Baghdad / Obelisk: Iraqis considered the Iraqi judiciary's announcement of an investigation into the audio leaks attributed to the head of the State of Law coalition, Nuri al-Maliki, as a good step on the way to strengthening the law.
Tension prevails in Iraq due to the publication of a series of audio recordings allegedly belonging to Al-Maliki, in which he attacked political leaders in the country.
After the publication of the fifth leak, the judiciary announced, on Tuesday, July 19, 2022, the opening of an investigation into the audio leaks.
The media center of the Supreme Judicial Council said, in a statement, that the Karkh Investigation Court had received a request submitted to the Public Prosecution to take legal measures regarding the audio leaks attributed to Nuri al-Maliki.
The center added that the fundamental investigation regarding the leaks is being carried out in accordance with the law.
Blogger Imran Al-Khalidi praised the judiciary's intervention to solve the leakage crisis and curb sedition, chaos and clash.
However, activists expressed their fear of announcing the results of the investigation. If it is in favor of one party, it is therefore against the other.

Al-Maliki denied that those recordings belonged to him, and said that they were fabricated. Al-Maliki's party said in a statement on Monday that we will not be drawn into blind strife among the people of the same nation.
The leader of the Sadrist movement responded to these leaks, calling on al-Maliki to declare seclusion and quit political work.
Gatherings of supporters of the Sadrist movement were observed in cities in the south of the country to protest against the recordings, especially in Nasiriyah, Amara and Kut, but Sadr Minister Saleh al-Iraqi said that there was no need for that.
In his article, writer and researcher Adnan Abu Zayd said that the recordings gained an affair in the voice of Nuri al-Maliki, after a reaction was organized by most of the political forces. legally and politically.
He said that the leaks are an attempt to deepen the personalization of the conflict between al-Sadr and al-Maliki .. But it indicates a struggle over the shape of the regime in the future.
