Hundreds Convicted of Fraud in 1st Half 2012
By John Lee.
In the first half of this year, Iraq’s courts have issued 754 judgments in cases dealing with corruption and fraud involving public money, claims the Commission on Integrity.
The cases, referred to the courts by the Commission, resulted in 816 convictions.
In some cases, those convicted will remain in jail following completion of their sentences, until they have paid back the money illegally acquired.
