The parliament member of the Democratic Kurdistan Party, Solaiman Sharief, assured the federal government is serious regarding seizing control over ghost employees’ case.
Al-Sharief stated: there are programs and efforts to deal with the case of ghost employees and employees of double payrolls in Kurdistan.
He added: people who benefit from social welfare are under cross-checking in the state’s institutions’ files to confirm their eligibility of not receiving a second payroll.
Reportedly, the Judiciary Oversight Commission of Supreme Judicial Council said that the numbers of ghost employees in Kurdistan are ambivalent and there is no accurate statistic. The commission pointed out that some NGOs gave an estimated number of ten thousand ghost employees, while the Commission of Integrity estimation was three to four thousand ghost employees.
