Iraqi sources have revealed that Qatar is embroiled in money laundering in the country through a telecommunication company with the help of Iraqi politicians and a number of Kurdish MPs, Al Arabiya News Channel reported Wednesday.

The sources said the aim of the money laundering operation, which was being done through a telecommunication company, was to evade taxes. The company is said to be owned 65 percent by the Qatari government.

The sources added that the Iraqi authorities are keeping the funds in the country’s banks until taxes are paid.

They said Qatar has tried through mediators to activate the company’s role.
