The anti-corruption Integrity Committee in Kurdistan Region says it has so far this year brought charges in 79 cases of alleged embezzlement or misuse of public finances.
The committee says it has received nearly 200 cases from the three provinces of Erbil, Sulaimani and Dohuk in 2016 with dozens of other cases still under investigation by the group before bringing charges.
“We want to confront corruption systematically since we really think it is more dangerous than terror is to the security of the Kurdistan Region,” head of the committee Ahmed Anwar said.
