New horrendous torture methods
Mrs Eman A. Khammas received an SOS message from an Iraqi prisoner and translated it into English. The Iraqi Ministry of Justice has installed new horrible torture methods, which he does not want the world to know.
Innocent, but sentenced to death
The Bs Tribunal has received the following letter explaining the corrupt judicial system and how people are forced to confess crimes they didn’t commit after severe torture.
This case is not an exception, but rather the rule in the new Iraq. Many innocent people have been hanged in this “blossoming democracy”. Baghdad TV reported on 6 February 2013: “The Ministry of Justice confirmed the death of 200 prisoners since 2011 to date. The Human Right Committee in the Iraqi Parliament holds the security authorities responsible for these deaths, caused by the use of torture and the total absence of human rights for the prisoners.”
An Iraqi professor comments: “I have no idea how to help this poor guy!!! His mother and wife left Baghdad with his kid in fear they would be arrested or kidnapped. They can’t even see him before his execution (God forbid). That's why his wife's sister wrote to me. The government released a few hundreds from the prisons (many of them had been locked up without charges), and arrested tens of thousands instead. The situation in Baghdad is very critical. I think the Americans gave Maliki green light to do what he is doing. I have told you before: calling to change the constitution, calling to dissolve the criminal and corrupt structures installed by the occupation is the only way to change the dreadful situation in Iraq.”
That’s why it’s absolutely necessary for all peace loving people in the world, for all the Human Rights bodies worldwide, to support the current protest movement in Iraq, where millions of people demonstrate every single day to oust the current criminal and corrupt Iraqi rulers and to close the American Embassy. Only when that happens, the Iraqi people can regain their full sovereignty.
