The United Nations Development Program announced, on Wednesday, the opening of an investigation and taking the necessary measures regarding a report that revealed yesterday the involvement of employees of the United Nations Development Program in Iraq in taking bribes to pass projects related to the reconstruction of Iraq, since 2003.

A statement from the official spokesman for the United Nations Development Programme, received by Shafaq News Agency, said: “In response to what was stated in the article recently published in the British newspaper The Guardian regarding the stabilization program for the liberated areas of the United Nations Development Programme in Iraq, the United Nations Development Program would like to declare that we We take all allegations seriously and investigate them promptly, and will take firm and appropriate action if any of these allegations prove true.”

He continued: “UNDP has zero tolerance for fraud and corruption, and this applies to all UNDP employees, non-UNDP employees, suppliers, implementing partners and responsible parties.”

The statement explained, “Zero tolerance does not mean there are no risks. The United Nations Development Program has been transparent with donors, partners and the general public about the risks and operational challenges that have followed years of conflict in Iraq.”

He pointed out that “any allegation of bribery, corruption or fraud is comprehensively assessed and, where appropriate, investigated by the Independent Audit and Investigations Office of the United Nations Development Programme.” LINK

Frank26   It was a paradigm shift is what happened in Davos…INVESTORS AT DAVOS = AN ACCELERATION OF SUPPLY & DEMAND TO THE IQD IN AN INTERNATIONAL FLOAT  = VALUE ADDED TO THE IQD BASKET!

Paulette  The basket of currencies is what they intend to peg to instead of just pegging to one currency – the USD…This is what the CBI and the GOI has stated…If they are pegged to just one currency, if the value (purchasing power) of that currency drops significantly, so does the value (purchasing power) of the IQD.  If they are pegged to a basket a currencies, if one drops the others keep the IQD “propped up”.  This is extremely important to Iraq as they are predominantly an import country.  This is precisely what they stated years ago…Bottom line, the pegging to a basket is to maintain the purchasing power and stability of the currency and not a singular event to increase the IQD purchasing power.
