harb cbi s employees not immune from arrest warrants Harb: CBIs employees not immune from arrest warrants

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) The legal expert, Tariq Harb, denied the reports which have stressed that the employees of the Central Bank of Iraq enjoy legal immunity that prevents issuance of arrest warrants against them.

Harb said that “There is no constitutional or legal basis for what was said by certain MP in a press statement who confirmed that the CBI’s employees are immune from the issuance of arrest warrants, since the Iraqi Constitution did not grant them such right.”

“The Constitution did not grant the MPs themselves the immunity where they enjoy a temporary immunity for period of the electoral term that does not prevent the courts from issuing arrest warrants against them,” he added.
