    Baghdad/Al-Masala Al-Hadath: Since 2005, the Electricity Administration in Iraq has witnessed many challenges and accusations of corruption.
    These accusations range from mismanagement, embezzlement, bribery, and squandering public funds.
    Over the years, billions of dollars have been allocated to improve electrical infrastructure, but the results have often been substandard.
    The country suffers from frequent power outages, which negatively affects the lives of citizens and the economy.
    Calls are increasing to uncover all corruption files related to electricity management, as citizens and activists demand the necessity of a comprehensive and transparent investigation into all contracts and projects that have been implemented since 2005.
    The calls aim to hold the officials involved accountable and recover the stolen money.
    Corruption in the electricity sector is part of a broader problem related to corruption in Iraq in general, as it affects all aspects of life and hinders sustainable development. It is necessary for the government to take serious steps to combat corruption and ensure transparency in the management of public resources to achieve justice and sustainable development.
    Legal expert Ali Al-Tamimi said on Sunday that forming a parliamentary committee to investigate would be a huge step to uncover all corruption files in the Electricity Administration from 2005 to today, and it is certainly a big step.

    He added in a statement to Al-Masala, that this step is intended for Parliament to review all contracts, receipts, contracts with companies, and note the disbursements that were estimated at more than 60 billion dollars.
    He continued that this committee has broad legal powers in accordance with the constitution and it has the right to refer all crimes it discovers to integrity, indicating that where works are in the distribution and transmission of electricity... this committee is facing cumulative corruption... and it is doing a tremendous job of monitoring previous governments.
    He explained that the success of this committee will restore the positive view of Parliament as an effective oversight body and will constitute support for the judiciary to take legal measures against those who destroyed Iraqis with fire and heat. These crimes, I see as terrorism and crimes against humanity, do not have a statute of limitations, and smuggled funds can be recovered, as well as those wanted abroad.
    He stated that he needs the committee to conduct its investigation secretly, away from the media, to use the reports of the Financial Supervision Bureau, and to focus on the major accused. Its work will not be long, meaning this committee is supported by the people.
    He stressed that everyone is waiting for the results of the important and great investigation, especially since it is like ice that cools the hearts of Iraqis that were burned by the summer heat without electricity... throughout the lean years.
    He stressed that the investigation carried out by the Public Prosecution in accordance with Law No. 49 of 2017, Articles 2 and 5, as these crimes do not have a statute of limitations according to Article 27 of the Constitution, and pointed out that the strategy of looking into past crimes is a positive behavior that helps deter crime and recover money...
    He continued: Constitutionally, Parliament can abolish the Ministry of Electricity and its Law No. 53 of 2017 and entrust the task to an emergency committee that will take urgent measures to solve the problem, or contract with an international company or joint stock company that will take urgent steps to solve the problem.
    Al-Tamimi continued, describing the crime of power outage as a crime against humanity because it killed and caused many illnesses, and any behavior that harms society in the long term is inhumane.
    He added that cutting off or shutting down electricity violates Articles 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 6 of the Charter of the International Covenant, and 3 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
    He concluded: It violates Articles 30 and 33 of the Iraqi Constitution, which is the right to live and a decent life.
