, Index number: MDE 14/2290/2020

In this open letter, Amnesty International urges the newly formed government of Iraq to tackle impunity by taking concrete steps towards justice and accountability. Specifically, it is imperative that the government secures: accountability for the unlawful killing and injuring of thousands of protesters since October 2019; an end to the collective punishment of internally displaced Iraqis; and disclosure of the fate and whereabouts of thousands of men and boys who were forcibly disappeared during the conflict against IS.
