Iraqi claims deadline extended

On 3 July the Iraqi Parliament voted to extend the deadline for submitting property claims, which officially expired on 30 June 2005, for another two years. (With thanks: Maurice S.)

By 15 June more than 77,000 applications had been submitted. All those Iraqis whose property was wrongfully confiscated under the Ba'ath regime (from 17 July 1968) are eligible to apply for compensation.
