Committee member Mudhar Khazal Al-Azirjawi told Shafaq News agency, "the parliamentary investigation committee headed by First Deputy Hassan Al-Kaabi obtained sufficient information to open the files", indicating that it, “will also open and investigate all contracts and corruption files in the ministry after 2003".
