    Baghdad/Al-Masala Al-Hadath:
    The head of the investigative committee on port-related violations, MP Yasser Al-Husseini, shed light on the parties that object to investigations into port corruption, pointing out the involvement of the port director in contracts that exceed the limits of law and economics.
    Al-Husseini stressed that the Ministry of Transport was given a week to collect documents related to port violations, with the company director hosting the investigation. But it revealed pressure from political and governmental blocs, in addition to beneficiaries and deceivers, to intervene and prevent the investigative committee from performing its work.
    In a related context, Al-Husseini warned that the port director is seeking to conclude contracts devoid of transparency and economic feasibility, which will put Iraq in a dangerous international position. He added that if these violations are not controlled, the Iraqi ports will be exposed to international danger.
    On the other hand, Al-Husseini pointed out that the port director sought to hand over important projects and tasks to foreign companies, and they relied on consultants who lacked professionalism, which represents a serious threat to the Iraqi economy.
    Al-Husseini concluded by stressing that the investigative committee is not a failure, but rather that some parties aim for its failure, and he called for dissolving the formed committee and replacing its leadership in order to avoid procrastination of work, enhance transparency, and combat corruption in Iraqi ports.
    Earlier, Al-Husseini described the rampant corruption in Iraqi ports as a “ghoul” that threatens the Iraqi economy, pointing to the involvement of multiple parties in this disgraceful situation.
    In a television interview, Al-Husseini confirmed that “corruption in Iraqi ports is like a ghoul lurking in the economy, as government agencies and others affiliated with the private sector stand behind it.” He explained that “foreign companies manage loading and unloading operations at the ports, while Iraqi graduates, who suffer from a lack of job opportunities, find it difficult to obtain job opportunities.”
    Al-Husseini stressed that “the waste in the ports amounted to $20 million, and if this situation is not controlled, it will continue and worsen.” He explained that “the ports are abandoning local Iraqi competencies, who can manage the ports efficiently, in favor of using foreign companies that deal in hard currency and are limited to distributing berths in front of commercial ships to unload their cargo.”
    Al-Husseini added, “Political parties and government agencies may be behind this corruption in the ports, and we do not know whether the government is aware of it or not, and if the current situation continues, the Iraqi economy will not witness any improvement.”
    He pointed out that “the General Company for Ports and the current and former transport ministers are the main cause of corruption in the ports, and they must be held accountable before Parliament.” Al-Husseini confirmed that the Prime Minister called for reducing the wages granted to companies participating in the unloading operations, but the process took place the other way around and costs and waste increased.
    At the conclusion of his speech, Al-Husseini pointed out that “Iraqi ports are nothing more than remnants of health kits that were not delivered to foreign companies for investment.” He concluded by saying: “The best project for Iraq is the Chinese project, and some political parties are involved in obstructing it and the country’s development.”
