Cmte Rejects Govt Request to Delay Customs Law

The economy and investment committee of the Iraqi Council of Representatives announced on Tuesday that it has rejected the government’s request to delay the application of the customs law passed in 2008.
Committee member Mahma Khalil said, “we fear that the government was put under pressure from traders and some states to reverse the application of the law.”
The Finance Ministry decided in March to implement he new law from June after it was postponed last year more than once at the request of some countries and traders.
