It is said that Iraqi Khaled al-Aatiyeh, a minister, charged the Iraqi government 59 million dinars to remove his hemorrhoids. Another MP performed a surgery that cost around 16 million dinars, taken from public funds. In another case, 10 million dinars were spent to fix MP Ahmad al-Aalwani’s teeth. This episode investigates this costly trend.
