The report indicated that the Municipality of Baghdad did not provide the audit team with the amounts of the total fines imposed on the violators in the field of waste management, which led to the lack of knowledge of these amounts and the percentage of the amounts collected despite our assurances where the imposition of the fine is not considered a sufficient deterrent measure without meeting the amount of the fine, which led to an increase in the number of violations By citizens
