Dramatic plane arrest of ex-Iraq minister

BBC

Iraq's former trade minister has been arrested at Baghdad airport on corruption charges as he was trying to leave the country.

Officials said Abdul Falah Sudani had been on a flight to the United Arab Emirates which was asked to turn back to Baghdad so he could be arrested.

Mr Sudani resigned as minister earlier this month amid claims officials in his department had embezzled large sums.

He denies wrongdoing. Investigators had already arrested one of his brothers.

Sabah Mohammed Sudani was held on suspicion of corruption at a checkpoint in the south of the country on 9 May......

Sorry Kev. I owe you a huge groveling scraping apology. Obviously I am the sick fuck, not to mention the megalomaniacal paranoid bitch. (At least today.)

You've probably forgotten about it already anyway but I won't cause I'm just that "looney tunes."
