Organization of Women's Freedom in Iraq

Samir Husan works as a HRD at the Organization for Women's Freedom in Iraq.


Human rights defenders in Iraq have been subjected to attack, harassment, arbitrary arrest and detention without trial. Despite the fact that Iraq became a party to the Convention Against Torture in July 2011, torture and ill-treatment in camps and detention centres remains widespread, including against imprisoned human rights defenders and democracy activists.
