Baghdad Enhances Auditing Powers to Combat Corruption

ERBIL — Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia' al-Sudani has issued a number of directives aiming to cement auditing institutions to counter financial and administrative corruption in the country.

"Maintaining the government's commitment to combat and prevent corruption, which undermines governmental institutions and the quality of public services to citizens, Prime Minister Mohammed S. Al-Sudani has issued directives to strengthen government internal audit institutions. These directives aim to ensure their coordination with the Federal Board of Supreme Audit, the Federal Commission of Integrity, and law enforcement agencies," read a statement released by Sudani's media office on Sunday.

The Iraqi premier's directives also aim to "enhance and broaden the internal audit mechanisms by upgrading the administrative stature of audit and internal control units across all government entities."

Endemic corruption in Iraq remains a significant obstacle to the country's advancement, resulting in widespread poverty and unemployment throughout the nation. Iraq's placement on Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index at 157th out of 180 countries worldwide, is a cause for concern for the government.

Even though the federal government of Iraq has made attempts to tackle major issues such as the misappropriation of public funds and money laundering, Iraq remains entangled in deeply entrenched administrative and financial corruption, which is frequently cited as the primary contributor to the country's dysfunction and inefficient institutions.
