A member of the Parliamentary Integrity Committee, Alia Nassif, on Monday called on the governor of the Central Bank to review the bank classification mechanism, which placed the limited activity banks at the top of the list, calling at the same time to re-evaluate the performance of the Director of the Banking Department due to the presence of favoritism and suspicions of corruption in his department. .
Nassif said in a statement that the information received, a copy of it, that “It is regrettable that the bank classification mechanism came upside down, as it placed the banks with limited activity in the higher classification, and the multi-activity banks that contributed to development and investments in the lower classification. This issue is not easy and is not limited to being Just a classification. Rather, it affects the economy directly in terms of granting confidence to ineffective banks at the expense of active and influential banks in the investment movement. ”
On the other hand, Nassif, the governor of the Central Bank, called for a “reassessment of the performance of the director of the banking department due to the existence of favoritism and suspicions of corruption in his department,” adding, “We have information on corruption cases that we will announce to the Iraqi public opinion after verification.” End / 25
