     The President of the Federation of Iraqi Chambers of Commerce Abdul-Razzaq Al-Zuhairi confirmed the participation of more than one billion dinars to help the poor families during the Corona pandemic, while he pointed out that the compensation law is unfair to traders.
     Al-Zuhairi told the Iraqi News Agency (INA), "The chambers of commerce throughout the country participated with more than one billion dinars in supporting and assisting poor families affected by the preventive measures."
     With regard to compensation for merchants affected by the attacks that accompanied the demonstrations last October, Al-Zuhairi said that “the Iraqi law did not set a clause referring to compensation for the affected people, but only referred them to Law 20 related to building damage,” explaining that “the goods in the buildings are more expensive than construction and the compensation is not proportional to the size of the loss.
