Real reform is the reform of the judicial system

BAGHDAD / News Network Iraq confirmed the Office of the Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, Tuesday, that it is not the prerogative of the Council of Ministers or the President to sack the judiciary Chairman Medhat al-Mahmoud, while noting that it can not implement reforms without the presence spend a fair and impartial.

A spokesman for the Office Saad al-Hadithi In a press statement today: “The Iraqi constitution did not give the President of the Council of Ministers, or cabinet met for the right to dismiss the head of the judiciary or interference in the affairs of the judiciary,” noting that “from the jurisdiction of the legislative and judicial branches of government.”…

BGG - Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abbadi, a heavy legacy of corruption and corrupt people piled up during the reign of his predecessor, Nouri al-Maliki, making way for reforms is filled with obstacles and mines.”  “Al-Ibadi form special committees to open files of the Central Bank, Sinan Al-Shabibi sacked former County, and marred by charges of him by mafia corruption that dominated in that period.“  WOW – that’s some good stuff there!!   That seems – while mentioning the CBI – that it is more about a “broad based” corruption probe. Nice that it points out “looking into the Shabibi accusations”… GREAT!!   the reason being – it is the very CORE of why we are still here.  fix that – this thing is over.  [How long after M is gone will it be before an RV will take place?]  Iraq needs value BAD!!  it can be quick.

Hub - …they said they wanted to develop the social sections of the economy in the next 4 years this is about right…but for a country like iraq to only see a 50% increase in the next 15 years is a very slow growth with their resources, then they want to have experts come in to help set up the infrastructures for iraq, now how in the world will 1166 to 1 currency entice any growth or any experts to come to iraq to straighten them out.  …with out a tradable, non-exotic recognized currency none of this will be accomplished.  as far as if it is a economy growth or isx, i am not sure…but to obtain 50% in 15 years with oil, gold, ag, and all the other stuff seems to be very conservative…they need to get off  high center and get after it.   …the simplistic economy lesson is how much does it take to by a coke. in us dollars we take $1.50, canada 1.70, in mexico 15 pesos, in iraq 100 dinar so the answer is ok go to the bank or store or dairy queen and buy a coke with dinar…nope, wont work, so this is the dilemma for iraq…make your money worth something.

BGG - In summation – “Abadi must also ensure that his predecessor stands trial for his corruption and the failures that helped empower Sunni extremists — and led to the catastrophe that has unfolded in Iraq“. That is the way to end it… How does this help us?   first - with Maliki, Mahmoud and Alak gone – the true obstruction is gone and the door for Monetary and Economic reform (both critical to Iraq’s very survival) is wide open!  [post 3 of 3]

Political sources: al-Maliki, trying to return to Parliament in the hope “immunity” and “challenged” in front of the judiciary in the abolition of office

Political sources revealed that former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is trying to escape from prosecution in the case of the fall of Mosul through his quest to return to Parliament in anticipation of immunity on the one hand and appeal to the judiciary to cancel his other hand.

This comes in conjunction with the description of Abbas Moussawi, media adviser to the owners in a statement to the London-based Asharq al-Awsat last sacking from the post of Vice President of the Republic is unconstitutional, noting that such impeachment must be subject to the law…

______________________________________________________________

BGG - Quote:  “...Maliki is poised to lose his ceremonial post as one of Iraq’s three vice presidents under a series of reforms that the current prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, is trying to enact.”   Or probably already has “lost his position”…there is NO WAY the WB/IMF will let this get overturned – Abadi will get worldwide support for this… it shows the very character of the struggle going on in Iraq RIGHT NOW.  I don’t think Maliki will survive this onslaught…AND I think if anyone can “dethrone” Maliki from in front of the PMU - IT’S SISTANI!!  He’s the driving force behind the support Abadi has and is the catalyst for these reforms!!   [post 2 of 3....stay tuned]
______________________________________________________________

Mnt Goat - This is my personal theory on what the CBI is ultimately is going to do – I believe they know they must float the value of the IQD and gradually let it rise. They will NOT ATTEMPT to push out a very high rate right (i.e. $3.91) initially due to the money laundering (the current CBI governor has not controlled) and the terrorists activities. The CBI does talk about starting the project to delete the zeros sometime in very early 2016. What will they ultimately do? Again my personal belief is strong that Abadi is going to clean up the CBI too and Dr Shabibi will be back as the governor of the CBI to continue his original plan as they are almost now back on track.  [post 2 of 2]
______________________________________________________________

BGG - Article quote:  “Dozens of people demonstrated on Monday in front of the Supreme Judicial Council building in Baghdad to demand the resignation of President of the Council Medhat al-Mahmoud…“  …once Medhat al-Mahmoud is gone – Maliki has ZERO fall back position. It’s really, really bad news for the Shia/thug/hardliners…these protests asking for Medhat’s removal are a big deal – I guess maybe the biggest deal of the day.

Mnt Goat - The CBI knows it must make some kind of move in the near future to go international. The pressure is enormous to do something.  So again we are seeing many articles published on debates going on about changing the dinar exchange rate.  Last week…they were debating the pros and cons of FLOATING the dinar rate and the disparity of the Iraqi dinar to other neighboring countries.  So what will they actually do?  Iraq simply can not continue to do business and move forward without a realistic currency value.  We know if they finally roll out to the international exchanges and then float the currency at a low beginning rate, it  will not be long before we see some significant value increase.  We will all then be subject to the international market rate at the banks at this point and so we can then go exchange our dinar anytime we wish and at any rate.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

Shredd - Article quote:  “…which will be an important factor in creating excellent investment environment and meet the aspiration of all parties.”  That is for sure. When the investment laws are passed, that will truly open opportunities for investors who have been waiting for protections.  The banking side has come a long way regarding balances and conversion protections, and now with these laws passed, will position Iraq for some much needed stimulus. Investment = lending = borrowing = commerce = jobs = revenue = taxes.  That’s a win/win!

Meet the man trying to bring Iraq back from the brink

Riot policemen stand in front of protesters during demonstration against the poor quality of basic services, power outages and calling for trial of corrupt politicians in Baghdad

On August 16, an Iraqi parliamentary report named Iraq’s former prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki, among dozens of officials responsible for the collapse of security forces and the fall of Mosul to Islamic State militants last summer. In his eight years as premier, corruption thrived and Maliki repeatedly purged the Iraqi security forces of those he suspected of disloyalty.

Iraqis now hope that Maliki and other officials will stand trial and be held to account for why militants were able to capture the northern city with so little resistance. (Maliki dismissed the parliamentary investigation as “worthless,” and he blamed Mosul’s fall on a conspiracy by Turkish and Kurdish leaders.)…

tman23 - BAGHDAD – Coordinators of recent protests in provinces throughout Iraq are fearing for their lives, as four have already been assassinated. Al Jazeera claimed that the victims were assassinated in retaliation for their role in the demonstrations. Iraqi civil rights activis Odai Zaydi, claimed that political parties are responsible for the assassinations “as they are originally against the establishment of a democratic government in Iraq.”……….  EXACTLY WHY……Laws are contested and delayed…. The whole idea of Iraq was a democracy in the Middle East……but the hardliners favor “regimes”……..And as Abadi said…. it may cost him his life BUT he is moving forward with reforms and democracy for the citizens of Iraq.

Millionday - THE BANKING FORUM IS IN TWO WEEKS AND IS A PRESENTATION OF IRAQ`S ECONOMIC REALITY AND THE BANKING DEVELOPMENTS — OBVIOUSLY INTERNATIONAL AS IT IS A GLOBAL FORUM.  THE OPERATION OF INTERNATIONAL BANKING WILL BE REVEALED.  SO THIS IS TO BE RELEASED INFORMATION OF THE NEW BANKING REFORM OBVIOUSLY DUE TO THE CONTENT AND FOR IT TO BE IN JUST TWO WEEKS — THIS IS EXCITING.  THE INTERNATIONAL BANKING SHOULD LOGICALLY COME AFTER INTERNATIONAL ACCEPTANCE.  THE DINAR SHOULD BE INTERNATIONALLY ACCEPTED BEFORE GLOBAL BANKING BUT WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT ON INK.  
______________________________________________________________

Mnt Goat - I will say that we are heading for a great window of opportunity for an RV come mid September and onward. Abadi’s government had until mid September to implement the needed laws to support the necessary reforms, as these reforms are part of his promises made during the negotiations to allow him to take control of the government and to be seated as the new prime minister.  Also, resulting from a second Paris Conference in mid June, they also gave him 90 more days to complete the reforms (on corruption) and get in place other laws to support the economy (i.e Investment law and Banking laws, anti-Laundering laws, etc).  I believe that if he can be successful we may also see the currency reform finally implemented.  Again I am telling you the RV is a by-product of this reform process and not the means in itself.  They desperately need these reforms prior to any RV.

Bluedog - NATIONAL GUARD LAW…I SAID LAST JANUARY 2014 THAT THIS WOULD BE THE KEY…CAUSE NO INVESTORS TILL PROTECTED.  IRAQ NEEDS TO SHOW INVESTOR THEY CONTROL ALL OF IRAQ AND NEED TO DO THAT FAST…SO NEED THAT LAW FAST.  THEN CBI CAN MOVE FORWARD.  FORGET ALL OTHER LAWS THEY WILL FOLLOW THIS…EVERYONE SAID OR THOUGHT WHAT DOES THAT LAW HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING…WELL YOU WILL FIND OUT YOU CANNOT SUPPORT THIS LAW WITHOUT A CHANGE IN CURRENCY REFORM…I LOOK AT HCL AS BOGAS PROPAGANDA… NATIONAL GUARD LAW IS WHAT WE HAVE WAITED FOR SO HCL COULD FOLLOW…AND CURRENCY REFORM ALSO…JIMO.

Mnt Goat - They are also telling us that money laundering and corruption in regards to the currency float is the major obstacle.  They have passed the Parties Law this week and they are pushing aggressively towards the Judicial Reforms next week, the National Guard Law (maybe tomorrow). We know by passing the Parties law anyone alleged of criminal activity (or under investigation) can no longer hold office or receive immunity. This is HUGE for insuring the downturn of Maliki.  So why is money laundering so important all of a sudden? Do they want billions of dinar going into the wrong hands when the value increases? Is the RV then dependent on this part of currency reform?  NO REFORMS NO RV…  [post 2 of 2]

We know this will get us all to the bank. How long will it take to get to the end of these reforms?  Who knows for sure but we do know this week they have told us they would like to put the dinar on a currency float and at least are considering it seriously with all the pros and cons of the subject matter.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

American Contractor - Washingston Post Article 8/18/15 Quote:  “Iraq also revived a long-delayed plan to redenominate the Iraqi dinar by knocking three zeroes off the nominal value of its banknotes, said Ihsan Shamran al-Yassiri, the head of Iraq Central Bank Issuing and Vaults Department. The plan is set to be implemented by 2017 after restructuring dinar by issuing two large banknotes - a 50,000 dinar note before the end of this year and 100,000 banknote next year – and canceling small ones.”   Small Iraq Bank notes will be canceled soon says Central Bank…the 250, 500, and 1,000 bank notes will be removed…there are not that many in circulation.

Investment Law is crucial as well.  Those 3 effect the Global economy. Yes many laws are still needing implementation for the nation of Iraq but not for the monetary reform.  HCL is very much needed for IRAQ!  Could it be put off?

I assure you the process is already in play. The men on the chess board are about to be moved around.  So this week looks very good. I expect announcements of some of the recent reforms and Reconciliation legislation signed into law. Also I suspect this week or in the next couple weeks, we are once again some movement into a fantastic window of opportunity to see a change in the currency value of Iraq...I feel we are at the very near end to this RV saga.  [post 2 of 2]

We wait for his trial on many charges. This is coming in the weeks ahead. I now have proof that currency reform is in fact one of the reforms Abadi fully intends to implement VERY soon.  I also have confirmation from the CBI that the IQD is no longer directly pegged to the USD but has been pegged to the SDR now since 2012 when Dr. Shabibi (then acting governor of the CBI) was in the process of the final steps of rolling out the lower denoms and coins. Well they are now on track to pick up the pieces and move forward with this once again.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

Analysts: al-Maliki at war again after being convicted of the report of Mosul

http://www.dinarupdates.com/showthread.php?18174-Analysts-al-Maliki-at-war-again-after-being-convicted-of-the-report-of-Mosul&p=128045&viewfull=1#post128045

BGG Notes:

Maliki came back from Iran where he met with most of his most ardent Shia supporters (not all Shias support him – as before).

The Dawa party (and Maliki) “facially supports” these recent reforms called for by the Iraqi Clerics and the demonstrators (the people)… However, it’s a political tactic. He needs to look like..

“HE’S THE REFORMER”, or at least line himself up with the reforms…

Then there’s these rants blaming Erbil and Turkey for the fall of Mosul. Maliki must think no one remembers Barzani going to the press when Maliki wouldn’t listen about ISIS on the move.

There are articles out that affirm they put the SLC at Abadi’s disposal… again a weak showing of being “on the side of reforms” – not the “focus of the reforms”…

On the other hand Maliki is secretly attempting to subvert Abadi  everything he does.

It is worth noting – there are numerous OP ED’s out recently pointing out that if Maliki really wanted reforms he would have done so long ago.

Maliki is in now in FULL DAMAGE control…

The Friday before the Mosul Report was coming out – he went to Iran to gather support. This move seems to have (temporarily) worked. This caught me a little off-guard. I didn’t think he had that kind of support from Iran once they pulled their support from his bid for a 3rd term.

He did not come back until he had some assurance of some kind – though no guarantee, he must feel he has some potential for survival.

This just goes to show you. I was told some time ago he had deep support from some very unlikely sources. It appears both Sunni leadership was “on the take” as well as some level of support from the Iranian Mullahs. Though they don’t seem to support another Maliki term – they don’t appear ready to throw him overboard just yet either. There is no guarantee they won’t though.

They have even sent Gen Qassem Soleimani into Iraq south of Baghdad to orchestrate a “quelling” of the demonstrations and supposedly to secure Maliki’s safety. However, I am not convinced his ultimate safety is Soleimani’s underlying mission.

This report of Gen. Soleimani being there is limited in it’s scope (how many times/and how it is reported) – so I view this with a healthy dose of skepticism. Also – this frantic move to maintain control over Iraq may well backfire on them. It is becoming clearer and clearer they have some agenda. This is surely not lost on the Iraqi people. Overall, they are typically not happy about external influence – US or Iranian. They don’t like it. One good thing – all of this has forced the Iranians to play their hand in a more public fashion. Now they all know…

Abadi was quoted just recently as saying…

…”the prime minister does not think now in dissent nor undo the reforms, and will not seek to raise Maliki’s name from the list of defendants fall of Mosul.”…

Meaning – he won’t take Maliki’s name out of this report… it will play out.

I don’t see – with the mounting charges, how Maliki survives this barrage. Mosul, Halabja, embezzlement from the CBI, the Speicher massacre, the prison break, it goes on and on and on…

Further – my comments regarding “Maliki as gone” – are clearly “forward looking statements” and ARE IN PROGRESS. Visible progress has been made – for now, Maliki is NOT A VP and is NOT WELCOME in official GOI meetings. Party meetings are one thing. GOI is another thing entirely.

Rather than get caught up in who’s right and who’s wrong and what the details are – what about the WHY?? WHY did Abadi move now?? Was it demonstrators?? No – I doubt it very much. Maliki can think he has everyone right where he wants them – but keep in mind this whole campaign of reform was kicked off by the WB/IMF telling Iraq to get their AML (Anti-Money Laundering) and corruption under control (both issues pointed DIRECTLY AT MALIKI). They were given until Oct 1st to get an AML law put in place. It would probably help Abadi to have an Investment Law in place as well.

Thus far Abadi has responded. Judiciary is next. He needs to keep up the pressure...

It is very positive.

Mnt Goat - As we know Maliki traveled to Iran with a delegation from his party. I believe his intent was to defect to Iran since he also traveled with his family. Once there he was asked to return to Iraq. He is now back in Iraq…  Abadi is moving quickly on the clean up of the Judiciary system to get the Judicial Reforms implemented. This will clear the way for any obstacles for many future reform objectives including bringing Maliki and his goons to their final demise thus stopping the stalling of needed legislation to complete the Reconciliation efforts agreed to be completed by mid September. These reforms are moving lightening fast.

Millionday - Article quote:  “The International Monetary Fund forecast on Wednesday, the Iraqi economy growth of 0.5% by the end of this year, thanks to expansion in the oil sector, and increase the contraction of economic activity in the non-oil.”  THE INCREASE OF NON-OIL IS ALL OTHER PRODUCTION OTHER THAN OIL CALCULATED WITH GDP.   THE IMF FIGURES REPRESENT THE ACTIVATED REFORM RESULTS…THE IMF IS HAPPY WITH THE REFORM PACKAGE AND HAS ADJUSTED ALONG WITH REFORMS PREDICTIONS OF GROWTH FOR THIS YEAR.

Seems that if they are using the dollar then we must still be supporting them financially. If that's the case then they don't really need to be concerned about the Dinar's value.]  The CBI runs auctions and uses the dollar to balance the rate. From an RV standpoint it really doesn’t matter that they are using USD and IQD. All that matters is where the CBI sets the rate, because that determines how many USD we get for each Dinar.  Long story short – their use of USD is not a bad thing for us.

Al Maliki steps into Al Hashemi’s shoes

Iraqi Prime Minister Al Abadi still has a long way to go, but he is on the right track

It is a curious twist of irony that the man who pursued the now-fugitive former Iraqi vice-president Tariq Al Hashemi may suffer a similar fate. Iraq’s former premier, and former vice-president Nouri Al Maliki is currently in Iran, where some have suggested that he may never come back from as Baghdad seeks to investigate his role in the fall of Mosul to Daesh (the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) last year. The move was a milestone for the terror group that allowed it to gain much support among radicals around the globe, as well as territory in Iraq and Syria…

Arthur - It should now be blatantly obvious that the one missing piece to the whole RV puzzle is the lack of a Hydrocarbon Law (HCL) in Iraq to release the budget funds to the provinces as well as a myriad other items that the HCL benefits. In light of where we are in the process we can now release breaking news gathered from sources within the process.  Without going into too much minute details, the delay in the full blown release of the next round of reforms was, among other things due to the instability in the political arena in the Kurdistan region. We have information that much of that has now reached a sufficient point of closure that the next round of reforms, including the HCL is now in imminent status with the signing of some documents and release by the PTB.  We are now in a countdown to the full blown economic reform introducing the Iraqi dinar to the international community.

BGG: says to jackflash101st Mahmoud already tried to resign.

BGG: Wow -

BGG: [the report] – emphasizes that what happened before the fall of Mosul was planned by al-Maliki in order to return to power and picking the third mandate until the door drop Sunni leaders in the western regions and the declaration of emergency law that allows him to control and put the Kurdistan region with a fait accompli,

BGG: which I said over and over – no one cared much (at the time) to listen…

BGG: WOW – as I read this whole report, it strikes me, the reason Maliki is coming back (or has – or will Thursday)… reference is made to the fact, if he stays gone his political influence ends QUICKLY.

Adam Montana - [For a long while I heard that over half of the HCL was done, but it is still a HCA.  Is it in front of Parliament or are the Tarriff Laws and people getting Fired more important?]  In my opinion, the HCL is going to be done as quick as the actual RV – it won’t get back in front of Parliament until they are sure they are going to pass it, and pass it quickly. I’m not the only one who believes the HCL is the last key to seeing the RV, which leads me to think that it will be a 1-2 deal.  Go HCL, then go RV.

tman23 - The NEW CBI website is extra special…and it is proof that change is about to occur… The Kurdistan Government secured the domain .KRG and has given until October 15th for all registered business to secure their domain…and then it is open to public. The reality of the IQD speculation is going to come to light… All we can do is wait and see if we speculated correctly and it delivers the ludicrous profits we all hope for. When the iisd…international institute for sustainable development…held by the general assembly of the united nations…finishes it’s meetings then the money will be released…this is what I was told…And that you can bank on!

Mnt Goat - WOW! I can hardly believe the news this week so far. So much news this week. Are we really on the track to finally see the project to delete the zeros from the currency and get our RV? Seems that way.  So the news of this week is the coming of the second set of reforms as Abadi promised. We are beginning to see these new reforms (phase II) take shape. Be patient I believe the redenomination meaning the deletion of the zeroes is in this second set of reforms.

BGG - Article quote:   “…the mini-financial committee set up by Parliament to follow up on money laundering in the central bank file or transfer large sums of money out of the country accuse Maliki of being behind it.  Stunning news…Maliki was involved in the largest money laundering operation in Iraq…they actually pinned the Money Laundering / Embezzlement directly from the CBI ON HIM!!
______________________________________________________________

Kaperoni - Article:  “Jubouri: The second package of reforms will contain a lot of detailed important decisions“   We can see now that these various committees are being formed to present to the PM reforms. And the second package appears to begin to including banking reforms..specifically mentioned here “guarantee deposits.” This brings me to the committee that met yesterday discussing the currency… We could be seeing the beginning of many steps to improve the economy, strengthen the banking system and improve the value of the currency. It will be interesting to watch these packages of reforms over the next several weeks and how they are implemented.

tman23 - BAGHDAD — The head of the committee investigating the fall of Mosul, Hakim al-Zamili has revealed that there is no evidence to suggest KRG President Massoud Barzani or former Iraqi Parliament Speaker Osama al-Nujaifi are accountable the fall of Mosul. It had been rumoured that Barzani and al-Nujaifi were included on the list, but al-Zamili rejected the claims. President Barzani insists that he warned former PM Nouri al-Maliki about the serious threats facing northern Iraq before IS launched their 2014 attacks, but was ignored.…….. Now we wait for the reports that will expose Maliki funneling Iraqi money to Tehran…….And that I assume will go over very well with Iraqi citizens and their fondness for Tehran

wmawhite - Well, well ,well…now the U.S. News and World Report is reporting the same thing:..“US News & World Report – Iraqi selling intl bonds and redominating currency…Reacting to the crisis, Iraq plans to issues bonds worth $7 billion — $5 billion in international bonds… Iraq also revived a long-delayed plan to redenominate the Iraqi dinar by knocking three zeroes off the nominal value of its banknotes, said Ihsan Shamran al-Yassiri, the head of Iraq Central Bank Issuing and Vaults Department“  the significance is that the IQD will be on the bond market. The bond market is twice the size of all of the world’s stock markets combined.   when the IQD is on the bond market the individual bonds are able to move freely.  This is the first step of the IQD reentering the world currency markets. Exciting and nice news. [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]
______________________________________________________________

tman23 - The new currency must come first as a prelude to the deletion of the 3 zeros from the currency… This is the biggest statement ever made yet so often overlooked! If they are speaking of new lower denoms, then they would need a rate other then 1166…and if they come first, then the 3 zero notes will carry high value before removing the 3 zeros at the exchange window…what is the time limit…72 hrs…7 days…who knows…but it is possible! The other scenario is seeing a 50,000 note come in October…if that hits the streets then it is not looking good no matter how anyone tries to spin it… Make no mistake…the world is on the edge of financial disasters… it is real and live! There are 33 consulates now opened in Erbil… All these countries are lining up at the feeding trough…IMO it is bigger then Iraq…something BIG is being prepared… and TIME IS A FACTOR!

Frank26 - The Monetary Reform remains in front of us.  It is our opinion that Dr. S [Shabibi] will be returning but we just don’t know when.  Again, IOO (In Our Opinion) the reforms will need an RI to start them.  From the article earlier today, “Let it Float”….this will put things in the hands of the international world and with this will come a faster rise in the rate…IOO.  With the actions being taken by PM Abadi in the form of his reforms expect to see the removal of many things, people, policies, laws, etc. he will make sure that nothing stands in the way of his reforms as we move forward.

Iraq: Report on fall of Mosul to ISIS calls for ex-PM Maliki to face trial

Others implicated include former acting defense minister and Mosul’s governor



Baghdad, Reuters—
Iraq’s parliament on Monday referred to the judiciary a report calling for the trial of former prime minister Nuri Al-Maliki and dozens of other top officials in connection with the fall of Mosul to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) last year, two lawmakers said…

Breitling - They [the CBI] are telling business and local banks to stop doing business with Iran…the main reason why is they [Iran] are trying to pump US dollars into iraq because they know they [Iraq] are trying to add value to the dinar and they [Iran] know one of the tools to keep the value of the dinar down was the US dollar…it’s a back door confirmation of what the intent is of what Iraq wants to do.   They are cutting Iran off at the knees.  It’s one thing if the CBI can scoop up those dollars and put them into the reserves…that’s a good thing but there is so much that they’re having a problem with it.  And it will keep the value of the dinar down if they don’t tackle it.

It’s going to become a democratic country – Insurgents don’t like that hipocrasy as long as they work with the new government. Our boots on the ground is to protect a new justice that’s about to come to bear.  JUSTICE….and the reinstatement of many reforms.  [post 2 of 3....stay tuned]

Round Table Chat w/BGG 8-17-15

Thanks to DinarRecaps.com for posting Round Table with BGG 

BGG: Jubouri: We have no right to delete any name from Mosul report

BGG: The head of the parliament Saleem al-Jubouri, on Monday, the House of Representatives does not have the right to delete any name mentioned in the report of the fall of Mosul, while pointing out that the report was written neutrally and did not exclude a paragraph or a name and did not succumb to pressure…

BGG: This piece was all about the mention of Maliki as the key figure in the report.

BGG: he and his people wanted his name off it and those currently in charge wouldn’t take his name off…

BGG: Very cool piece.

Robl: Do we know where Maliki is at the present? Iran, Iraq?

BGG: I am suspicious – he may be in Iran.

Of course not.  Six months ago, Abadi asked Dr. Shabibi to come back – but he said not under these conditions. Once I know the banks are secure and Aleck gone and get rid of Maliki’s son too…Dr. Shabibi said if you BUILD THIS FOR ME, I’ll be back…and I see that you’ve built what I want.  …SOCIAL MEDIA, YOUTUBE…you can find “keywords” there…when you see “KEYWORD” substitute DR.

wmawhite - The discussion about what type of notes are used on the streets is totally different from a discussion about the yet to be announced international exchange rate. There will be one international exchange rate for the IQD which is only applicable outside the country. That will in turn determine the type and size of the note to be used in country.  Folks, what you can take away from this discussion and that article is that the citizens are being told to expect changes in the currency they will use on the streets and why?  Because, the IQD will be put on the world currency market and the new value of the IQD will affect the type of note they will use inside Iraq. Plain and simple. [If the IQD does float, will there be value added & then it floats or will it float from 1166? If it floats from 1166 will there be demand for the IQD at that level?]  The CBI will never tell what they will do until after it is implemented. We will know the same time the rest of the world currency markets know.   [post 2 of 2]

So that article was telling the citizens that they should expect to have additional purchasing power equal to $75.00 where it used to be only $25.00…additionally, they are being reminded that the large notes will gradually go away…but they will have 3 times the purchasing power.  the CBI has over and over emphaized that the three zeros notes will continue to be legal tender…but has to [as the?] prices in the economy are reduced the need for the large notes go away and are replaced with LDs.  [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

Jester - [...is there any hope for the dinar?  ...is the dinar a scam like some are saying?]  I NEVER SAID THAT… BUT I AM NOT ON THE BS TRAIN TELLING IT WILL HAPPEN TOMORROW EITHER…THERE IS…ALWAYS HOPE…BUT YOU GUYS HAVE TO LISTEN TO ME ON THIS…IT IS GOING TO BE A WHILE...I HAVE BEEN RIGHT ON THAT BEFORE…

Poppy3 - VERY, VERY GOOD ABADI IS ELIMINATING OBSTACLES HE SHOULD HAVE DONE LONG AGO BUT WASNT POSITIONED TO DO SO TILL NOW.  MOVES HAVE ALL BEEN IN OUR FAVOR. VERY ENCOURAGING DAILY.  I AM RELAXED AND JUST WATCHING THEIR MOVES AND ACTIONS.   [How long do you think it will be before they get rid of Alalak?]  I AM SURE THAT WILL BE ONE OF THE NEXT MOVES. I THINK HE WILL NEED PARLIAMENT COMMITTEE AND MAYBE A VOTE (NOT SURE YET) I ALSO EXPECT HE WILL WANT A PERMANENT REPLACEMENT READY AT THE SAME TIME. WE WILL SEE VERY SOON I THINK. [post 1 of 2....stay tuned]

tlm724 - Article quote:  “Jubouri: The second package of reforms will contain detailed a lot of important decisions“  Quote:  “…al-Jubouri that the second package of reforms will contain a lot of detailed important decisions…that the second package of reforms will be more detailed, more mature and clearer than the first package, noting that this package will not be the last, but there will be a third package“   …so three packages of reforms, didn’t think they could all they need to do in just one.
______________________________________________________________

Aggiedad77 - Article: “Economist: deletion of zeros from the currency will reduce the dollar traded in the local market“  It would appear that we have a case of apples and oranges here…they don’t mix too well when put into a case…it was either designed for apples or for oranges, but as a mix, the lid just won’t close properly.  We even see the use of Dr. S [Shabibi] name here…saying he was ready four years ago but the project was delayed as they awaited the correct conditions…then we witnessed the ouster of Dr. S from his position as Governor of the CBI and we believe opportunities have been squandered ever since.  Well the time grows ripe again…will we see the return of Dr. S with the ouster today of keywords from his position as “acting” governor of the CBI…a job that apparently he hasn’t done too well in the eyes of PM Abadi.  Remember who appointed him…the removal of the 000′s was Dr. S’s baby…his project…but not in this manner or fashion…only the truth in action here will set any of us free…and as part of that truth keep in mind this is one person’s opinion…and he is not a part of the process that will bring Dr. S’s project to fruition.
______________________________________________________________

firefly - This is a VERY complicated process. Watch for events not dates.  [...what events should we be watching for now?]   I’m looking for the IMPLEMENTATION of certain laws…Necessary for the reform to succeed without flaw.  [Mosal and Anbar, International Law, Tarriffs, Amnesty, Implementation...]  and a few more!  The anti money laundering law is crucial…Investment Law!  Tariffs will probably be after the fact IMO.   …the meeting last Saturday went extremely well!  Everything started moving at lightning speed on Sunday correct?  I’m focused on Abadi and the CBI…period… end of story.  [how much time you think...? I will not do dates or windows…but SOON has an entirely new meaning now IMO.

Millionday - THEY ARE TELLING THE CITIZENS THAT HUGE CHANGES ARE COMING FROM THE REFORMS FOR THEM.   …ABADI SAID THERE WAS ANOTHER SET OF REFORMS COMING HOPEFULLY SATURDAY IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY.   …WE KNOW THAT THE CITIZENS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATING FOR A LONG TIME DEMANDING THE REFORMS.  [is it Sat as today Aug 15th? or Sat as Aug 22nd?]  I BELIEVE THIS SATURDAY — I DONT SEE ITS ANNOUNCEMENT HOWEVER.

tlm724 - …the second package of reforms that Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi wants to implement, will be launched very soon, where he is currently being prepared for this package, and that will not be the last…more reforms coming!  …with the full backing of the supreme religious leaders and the judiciary he will get this done!
______________________________________________________________

Frank26 - ...Told You already that IMO DRS [Dr. Shabibi] will soon return …Come back to the CBI.  IMO…”Wait for it.”  He will make the loudest explosion soon enough. He is not in Iraq at the moment.

tlm724 - Article quote:  “Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has sent two letters to the Integrity Commission to have this commission immediately begin investigating on a number of corruption files“   I have been waiting for this!  Quote:  ”According to these sources Haider al-Abadi has emphasized on opening the corruption files of Ahmad Maliki, the son of Maliki. Orders for the arrest of former Iraqi Central Bank director Sanan al-Shabibi has also been ordered…“  that doesn’t mean it’s so but we need to watch for any further developments!  all institutions are under the spot light and lets not forget that Maliki appointed Ali Alak as CBI governor after Turki.
______________________________________________________________

Millionday - Article quotes: ”Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has sent two letters to the Integrity Commission to have this commission immediately begin investigating on a number of corruption files regarding Nouri Maliki and Baha al-Araji.“  ”Orders for the arrest of former Iraqi Central Bank director Sanan al-Shabibi has also been ordered, according to al-Baghdadiya.“  SO OBVIOUSLY WE WILL HAVE TO SEE WHERE THIS GOES — SO I WILL SAY THE ONLY WAY THIS CAN BE VERIFIED IS THROUGH ACTION.  [Did I read that correctly!? "Orders for the arrest of former Iraqi Central Bank director Sanan al-Shabibi has also been ordered..."   I thought Abadi helped Dr. S to get out of charges late last year?]   THE HEAD OF CBI IS APPOINTED BUT WE HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE — WE WILL HAVE TO SEE WHERE IT GOES WITH SHABIBI — I CANNOT VERIFY THIS.

After his dismissal State law turned on Al-Maliki. It acknowledges responsibility for financial budgets and loss!!

Mp State law Nicole, the previous Government led by former Prime Minister and Vice-President of the Republic article Nouri al-Maliki responsible for strained state budget, at the same time revealing the presence of 300 in the State Constitution, have been distributed.

Al-kinani said in a statement: “the decisions of the Government and parliamentary reform has two dimensions, economic dimension because it represents a step towards addressing the SAG of the administrative and financial functioning of the State institutions including the Government itself, as well as another political dimension of such decisions will pave to cancel quota confessional that has made the country a standstill.”

“Prime Minister Haidar Al-Abbadi decisions timely and represent a genuine response to the will of the masses and in line with the directives of the good religious reference”…

BGG - [How long do you think it will take to remove Alak?]  that is the last piece of the puzzle – if you are asking me – doesn’t sound like long…there was also a SCATHING PIECE about Alak being a child and not at all qualified to be the Gov of the CBI.  Quite honestly – the happenings in Iraq are breathtaking…there is a lot going on all at once.  [The next week will be interesting to see how CBI plays out.]  the next week should be very interesting indeed.

Millionday - [Do you have any idea when they will implement the border tariffs and the International Bonds?] THEY HAVE STATED THIS MONTH BUT THE BEST WAY TO BE SURE IS TO WATCH IT HAPPEN IMO.
______________________________________________________________

firefly - IMO Abadi and Shabibi are in the same boat. Each is paddling in unison towards one goal.  Remember…it was Abadi that forced the courts to remove all previous charges brought on Shabibi from Maliki.  Shabibi has NEVER been OFFICIALLY replaced…just a bunch of proxy (fillers) for the position.  …according to the old constitution…the CBI Governor had to be voted in by Parliament.  Maliki to my understanding never had the power to appoint a permanent Governor.

Millionday - [So what part is yet to be done before they are ready to do the RV. I mean where do we fit in the scheme of things? ONE OF THE REPORTS WE HAD ANNOUNCED THAT WITH THE REFORM LAW BEING PASSED THE IMPORTANT LAWS WERE PASSED TOO — SO AT THIS POINT MANY THINGS ARE NOT BEING RELEASED – WE DONT HAVE A DATE OR RATE AND HAVE NOT HAD ONE OR A GUARANTEE BUT — SO MANY THINGS HAVE MOVED FORWARD FROM WHERE WE WERE — HUGE PROGRESS.
______________________________________________________________

Mnt Goat - I believe Abadi has a new target – that of the Judiciary and Court System of Iraq.  Abadi must deal with the judiciary now in order to get some of these other laws passed and properly deal with much of the corruption.  So how do you judiciously deal with corruption in your ministries if the court system itself is corrupt?   …Iraq had to be sorted out by Abadi and priorities placed, a plan was designed. He is taking on one bite at a time and being cautious. He now has support (and continues) to have support of the citizens in this work that lays ahead. We know without a shadow of a doubt that there will be no RV without Amnesty and other laws. This is given facts to us. So to get these needed laws implemented Abadi must clean up the crocked judiciary system (as well as his ministers).  Abadi has gotten momentum from the protestors and so it is time now to move forward on these judicial reforms and we should all be jumping up and down with joy. We have waited soooo long for this to happen.

The Exchange Rate of Foreign Currency in Economic Feasibility Studies 

Below are the central controls related to the exchange rate of the foreign currency to convert the project inputs and outputs from foreign currency to its equivalent in the local currency, and that is by calculating the net discounted present value standard and the internal return on investments in economic analysis that governs investment projects that costs excess one million dinars.

Estimate the shadow price of foreign currency:…

3.      Estimate the amended exchange rate of the Iraqi dinar to be used in technical and economical feasibility studies and for (1.134) dollar per dinar. This price should be approved for 3 years until re-appreciation by the competent authorities.
