Clare: Exchange offices in Baghdad are closed for fear of arrest


The owners of exchange offices in the capital, Baghdad, reported, on Thursday, that they closed the doors of their offices for fear of arrest campaigns carried out by the competent authorities.

Waad Al-Dulaimi, one of the owners of these offices, told Shafaq News agency, “We had to close the office for fear of arrests and confiscation of money by selling above the official price, with charges of illegal trade being charged.”

He added, “The price of the dollar has become unknown in the markets because there is no parallel market, as it is prohibited to trade in exchange offices except at the official rate,” noting that “the exchange shops that opened their doors do not sell or buy dollars for fear of arrest.”

Al-Dulaimi believes that “the way the government deals with the dollar problem is wrong, as it confused the markets and disrupted their work,” warning that the government’s way of dealing with the problem “will increase the price of the dollar instead of decreasing it.”

It is noteworthy that the exchange rate of the dollar rose to more than 156,000 thousand dinars after US sanctions caught 14 Iraqi banks on charges of smuggling the dollar abroad, before it decreased slightly to 151,000 dinars.

The bank is seeking to increase its sale of dollars to meet the local demand for it in the parallel market by introducing banking companies that were deprived of the currency sale window, and to increase the traveler’s share of the dollar to 3000 dollars instead of 2000.  LINK



Frank26   Article quote: “304…which stipulates the punishment and the imprisonment of anyone who publicly broadcasts or fabricates the facts or allegations that would be causing a decline in the national bank note or weakening the confidence in the state’s currency and its bonds.”  That language says we’re coming out with a new exchange rate with a new currency and don’t you dare touch it Iran.  That’s what it says.  That’s what it’s for…this article is powerful.  The timing is amazing.

Mnt Goat  Article:  “DELETING ZEROS AND PRINTING A NEW CURRENCY WILL RAISE INFLATION”  We have read articles years ago that a German firm was contracted to print the newer lower denominations and a Swiss firm to stamp the coins. So we know these are in the wings awaiting.
