    Baghdad / Obelisk: The Iraqi authorities have opened an investigation into the "theft" of $2.5 billion from the tax authority funds in a government bank, as officials announced on Sunday, in a case that once again reveals the rampant corruption in the country.
    The authorities did not reveal the identity of those involved in the case. The Ministry of Finance sent a request to the Integrity Commission, a government body concerned with combating corruption, to open an investigation into the file.
    The official book, dated October 12, talks about “the theft of 3.7 trillion Iraqi dinars (about 2.5 billion dollars) from the General Tax Authority’s trust account in the Rafidain Bank.”
    The Prime Minister-designate, Muhammad Al-Sudani, wrote in a tweet on Twitter, "We have put this file in the first priority of our program, and we will not allow the Iraqis' money to be robbed, as happened with the funds of the General Authority for Taxes in the Rafidain Bank."
    He added, "We will never slacken in taking real measures to curb corruption, which has brazenly spread in the joints of the state and its institutions."
    An official letter issued by the Tax Authority, which was leaked to the media, revealed that $2.5 billion was withdrawn between September 9, 2021, and August 11, 2022. These financial instruments were issued to five companies, which cashed them directly.
    In a comment on the case, a publication for “Century International” said, “The obvious questions are who are the real owners of these companies, and who allowed the issuance of sukuk to these companies? How did it go unnoticed for an entire year? Who are the politicians involved in this grand theft and corruption?”
    On Sunday, the Integrity Commission said it had opened an investigation into the case. She added in a statement that "the case is now before the judiciary," adding that it will attach "the information contained in the Ministry of Finance's book, after organizing it according to minutes with the investigative papers and depositing it with the judiciary... so that the latter will issue the appropriate decisions against the defaulters."
    She added that "the judiciary had previously issued summoning orders against senior officials in the ministry regarding the loopholes that led to this major breach and the outrageous abuse of public money."
    Speaking Saturday about an internal investigation at the Ministry of Finance on the case, former Acting Finance Minister Ihsan Abdul-Jabbar, in a tweet, accused a “specific group” of being responsible, without giving additional details.
    Iraq ranks 157 (out of 180) in Transparency International's "Perceptions of Corruption" index.
    "The rampant corruption represents a major root cause of dysfunction in Iraq," said the United Nations envoy to Iraq, Jenin Plasschaert, in her briefing to the Security Council. "Frankly, no leader can claim to be protected from him," she added.
    Often, prosecutions in corruption cases, if they occur, target officials in secondary positions, in a country where oil revenues constitute 90% of its revenues.
