Combating Corruption in Iraq
Fact of the Day

Each Iraqi government ministry is appointing an inspector general to investigate waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement. So far, 21 inspectors general have been appointed and are beginning to work with the recently established Commission on Public Integrity to combat corruption at every level of government. This is an important step toward restoring public trust and represents another milepost in Iraq's progression to democracy and the rule of law.
