Statement of the Kurdistan Justice Group in the Iraqi parliament regarding the decision of the Federal Supreme Court
Concerning the decision of the Federal Supreme Court (59 and 110) on the oil and gas law that pertains to the Kurdistan Region regarding the extraction, export and sale of oil and its dissolution
All contracts concluded between the Kurdistan Region and the oil-producing companies in the region and fixing the region’s dues in the state budget.
Despite the annoyance of the state institutions in the region that the people of Kurdistan welcome this decision and hope that it will be in their interest to improve their lives.
Although the state institutions in the region are disturbed by the fact that the people of Kurdistan welcome this decision and hope that it will be in their interest to improve their lives.
Unfortunately, the oil policy in the Kurdistan Region was in the hands of a group of people, and the contracts were hidden without anyone knowing about it, how it is sold and where the money goes.
Everyone knows that the regional government has never felt the suffering of the people, and it did not give the Sumo Oil Company so that the people get their share, and for this reason there was a major financial crisis after the federal government began to cut the budget of the region.
According to Law No. 22 of 2007 The Oil and Gas Law was supposed to establish four companies to find and extract oil, gas and oil derivatives, but unfortunately for 15 years no action was taken in this regard, including the establishment of the Oil and Gas Revenue Fund, but it failed, and the government did not invite the Office of Financial Supervision to audit in this file.
We believe that the reason for issuing this decision at this time is the two parties in power and their incompatibility on positions, and the people are the biggest losers.
We support all decisions that are in the interest of the Kurdish people, their economy and their interests so that they can enjoy a decent life in the future.
