Recently in Iraq the new Prime Minister Maliki has appointed Bayan Jabor, to head up the Ministry of Finance. Jabor was previously head of Iraq’s Ministry of Interior and not a favorite of the United States. I hope that he will be able to do what he has been saying and stop the corruption in the Iraq government. I believe he has his work cut out for him.
“I shall work with all my passion and my commercial experience to preserve the money of Iraqis,” the former interior minister told reporters when asked for his policy priorities.
“My priority is preserving Iraqi funds, as I preserved Iraqi lives when I was interior minister,” he told Reuters. “I will also fight corruption in the administration of the Finance Ministry as I did at Interior. That will be a priority.”
