A member of the parliamentary legal committee Kefah Farhan said on Saturday that the ferry incident in the city of Mosul was sufficient to dismiss Nineveh governor Nawfal al-Aakoub from office.
The Iraqi Council of Representatives is due to vote on a proposal by Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to dismiss al-Aakoub and his deputies from office.
Farhan told Asharq Al-Awsat that "the prime minister's request from the parliament to dismiss the governor of Nineveh against the backdrop of the tragedy of the ferry is a legal procedure that allows the judiciary to hold and prosecute the defaulters and those responsible for the disaster."
"The general popular discontent with the tragedy of Mosul and the signs of corruption is an element of pressure on the parliament towards the removal of the governor of Nineveh," she said.
Farhan said that "the government's administration of the file of the tragedy of Mosul was successful and demonstrates the spirit of responsibility and firmness in dealing with national crises."
The Prime Minister issued a general commander of the armed forces, Adel Abdul Mahdi on Friday, a decree on the establishment of a crisis cell in the province of Nineveh, and the suspension of powers of the head of the local government, Nofal Alakoub until the completion of the provincial council investigations into the ferry incident.
Abdul Mahdi presented a proposal to the Iraqi Council of Representatives on Saturday to vote for the removal of Al-Akeb and his two deputies from the positions of the ferry in the city of Mosul.
The ferry sank on Thursday evening in the Tigris River on the side of the tourist island of Mosul, killing dozens of people who drowned in their travels while others are still missing and search is under way.Keywords: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
