Iraq/Iraqi Kurdistan: Further information on Incommunicado detention/fear of torture/forcible expulsion/fear of forcible return and new concern: "disappearance"
Brothers Karim and Kamran Latif have been released, reportedly on bail. They are said to have been forced to sign an undertaking to give up all political activities, and relinquish their membership of the Iraqi Workers’ Communist Party (IWCP). Sadiq Nikbin is said to have been moved to a prison controlled by the PUK security and intelligence service, Dezgay Zanyari. He may still face forcible return to Iran. A Palestinian, ‘Isam Samir ‘Awda, has been held since 24 July, reportedly because his brother is an IWCP member.
