Military Industrialization Corporation (MIC)

On 8 August 1995, Lieutenant-General Hussein Kamel, the former head of the Military Industrialization Corporation (MIC), an organization responsible for the development and manufacture of proscribed weapons, departed for Jordan. Hussein Kamel was the former Minister of Industry and the leader and organizer of Iraq's various weapons of mass destruction programs. In the aftermath of that event, the Commission was able to bring under its control a massive amount of documentation and material directly linked to proscribed programmes. This had been hidden inside Iraq since the autumn of 1991 and had been turned over to the Commission at a final hide-site, a so-called "chicken farm" at Haidar, on 20 August 1995.

The Military Industrialization Corporation was subsequently led by General Amer Mohammad Rasheed al Ubeidi.
