An Iraqi blogger from Najaf (in Arabic) had somehow found some documents that reveal fishy deals in which some public real estate were sold by the city council to Al-Hakim's party (the SCIRI) and to Al-Hakim himself by orders from Allawi and some of his ministers and the deals by the way, were finalized last March.

To sell property is okay but when the prices are ridiculously irrelevant, then it means that something really wrong was happening.
I still need to gather some exact information about the current prices of property in Najaf but with a rough estimation I can say that those deals were similar to say, buying a nice Mercedes for 50 bucks!

The documents seem quite authentic to me and this is very worrisome.
