Iraq: Write for rights 2010: Act now for Walid Yunis Ahmad
Walid Yunis Ahmad has been detained without charge or trial for more than ten years. He was arrested by members of the Asayish, the Kurdish security police. For the next three years, his family did not know where he was or whether he was dead or alive. During his enforced disappearance, he was tortured. He is currently held at the Asayish Gishti headquarters in Erbil. Amnesty International is calling for Walid Yunis Ahmad to be charged with a recognizably criminal offence, or be released immediately and unconditionally.
