The contract was based on the decision of the Council of Ministers No. 204/2017, which includes the approval for the Ministry of Education to conclude the contract of Musataha for thirty-five years on the back of the Iraqi school in Paris, “an exception to the Sale and Rent Law of State funds No. 21 of 2013 Amended,” where the Republic of Iraq has a property in the French city of Paris , and the Iraqi school is located within it , located in an ancient and important area where UNESCO is located.
The contract was concluded on the grounds that the school suffered debts owed to the Department of Social Security Receipts, which filed a lawsuit against the school demanding payment of 546,914 euros and obtained a judgment from the French court to pay the amount. The Cabinet issued Decree No. 402 of 2017, included the approval on the conclusion of the Musataha contract on the back of the Iraqi school in Paris , an exception to the law of sale and lease of state funds 21 of the year 2017, amended and in accordance with the provisions of Article 40 of the mentioned Law , to pay the debts of the school; based on what the Ministry of Education presented under its confidential letter No. 3023 and dated 8/10 / 2017.
Based on the previous decision, an official letter issued by the Ministry of Education issued on 11/3/2018 No. 5872 to the Iraqi school in Paris provides for the authorization of its representative Safaa al-Din Ali Najib to complete the procedures of concluding the Musataha contract for the back of the school on land no. 102 for the benefit of investor Ahmed Abdullah Assaf, to pay the debts of the school for rehabilitation and maintenance, and maximize the resources of the ministry.
The signing of the Musataha contract is part of a series of corruption that gnaws in the body of the Ministry of Education, which represents several unjustified administrative, financial and scientific irregularities and under unconvincing pretexts .
