrs of all the swords, both in the time of the former regime and political prisoners and martyrs of the popular crowd," and called on the Council of Ministers, "reconsider the social insurance and the cancellation of paragraphs that intersect with Laws of the Iraqi Constitution legislator by the House of Representatives. "
The head of the State of Law bloc stressed that "the institution of martyrs and the institution of prisoners, institutions can not be linked to the law of social insurance in order to achieve justice," calling for "the need to secure the salaries of former regime martyrs and martyrs of the popular crowd and the release of their financial dues in proportion to the size of sacrifices."
