After many years of experience and investigative stories, I have the innate ability to recognize what is not right. For example, as I analyze available information, I can not only see the roots of corruption but also follow its influence on world events. This is what I present to the public.


What was your first job as a journalist?

Newsroom staff at AlSumaria Satellite Channel.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

Make sure people know everything about their leaders.

What story are you most proud of writing or working on?

In 2011, I won the press prize for an investigative story on the theft and smuggling of antiquities from the Iraqi National Museum. This story, which revealed the involvement of officials in the Iraqi government in stealing, smuggling, and selling antiquities outside the country, contributed to the major investigation.
