Call of 7510 lawyers and jurists from 13 Arab countries to Arab League, European Union, United Nations and United States
7510 lawyers and jurists from the countries of Iraq, Saudi Arabiya, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Yemen and Sudan issued a statement demanding Iraqi armed forces out of Camp Liberty and espionage cameras and eavesdropping sound devices from
Excerpts of this statement are as follows:
The Iraqi government has transformed Liberty into a prison for Ashraf residents to gain Iranian regime’s consent. This camp, in contrast to the continuous declarations issued by UN Secretary General’s Special Representative to Iraq Martin Kobler, does not meet humanitarian and human rights standards. An environment with military and security forces stationed inside the camp controlling all its matters resembles a concentration camp.
Therefore, we issue an urgent international call for an investigation into those who approved this inhuman site, concurrent with the stoppage of the transfer of Ashraf residents to this prison.
We call on the Arab League, European Union, United Nations and United States to stop the transfer of Ashraf residents based on the UNHCR’s February 1st statement until the following conditions are met:
- Iraqi armed forces transferred out of Camp Liberty
- Cameras and eavesdropping devices removed
- Unfettered access to medical services, lawyers, residents’ families and international delegations provided for.
- Provision of infrastructure and restrictions on access to logistical needs be lifted.
