Today, Tuesday, the Parliamentary Health and Environment Committee confirmed its intention to file a complaint with the Federal Supreme Court against previous and current governments, due to the deliberate failure to activate the Iraqi Atomic Energy Authority law.
A member of the Parliamentary Health and Environment Committee, Iktfa al-Hasnawi, said in a statement received by the “National News Center” that “previous and current governments bear the responsibility of deliberately not activating the Iraqi Atomic Energy Authority Law (No. 43 of 2016),” surprisingly. The formation of the current Prime Minister, Mustafa Al-Kazemi, a Diwani order committee to establish a nuclear power station, and this is one of the tasks of the Atomic Energy Authority according to the law, which is not activated for unknown reasons!!!!
Al-Hasnawi added: “It was supposed to implement the law, activate the law of the Iraqi Atomic Energy Authority, and then start the construction of the electro-nuclear station, which is a very important and good step, knowing that the employees are experienced and trained in their fields of specialization, and the government should take a positive national step by activating this important law, In order for the authority to carry out its tasks to the fullest without the interference of the advisory body and the large number of committees that take the efforts of those who carry out tasks such as the disposal of radioactive waste carried out by the so-called (formation of nuclear activity).”
And she stressed, "It would have been more appropriate for Iraq to be named like other countries and according to the law (the Iraqi Atomic Energy Commission) with their efforts and dedication and with the follow-up of the Minister of Higher Education, the Governor of Basra and the Ministry of Health and Environment, and the radioactive waste was disposed of in Basra Al-Fayhaa, and unfortunately all their efforts are recorded for others. Under the names of the Committee for the Order of Diwani!!!?.”
And she added: “We will go to file a complaint in the Federal Court against those who caused the delay in activating the Iraqi Atomic Energy Authority law and documents, which severely prejudices the health of citizens throughout Iraq,” adding: “And their argument is the supervisory authority, and also according to the law (Law No. 99) center. Radiation protection has been the regulatory authority based on the nuclear file since 1980, and there is no need for a new regulatory law, but it is possible to amend Law 99 of 1980.”
Al-Hasnawi called on Prime Minister B, “to start implementing the law of the Iraqi Atomic Energy Authority, which was legislated on November 8, 2016 and was voted on by the Iraqi parliament for the third session, and announced in the Official Gazette No. 4431 of the Iraqi Atomic Energy Authority Law No. 43 On 16/1/2017 and so far it has not been implemented by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers,” she asked, asking: “What is the interest of this deliberate delay?!!!!.”
