The head of the border crossings, on Sunday, the statements of the governor of Basra, As'ad al-Eidani, which criticized the performance of the General Authority for border ports and considered their actions to obstruct foreign trade through land and sea border ports located in the province.
"The statements are not the first time, and we are surprised by these statements, which was better for the governor of Basra to communicate his remarks through his representative in the Council of Border Ports Authority, which meets regularly and once a month each month, The representation of the governor of Basra in the Council is a government employee to the rank of deputy governor and has not previously put the representative of the province any problem or note reminds of the work of border crossings.
He added that the Governor of Basra received the share of the province of revenues of ports, which amounted to (351) billion dinars, which is guaranteed by the law in accordance with Article (18 / III) of the Budget Law for 2018, which reads "50% of the revenues allocated to border crossings In which there are ports that allocate these funds to develop border ports and their approaches and projects of the province and the Commission hopes the governor to allocate full funds to develop these outlets and change the reality, which reflects the image of the civilization of Iraq and reputation among the countries of the world.
Al-Aqabi stressed in the statement that the work of the Commission is not obstructed and hindered the trade movement as described by the governor of Basra and we are confident in our performance and the role played by the departments and the support of them in reducing smuggling and abuse of public money. "Last week, for example, the Commission seized 2 million ampoules (2) million citizens in the event of their arrival in the local markets and this is a small part of the functions of the Authority, which thwarted many attempts by manipulators to the health of citizens from the corrupt and stealing the people's money, according to the statement.
According to the statement, the language of numbers is the real measure of the role of the Authority in its work, where revenues from customs duties only to sea ports amounted to about (626) billion dinars and achieved for the month of June to December 2018, while the number of violations registered for the same year is (1486) (197 drugs and 452 customs violations). While the revenues generated from the customs duties for 2017, ie before the receipt of the Ports Authority functions at the ports of the sea for the same months, where revenues amounted to about (286) billion dinars and the number of violations amounted to (315) of which (32 drugs and 96 violations of customs), and through We see that the difference of revenues compared to the two years above amounted to about (340) billion Iraqi dinars after the receipt of the Authority in its administration of sea ports and the provisions of control and this difference in revenues was clearly going in the pockets of corrupt.
The statement continued, "The statements of the governor of Basra on the control of the militias on the capabilities of the border crossings between the punishment that al-Eidani is the head of the security committee in the province and is among his responsibilities to stop abuses and roaming misleading cars in the streets of the province by gangs and armed groups uncontrolled and out of the law is the core And the functions of the Commission within the limits of the border port. We have repeatedly called on the federal and local government and relevant authorities to enhance the security situation in ports and ports to avoid the risk of extortion and tampering with the ports. Security for everyone Batjhaha work. "
And, "As for the Authority's exceeding the powers granted to it according to the law and the waste of public money, the criminal proceedings against the Commission by the municipality of Safwan only issued a decision of the Criminal Court / Rusafa in its exclusive capacity No. 1502 in 2018/11/19 close the case based on Article (130 / b) Fundamentalism was to eliminate the word chapter.
He pointed out that the Authority and its role to abandon responsibility for contracts concluded in 2012 to develop the implementers (Safwan and Shalamjah) and the consequent retreat of contractors from their commitment to develop the implementers.
Al-Aqabi affirmed that the investment clause in the ports is the right of the Authority pursuant to resolution 347 without prejudice to the sovereign fees. A few days ago, an investment contract was signed for the Zerbatya border crossing. The contract is to automate the information in the implementation of administrative and financial procedures, Commercial "meaning" paperless trade "because the chaos is the goal of the corrupt and its continuity is very smuggling and smugglers, according to the statement.
He concluded by saying that "the closure of the border crossing points of the powers of the federal government and the governor is not entitled to close the port is not the powers of local governments." He expressed his readiness to meet Eidani if invited to discuss all matters relating to the work of border crossings and to overcome the obstacles that work Through joint and constructive cooperation, which contributes to its final outcome in the service of this country and the public interest.
