Payout to 71 former prisoners is first of its kind from a defence contractor active in Iraq: Iraqi prisoners who allege they were tortured in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq are being paid $5.8m by the subsidiary of a US defence contractor accused of complicity in their mistreatment.


Iraqi MP Ali Shubbar, member of the Parliamentary Human Rights Committee, accused Iraqi female inmates in Iraqi prisons of "sexual lust" and continued by claiming that they �expose themselves to the police�. He also said that �some prisoners have sexual thirst. So they present themselves to the police to have sex with them and then they later claim that they have been raped.�


�The situation of women prisoners is a tragedy and there are many indications that cases of rape have become the rule rather than the exception.�


When women in Iraq are arrested, they routinely go through three gruesome phases, starting with humiliation, followed by torture, and often ending with rape. I have received disturbing information from two different, well informed sources: one from qualified social workers in Al-Kadimiyah Women Prison, the other from three national guards officers who worked in the prison.
