An Iraqi parliamentary panel called on Sunday for dozens of security and political officials, including former Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, to be referred to court in connection with the fall of the northern city of Mosul to Islamic State.

 

The indictment of Maliki, who remains a powerful figure in Iraq's complex political landscape, and other senior officials comes a week after Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi launched a sweeping campaign to combat corruption and mismanagement that he argued had made the country nearly impossible to govern.

 

In the panel's report, seen by Reuters and confirmed as accurate by three of its members, the committee also placed responsibility for the June 2014 defeat with former Mosul Governor Atheel al-Nujaifi, former acting defense minister Sadoun al-Dulaimi, former army chief General Babakir Zebari and Lieutenant General Mahdi al-Gharrawi, former operational commander of Nineveh province, of which Mosul is the capital.

 

Others accused include Nineveh police commander Major General Khalid Hamdani and former Deputy Interior Minister Adnan al-Assadi.
