Baghdad, Oct. 14 – In a press conference in Jordan the head of the Iraqi Judiciary Council accused Iran of channelling in a variety of illegal drugs into Iraq cities.

“Iran is presently bringing in large amounts of different drugs using its surrogates under the cover of social and political research,” Dr. Madhat Mahmoud told journalists in Amman.

He also said that a considerable number of Iranian agents disguised as pilgrims are importing and distributing narcotics throughout Iraq’s holy cities and elsewhere.

The council chief added that the extent of Iranian operation in Iraq was so great that it was virtually impossible for Iraqi forces to crack down affectively on this ‘Mafia business’. He also accused Iran of garnering funds gained from the drug profits and then distributing it to rival Iraqi groups to win their support.

He further revealed that a number of drug lords who were arrested for their crimes admitted to acting as mercenaries for the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security.
