Place of publication: Baghdad, Iraq

Release date: August 2021
Eradicating torture will be one of the most effective tools to build public trust in the state’s ability to deliver justice and uphold the principle of fairness. However, when the authorities themselves break the law, it has the opposite effect. The prevention of torture in reality, and not just on paper, would contribute to peace and stability in the long term, and is therefore in the State’s interest as well as the victims’.UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, 3 August 2021.
