Censured ex-governor of Sulaymani moves to London
News and Comment by The Kurdistan Tribune: 25.5.2012 – Dana Ahmed Majid’s conduct as the governor of Sulaymani (from 2005 to 2009) was twice censured by the audit office: For using public money for his office and close aides and for mismanaging money allocated to tackle the drought that hit the Sulaymani region’s countryside. These reports were issued by Jalal Sam Agha, the Sulaymani audit office director, at the end of 2010.
Recently corruption charges were brought against Sulaymani mayor Zana Hama Salih, who was arrested and last month died mysteriously in a security cell. Some observers speculated at the time that Dana Ahmed Majid – who publicly switched his allegiance from the PUK to Gorran in 2010 – might also face legal proceedings. However, this has not happened so far and our sources inform us that Majid moved to London last December and hasn’t been home since.
