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.”
