The Arab Commission for Human Rights and International Committee for the Protection of Iraqi Academics are very concerned by anonymous death threats received by several academics and human rights defenders in Iraq. The target is intellectuals in general, regardless of their field of specialisation – they are all important to their country’s renaissance. Iraq is known for producing high-calibre people not only in the scientific field but also in the human sciences. Unfortunately, the assassination policy has been adopted by all ideological groups, it definitely serves their faction or group, which is not necessarily national and in all cases against humanity.
The same phenomena began to be observed against Human Rights defenders especially independent groups, considered by the organised violence expressions as dangerous, that’s means not under control.
In three years of war and Occupation, violence in Iraq had killed more than 150 thousands. The ACHR and ICPIA are calling on the Iraqi and American Governments to initiate independent investigations into all kind of extrajudicial killings and serious human rights violations, including “disappearances”, arbitrary detention and torture, allegedly committed by the National and International “security” forces and arming groups in the context of the violence.
The ACHR and ICPIA urge the international organisations for academics’ rights and protection, the, to intervene to protect academics in Iraq. We ask also the Human Rights defenders NGOs to be mobilise to protect the new Human Rights Independent movement in Iraq.
Your intervention is very important to help not only academics and human rights defenders but also for the capacities of Iraqis to build the future.
