The President of Iraq objected to the clause and although the law was signed, the clause has been referred back to the Council of Representatives for reconsideration, but so far no action has been taken by the Council. We have made clear our concerns to the...

the Earl of Erroll: ...only with proper powers. The point is that a hacker cannot find out who presented that token. So it is possible now to do what is necessary.
