A deputy in the Parliament of Kurdistan files a lawsuit against the Kurdistan Regional Government and its Minister of Finance
Representative Omar Golby said during a press conference in front of the Sulaymaniyah Court, which was attended by Shafaq News Agency; "We in the Kurdistan Parliament consider that the administration of the region's affairs from Zakho to Khanaqin is managed by one administration and by one authority, and this requires that the financial situation in all parts and provinces of Kurdistan be equal."
He added that he filed a lawsuit today in the Sulaymaniyah Court about the lack of financial liquidity in Sulaymaniyah banks, the non-disbursement of employee salaries on time, the non-disbursement of dues to pharmaceutical companies and the non-payment of dues to contractors.
The deputy explained; "The Sulaymaniyah Health Directorate owes nearly 4 billion dinars to drug supply companies, and the Garmian Health Directorate owes one billion and 800 million dinars, and this means that these companies will stop supplying medicine to hospitals."
And he indicated that "the President of the Kurdistan Regional Government announced earlier the allocation of 60 billion to complete the Kalar Sulaymaniyah road, and the Ministry of Finance confirmed what the Prime Minister said, but we were surprised by the lack of financial liquidity in Sulaymaniyah's banks to complete the work, as well as other projects."
The deputy concluded his speech by saying: "The complaints he submitted to the judiciary were not motivated by a person or a political goal, but with the aim of finding out the possible deficiencies," calling on the judicial authorities to take their role and investigate the case, "because the judiciary is the only outlet," he said.
