The Anfal Decision: Breaking New Ground for Women’s Rights in Iraq
The GJC publishes a fact sheet on the Anfal decision.
The Anfal decision was made by the Iraqi High Tribunal (IHT), in prosecuting crimes committed under the Anfal campaign against Iraq’s Kurdish population. The decision is a step in the right direction for women’s rights in Iraq. This fact sheet gives information on the decision, including rape as torture, rape as genocide, joint criminal enterprise and rape, and how the IHT can be a vehicle for legal reform both in Iraq and internationally.
