     The spokesman for the ministry, Awni Dhiyab, told the Iraqi News Agency (INA): "The Ministry of Water Resources and the Supreme Judicial Council agreed to adopt the report submitted by the Irrigation Department to be a document within the lawsuit submitted to the infringers," noting that "this decision will have a positive impact on reducing abuses. "

     Dhiab indicated that "Minister of Water Resources Mahdi Rashid, asked the head of the Supreme Judicial Council that the report of the Director of Irrigation regarding abuses is not only related to those who crossed the water rations, but rather includes all types of abuses such as: transcending the river basins and building on the banks of rivers," indicating  "There are those who overflow the banks of rivers by annexing them to his home, without looking at the material and environmental value of these lands."
