Legal expert Ali Al-Tamimi stressed, on Saturday, the inability of the government or any party to delay or cut the salaries of retirees because of their legal and constitutional immunity, indicating that it is not possible to manipulate the pension.
Al-Tamimi said in a statement to / Information / that “the Iraqi constitution talked about the rights, freedoms and obligations of the state in Article 22 to Article 36 of it, which requires protection of aging and decent living in all fields.” Noting that “the Unified Retirement Law 9 of 2014 spoke at length about pension arrests.” These are the rates of deduction from the employee’s salary throughout his work in the job, so he will be given a retirement pension later on, as it is more like saving in the long run.
Al-Tamimi explained, “In this law 9 of 2014, there is a retirement fund and it has an independent legal personality. The person who manages it will provide salaries to retirees away from budgets and financial allocations from any party, as stated in Article 7 and later of this law.”…
He continued that “this Salaries are sacred and legally and constitutionally protected, and they need urgent solutions not to delay spending them because those who are waiting to receive them have calculated a thousand accounts if we know the difficulty of life and the high cost of living.
