The legal advisor to the parliamentary committees, Hatif Al-Rikabi, revealed, on Saturday, that the British Serco company “piracy” air navigation in Iraq, noting that reports in the House of Representatives prove this.
Al-Rikabi said in a statement reported by the official "Al-Sabah" newspaper, "Airport administrations in Iraq, including Baghdad International Airport, have been subject since 2003 to random appointments, starting with the head of the Civil Aviation Authority, who does not have a specialization, to the director of Iraqi Airways, Air Navigation, and others," according to saying.
Al-Rikabi added, "Successive administrations have brought aviation in Iraq to what it is now of repeated violations and crimes of corruption and waste of public money, the last of which was the ground services in which a contract was made with a foreign company in addition to the British company (Serco) that pirated air navigation in Iraq. And there are reports in Parliament that prove this.”
He pointed out that "quotas have existed from all parties in the division of Iraqi airport administrations since 2003, and the resulting ban on flying in European airspace earlier because of these administrations and fatal errors, as well as the departure of many real competencies to neighboring countries."
He explained, "The regulatory authorities, including the Financial Supervision Bureau, have diagnosed several times the catastrophic failure in Iraq's airports, whether it is in Baghdad, Basra, Kirkuk, Nasiriyah, Najaf and Mosul, all of them have catastrophic mistakes, and as we noted earlier because of the successive administrations, and the House of Representatives and during hearings, hosts and conferences The last of which was for the former First Deputy Hassan Al Kaabi, when he diagnosed air navigation errors and contracted with the British company (Serco).
Al-Rikabi pointed out that, "Parliament has diagnosed errors in airports since the first session, and the executive authority of successive administrations in the transport and civil aviation sectors is still failing major failures that prevent them from being amended, and the last of those mistakes was what happened at Najaf Airport."
