10-16-12 LoriC: Shabibi has not been officially charged with any crimes or permanently removed from anywhere yet, only false allegations and an interim guy to keep his seat warm while Shabibi exposes his secret file on Maliki's corruption.
There is an ongoing investigation promoted by those who are trying to take over the Central Bank. Mark my words, he is innocent and one of the few people who has the country's best interests at heart.
If anything this will be the excuse Maliki's opposition needs to have him removed. Shabibi will come out on top and our investment will be realized.
This could get interesting though when Shabibi is asked to provide specific details of a covert plan only he and the IMF are privy to.
