Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Member of Integrity Parliamentary Committee, Sabah al-Saadi, revealed that 183 judges are convicted with administrative corruption and involved in the Justice and Accountability law.
In a press conference held at the parliament, he said “The Supreme Judicial Council sent a document to the parliament, in response to the request of JAC Committee, involved names of 183 judges in the Federal Court under the measures taken according to the JAC law.”
“73 judges are involved in corruption cases but they referred to retirement and they currently receive 80% of their salaries while some simple employees were sentenced to imprisonment of dozens of years,” he added.
