Iraq: Open letter to Iraq's new Prime Minister
In this open letter, Amnesty International urges the newly formed government of Iraq to promote and protect human rights. The organization expresses concern that civilians were killed by Iraqi armed forces in their fights against IS. Past violations have not been addressed, fuelling a state of permanent impunity for abuses and contributing to the current situation of discontent and instability. It is of utmost importance that human rights abuses are addressed as a matter of urgency.
