Happy Wednesday Dinarians,
I checked the CBI.iq website today – and guess what?….
Dr. Turki’s photo was replaced today!
Announcing: “Governor Agency : Mr. Ali Mohsen Ismail” (aka Keywords)
Now, frankly it is my understanding that Mr Mohsen (aka Keywords) is only an “interim Governor” until the new Prime Minister Abadi appoints a new CBI Governor who will serve out a full 10 year term.
I have read news articles from back in early and mid December 2014 where Abadi had said that he wanted Dr. Shabibi to take over the CBI once he was acquitted of the legal charges which were put on him by Maliki several years ago.
The very same Judge who originally issued the warrants for Dr. Shabibi’s arrest had issued an acquittal in December 2014. This was immediately challenged by Keywords and Maliki – but that decision by that Judge as far as I’m aware was upheld and not reversed.
So, it is my conclusion that Dr. Shabibi should be fully exonerated of those trumped-up changes, and should be eligible to be appointed by Prime Minister Abaidi to be the Governor of the CBI.
Why Mr. Ali Mohsen Ismail now has his picture on the CBI.iq website has me at a bit of a loss. But, perhaps the title of “Agency Governor” which is placed before his name means something? I feel it should simply read: “Governor” if he is infact the Governor of the CBI.
Furthermore, I checked the CBI’s “News” section (in both the English and Arabic section) and did NOT find an official Announcement issued today, or even within the past few weeks stating that Keywords was the new CBI Governor!
If he was, should not that Announcement have been put on their website along with his picture?
I’m frankly suspeicious of Mr. Ali Mohsen Ismail because he was quickly appointed as the interim Governor as one of Maliki’s very last acts as Prime Minister last year!
So, I can’t help but think that with Maliki’s track record of installing corrupt people (aka Dr. Turki) why would Prime Minister Abadi want to keep “Maliki’s Wolf in the hen house”???
I’ll keep digging and watching – maybe this is important, maybe not. Do you have any suggestions? Let me know!
