Following this incident and based on the report on the details of the escape, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces decided to dismiss the commander of the Special Division, Lieutenant General Hamid Al-Zuhairi; This is due to the weakness of the measures taken in this regard, and he also directed that all negligent persons be held accountable and punished legally, and to re-evaluate the performance of the security services.

Al-Sudani directed the closure of the detention center at the Karrada Mariam Police Station inside the Green Zone, which witnessed the crime of escape, and the transfer of the convicts to the prisons of the Ministry of Justice, and the placement of the senior corrupt detainees in other detention centers as with other wanted persons, and the abolition of any privacy in dealing with them as was usual.
