The United Nations Committee against Torture (UN) has called on the Iraqi Government to effectively implement the adopted law on the protection and support of Yazidi women and girls who have survived the atrocities committed by the terrorist group ISIS.
The UN Committee against Torture on Friday at its meeting made a statement on the reports it considered in Cuba, Iceland, Iraq, Kenya, Montenegro, and Uruguay.
The report on Iraq notes that it welcomes the "Law on Surviving Yezidi Women" adopted in the Iraqi Parliament in 2021 on compensation, support and protection of women and girls affected by ISIS terrorists.
The report calls on the Government of Iraq to effectively implement this new legislation by allocating adequate funding and ensuring the active participation of Yazidi women.
According to the Yazidi Rescue Service, ISIS, which attacked Shangal on August 3, 2014, abducted 6,417 Yazidis, and shot hundreds of them. To date, 3,548 people have been rescued, mostly women and girls.
In March of this year, on the 1st anniversary of the "Law on Surviving Yezidi Women", Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazimi met with Yezidi women and said that the state needs more laws to protect women and girls rescued from captivity by ISIS and to prevent terrorism.
Now, the execution and implementation of the law is not carried out at the proper level, the Yezidis have not received, and do not receive any assistance or compensation.
More about the law
In addition to paying compensation to victims, the law provides for compensation to the surviving victims, as well as measures for their rehabilitation and reintegration into society, and the prevention of similar crimes in the future.
The law also offers pensions, provision of land, housing and education, as well as a quota for employment in the public sector.
